Watch is a Nov 1973, 3883-7000

I think a distressed brown leather strap might work better with the tones of the dial.
Reminds me of a freshly caught mahi-mahi (dolphin fish).
What's the production date and reference?

What is this beauty reference?

Not too bad on a black leather (18mm) strap with deployant clasp I had laying around:

Seiko Morpho 'Peacock' dial (cal 3883)
A few months back Gerald.D, posted a couple pics of his beautifully dialed watch: https://www.thewatchsite.com/21-japa...ever-made.html
I'd peripherally heard of these, and seen a pic here and there, but after that thread went into full search mode. It seemed like maybe there were two variants, because some seemed to be green-dominant, while others were blue/purple-dominant. What I now know, having found and purchased one, is I think there's only one variant, and it is just that variable regarding what the color looks like.
It seems the angle you view the dial at, and the type of light that's reflecting really change this thing around. I took a variety of pics, all at the same time, to show how much of a chameleon this dial has:
