Seiko One Button Chronograph 5719A 5717-8990 Case 37mm Stainless Steel SilverSeiko
For auction is a Seiko One Button Olympic Chronograph ref 5719-8980 in a 5717-8990 case 37mm no date 45898TO manual winding caliber 5719A. An odd watch that was probably built up from parts; it came via a guy who worked at Seiko in NJ for decades. First the bad: its in a 5717-8990 case (which is for this same watch but with a date). Now the good: it is really very exceptional clean condition. The caseback still has a trace of blue plastic, the dial is probably the best 5719 dial in silver in the world, and it is on a lovely beads of rice bracelet. While this might bug the truest Seiko purists it is still a rather incredible package in an inarguably incredible condition.
