Default My 4006-6071 Bellmatic...I'm Hooked!

Hello Everyone,

I have just recently gotten into watches but I have immediately gravitated to vintage Seiko. After lurking on the forum I discovered Bellmatics and fell in love.

After some looking around I found this specimen on eBay. I have swapped the original bracelet for this silicone Barton strap.

I really liked the Arabic numbers as opposed to the hash marks seen on most other Bellmatics. Also thought the French day wheel was neat. Is this dial rare?

I hope to expand my Bellmatic collection but am ecstatic with my first one. What do you all think?

It’s a good one! And the Silicone Elite Bands are a fantastic choice. I have several in the grey. Very comfortable.

Here’s mine:

You don't see a lot of Bellmatics with Arabic numerals. That's pretty cool. Gives off a field watch kind of vibe.

It is a pretty rare dial, I picked one up with a big old scratch from the hour hand around it. Been looking for a clean one for awhile now.

Good find
