Introduced in December 1969, the Seiko Quartz Astron is often credited as the world's first commercially available quartz wristwatch. Quartz watches use a quartz crystal oscillator to keep time that is much more accurate than traditional mechanical movements used in wristwatches at the time.
The quartz movement in the Astron was incredibly precise, with an accuracy of within 5 seconds per month, far superior to mechanical watches of the era.
The introduction of the Seiko Quartz Astron had a profound impact on the watch industry. It marked the beginning of the Quartz Revolution that led to the decline of traditional mechanical watches in the market and the rise of more accurate and later, more affordable quartz timepieces.
Seiko's Quartz Astron was showcased at the Baselworld watch fair in Switzerland in 1970, where it received international attention and acclaim because this watch change horology history forever.
Here we have the gorgeous Seiko Lady Tank Quartz, Model 4300-3350. This is a JDM model with 3D Gold Baton Indices and Hands in a square gold case.
This Seiko Lady was produced to target the well dressed and classy lady without being too overwhelming. This is a beautiful Collectible.
This timepiece was carefully stripped and the dial was meticulously cleaned, its electronic movement cleaned and touched up, demagnetised, and its battery replaced on 23 December 2023. It should be able to operate unhindered until the next battery change thereby providing the owner peace of mind.
Its well preserved gold tank case was also given a good clean-up and rub while maintaining its sharp lines and sexy curves. Most age imperfections were removed without compromising the case shape and colour. The crystal is original and was given a good rub as well.
The crown is located at its traditional 3H position and is easily accessible.
The case width and thickness are approximately 24mm (without crown) and 30mm respectively. The lug width is 14mm and the strap can accommodate wrists up to 18cm.
A brand new good quality genuine brown leather strap with gold buckle accompanies this timepiece.
The watch is 100% original Seiko components from this particular watch. No parts were replaced with aftermarket parts.
This timepiece has not been water-resistant tested due to its age.
The pictures provided shows the watch case in mint condition and well maintained. It has also been demagnetised to improve parts reliability, minimise wear & tear, and improve accuracy. The only drawback is the lack of documentation but the original box accompanies the timepiece.
Bear in mind that this watch has seen many of the previous owners’ ups and downs in life, and should be cherished and well taken care of for the next generation to savour such engineering beauty.
Yes, there are many other same models in the market, BUT almost all are not in the same quality condition and as well maintained as what you see here. Hence, it is a no-brainer that this one-of-a-kind timepiece will make an extremely beautiful birthday present for that special someone born in August 1977!
This is an extremely classy Seiko Lady Tank Quartz in near mint condition; so, be unique and wear something that is almost impossible to source or purchase it for that someone special.
This is a must-have for the Seiko die-hard fan, and in fact, any serious watch collector!
