1971 Vintage Seiko 5 Superior 6309-5530 "Cassandra"

Seiko 5 Superior 6309-5530 "Cassandra"
Circa 1971

You don't see a lot of the Seiko 5 Superiors around. They're pretty special with the water resistant print on the dial. Cassandra here even adds a wave pattern guilloche the face.

Sword hands sweep the oval dial, which wears large on the wrist. There's a certain strangeness about a gold dial with wave guilloche, but the one presented here pulls it off pretty well, studs and all. 

An oyster bracelet completes the look - a shiny wrist watch endeavoured with a graceful gold, hidden beneath the sportiness of a stainless steel case.
