[SOLD] 1970s Vintage Seiko 5 7019 "Masquerade"

Seiko 5 7019 "Masquerade"
Circa 1970s

A ball is a grand affair - graceful movements of bodies moving in synchrony across a decorated floor. This is the imagery presented to me when I looked at this watch. 

A circular gold tent, enshrouding the private affair, with white and grey marbled floor greeting the dancers as they glide across. 

The fluted bezel does well to make the watch look bigger on your wrist, and having it in the color gold adds to the novelty of it all. 

The brushed checkered dial is a nice complement to the decorated bezel, and the gold markers and hands finish off the watch in all its splendor.
