Default One of the rarest Seikos I have ever owned

This 6218-8950 is from 1965 and has a 35 jewel movement. The case is very thick and very unique. This watch keeps excellent time at -3 secs. per day. It was just sent to Randall for a new crystal. I love the simple, clean dial. Anyone have any interesting info. on it??

Gorgeous and stunning and fabulous! Everything about it is class.

Seiko could learn a thing or two from this when it comes to the design of some of their more outlandish modern ranges. Save the crazy quirky artistic flourishes for the casebacks, where they belong. Not mentioning any names!

That is a very elegant dial and case! A "pre-Ananta"?

It looks better than many of the spirits.
However, there is nothing guarding the crystal?

I love its simplicity and clean lines. That one would look great under a dress shirt or something more casual. Thanks for sharing!

That's a beauty!
My Weekdater also keeps within a few seconds a day- they are the 'telecaster' of the watch world!
