Regular price $2,150.00 Sale

FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS AN ALL ORIGINAL  FEBRUARY 1969 VIETNAM ERA SEIKO 6105-8000. 

  • CASE: ROBUST ALL-STEEL C-SHAPED DIVERS CASE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.  SHE MEASURES A POWERFUL 41mm NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL CROWN BY 48mm LUG TO LUG.  THIS ONE IS IN CLEAN AND UNPOLISHED PRESERVED CONDITION. THE ORIGINAL RADIAL BRUSHED FINISH IS INTACT ON THE CASE TOP AND CHECK OUT THOSE SHARP EDGES. THE ROTATING BLACK BEZEL IS IN CLEAN CONDITION AND ROTATES WITH THE PERFECT AMOUNT OF FRICTION BIDIRECTIONALLY. SOME MILD WABI-SABI ON THE BEZEL THAT LOOKS EXTRA TASTY. YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS ONE IN PERSON TO BELIEVE IT.
  • DIAL: SIMPLY STUNNING.  THIS MATTE BLACK DIAL IS A WORK OF ART. SHARING THE SAME LAYOUT AND DESIGN AS THE 8110, THIS IS THE ULTIMATE VINTAGE DIVER DIAL. THOSE PROMINENT CUSTARDY STEEL FRAMED LUMED MARKERS LOOK FANTASTIC AND MATCH WELL WITH THAT ON THOSE CHAMFERED STICK HANDS. SUCH A NO-NONSENSE AND TOTALLY LEGIBLE DESIGN. THE ORIGINAL HARDLEX CRYSTAL DOES HAVE SOME MILD SHALLOW HAIRLINE SCRATCHES WHICH DO NOT IMPEDE THE GLORY OF THAT FACE. THIS IS VINTAGE DIVE WATCH NIRVANA.
  • MOVEMENT: THIS CLASSIC IS POWERED BY THE SEIKO 6105 AUTOMATIC WHICH IS KEEPING TIME AND ALL FUNCTIONS WORK GREAT. WATCH QUICKSETS WELL. THIS ONE WAS RECENTLY SERVICED AND IS RUNNING STRONG.

THIS BADASS COMES MOUNTED ON 19mm WAFFLE STYLE RUBBER STRAP WHICH IS THE CORRECT LOOK FOR THIS MODEL.  I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE 6105 DIVERS. THESE WERE COMMONLY FOUND AT THE PX EXCHANGES ON MILITARY BASES DURING THE VIETNAM WAR, HENCE THE APPEARANCE OF ITS BROTHER(8110) IN APOCALYPSE NOW. DON'T LET THIS ONE SLIP THROUGH YOUR HANDS.
