According to most reliable online sites, Seiko introduced the 6106 movement in 1967.

As most Seiko die-hard fans know, the Seiko Actus was manufactured and assembled in Japan and solely meant for the Japanese Domestic Market (JDM).

The Seiko Actus was manufactured in both SUWA and DAINI factories because both factories competed against one another (think Apple and Macintosh) that brought out the best designs and movements during that era. Thus, the value of each vintage watch is determined by the movement within. So, the buyer must exercise due diligence when purchasing a Seiko Actus, Seiko 5 Actus etc. and which movement calibers within, and the number of jewels because the value is determined by these important factors.

For Seiko Collectors and Vintage fans, this is a Seiko 5 Actus JDM SUWA 23J in stunning condition and is highly sort after due to its unique dial and its design scarcity.

The reflective indigo blue dial, 3D baton style silver indices, day/date window, hands and case are in immaculate condition after undergoing a deep cleaning to bring out the hidden true beauty.

Its silver case underwent ultrasonic cleaning and a good rub while maintaining its super sexy curves and lines. Most imperfections were removed without compromising the case shape. The crystal was replaced and given a good polish.

The crown is located at its traditional 4H position and is nicely tucked away to prevent damage or snags yet easily accessible. The date quickset works as it should by pushing the crown in for adjustment.

The day is in English and Kanji - cool!

Its movement was carefully stripped and meticulously cleaned via ultrasonic immersion, oiled, re-assembled and calibrated on 5 September 2023; hence it underwent an overhaul and not a general servicing. It should be able to operate unhindered until the next servicing thereby providing the owner peace of mind.

Equipped with the 6106 movement, it has 23 Jewels that operate at 21,600 BPH. The time-grapher, after hours of calibration, shows very impressive readings of 0 seconds every 24 hours and amplitude of 141 with a straight centered line! Such readings are exceptional even by brand new modern automatic watch standards whereby the accepted tolerance is -20 to +40 seconds a day! This is a testament to the quality, excellent power reserve, the meticulous care provided over the years, and the painstaking calibration conducted.

The case width and height are approximately 38mm (w/o crown) and 40mm respectively. The lug to lug is 18mm and the bracelet can accommodate wrists up to 21cm; hence, suitable for men and the modern women.

The Seiko 5 Actus Signed SS bracelet was cleaned via ultrasonic immersion, given a good rub and is now in excellent condition.

To the best of our knowledge and expertise when overhauling the timepiece, the watch is 100% original Seiko components from this particular watch. No parts were replaced with aftermarket or modified parts.

Even though the seals and gaskets are present, this timepiece has not been water-resistant tested due to its age.

The pictures provided shows the watch in near 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 and original box. A nice purposeful carrying case or box will be provided instead.

Yes, there are many other same models in the market, BUT almost all are not in the same quality condition or is well maintained as what you see here. Hence, this timepiece will make a beautiful birthday present for that special someone born in July 1975, and its value will appreciate over time! 

This is a beautiful Seiko 5 Actus 6106-8680 indigo blue dial with original bracelet in stunning condition; so, be unique and wear a watch that is almost impossible to source in such fine condition.
