NOS Seikomatic Dials
Jim I came across this Box of Dials a while back I did not need any but felt the day would come that One of the Guys that Collected these may need one.? Your two are stunning examples of Vintage Gems.

|Vette Enthusiast||Beautiful watches. What size is the case on these watches?|
|08-18-2019 07:34 AM|
resurrect this 2017 thread,
was wondering what is the difference for the 50m print in blue vs black?

|JohnLecarre||Those are REALLY nice, and the gold dress watches are my fave, so great post!|

Interesting but useless fact:
260 microns is equal to one-fourth of a millimeter.
the width of a typical human hair is 75 microns. So 260 microns would be about 4 hairs wide. Nothing to scoff at, and would certainly survive a lifetime of wear.

The thickness of gold is quite impressing too, 260 micron!!!
I have one with an dial that have turned grey, looks real good actually.

|Jim W||The 70m version certainly is a rare bird. This is a special watch. It would have been top of the range in its day, and maybe all 70m were gold cap? The 70m depth rating was not bettered until the 62mas was introduced in 1965.|

hi jim . my stainless 50m says hi!
its got the etched, not engraved, back, and after 54 years the whale, "39", and the crown are near-imperceptible , though still visible at kissing distance to the naked eye

|uncleluck||Case back's are epic! Love the silver sunburst dials, they look great in the flesh. They don't photograph well, I've got an old mint 66- with silver dial and it's a thing of beauty.|

|TheTigerUK||Another great case back|

|GuyJ||Like them both Jim although agree with Jonas on the gold, but that 50m version is particularly fetching I must say. Condition of them is damn nice.|

Seikomatic Selfdater 70m J13.083
Here's a couple of Seikomatic Selfdaters. These featured the 39 jewels cal. 395 movement which was the top of the range in the early 60's. the 395 was the first low-beat chronometer. It evolved into the 6216 and the 6246 Grand Seiko. Seikomatic Selfdaters appeared in 30m, 50m, and the much harder to find 70m versions. They don't get GS or diver money as yet, which suits me.
Here's a 50m from my collection:
And my 70m version recently returned from Duncan for a full movement service. I found this gold cap example on the YJ auction a few months ago:
A nice case back on these!
