Continuing my promise to my wife to clean up some of my collection so here's an amazing and historically significant pair of vintage Seiko automatics:Description: Grand Seiko 6246-9001 and Seikomatic 6216-9000 Day-Date Automatic WatchesPrice: $1600 USD, ConUS shipped.Condition: Pre-owned, both excellent conditionDimensions: approx. 36mm wide excluding crown; 40mm lug-lug; 19mm strap/bracelet sizeNotes: This is a special set of rare high end vintage Seikos that I will be providing to the WUS community first before it appears on eBay.
Those that follow vintage Grand Seikos know that the 39 Jewel high end Seikomatic 6216 automatic movement later achieved chronometer grade status and ultimately became the Grand Seiko 6246.
A historic achievement as the 6245/6 was Grand Seiko's first automatic watch.
You have the opportunity to acquire both of these watches in excellent condition.
If I recall correctly, the Grand Seiko 6246-9001 (dates to July 1967) was recently overhauled/serviced in Japan within the last 2 years and is running in perfect condition and keeping great time.
It was missing the GS medallion so I found and installed a replacement.
It has a slightly raised texture in the middle but fits the watch perfectly.
The Seikomatic 6216-9000 (dates to January 1966) movement is also clean and keeping good time.
Bidirection quickset works in mid crown position and day of week is changed manually.
As with all Seikomatics, there is no manual wind.
There are almost imperceptible light scratches on both watches from use but the crystals, dials, hands are in near perfect shape.
This is the perfect pair of vintage automatics to have in your collection as the parts should be largely interchangable and you have a "baby Grand Seiko" to wear as a day beater if you'd like.
The GS 6246-9001 is paired with a brown 19/16mm brown croc grain strap and a modern signed DEA3AW-BJ00 16mm buckle.
The Seikomatic 6216-9000 is paired with a classic 19/14mm black teju lizard Stylecraft strap.
No box/paper/tags.
