Vintage Seiko "Monaco"Flyback Chronograph Cal;7016-5020



This is the last of my incoming non-Russian watches.Comes all the way from Brazil,it is very welcome indeed.
This is the much rarer gold plated 7016-5020 "Monaco" Flyback Chronograph,made for the Japan market.
I have always wanted one,it screams Retro 1970`s to me,with its perfect original brown dial,and hands,[the hands often get replaced when they are "restored".As i say thankfully this still has its original lumed stick,faceted hands].When this watch was made it had the worlds thin est Automatic Movement.
Although the dial and hands have lost there luminosity,which i always find reassuring,[normally means the original lume is still present],If you buy a vintage watch,40/50 years old,would you not find it suspicious if the lume was still shining bright.
The watch keeps great time,chronograph operates pin perfect,its a lovely understated size,looks great on the wrist..

    1. Hello John,
      Thank you for your interest. I am sorry, i only have these pictures,i have got some movement pictures somewhere,but i can`t seem to place them.As you know,it is not easy dismounting the movement on these watches.
      Best Regards,
      Russ.
