1981 Vintage Seiko 5 7009-2041 "Citygoer"

Seiko 5 7009-2041 "Citygoer"
Circa 1981

Blue and black diagonal stripes against a matte grey dial? Sign me up! This is one handsome wrist piece for the modern gentleman.

Calmly grey until you take a closer look, Citygoer is like the colorful socks I favor, hiding in the veil of subtlety until the observant eye catches it. Just the right person, with the right kind of complement for the excellent choice of ticker you have on your wrist.

The rest of the dial is simple, and plays the same act as the non-discrete dial. Once again gold and grey make a comeback, offering a very nice look from afar, tempting the wrist eye contact. 

Complete the look is the three-link bracelet, marking Citygoer as a nice workplace companion in the modern city.
