1971 Vintage Seiko 5 6309-8230 "Anubis"

Seiko 5 6309-8230 "Anubis"
Circa 1971

This guy is exotic. A thick gold chapter ring, marked by deep black lines, surrounds a matt black dial, thin stripes demarking the hours alongside the batons at 12, 6, and 9O'.

And those lugs.

The quiet sophistication of Anubis brings it its name. There is a certain elegance in the way black and gold are use in tune with the varying thickness of straight lines. Very decorative, very eye-catching, very addictive. 

Definitely something you'd grow into.
