Hi guys.. Sharing some pics of my latest purchase. An early Seiko 5. This was for sale on local facebook page and I got it for MYR177 plus MYR10 for shipping. That's less than USD50 all in. I'm not a fan of these ridged bezels but I was drawn to the clean face as these are getting harder to find. The case back is from Nov '67.

This Seiko was part of a lot of 3 watches off the bay...I was actually attracted to the Citizen but the other two Seikos were plus points as they had the 6119 movement which has to be my favourite Seiko movement. This Seiko was a bit beat up with a heavily scored crystal but the dial and hands looked good. In the picture below the chapter ring is a bit out of alignment. A bit weird as the ring is keyed to the dial in these models. Watch was running but would get a service nonetheless. Caseback loo
