[SOLD] 1974 Vintage Seiko 5 6309 "Patriarch"

Seiko 5 6309 "Patriarch"
Circa 1974

Elders have a stoic aura about them - strong and silent, yet knowing everything. Like the giant grandfather clocks in our yesteryears, these sentinels of time stand watch over the current generation, nary a sound of complaint.

So-named because of its strong grey dial, the Patriarch exudes a sense of solemness about it. Its face blends in the back, while the strong gold lines mark the face, lines of age telling time. 

Presented in traditional three-link bracelet, this timepiece is one of those that grow on you. Like a childhood story that beckons to be read - when all things around you have changed and lost its soul, you know there's always the past you can linger on to.
