The Seiko 6138-8020 "Panda" is the most highly sought-after vintage Seiko watch, but it's difficult to find original examples due to the prevalence of modified versions on the market.
However, this well-preserved and completely original watch from December 1972, with a fitted new old stock glass, is currently available for those looking to add it to their collection.
The watch is fully functional and keeping near perfect time after servicing, and it comes with its original stelux president bracelet. The listing won't describe what makes this watch special, but it's definitely a great opportunity for collectors.
