Regular price $475.00 Sale

FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS A SUPER FRESH SEPTEMBER 1971 SEIKO BELLMATIC 4006-7012 ALARM WATCH RUNNING ON THE HIGHER GRADE 27 JEWEL MOVEMENT.

  • CASE: ROBUST ALL STEEL CASE IN NEAR MINT CONDITION.  SHE MEASURES A SOLID 38.5mm NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL CROWN BY 43mm LUG TO LUG. NO DINGS, DEEP SCRATCHES, OR EVIDENCE OF POLISHING ON THIS WELL PRESERVED CASE. CHECK OUT THOSE SHARP LINES ON THOSE MUSCULAR CHAMFERS. THIS CASE HAS A LOT OF THE SAME DESIGN LANGUAGE FOUND ON THE LEGENDARY 300M SEIKO 6159-7000 FROM AROUND THE SAME TIME PERIOD. 
  • DIAL: SIMPLY STUNNING.  CLEAR, CLASSIC, AND NO NONSENSE....THE WAY SEIKO DOES IT THE BEST. CHECK OUT THAT SILVER SUNBURST DIAL WITH THE APPLIED ONYX/STEEL MARKERS WHICH MAKES FOR A LEGIBLE TIME CHECKING EXPERIENCE. SUPER CLEAN BLACK/STEEL DAGGER HANDSET IS HANDSOME. I LIKE THAT SUBTLE MIRRORED REHAUT ON THE MINUTE TRACK THAT ADDS SOME NICE DEPTH TO THE DIAL. THE INTERNAL ROTATING INDICATOR IS SIMPLE WITH JUST THAT SINGULAR TRIANGLE WHICH MAKES FOR A NO-FUSS ALARM SETTING.
  • MOVEMENT: THIS SEIKO IS POWERED BY THE HIGH GRADE CALIBER 4006 27 JEWEL AUTOMATIC ALARM MOVEMENT WHICH IS KEEPING TIME AND ALL FUNCTIONS WORK GREAT INCLUDING THAT LOVELY ALARM MECHANISM. I RECEIVED THIS ONE FROM A FELLOW COLLECTOR WHO HAD THIS WATCH SERVICED IN THE LAST YEAR, AND IT'S A STRONG RUNNER WITH A MELLIFLUOUS BUZZ ON THAT ALARM.

THIS CLASSIC COMES MOUNTED ON A PERIOD APPROPRIATE OYSTER STYLE BRACELET WHICH LOOKS KILLER. IT'S CURRENTLY SIZED FOR A 6.75" WRIST WITH 4 EXTRA MICRO-ADJUSTS. IN MY OPINION, THESE ARE SOME OF THE MOST SOPHISTICATED CALIBERS IN THE WATCH MARKET. THIS REFERENCE IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE BELLMATICS WITH THAT HUNKY CASE AND GORGEOUS SUNBURST DIAL. EVERY GOOD COLLECTION NEEDS AN ALARM WATCH, AND THE BELLMATICS ARE THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS.
