Serica 4512 California - Should I buy it?

Update - He is asking for $700-$750CAD. Should I still proceed?

Does anyone know much about this watch? I have a co-worker who is looking to sell. He hasn’t listed a price yet but I’m interested as I think the watch looks great. It’s in great condition.

I don’t know much about the brand or the movement though. Is it good? Anything to be weary of?

Any insight would be much appreciated.

Thanks! Good to know.

Really good watches.

That's actually a 4512 I believe - the older model. Like mine. ☻

Serica are the real deal.

Great watches with a distinct design language. This could easily be your only watch. It’s COSC certified ans as versatile as they come.

I wouldn’t think twice, especially if you get a decent price :)

The 4512 is hand wound and not COSC. The new version 6190 is automatic and will be COSC.

I can verify the 4512 is a great watch and easy to wear. The Cali dial is awesome as well.

Buy it and love it!

Go for it if your like the dial. Personally I prefer the Commando dial.
