The Seiko Lady 4045H is a vintage mechanical watch specifically designed with elegance in mind without obvious bragging. Big watches during the 50s to 60s were considered boorish behaviour.
It has a beautiful preserved silvery-white and gold filled dial, engraved gold-filled Indices, 14K solid gold stick hands and gold-filled case that are well preserved.
Its rectangular gold-filled case was buffed as best as possible without compromising its shape, lines and gold-fillings albeit a few minor scratches that are barely noticeable to the naked eye. The crystal is original and is constructed from mineral glass.
The crown is located at the traditional 3H position and is easily accessible.
This beautifully designed watch was carefully stripped and given a good servicing and general calibration on 28 August 2023. Its timekeeping is excellent i.e. ± 1 minute every 24 hours, and should be able to operate unhindered for the next 5 to 10 years thereby providing the owner peace of mind.
The case width and height are approximately 13.5mm (without crown) and 32mm respectively. The lug width is 10mm and the expendable gold-plated bracelet can accommodate wrists up to 16.0cm.
Due to its age, this timepiece has not been water-resistant tested.
The pictures provided show the watch is in very good condition. 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. An aftermarket box or purposeful carrying case 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 preserved for the next generation to savour such engineering beauty.
Yes, there are many other same / similar models in the market, BUT none as beautifully aged and as well maintained as what you see here. Another no-brainer is the fact that the value of this watch will appreciate over time.
This watch would most certainly make a beautiful present for that special someone born in May 1963.
This particular Seiko Lady 4045H gold-filled timepiece is being sold here for S$ 88.00 which is extremely reasonable. So, NO LOW-BALLERS, please! Take note that low-ballers, trolls and wannabe advisors (whose "advise" is completely unwelcomed) will not be entertained, and should they persist, they will be reported and blocked!
Do also bear in mind that it will cost between S$ 120.00 to S$ 150.00 for a proper servicing, an estimated S$ 40.00 for basic calibration; and S$ 40.00 to buff the watch case and bracelet - 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 beautiful timepiece that would make a beautiful present for that someone special.
This is a must-have for the Seiko die-hard fan, and in fact, any serious watch collector for that matter!
