Not necessarily your favourite or most expensive but the one you consider the rarest (gulp i said it again) ;)

My Business Belle was always a grail to me and thanks to JohnN one came to me, must admit never thought i would own one.

I would guess this one:



5106-8010 Seikomatic-P

I am not sure how rare these are, but this particular one was difficult to find. :)

Cheers,
Andrew

My most rarely seen one is a more modern 6M23 I have only seen one other of these.



Vintage would have to be this one.....



My rarest would be this it's a one of a kind :) :)

Not rare, but seldom bought or seen anymore....this Seiko Alba Hypertech resin bezel model....45mm width, emergency codes on the dial....
found this in my box with broken strap, so I stuck a 18mm leather on it for fun .....and now it joins the Adventure watch group ha

Good question - rare but necessarily the most expensive?

I have a few contenders :
The Mitsuo Ohba Landmaster

Excellent condition 6159-7010

Hmm, what is rare? If based on what I have sen or general availability, the JDM only 7019 sports divers I own are probably closest to fitting the bill.


This one isn't mine, I don't have pictures of it yet (this would be the only other one I have seen..).... this is a 1969 7019-8020. Very unusual case design..





Or possibly my other 7019 , a 7019-6030..


This one is of mine..





Again, not knowing or ever able to know actual production numbers, maybe my rarest is my 6217-8000? (Sorry, no pics of it yet..._)

I only own an SKX007 and a Monster, so I'm certainly not qualified for this thread.

Still though, this makes for an interesting read. It's nice to see what's out there. ;D

It is probably this high-accuracy King Quartz (twinquartz) - my oldest (1978) thermo-compensated watch and also my oldest watch with anti-glare crystal !!!

I guess, I can hardly judge how rare a model is. If I take the bay as an measurement, those ones don't show up too often:

a 8M35-8000...


...and this 8223-7170 with it's special emblem.


But as said, I have no idea of the actual production numbers, so it's just a guess based on looking through the bay quite often.

Cheers,

Axel

Well not exactly rare, but fairly uncommon Seikos. Here is the 6109-8009:




This 6309 dress watch (pic before it was relumed):




and this 6106 which while not exactly rare is virtually impossible to find in this kind of condition:

That would be my Yellow Soxa:

- It's a colour I never thought I'd actually wear (rest is black-dialed)
- It's my first watch I bought on this forum
- It's my first 6309 mod
