Produced in 1964, Seikos first ever chronograph watch produced for the Tokyo Olmpic games. This is a single pusher column wheel chronograph reference 45899 and features a black bezel indicating seconds of a minute. Unlike other chronographs of this era, it does not feature a Tachymetre so it was for recording time only.
It is powered by the 12-ligne, hand-wound Caliber 5719. The movement is in incredible, untouhced condtion.
The watch itself has a simple and clean silver sunburst dial with tritium luminous applied inside the applied baguette markers.
The caseback is embossed with the 1964 Tokyo Olympics making this watch even more collectable.
The watch is running well and all functions are in excellent working condition, with crisp start, stop an reset mechanism.
The watch comes on its original black leather strap with some wear, and even its Seiko pin buckle.
The watch was sourced in Sweden from a collector and is in collectors condition. A rarity but made even rarer by the condition.
