Ignore Naysayers, Koi is Great Seller

JK, been grabbing reasonable old King Seikos and have always loved the STOWA brand, they do things right, no gimmicks, and let quality be their prime marketing tool. So when our fearless leader put this one up for sale I grabbed it. It's a 1969 Stowa Seatime, 39x12mm, Durowe 7525/2 movement, non-rotating bezel, mineral glass. The watch is in well cared for but used condition, the parts are either original or replaced OEM.
The dial is the grand focus of the watch with a gray center expanding into a blue/purple haze. Came in mint original box with the warranty. The bracelet is very funky and common from the era with the cutout where the lugs meet bracelet, unsigned. Knowing me this will be on new strap asap. Here's some pics of this beauty:
