Default A trio of oldies

I saw a FS ad on another forum that piqued my interest - I've been on the lookout for an original 6217 World Time bracelet for a few years and never found one for sale on its own.

So I thought I might buy the watch and then decide if I'll switch the bracelet onto my silver faced WT, then sell the donor watch, or what...



My silver WT is on a new B1375E bracelet which I think suits it rather well. The watch itself if an anomalous June '67. The dark one is from 64 and is a bit more faded.

The thing is, the seller had a couple of others and they were on the other side of the world, and well, you know how it goes.

1961 "Blue Yacht" J13034 -



I really love the brushed swirl on the dial. It's a cute little watch.



And the final one of the bunch is probably the most sought-after, though I may need to do something about the lume.



It's a Jan 63 J12082, and since it was Seiko's first dive watch, I figured I'd see how it compares to the 62MAS



and the final trio shot might be titled "Right Hand Down" if James May were describing it:

For me I'd leave watches as they are, the bracelet itself is very infrequently seen just like the brown dialed world time.
It would be a shame to split then up.

A very nice group of watches Ewan! I really like the Silverwave... one of my favourite Seiko’s. The 62mas looks lovely

I don't know much about authenticity on these, but aesthetically I really like the bracelets as they are. And, may I add, Holy Cow! What a lovely collection.

That Blue Yacht is one of my "grail" watches (with the Silverwave not far behind) - I love those early Seikomatics. Congratulations on the haul!!
