    Seiko 5 23 jewels - cal ?

    Hi folks, I am planning to hit an estate sale tomorrow where this watch will be offered. The lighting is poor so you can't see many markings, but you can read Seiko, 23 Jewels on the left side opposite the date window. I can't make out the model/cal, but let me know if you are familiar with this model and help me ID it.

    Thanks

    @yankeexpress : it is too old design for 7s36.


    it is old 6349. It is higher jeweled version of 17 jewels 6309. It was offered for eastern markets as last revolution of 6309 before 700x family.

    It is a 1969-1975 Seiko 6119

    The movement is a good one but the watch is gold plated base metal and seems to be worn at the lugs due to an expansion band

    If you can get it for no more then $20 then get it but anything more pass

    Thanks for the quick and useful impressions/feedback. I decided late Friday not to wake up early and drive many miles for a Seiko! Nothing against Seikos (I own one, a 1969 Navigator Timer), but it was too far for a plated, base metal Seiko as journeyforce points out.
