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 eye-popping Seiko Lady Lassale Quartz, Model 1230-5559. This is a JDM model with 3D Baton Indices and Hands in a square gold case with built-in Milanese Mesh bracelet and gold clasp.

The Seiko Lassale was produced to target the well dressed and classy lady without being too overwhelming. This is a Collectible.

This timepiece was given a good servicing, and its dial was meticulously cleaned, its electronic movement cleaned and touched up, demagnetised, and its battery replaced on 22 September 2023. It should be able to operate unhindered until the next battery change thereby providing the owner peace of mind.

Its well preserved gold case was also given a good clean-up and rub while maintaining its sharp lines and sexy curves. Most imperfections were removed without compromising the case shape and colour. The crystal is original and was given a good rub as well and is also in excellent shape.

The crown is located at its traditional 3H position and is easily accessible.

The case width and thickness are approximately 18mm (without crown) and 4.5mm respectively, and the bracelet can accommodate wrists up to 16cm.

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 show the watch’s case in excellent 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.

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 May 1984!

This is an extremely classy Seiko Lassale Quartz in full gold and 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!
