Hey!

I’m a collector of 70s Seiko Quartz and just snagged this one. I noticed that it has 3 different day options kanji, eng, then and all blue English with different font.
Anyone know the significance of this?

Wow. Three languages. I have no clue what it's for, but I've never seen that. Very interesting.

I am not sure why Seiko would use 2 different English date colors. Normally they use black for M-Fri, blue for Sat and red for Sun. Unless somebody in Japan thought that English days were different in the Commonwealth and the USA?

The triple date wheel is not really rare, I have a couple. Here is my 1977 Seiko 4004 for the Singapore market. It has Chinese, Eng and Roman Numerals

Seiko quartz watches from the 1970's were the best they made.
