Seiko Alba AKA - Square Dial V733

Back to the Seiko Alba AKA range again today.
This watch is one of the designs brought out in the late 90s to appeal to fashion conscious buyers in the far east.

It has a 3-hand dial V733 movement, which also has a date and day marker at the 6 o'clock position. There are no hour numbers on the dial, but the minutes (every 5) are marked instead. The glass is shaped with the central 2/3 being thicker, and then tapering to the top and bottom. This makes the watch catch the light quite effectively! The watch is also 10bar water resistant.

The full model number is V733-5A4O, and this watch was made in 1996. It has an AKA strap with part number F0N5AZ-E
