I’ve seen some fantastic GS Seiko Dials With One I showed Recently but for me
Working on Dial Legibility alone and it’s simplicity I’m Going for the SPORK😜👍

My Favourite Seiko Dial.The Spork.
But I Must Give The Utmost admirability to my Seiko Save The Ocean Dial👍
Another Stunner from Seiko.

Not counting GS which I don’t own (and make some of the best dials ever anywhere), I pick a couple of my blue dial watches including my new Turtle. Seiko is the master of the blue dial.

In terms of colour, yes the 3883 GFA is very nice. I also like a clean, simple dial. The 31-7000 is right up there as far as my tastes go.

Everything about that 31-7000 is fabulous!

Seiko did blue dials so well in the 1970's.
Here's a couple:

1972 6138-8010:



1973 5256-6010 Vanac:

Dials is a area Seiko have got right so many times over the years imo from the vintage days to the present day, just so many beautiful ones (imo).
Indeed.


They did so many amazing dials in the 60’s & 70’s and to my mind their ‘normal guy’ divers and chronos were far more impressive 40-50 years ago than the reissues with modern tech manage to achieve today.

See a mint 62MAS dial and it blows away a new one, same with the 6105 where a decent original makes the new one look like an ebay fake.

Let’s not forget the RRP on these amazing watches back then was around $100 with discounts available.

If an exact copy of the 6105-8110 was remade today by rights it should have had an inflated rrp of around $1000. Put it next to the reissue and I know which one I’d buy.
