Anyone have a line on a NOS set of hands for a 6217-8001? Or maybe a part number? I've been looking(search has not been my friend) but no luck so far... Thanks!

Well according to the 1970 Seiko case book the hand numbers are........

  • Hour 12B18B
  • Min 12B18B
  • Sec 13SB10B

So that tells you you can't always trust the case books :)

ps: The 1974 Seiko case book also gives those numbers.

pps: Note the H and M are stated as being the same numbers :)

pps: The 6105 H and M hands are what you need and the second hand can be harvested from numerous models.

ppps: I don't think you will find many NOS sets about but please prove me wrong and give me a heads up if you find a hoard :)

Only luck I have had so far is mehima-singh.com. He has the set in stock for 30 euro's. Since I haven't seen another NOS set for sale don't know if that is the going rate or not...unless another set pops up, this may be it.

if I was restoring a watch and I only found the one set of hands like you have, I'd pay just about ANY amount. 30euros is a drop in the bucket. think about it....you spend that much without blinking an eye during any given day and often don't even know where it goes!

You are correct sir. After I posted this and read it I thought the same thing... Then wondered why I had even posted it...:grin: It's monday I guess...
