The daydate is usually set at 3 o´clock. The date can be set with a fast set pusher. This WRISTCLASSIC is powered by a AR 219 (SEIKO 7016 A) movement, running strong and keeping time well. The watch comes with a handcrafted leatherstrap in unworn condition. It’s a true WRISTCLASSIC with perfect proportions, timeless styling, and a great reference to the late 60s.
