Default [Identify]Please help me identify this small Seiko DX ladies watch

Bought this watch on Ebay, but havent been able to find any other Seiko DX watches like this one. Does anyone recognize it, and could maybe tell me more about it? According to the back of the case, it has the 3Y02 movement, and the serial number is 077396.

I have used jgauch's Seiko Watch Production Date Calculator, but it didn't return anything on this watch.

Couldn't find it in the first link, and don't think it was there in the other link either.

From this link (http://quartzimodo.com/how-to-tell-w...s-made-part-2/), I think I can deduce it is from the 70's or 80's.
It has the Seiko SQ marking on the back of the strap clasp (will take a picture of that as well and post it here) Combining this with 077396 s/n, I am assuming this watch is produced in July 1970, 1980, or possibly 1990.

But other than that, I am still clueless. So further help in identifying this watch is greatly appreciated.

Edit: But just to be sure, could you guys check in the 2nd link, I found it a bit disorientating and I might have overlooked it there.

Found a Seiko with the same case, but completely different movement and dial: http://www.saintstevensthingery.com/...ess-steel-band

I am running into a wall with this one, image searching/google searching/forum crawling has not turned up anything for me thus far. I refuse to believe that there is nothing known about this curious piece. It is intended as a gift, and I would really like to know what I am giving this very special person.

That's not the same case. That one is more rounded ("C-Shaped"), yours got rather straight horns.

I don't know what you want to know about your watch.
It was most likely made in July 1990. Although the design would indicate 1980, I don't think they made "Y" movements that early. Could be the case, though - I didn't find any evidence on when 3Y02 movements were produced. Only this Boley page: http://boley.de/en/case-parts/seiko/4028

As the crystal interchanges with 4206 as well as 7N83 calibers, I think 90 rather than 80.


The DX line was produced between the late 60s and early 80s and contained only mechanical watches. So my guess would be that Seiko tried to re-establish the DX line with a quartz equivalent. Googling for "Seiko DX quartz" returns exactly ONE similar model (although a gent's watch).

I say if she likes it - what do you want more?

Ah, I went by the 0211 part, which I assumed to be the case number.
Thank you very much for this piece of information

And let's hope she likes it hehe
