The watch has a 21-jewel 6138b automatic movement which is working nicely. The watch measures 41mm wide excluding the winding crown and buttons, and 41mm high excluding the lugs. The case is stainless steel and overall the condition is good with general small marks, nothing too serious at all. The screw-on case back has the model number 6138-3002 which along with the serial number 638651, dates it back to 1976. The lens has a minor light graze but otherwise looks good. There are traces of a lens adhesive around the edge if viewed very closely. The dial is in its original finish which looks good to the naked eye… again, if viewed closely, there is some marking to the finish, and a little infill loss to the minute hand. Day and date apertures, initially set by turning the winding crown clockwise or anti-clockwise at first position. The chronograph feature is operated by pressing the top button to start and stop, and then the bottom button to re-set to zero. The watch comes on its Seiko bracelet which currently fits a wrist of 18.5cm although there is capacity on the clasp to make it about 2cm smaller. The watch comes in a new presentation box.
