1981 Seiko Silverwave JDM Quartz Day-Date (8229-7030)

$170.00 AUD

Seiko's Silverwave models from the early 80s incorporate the case features of Seiko divers (screwback case with double wave insignia, 4 o'clock screwdown crown) in a more sleek and sporty look, and this 8229 variant is no exception. The dial is finished in a lovely, slightly reflective white/silver and features a bilingual kanji/english calendar, applied baton indices and applied Seiko/Quartz insignia.

8229 quartz movement is keeping good time and working as expected. In good condition with light markings and standard wear and tear to the case - these were usually worn as work watches, so it's nice to get an example that isn't super beaten up! Some light marks to the original crystal. Fitted to a deadstock black leather Seiko strap.

Dimensions:
36mm diameter (including crown)
41mm lug to lug
10mm thick
