Hi everybody,

I am new around here, this is my first post. I am a 28 yo guy from Belgium and I just came by, sort of randomly, this Seiko watch I immediately fell for because of this salmon dial :). I am finalizing the purchase with a collector based in Indonesia. The price of the watch itself seems decent to me, 180$, it is just going to be expensive to get it to Europe.

Anyway, I understand this is a 17 Jewels reference 6309 7080 and should be from the 70s. I could not find any similar model with this dial online and wondering if anyone here could tell me more about this watch. And of course, I am curious to hear some general opinions about it.

Thank you in advance!

I don't know anything about this specific reference, but it isn't a particularly desirable model. The dial color is ok, but there's water damage, and most of the lume plots are in bad condition. For $180, there are plenty of other vintage pieces to consider. I would pay $25 for this watch. I would pass at $180.

Thanks for your answer @SeikoForum . That is quite a consequent price difference, can these actually be found for this price? I find that very low for an automatic watch, but again, I am new around…
Also, based on what are you able to say there is water damage? Thanks again

Do your research. Look around the forum. WatchRecon, eBay, etc. This watch is not worth $180.
