FS: Seiko 5 SNXS79J - “Made in Japan” - minty clean!Posted by Mr. James Duffy in forums.watchuseek.com
Hello! I am offering for sale a mint condition Seiko 5 SNKS79J on a genuine Seiko leather strap. The original bracelet is terrible and was discarded. Like most Seiko 5 watches, it houses the 7s26 movement which is not hackable or hand-windable. This model features an anthracite (dark gray) sunburst dial with full lumed applied indices. The case and dial layout is decidedly retro and reminiscent of a diver’s watch. I regulated the watch to be within a four seconds +/- per day with my wear pattern and activity level (or lack thereof). The entire case is high polish which is easy to maintain because any light marks can be gently hand polished away. It is a nice little watch (38mm diameter case) that has simply become redundant in my collection so now it has a chance to have a more prominent place in your collection! WARNING: The lug width is an annoying 19mm.
Asking $70 USD via PayPal or bank transfer, shipped to CONUS preferred. Non-US buyers will require an additional $15 USD to ship. Price is firm and non-negotiable but I can float you a small shipping discount if you purchase more than one watch from me. Does not include box. Additional photos upon request. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me here or e-mail me at: mrjamesduffy(at)gmail(dot)com
Thank you for your interest.

The company was founded in 1881, when Kintarō Hattori opened a watch and jewelry shop called "K. Hattori" (服部時計店 Hattori Tokeiten?) in the Ginza area of Tokyo, Japan. Eleven years later, in 1892, he began to produce clocks under the name Seikosha (精工舎 Seikōsha?), meaning roughly "House of Exquisite Workmanship". According to Seiko's official company history, titled "A Journey In Time: The Remarkable Story of Seiko" (2003), Seiko is a Japanese word meaning "exquisite" or "success" ("exquisite" is usually written 精巧 from Chinese jīngqiǎo, while the meaning "success" is usually written 成功 from Chinese chénggōng).
Seiko is perhaps best known for its wristwatches, all of which were at one time produced entirely in-house. This includes not only major items such as microgears, motors, hands, crystal oscillators, batteries, sensors, LCDs but also minor items such as the oils used in lubricating the watches and the luminous compounds used on the hands and the dials.
