[SOLD] 1980s Vintage Seiko 5 6309-8150 "Warp"

Seiko 5 6309-8150 "Warp"
Circa 1980s

Here's another offering that is named with a space theme. Somehow, this one reminds me of the moment just before the ship goes into warp drive, with all the stars being pulled into the centre. 

Warp puts all eyes on the centre of the dial, with thin straight lines converging. The rest of the two-tier dial is stark black, conveying perfectly the emptiness of outer space. 

Delivered with a cushion case and button-release Seiko 5 bracelet, Warp would be a good choice for vintage hunters who are also wannabe space cadets.
