Just barely 1970's but technically still counts. Its a Japenese domestic market Seiko model 7017-6020. I brought it back to life a number of years ago and fell in love with it. Movement overhaul, new crystal, new pushers, gaskets. I left the case untouched but I brushed the bracelet. For some reason I am always reaching for this watch. Glad the forum is back running again.

1972 Hamilton A-659 with original bracelet. Bracelet needs polishing. Just one of the never ending tasks needing to be done.
