Hi all,

I recently had good old fleabay purchase of mixed bracelets, as one of them caught my eye. I’m hoping that I scored a 19mm vintage seiko bracelet that will fit my 6217 world time. I’m not sure if the 6217 came with the bracelet as standard, but if it fits I’ll be happy enough.

The one I’m referring to is on the far left. I’ve definitely seen a bracelet like it on other vintage seikos but I don’t know for sure. Fingers crossed I got something I can use. I’ll be interested to hear what the experts think I’ve trawled up here. Perhaps it’s just junk that needs throwing back ;).

I called that brick bullet style bracelet and it was quite popular in the 60s, some are made by JB Champion.

I have one on my silverwave and I think they might fit the world time as well. 60s Seiko tend to have more inter changeable bracelet compared to the 70s with unique bracelet for each watch.
60s Seiko also tend to have similar lug design.

Nice! It has the end links which is a bonus.

Looks like I got lucky on this one. I think the bracelet I was eyeing up was indeed seiko, but I’m not 100% sure. I’m sure I recognise the logo stamped on the inner of the clasp but if someone could confirm it that would be great.

And then the stamping on the clasp: note I will need a friction pin to get the clasp reunited.

The other scrap that came with it: (some half decent SQ bracelets though)

The other straps that came with the lot were pure junk, so they went straight to the bin.

I think watch looks so much better on steel, I don’t get on very well with leather straps so it’s going to make it a whole new watch in my eyes. A service might be in order now to make it wearable. Overall I’m quite pleased with this fleabay haul, proof that you can still trawl up some diamonds in the rough.

Sorry if it was unclear, but the ones I took pictures of were not thrown away. The stuff that got thrown in the bin was all broken. I shall check the left one and get back to you.
