1979 Vintage Seiko 5 7009-3171 "Chocolate"

Seiko 5 7009-3171 "Chocolate"
Circa 1979

Brown isn't exactly a popular color when it comes to watch dials, which makes this offering that much more rare and special. Fans of the rich color should jump at this chance.

Chocolate is a nice blend of brown and gold accents, the light rusty color providing the backdrop to a modern looking dial with a centre stripe and large hour indices in gold print. Adding to the modern look are the 24-hour indicators printed on the black outer dial. 

A light orange chapter ring adds to the variety, helped by the stepped bezel of the solid stainless steel case and the banded bracelet.

Very uncommon, very nice, very worth collecting.
