[SOLD] 1977 Vintage Seiko 5 6309-6240 "Zip"

Seiko 5 6309-6240 "Zip"
Circa 1977

White dials look stylish. Period. And matched with straight horizontal lines, it makes for a very neat looking watch face. Zip is the kind of watch that gets eyeballs glancing your wrist's way.

The stark white dial is decorated very nicely with thick horizontal lines, creating a sort of wave effect that really gives the dial a distinct class that you don't expect from an economical watch like this. 

The Seiko 5 emblem and polished hour batons are applied onto the face, breaking the artistic symmetry. The polished day-date window follows suit.

The baton hands add to the sporty look, light lumibrite faint from the years of application. Topped off with a three-link oyster bracelet, Zip is a very nice companion for those who like a touch of white on a hot summer's day, or tucked under a sleeve for the corporate workhorse.
