I know that there are a lot of us here who would like to ask the same question.

Where can I get a Seiko 62Mas or 6217-8001 bezel ring? Or are there any substitute coming from another Seiko watch model? :confused:

To all Seiko experts and collectors, please provide us with any information so that we can save more 6217-8001 (62Mas) watches that have complete parts but have missing bezel rings.

At least there are aftermarket bezel inserts (not that good but available). But for the bezel rings...it is so hard to find one :mad:

One of the old Russian Vostok divers has a bezel that will fit the 6217, I think I have one in my stash somewhere but the inserts are a different size.

yes, I am referring to the whole bezel. It is impossible to find one :mad:

Can the bezel of the 6106 or other sport divers be used as substitute?

I hope there is another seiko diver watch model that can be used as a donor :(

Here is a picture of a shanghai military watch and a 6217 with swapped bezels. I know that some of the bezels from the Vostok Amphibia or Komanderskie models will also fit the Shanghai.



There is a company called Murphy manufacturing that make replacement bezels for the Vostok's. I was in touch with him once about modifying the bezel he makes to fit the 6217 insert but I lost interest in the project when I stopped actively collecting a couple of years ago (started motor racing). The Murphy link is here: Murphy Vostok Bezels

He may remember our conversations, I even gave him drawings and the exact sizings required to make this for a 6217. In reality though, what he needed was a 6217 bezel to be sent to him so he could make them.

Someone with a bezel should get in touch with him....

Technoman, thank you for the pics and recommendation. I hope this Vostok substitute will fit. I saw some at eBay with Seiko inserts.

If it fits, then my next problem is where to find good aftermarket inserts for the 62MAS :confused:

Any suggestions? This forum has been very helpful to a lot of us :)
