Thanks for viewing my listing! I have been a net collector of vintage watches over the years and now I've reached to point where I would like others to enjoy my watches/accessories or finish off projects I don't have time for. Condition: Pre-owned; Very Good Condition. 36mm diameter excluding crown, 42mm lug-lug, accommodates 19mm strap/bracelet.Accessories: Original 19mm Seiko signed stainless bracelet; No box/paper/tags. This classic Seiko dates to October 1965 based on the caseback serial. 6602B 17 jewel manual wind movement with date complication running at 18000 bph with 45h power reserve. The Sportsman series was a mid-range watch meant for the younger/active crowd with a stainless Steel Chrome Plating (STP) cases with a full stainless casebacks so a lot of these have suffered from wear over time.
Fortunately the case on the watch shows little degeneration; the caseback markings are still in great shape (later revisitions would be stamped). Acrylic crystal has some light scratches; can be polished; a small crack on the edge near 11 o'clock is hardly noticable; replacement crystal are available. The classic silver dial is hard to photograph but it looks pristine and hands show little degeration.
No significan damage to the original unsigned crown. The watch winds well and sets time properly; there no quickset date it, it is changed manually; I did notice some staining due to age on a couple of numbers on the date wheel but all dates are well visualized. Movement looks pretty clean and the watch still keeps decent time (maybe +2-5 min/d); however, full service suggested for daily use. The original stainless 19mm stainless bracelet (as noted in in the catalogue pic) is included; it's unique in that it uses mini-spring bars to hold the links; it's sized to my 7.5 inch wrist with 1 extra microadjustment; there are no extra links. This a "Water 30 Proof" designation on the dial but not water resistance is guaranteed.
These Seiko's are hard-to-find vintage classics in decent condition; you get one hear with a well preserved dial - don't miss out on this Seiko classic! The item "Vintage Seiko Sportsman Calendar 17J 6602-9981 Hand Wind with Original Bracelet" is in sale since Sunday, November 1, 2020.
