[SOLD] 1971 Vintage Seiko 5 6309-8230 "James"

Seiko 5 6309-8230 "James"
Circa 1971

This guy looks like he'll pair pretty well with some guy's socks. While common on a knitted jacket, the pattern seems to also go well with wristwatch dials. 

Who'd have guessed?

And check out the roman numeral printed at 12'O. The markets and hands aren't trying to take attention away from the dial, which is a good thing, because you're really buying James for the awesome black and grey pattern.
