One of my Favorited case backs, the month of the Olympics.
Thanks! Another 1967!
On your 7010 - can you tell me exactly what it says at the bottom edge of the dial - I have not documented a dial with that wording before - it looks like JAPAN and then perhaps some model info on the right hand side of the 6-o'clock marker?Just checked, here we go:
6217-7010 (with a 7000 dial)
lug width: 19mm
London separate and correct on the city ring

Lug width: 20mm
London together with Paris and Rome on the city ring.

Both together to see them in one glance.

Regarding the „London thing“ with correct vs. non correct position; I once read that for a short time, London, Paris and Rome did actually share the same time zone. So the city ring looks wrong today but was correct back than. I suppose this is well known but I wanted to mention it just to make sure.
BTW I am still looking for the correct bracelet for my 6217, if anyone reading this has one for spare….
You could start with this,Very true. These are really great watches and fun to collect. They are also quite a challenge to document.
Very nice. I am considering adding (or doing another document) on the GMT's that look to share the same case, movement and basic concept - perhaps when feel I have turned over every stone with the World Time versions.

Hi all -
That is a great photo and awesome watch. My next step is to find and acquire a 6217-7010 and a 6117-6010/9. I am still not 100% sure they share the same case. Good, original examples of those generations are harder to come by.Wow! This is the most detailed and complete overview of a Seiko series I've ever seen. Outstanding documentation, thank you for sharing!
I wished commercial publications like the SpeedTimer book or the recent diver book would be accurate like this....
Dapellegrini, you are my day hero!
A 6217 7000 was my entering watch to collect Seiko vintage time pieces. Here it is:
