[SOLD] 1977 Vintage Seiko 5 7009-5862 "Valiant"

Seiko 5 7009-5862 "Valiant"
Circa 1977

Remember the feeling you had when you sat in your first shiny car? That pride you felt as you embraced something that was new and untouched? How the sun gleamed off the sides and seem to make every angle even better?

Light plays with this timepiece, bouncing off each angle of the watch and makes you fall in love over and over again.

From the gentlemanly dark grey sun burst dial to the nicely polished gold hour indices, Valiant is a sight to behold. 

Presented with a NOS aftermarket steel bracelet, the watch looks almost brand new. What's also worth noticing are how the left and right frame of the watch have been painted gold to differentiate it from the regular odd-cased Seiko 5s.
