Seiko would release 10 different incarnations housing the revolutionary 6138 movement, with a total of 18 variants, from 1971 until the end of production in 1979.Famed for its reliability and requiring hardly any servicing at all, these timepieces are some of the most desirable Seiko watches among vintage watch collectors. It is widely accepted that the most sought after member of the 6138 family is the Seiko 6138-8020. Also known to collectors as the “Seiko Panda”, it was called as such due to the distinctive white dial and black subdial as a reference to the face of a Panda.
This Panda is produced in gold-plated, a rare find and pure eye candy! The gold, white and black tones in the hands and dial make a great contrast and also a real popper on its (super rare) original and matching gold plated bracelet or a sporty leather strap as seen in the pictures.
Something special to mention separately: the watch is delivered with its original Z027 bracelet. These straps are only produced in very small numbers and because of their finely crafted quality, these straps alone are very exclusive.
