Better response on post Seiko King Quartz 0853-8030 Tatami with light brown patinaSeiko quartzes age well with patina, mostly cream or a brown hue. Mine has the latter patina; it is supposed to be silver of course. It also has an extraordinary Tatami dial (you know, the Japanese sleeping mat).

Very nice indeed. A very robust early 70s quartz. That would have cost a fortune in those days.

Spectacular, that Tatami dial. It will only get better - and yes in my experience Seiko dials do age in a nice way.
