A ten year quest for finding a rather cheap but rather rare Seiko 150m dive watch with orange dial came to its end today. I have picked this up today from customs (came from Peru): 1982 Seiko 6309-729B







Average condition and came with an AM bezel insert but I had one of Yobokies excellent repro inserts which looks very nice imho. Yes there are better Seikos out there but sometimes it's all about owning all dial variations so I just had to find the orange dialed 6309-729B one day :rolleyes:

That is a lovely -729B.. A lot of people don’t realise this is a very rare watch. Well done indeed in finding that one!

I've managed to find two of these. Neither of them perfect, and both need original gold lettered bezel inserts.

Maybe not perfect but still very very nice! I still wonder why the dial and hands of a 1978 7548-700x usually are in much better condition compared to a later 6309-729x...:confused:

What year are they from please if you don't mind me asking?

The one with the Hong Kong dial is August 1983, the other is May 1982.
These really are buggers to find in good condition. SKX011 hour and minute hands seem to be the same.

Mine is from August 1982. The day wheel seems to be in spanish only, I mean it's bilingual but both languages seem to be spanish:
