Seiko Vintage Fans pls help :)

Hi Guys :)

I‘m just ‚newly-in-love‘ with vintage watches. It came only by accident b/c I saw a 7169-7060 Seiko Sportmatic 5 Deluxe on EBay- and had to have it! :rolleyes: Now it‘s really mine and I would really love to know everything about this watch, the movement, the Sportsmatic-series and so on. Does anyone know anything referring to that? I would be glad for comments from you guys... 

Thx a lot in advance and keep on going 

Newly-in-love from Berlin/Germany 

PS: watchleuths says it‘s made in January of 1966 - or is it 1976?

PPs: I guess you guys would say it‘s ‚over polished‘ - but for me as a newby it‘s okay like this... but is it a frank :huh: ? What do you think?

The Seiko 5, with all its variants, is well-covered on the internet, and you should be able to find out the information you are looking for. I myself have covered a few Seiko history moments in topics, but not the Seiko 5 series, and I am always aware that there are Seiko experts here on the Forum. Perhaps you ought to place your request for information in a more relevant section on the Forum because the Seiko 5 watches tend not to be generally linked in the mind with the term "vintage" - a fact that has nothing to do with quality but more to do with the fact that Seiko 5 watches have been in production right up to the present time.

Hi Always „watching“

and thx a lot for your answer! I agree, I found much on the 5-series- but the Sportsmatic seem to be the most unpopular under the 5s. Ididn‘t find much.
