Hello
I've just discovered this forum dedicated to Bell Matic.
Fascinated by watches, I falled in love with the Bell Matic 6002 UFO.
I'found an UFO on ebay with a blue dial and a blue wheel ring bezel
You may find it with this keywords on ebay : SEIKO Bellmatic Automatic Day Quick Set Date Steel Watch with Turning Inner Bezel sold at 199,00 GBP (not able to post links or images because not enough post :()

I was wondering if this one was an original one or a re factoring with other bell matic spare parts
I've never seen such a blue dial with a blue wheel ring bezel :confused:
My reference is the one with dazzling blue dial and golden wheel ring bezel.

If someone could help me
King regards from Paris (FR)
sorry for my so poor mastering english

Do you mean the one in the first screenshot? That one is for sale now at a buy it now of ukp199.

I think the dial is off a 6089 model, shown in the second picture. Also, the case has been refinished in a way that is non original which I don't like.

I'm pretty sure its a franken. I don't mind frankens, some look very nice, but that one is a poor quality dial, refinished case and very very expensive for what it is.

There is no gasket for the case back so it will steam up and corrode, and there is no case spring so it will rattle. I can't see anyone who would carefully service the watch, leaving those parts out altogether.
