Released in 1965 the “62MAS” (auto[MA]tic elfdater) is the first professional Seiko diver's watch. Originally released with a smaller crown (ref. 6217-8000) this was discontinued after two months and replaced with (ref. 6217-8001) which has a larger crown.
Model: 6217-8001 "Big...

Custom Seiko SPB149 62 MAS reissue MOD.
Well made mod with stainless case, domed sapphire crystal, hacking and hand winding NH35 movement.
Runs quite well. Alignment good. Some marks on the case, see the photos for details please.
I can't get the bezel spring to keep...
I've had one of these on my radar for a while and thought I'd post a WTB for fun in case anyone might be persuaded into selling a 62mas with Daini Lume!
I'm not super active here (mostly lurking) but you can find me on OF & MWR under this username; happy to provide tons of references...
Another beautiful blue dial from Seiko. I paired it with a stingray strap and it looks fantastic. I'm not a huge fan of the stock "Z" straps that come with the watches. The case finish is beautiful and again, a lot of watch for the money.
EDIT: SOLD! Thanks SCWF!

Hi my name is Reinold and I want to share a short story with you today.
After one week of scrutinising a vague photo on a website of an auction and many hours of comparing the out of poor quality photo with the photos of the poor man's divers on the web, I took the gamble and started bidding on...
I have the possibility to buy a 62MAS (small crown). It is supposedly all original, but I don't have enough knowledge to verify this myself. So would be very thankful for all the feedback I can get from you guys. Pictures are not to that good and no picture of the movment. Watch is running...

I bought this from the Philippines...
Off the back of the concern/delight at the astronomical rise of 6105 prices of late, I was shocked and delighted in equal measure when I stumbled across this:
I can't honestly see this selling...
...and a happy holiday to everyone!
Santa was very busy this year, and he visited just in time to bring my 62MAS from Japan. Very close call, I just got it from customs.
It's really kind of a gift, as I paid a lot less than the going rate. Don't know why no one bid but me...
There's one thing...
Most of the 62MAS I have seen usually have bezel inserts with faded paint at the edges.
Is it possible to have it repainted or repaired? Has anyone done this before?
Is there anyone here who knows anybody who can repaint bezel inserts?
Any feedback will be appreciated. :c017:
Bought a cheap bag of watches which looked like this
Because I had seen something I liked
Just need a crown, stem and stem spring, but mechanically very good, looks good on timer and buttons work well. Has even got the bezel gear.
Imagine my surprise and joy on finding this in the bag...
