Default Side-by-side comparison of the 6159-700x & 8L35-0010?

I'm curious if anyone has the ability to do a true side-by-side photographic comparison of these two watches? I'm sure it's been done - anyone have a link?

I'd like to see that, too. Someone please send me your 6159-7000 so I can photograph it along side my 8L35-0010 (joking).

)

If I'm remembering correctly, Randall Benson has owned both, but I don't know if he had them both at the same time. I'll search his forum later and see what I can find.

I wonder why Seiko didn't reuse the 6159-7000 case for the 8L35-0010.

ha!

Found one, but it took some searching - and naturally it was on the old site (see link below - all pictures from that link). I have to say that side-by-side the 6159 wins. The simpler case design, the smaller and more classic bezel, the less busy dial text, the applied Seiko logo..

Ok, what then about a side-by-side comparison of the two movements in terms of quality, build, longevity?

It appears as though the cases are roughly the same size. The 8L35-0010's beefier rotating ring and 20 mm lug spacing make it appear larger. It's a shame Seiko didn't reuse the case. If they did, my reproduction waffle strap would fit perfectly.
