Default Band for 7017-6020

Hello, I picked up a 1970 7017-6020 that has been sent for restoration. I would like to get a period Seiko 5 bracelet. Can you point me to the right one and a possible source?

Thanks!

Yes, what do you think of it compared to other vintage Seikos? I like the dimensions and the dial layout is terrific. Since I bought mine non-running I havenít experienced it yet.

this is the current condition of mine - just ready to go out for movement overhaul and reassembly. I'll let you know when I get it back !!!

From what little I've read the 7017 was made as JDM only with no export version. A short run from 1970 to 1972. Similar to the 7016 as being the thinnest fly-back chronograph movement?

Don't see many of them around ... I'm in mine pretty cheap so can afford to invest some money into it. It'll definitely go on the watch shortlist for me.

It's a fairly large watch and similar in size to my 6139 Pogue.

Ha! So we are in the same state. I will let you know when mine comes back too. But you are right on the rarity of these. I bought it from an estate watch seller on our favorite auction site. It supposedly ran ok but when I got it I couldnít get it to run. So I got some money back on it so I think Iím ok. Really good versions are $900 to over $1200 so I think it will be a good investment. But Iím in love with 1970s Speedtimers. Here is my lot of Seikos.

nice looking lot of watches - slowly I'm migrating to more of those and willing to sell off watches to get there. The Speed-Timers and Sports models are amazing. Some of Seiko's best design work IMO. I need a yellow Pogue.

Our 7017s I don't suspect will go down in value, nor will I likely be able to get another one I can afford.

Also ... there have been some great recent discussions on "thinning the herds" and John's "rule of twenty". One reality I factor in more and more is: if I get rid of a watch, how much will it cost me to re-obtain a like example. I always give myself permission to buy back a watch I sell (incentivizes me to keep the numbers reasonable) although I only have on a couple occasions (my 6139-6005 ugh) regretted selling something. If I like the watch and I can't replace it at a reasonable cost, more reason to hold onto it ..... the 7017 will probably fall into that category.

Thank you! And You bring up a very good point. Iím to the point where Iím selling watches to make room for new ones. But at the same time Iím not going to sell anything that I will not be able to obtain again- unless itís something that I just donít care for. When I picked up this 7017 I sold an unrestored 6139-6002 from 1969 to pay for it. Itís tough to draw the line on this infatuation however.

I keep seeing the phrase "our favourite auction site". What does this mean, please?
