Seiko Advan vintage (70's).

Hi crunchers.

I don't hear much (not at all) about this line of Seiko watches from the 70s here. Do any of you like them as much as I do? I don't glean a lot of information on the net, apart from a few sales here and there, and a few snippets of info on the calibers used and the why and how. Any additional information would be welcome.

Thank you for your interest and Norman friendships.馃槈馃榿

Love the squared faceted glass of that era. What did the Advan* stands for?

There is the question. 馃槄https://www.thewatchsite.com/threads/advan-anyone.40430/

What a cool piece.

I love advans and vanacs but sadly don't own one. I do have a lovely citizen however which gives the same vibe at a lower price point

Yes, these Citizen from the same period are also very very beautiful. 馃憦

Seiko decided to go a bit wild in the 70s with these (citizen as well) think it was to get in on the space craze. And they are a bit crazy, but lovely all the same. Mine here is from 73, and it's got the usual problem,scratched glass which is a problem most suffer from. And getting a discount on a rolex sub is easier than finding a new glass for one of these (if anybody has any info). If you get one with perfect crystal you've got a rarity. Love mine,but will love it more with a new crystal.
