I have two Seiko 6309-7040's which feel more comfortable on my wrist than my modern Seiko 7S26 divers and a 6309-7290 I used to own. The crown pokes the back of my hand especially on a bracelet.

I don't have the funds to buy a Seiko 6105-8010 without trying it on for size/feel. I like the look, but if it does not feel right, I would hate to flip it for a loss. Unfortunately, I don't know anyone that has one and I can't find a showroom that has them for me to try on.;-(

So I am asking you members that have worn both. Which watch do you think is more comfortable? Seiko 6309-7040/49 or Seiko 6105-8010?

Thanks for the help.

Imo the 6105 wears great or at least it does for me, the 6309 also wears great but if I had to make the choice then the 6105-811X gets my vote.

Ps: I really like the look etc about the 6105-800X but just does not wear well for me.

I know what you mean Bluebellmatic. Bought a 6105 8010, and just couldn't get on with it, wasn't a fan of the crown set up or how it wore, so flipped it for less than I'd paid for it. Though it is a watch that seems to be up there in terms of collectability, I find that the 6309-7040/9 is easier to wear, parts are more readily available, and ever so slightly cheaper to buy. I'd try and wear a 6105 before purchasing one. Saying that, I like how the 6105 looks. Hope that makes sense.
Regards, David

No question the 6105, but it's all down to your Personel choice.

Thanks for the replies. I think I'll stick with my 6309-7040's for now. I guess it is my addiction trying to get me to buy the 6105-801? They do look good. Obviously if I come across a 6105 deal I'll snatch it up!

Hands down 6105, i own both.. Something about the sleek low profile just sits beautiful. The way the crown is tucked in masterful.
