Default 6306-7000/01 Case versus 6309-7040/49 Case

Hope this finds all of you well! I was looking through the Seiko Reference Guilde (Great Resource) killing some time and happened upon a comparsion pic of the two (2) mentioned above. Though it did not go into any description, just pic, it looks like the two cases are slightly different? Looks like the 6306 has slightly longer lugs, perhaps a little more pointed @ then end versus the more rounded lugs on a 6309? Is it my eyes are is there a slight difference..just never noticed before.


Thanks!

There is a very slight difference between some, but definitely not all 6306 diver cases and the 6309/7040/9 cases. There are some posts in our mirror from the old forum which detail differences in pics. IIRC, some of the earlier 6306 divers had cases with bigger bevel cut outs at the crown and had a somewhat flatter profile overall. IIRC this is not true of all 6306 cases (please correct me if I'm wrong), and more of them are virtually indistinguishable from 6309 cases. Their parts are definitely completely swappable between both models, and IIRC they were designed at the same time.

More telling is that construction techniques where not quite as exact in those days as they are today, and there is a fair bit of minimal variance in non essential areas of the case, which can be found from one to another. This is part of the reason why some after market part suppliers will not make solid endlinks for it (a perfect fit cannot be guaranteed across the board), and those that do make them either have to live with the variance or be prepared to file the endlinks.

BTW, this article from our archive, written by Harry, should be of some help to you:

The wonders of what is in the archive never cease to amaze me. ;D
