The Seiko 5 DX 6106, the ancestor of modern-day Seiko 5 series.
Many may not know where the 5 comes from, the Seiko 5 is actually Seiko's 5 principal attributes
Seiko 5: 1. Diaflex (unbreakable mainspring), 2. Diashock (Seiko's shock-resistant design, equivalent to the Swiss "Incabloc"), 3. Automatic winding, 4. day/date indication, and 5. Water-resistant.
Seiko is proud of emphasizing its automatic movement used in all Seiko 5 DX, they hide the crown of the vintage Seiko 5 in part of the case as users of these movements will not need to wind the watch up while wearing it.
This particular Seiko 5 DX 6106 manufactured in 1968 was fitted with a case that blends in the crown of the watch into part of the case. Besides, the date changing mechanism of the Seiko 5 DX movement is rather special. By pressing the crown into the watch, the date in the 6106 movement will click and change automatically. Because of its complex mechanical setup and users' misunderstanding, a large number of the vintage Seiko 5 movement's date-changing functions are broken in years of operating.
"DX" means Deluxe in Seiko's line up, the watch was marked as an upper line of the mid range Seiko 5 watches. We are proud to offer this Seiko 6106 7040T with a sunburst silver dial. The dial was fitted with Seiko and DX applied logo and with wide lume hour markers. The clean and minimal dial design with the wide hour markers reminds me of the new Rolex Datejust in 2020.
For a watch with almost 50 years of history, this Seiko 5 DX just looks Epic!
