    Found my uncle's wath and don't know the model number - rotor missing

    Hi,

    I found my uncle's watch - an old Seiko 5 - and I want to know the model, but the rotor is missing(I think). This is the watch: Name:  IMG_20150403_224619.jpg

    Maybe someone can help me with the exact model number.

    Thank you!

    Holy Cow! It looks like your Uncle stored his watch in the bottom of the ocean!

    Sorry … I'm not a Seiko guy, but I'm sure someone will identify it shortly.

    The movement and case number should be stamped on the caseback, in this format: xxxx-xxxx, for example 7006-7080. I'm not sure this is a real Seiko though. The applied logo on the dial looks suspect, and I think nearly all "5" models have day and date, not date only. There are way more fake Seiko 5's out there than you might imagine. I'm no expert so I may be totally wrong about this part. A decent photo of the back will help identify your uncle's watch.

    I looked up the Seiko 5 story on the Seiko website.

    All Seiko 5 have 5 requirements

    1. Automatic winding
    2. Day/date displayed in a single window
    3. Water resistance
    4. Recessed crown at the 4 o’clock position
    5. Durable case and bracelet
