That is a very wide open question. What are you into?

Divers, chronos, quartz, mechanical, etc, etc.

Definately a 6105-8000, 6139-6002 Yellow dial and blue dial and maybe a blue dial 6138-0040.:yahoo:

Yep your question is far too wide. What do YOU like?

An automatic movement like the 4006 bell matic.
That's a fine place to start a search.

One of the best things about Seiko is the massive amount of varying designs that have come out over the years. The quality of those designs is, on the most part, exceptional. There really is something for everyone, have fun discovering what works for you! And welcome :)

Nearly all the best ones are expensive (Grand Seiko, late 60s divers & chronos etc)

So for accessibility, I think you won't go far wrong with:

Either/or/both 6105 & 6309 divers
Bullhead
Monaco
King Seiko
LM
Choice of digitals
Any 6138/6139

and I really like some of the late 70s King Quartz, really high quality of their era, but available for small money now.

the watches previously mentioned are cool and I own some of them, but if I could only own ONE Seiko watch, it would definitely be a 6306/6309 diver. they are still fairly cheap, relatively speaking, and you could get a great example for $200 (6309 variant, on the 'bay). you're probably going to pay 50% more if you try to get one on the sales corner here...lol.

good luck!

For me, it's the 6139-6002 chronograph. It's arguably the first automatic chronograph made, it's definitely the first automatic chronograph in space (by over ten years) and they can be had for $300 or less. Just an outstanding watch for an incredibly low price.

1969 21J 6139 Speedtimer (Seiko equivalent of a 1969 Zenith El Primero or Heuer 1163MH) The first automatic chronograph sold to the public.



Pogue - not just a yellow faced 6139-6000, but one with the correct resist dial. This one is within 700 watches or so of the one that was in space.



6159-7000. 6159-7010, Lord Marvel, King Seiko, Grand Seiko High frequency watches



6159-7000 is the forefather to the Marine Master, 6159-7010 is the forefather to the pucks

Gotta have a Credor
