    Information on vintage watch

    Hello, everyone!
    Can anyone tell me anything about this Seiko watch? Is it a Hi-beat movement? Date of manufacture? Value?
    Thanks in advance!

    Value, IMO, 10% OF original MSRP.

    I don't think there were Daini HiBeats in the smaller calibres.
    Not a bad looking watch IMO.

    Sounds about right. It's a hand winder. Can't believe one can get a mechanical watch for that. Found them on Ebay, etc for $7-25. Might need a service of some sort.

    It looks to be 40+ years old. If it runs, is reasonably accurate and your girlfriend likes vintage mechanical watches then it's a decent deal.

    Does it run?

    edit: This is probably the movement.

    It still has not shipped yet, so I'm not sure. But I will update this thread as soon as I get it!
