Hi all,
Selling a classy vintage JDM Seiko 5855-5000 King Quartz from 1978.
Not getting the wrist time it deserves. A great starter watch into vintage Seiko. These quartz pieces have steadily been increasing in price as others recognize their value and quality. This beauty cost 56000 yen back in 1978, a significant amount in that time and it got you a luxury, high quality and accurate piece at the pinnacle of the golden age of quartz.

Movement: high quality 5855 quartz
Crystal: original Hardlex(?) crystal in fair condition
Case: stainless steel case, unpolished with original textured case finishing
Dimensions: 36mm case width, 38mm w/ crown, 42mm lug-to-lug

Strap/bracelet: original stainless steel bracelet with signed KQ clasp, should fit up to an 8 inch wrist [XQG430L] Textured finish to match the case.
WR: unsure, vintage watch. Service history unknown.
Serial number: 8NXXXX (November, 1978)

The Good: All original. Unpolished. Date quickset working perfectly. Keeping excellent quartz time. Beautiful applied quartz crystal and Seiko logo with Roman Numerals. Amazing textured dial which changes colour from brown to black in sunlight.
The Not-So-Good: Bracelet link is a bit bent in one section, Should be able to be straightened with care.

Have bought and sold a few watches here on Watchuseek, as watchanson on Instagram and as hasnon on SCWF forum. Have sold on eBay as zerofourtwenty (100% feedback).
There are pictures of the watch and others in my collection on Instagram as watchanson.

I am not a professional watch seller, just an enthusiast.
