Vintage Seiko watch

Here’s a Seiko that you don’t see everyday. It’s a boy size watch that measures 30mm across excluding crown. It is powered by the 2119 hand wind movement.

Not much is known about this movement. I had the opportunity to play with it and all I can tell you is it does not have quick set day and date feature.

Watch uses acrylic crystal with a rectangular loupe underneath.

A reader emailed me to confirm that this watch was made in 1969.

Here’s what he wrote (price mentioned is in Singapore currency):

My dad bought this watch for me in 1969 for $42. In those days, people my age (still in primary school) don’t own a watch. A lorry driver is paid about S$70 a month. Just imagine….
