VIETNAM ERA~1969 SEIKO 6106-8219 DX “MAC V-SOG”

Regular price $769.69 Sale

FOR SALE IS A SUPER CLEAN JULY 1969 SEIKO 6106-8219 DX VIETNAM ERA AUTOMATIC ON ORIGINAL BRACELET.

 

  • CASE: VERY WELL PRESERVED C-SHAPED CASE IN EXCELLENT ORIGINAL AND UNPOLISHED CONDITION. THIS LETHAL BEAUTY MEASURES 36mm ACROSS NOT INCLUDING CROWN BY 41mm LUG TO LUG. THIS ONE IS ALL DIAL, SO IT WEARS NICE AND BIG ON THE WRIST. CHECK OUT THOSE CRISP CHAMFERS THAT RUN THE SHOULDERS OF THE WATCH. REALLY LOVE HOW THIS ONE WEARS WITH THE ORIGINAL BRACELET.

 

  • DIAL: THIS IS SEIKO'S TAKE ON THE MILITARY DIAL. NICE AND LARGE LUMED ARABIC NUMERALS DOMINATE THIS CAFE AU LAIT SUNBURST METALLIC DIAL. THE COLORS ON THIS ONE ARE STUNNING. THE EARTHY DIAL COLOR MATES NICELY WITH THE SUGAR COOKIE PATINA ON THAT LUME. SUCH A NO NONSENSE AND HIGHLY LEGIBLE DIAL. 

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS GENT RUNS ON A CLEAN 17J SEIKO 6106 AUTOMATIC HACKING MOVEMENT.  WATCH IS RUNNING NICELY WITH A GOOD POWER RESERVE AND GOOD TIMEKEEPING.  THIS ONE WAS JUST RECENTLY SERVICED WITH A NOS CRYSTAL INSTALLED. 

 

  • WATCH COMES MOUNTED ON ITS ORIGINAL 5 LINK BRACELET WHICH IS VERY COMFORTABLE AND IN AWESOME CONDITION. IT'S CURRENTLY SIZED FOR MY 6.75" WRIST WITH 4 ADDITIONAL MICRO-ADJUSTS AND 1 SPARE LINK. MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT THIS MIGHT HAVE BEEN ONE OF THE MILITARY ISSUED MACV-SOG MODELS GIVEN TO SECRET RECON UNITS IN THE VIETNAM WAR, BUT THERE IS SOME DEBATE IF THIS WAS AN OFFICIALLY ISSUED REFERENCE OR ONE THAT WAS OFFERED AT THE MILITARY PX AND SIMPLY WORN BY SERVICE MEN. IT DOES HAVE THE IDENTICAL LOOK AS THE SEIKO 5 ISSUED MODEL PLUS THE "DX" MARKINGS AND A BRACELET. SUCH A COOL AND FUN WATCH TO SPORT AROUND WITH JUST THE PERFECT AMOUNT OF PATINA AND CHARM.
