Seiko Baby Panda Chronograph
Here is a fabulous, all original Seiko Baby Panda from 1971. The silver sunburst dial is in very fine condition, with a steel Seiko logo and steel bar hour markers with lume dots at the outer ends. There are two sunken black subdials for the chronograph hour and minute counters at 12 and 6 o’clock respectively. The rehaut has a black tachymeter ring and also a silver seconds marking ring, showing some overall wear. The baton hands have the original lume and are in very fine condition, the center chronograph seconds hand with an orange tip. The steel framed windows at 3 o’clock displays the weekday and date, both of which can be quick-set. This function should only be used with the hands at the bottom of the dial.
The stainless steel bezel is in fine condition with light overall wear. The large and chunky stainless steel case with the original crown and pushers and integrated lugs is in fine condition. It has a subtle sunburst pattern and shows some overall wear, most notable at the lugs and in particular towards the upper left lug. The stainless steel case back is in fine condition, with the Seiko and Suwa logos and some wear.
The watch comes on an after market leather strap of good quality.
Inside the watch, Seiko’s high grade caliber 6138B beats strongly and accurately to within about +-12 seconds per day. The watch was fully serviced in February 2022 and comes with a 12 month warranty on its proper mechanical functioning.
The Baby Panda is not only a fun watch to wear, it is also a very collectible watch that was made only for a couple of years in the early 1970’s. This specimen looks great on the wrist with its chunky case and great overall condition.
Our watches are delivered in a luxury wooden watch box, fully serviced with a 12 month warranty that covers the mechanical functioning of the watch under normal use. We offer 14 days full return rights and are very proud of our reputation for outstanding customer satisfaction.
