1972 Seiko Speedtimer 'Tokei Zara' ref. 6138-0020 (NOS)
What We Fancy
The Tokei Zara was destined for the domestic (Japanese) market only and exists in two colors. The blue and grey minute subdials. Housed in a very unique “helmet” case with an amazing brushed and polished finish. Finding a Tokei Zara in the Western market is not common, you are likely to never be in the same room with one of these on someone else’s wrist. This example dates to January of 1972 and is in truly new old stock (NOS) condition with the original bracelet and perfect case.
