After an agonising couple of hours I just about managed to clean up this rather nice stainless steel Seiko, which was absolutely rife with dirt/grease in the strap and behind the dial. OK, my own example has a black face but otherwise the watch is identical to the watch pictured here. I was amazed at the multitude of almost identical variants available in the case of this model, from small differences in the day/date window, different placing of the crown, and the use of an "SQ" logo instead of "SQ 100" on the dial, which meant that this example shown here is the nearest I could get to an exact example of my own watch. I am now wearing the watch and it is working fine; just some scratches on the glass that are far less than on the pictured watch here. Could someone please date my watch for me? It has a separate number "850728" on the caseback together with the reference, "5Y23-8A50", and "A4" enclosed in a box, which is engraved around the caseback along with WR details, etc.. My arm and hand are thoroughly knackered after the clean-up but I am really pleased with the result and the watch fits me nicely:

Is it broken? The day and date are incorrect!

Anyway, very late 60's/early 70's. :thumbsup:

Later,
William
