The Seiko Quartz 5Y89-0A50 SUS was designed and built for the Japanese Domestic Market and was not sold overseas; thereby it had easily reached Collectible status within a few years after it was discontinued.
For Seiko Collectors and Vintage fans, this is a Seiko Quartz 5Y89-0A50 SUS SCF0077N35-6150 Military in NOS condition, and is highly sort after due to its unique layout and rarity.
The black dial, Arabic numerals markers, multiple arrow and baton hands, and case are in NOS condition. However, the original Seiko leather strap had disintegrated and only the original buckle remains.
Even though this is an NOS stock, this timepiece was nonetheless, given a deep cleaning and its battery replaced on 26 September 2023. It should be able to operate unhindered until the next battery change thereby providing the owner peace of mind.
This simple yet beautifully shaped SS silver case was also given a deep cleaning while maintaining its super sexy curves and lines. Most age related imperfections were removed without compromising the case shape. The crystal is original and in immaculate condition. It too was given a good rub as well.
The crown is original and is located at the 3H position and is nicely tucked away yet easily accessible. The hands quickset works flawlessly by pulling out the crown and adjusting according.
The case width and height are approximately 33mm (without crown) and 40mm respectively. The lug width 18mm and the strap can accommodate wrists up to 20cm; hence, this watch is suitable for men and the modern women.
The original strap is in bad condition after almost 3 decades of storage. A brand new hi-quality Aviation Bund NATO strap with leather padding is thus provided.
The watch is 100% original Seiko components from this particular watch. No parts were replaced with aftermarket parts.
Even though the seals and gaskets are present / replaced, this timepiece has not been water-resistant tested due to its age.
The pictures provided show the watch’s case in mint condition because of its NOS condition. 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 is 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 February 1996!
This is a highly sort-after NOS Collectible Seiko 5Y89-0A50 SUS SCFM007 Military timepiece in stunning condition; so, be unique and wear something that is almost impossible to source.
This is a must-have for the Seiko die-hard fan, and in fact, any serious watch collector!
