[Sold] 1980 Vintage Seiko 5 6349 "Charming"

Seiko 5 6349 "Charming"
Circa 1980s

There's something about clean cut and simple designs that make you want to look twice. Not in succession, but maybe a few days later.

And when you do the gaze fixates. Somehow you find something worth sticking onto. The bad boys may look lavish and out there, ready for the world. 

But Charming, he's in it for the long run.

Classic white dial with polished hour indices and three hands make for a legible companion to the everyday. The spot of lumibrite make for a little color contrast, along with the grey / gold striped outer dial.

The crystal lies flat, parallel to the wrist, offering to slip under one's shirt sleeve for the office. The stepped steel case and duo-toned outer dial presents something for the weekend polo-t.

Charming is a versatile wristwatch for someone who doesn't need to own increasingly garish statement pieces to prove himself to the world.
