    Can you identify my late father's watch?

    Hi guys, does anybody have any idea what model this is? It's one of a handful I have inherited from my awesome watch-loving father, who died recently,and I'm struggling to identify the model number :(

    I can't help with your problem of ID'ing the watch. But I offer my deepest condolences. Take care of yourself and your loved one's. I hope your Father did not suffer much and left behind many great, happy, and beautiful memories for all he touched.

    Turn the watch over and there will be a serial number and a model number. Model is normally four numbers, a dash, then another four, e.g. 6139-6002. Look up the model number and google it and you'll get a whole world of info. It's part of Seiko World Timer or something like that series. Oh btw, the serial number is cool - the first number is the year (e.g. If 7 could be 1987) and second number is month (e.g. If 5 = May). Depending on model you can work out the decade so you can date most Seiko's accurately to the month.

    And condolences for your loss.

    Thanks Pippy, he was one of the good guys.

    Thanks too for the info about the serial number. I've come across that before about the numbering structure Seiko use; it's a good idea. The other number I think might be a movement reference? It's 5T52-7A20, which when I Google it I get lots of world timer watches but 97% don't look like mine :-/
