Never seen THIS before...

Back on the bench after an absence. "Real life" can be a true pain in the butt.

While getting into some estimates for a customer I found this very odd rotating ring anomaly on an otherwise very nice-looking and seemingly all-original 6105-8110 from November 1976:

The rotating ring is missing four grooves. As you can see, the blank spot does not line-up with any other particular feature.

Could this be an instance of Seiko using up the last few parts despite the obvious imperfection as they wound-down production?

LOL...I wonder if this was purchased new today how many people would send it back to Higuchi?

first they would talk about it online, and complain about higuchi first.

actually I have seen some other goofs- that where minor-

Anjoy a PMWF type brought a 6309- diver to a local watch meet in NYC and said he needed to buy 'another click ball' for his 6309 it had two holes drilled for the spring and click ball.
