Hi Everyone:sign0144:.

First Bell (4006-6070/661490), wish I could say it was my first vintage Seiko.

Happy to find this forum to learn from you guys.

Shes in pretty good shape but needs a crystal, new band and a good service.

Very nice!

That is one extremely (imho) handsome "Franken-Belle." One of the nicest examples I have seen and one I wouldn't mind wearing. Congratulations! and :welcome:

Thanks, I think it was worth the short money that I paid for it...

On a side note, do you call it a franken due to the band? I was under the impression that it was original other than that.

The 4006-6070 looked like this:


The hands look okay, but I'd need the 4006-xxxx number at the bottom of the dial to identify that. Nonetheless, a handsome watch! :great:

It says 4006-6090T (Im pretty sure).
It "looks" just like the blue 6070 in the gallery (minus the band of course).
So either a replacement dial or replacement caseback then since they dont match?

Thanks for the info! Learning more every day!
