During the late 1960s and 1970s, Seiko was known for producing a wide range of sport divers, but none were as memorable and highly sought after as the ones that featured the "Rally" distinction. These timepieces, characterized by their checkered bezels and dials, created an instantly recognizable combination of vibrant colors and cool style. This particular variant from March of 1969 serves as an excellent example, clearly illustrating their undeniable appeal.
The case of the watch has a well-proportioned tonneau shape, adorned with a circular brush finish, and topped with a wide-knurled bezel. The bezel insert steals the show with its navy blue and silver checked pattern, displaying minimal signs of wear. The dial boasts a lustrous metallic silver sunburst appearance, enhanced by a glossy lacquer finish. The minute track follows an alternating navy blue and silver check pattern, perfectly aligned with the applied markers. The wide baton-style hands are meticulously stripped and polished, creating a striking contrast against the vibrant orange sweep seconds hand.
This is an opportunity that shouldn't be missed if you're looking to add an exceptional "Rally" timepiece to your collection.
