According to most legitimate online information available, the Seiko 7019 movement made its debut in 1969.

This extremely sexy and rare June 1978 Seiko "Baby Monaco" has a classic Charcoal Black original dial, beautifully preserved 3D style silver baton markers, hands and day/date window that were given a good clean-up.

For Seiko Collectors and Vintage fans, this is a Seiko 5 Baby Monaco DAINI in excellent condition!

The squarish case and case-back are solid steel and in excellent condition after a good buff albeit a few minor scratches are noticed on the glass, case and case-back.

The crown is located at the 3 O’clock position and tucked away nicely to prevent damage or snags yet easily accessible. It is also equipped with quickset day adjustment by pushing the crown deeper whilst the Hands and Date adjustments are done via the traditional method of turning the uncorked crown accordingly.

The Day is in English and Arab, cool!

The movement was carefully stripped, cleaned, oiled, re-assembled and basic calibration conducted in September 2022. It should be able to operate unhindered until the next servicing thereby providing the owner peace of mind.

Equipped with the famous 7019 workhorse movement, it has 21 jewels and operate at 21,600 beats an hour giving it excellent accuracy!

The case width and height are 38mm (without crown) and 41mm respectively. The lug width is 21mm; and the genuine leather brown /black strap can accommodate wrists up to 21.0cm; hence, it is suitable for both men and women.

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 parts or modified thereby it is considered in near MINT condition.

Due to its age, this timepiece has not been water-resistant tested.

The pictures provided shows the watch case in immaculate condition (no dents and major scratches), and the movement within squeaky clean 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.

Seldom can one find a vintage watch that offers this and more. Yes, there are many other same / similar models in the market, BUT none are as well-kept and maintained as what you see here, and with an attractive price to boot. So, it is a no-brainer that this one-of-a-kind watch will make an extremely beautiful birthday present for that special someone born in June 1978! Another no-brainer is the fact that its value will appreciate over time.

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.

Do also bear in mind that it will cost between S$ 120.00 to S$ 150.00 for a proper servicing, an estimated S$ 80.00 to calibrate (depending on watch condition), and S$ 100.00 to clean and polish including tightening of bracelet links - these costs do not apply when purchasing this timepiece. So, if anyone was to sell such a timepiece at a low price yet claim that it has been serviced, one has to ask what kind of servicing was conducted, if any.

This is a highly sort-after Seiko 5 Baby Monaco with a classy vintage style but modern leather strap; so, be unique and use something that is almost impossible to source.

This is a must-have for the Seiko die-hard fan or for any watch collector for that matter!
