Water resistance - I cannot guarantee any level of water resistance whatsoever.Testing for this can be done cheaply at most watchmakers/jewellers , but vintage watches should always be considered not waterproof and it is good practice to not get them wet. I do basic accuracy tests, to check whether a watch works or not. These provide a guide, but do not predict exactly how a watch will perform once worn on the wrist. Mechanical watches will often slow down or speed up depending on orientation. So a watch left face down overnight may keep different time than if left face up etc, or worn continuously.
Lease also remember that mechanical watches are not designed to keep time as accurately as a modern quartz - even a brand new Seiko 7S26 from the factory is only specified for ±20-30 seconds per day. Vintage watches require servicing from time to time.I don't know when this watch was last serviced and while vintage watches often happily run for decades, it may also require attention well before then.
