This is a fairly recent vintage watch made in March 2001. I bought it shortly after it came out. It has the “old” watch back design of the Seiko Superior’s and I haven’t seen many of them since. It’s a good looking watch. It has the Seiko 5 screen printed on the dial that obscures “water5BARresist, Automatic, 23 Jewels.” The dial itself has wave texture that is swirled in to the hands post like a vortex. Around the dial you will find 2/10th per second markings and second markings with every 5 seconds being numbered. Pics are attached.
