Hi, I need advice on the dial of UFO model. Is the minute register suppose to have orange blocks around the minute track? While every piece has 3 orange blocks on 10, 20 and 30 numerals, a few has orange blocks on the minute track inself, I counted six blocks in addition to the 3 on the numerals. Is that original or modified? Must admit that it looks much more attractive though. Appreciate your comments, please. Thanks.

Any idea what movement is in that $75.00 SEIKO Diver??

It depends on the model. IIRC one of the variants of this watch comes with yellow markers in the subregisters, but the majority come in orange. There is also one variant in whichthe subregister background color is gold.

BTW this model line is called the Yachtman (that is seiko's official nickname), not the UFO - see the original add below:

Amazing! Now compare that to the price of Bell-matics at the time... $30-65 more! What most amazes me is that the caramel-color dialed Belle is the top price and, today, it can hardly find a home. :eek:

6105. BTW, assuming that watch dates to 1970, that $75 would be roughly around $425-$450 today. Catalog entries from that same year showing the MSRP at $125 would put the watch at around $700 today.
