Reasonably priced Classic: Seiko 6105 - Worn WoundThese days, we are excited to deliver you the first of with any luck , a protracted sequence on appealing and mostly cost-effective classic dive replica watches by w w good friend, @vintagediver (head about to IG and give him a comply with for nice pics each day). Appreciate!Seiko features a rich record from the planet of dive replica watches, and it is secure to say that none is as legendary because the venerable Seiko 6105-8110/9 (aka 6105-811X). It's the definitive Seiko diver, and it retains it really is have towards one other iconic divers in the 1970′s. This is known as Seiko's 3rd generation diver, following the 6217 (aka 62mas) and the slimmer 6105-8000/9. The 6105-8110 and 6105-8119 are exactly the same, but the last digit within the reference number indicates in which market the replica watch was originally sold.The 6105-811X was made from 1970-1977, and came in two slight variations. The early models from 1970 were labeled water 150m proof around the dial, and waterproof about the case back. At some point later that year, they changed the text to water 150m resist with water resistant within the back. This was inline with a change in nomenclature throughout the Seiko offerings. The proof/proof models are fairly rare, and command a definite premium about the resist/resist models.This replica watch is one that I think has to be felt within the metal to be fully appreciated. replica watches paypal
Several years ago, before I had any Seiko divers, I saw the photographs and posts of devoted 6105 owners, and was actually quite unimpressed. Around the years, the design started to grow on me, and I decided I had to have a single, and see what all the fuss was about.
Once I had just one, it was adore at to start with sight. The 6105 simply contains a wrist presence that doesn't translate into images.The build quality and finishing is exceptional, and definitely on par with other hi-end divers on the same period, like the Omega Seamaster 300 and the Rolex Submariner. Seiko was, and still is, a true manufacture replica preowned omega seamaster watches
, making everything in-house. Not only was the movement in-house, but Seiko even made their own oils, cases, crystals and such. The 6105 was a very popular choice with US military servicemen within the Vietnam war era, and was available with the PX stores (retail stores found on United States military installations) for soldiers. It was also famously worn by Martin Sheen's character
, Captain Willard, during the Vietnam war movie Apocalypse Now.The case is a wonderful chunk of solid stainless steel, with a distinctive asymmetrical cushion shape. The crown is at 4 o'clock and is safeguarded by the bulging crown guard, giving it a pretty unique and instantly recognizable geometry. The original factory finish is circular brushing about the top and polishing over the sides, with a pleasant sharp line delineating the two. The oversized crown is about 6.3mm wide, with shallow grooves covering the whole thing and six deep grooves for excellent grip. It contains a turn and lock system that is unique to this model. After setting the watch, you push the crown in and turn it although still gently pushing and a single from the big grooves will lock onto a pin that keeps the crown from turning. To be honest, I can't actually figure out the benefit of this, but it looks cool!The crown is signed "->Lock , which is pretty cool in itself. The case measures about 44mm wide by 47mm very long with 19mm lugs. It really is an great size for most wrists, not too big and not too small. The shape of your case and case back sit really comfortably to the wrist, making it a quite easy replica watch to wear despite it is really big size and smallish lug spacing.
The coin edge bezel with aluminum insert rotates bi-directionally, and provides a click ball mounted within the case that gives it 60-clicks in a full rotation. A rubber O-ring gasket gives it just the suitable amount of tension for nice bezel action. The crystal is a proprietary Seiko hardened mineral glass called Hardlex. It is actually a double domed type, with a quite shallow dome about the outside (almost flat), and a more pronounced inner dome. These were (and are) prone to scratches, and cannot easily be polished. However, NOS crystals may be found, and there are aftermarket repros that can be had as well. Nothing makes a 6105 sparkle like a brand new crystal!Under that cool Hardlex crystal is a dial that is certainly a work of art. It's a beautiful matte black, with raised applied chrome markers that are filled together with the proprietary Seiko lume material. There is a date window at 3 o'clock with a great chrome frame. Under the 12 is an applied chrome Seiko logo with Automatic printed in silver just below. Earlier mentioned the 6 it is signed water 150m proof or water 150m resist depending within the model.The fine print below the 6 should read Japan 6105-8009T. There are many horrible fake dials out there, and lately there have been some extremely great fake dials showing up. The hour and minute hands are lume filled faceted steel baton style, although the second hand is a unique stop light style with two lume filled holes at the tip. The distal one is white lume like the hour and minute hands, and the proximal hole provides a pale red color.The 6105 is powered by the robust Seiko caliber 6105B, a 17 jewel full rotor automatic that runs at 21,600 bph. It really is not hand windable, but the automatic winding mechanism is so efficient that a person flick in the wrist will start it running from a dead stop. A person good touch that is not often found in Seiko divers (vintage or modern) is that this movement hacks, meaning the second hand stops when the crown is pulled out.This model originally only came with a rubber strap.
There has been some discussion about bracelets staying available as OEM from PX stores , but as far as I know this hasn't ever been proven. The original rubber straps available were the XGL731, the ZLM01, and a third unmarked model. These original straps are quite rare nowadays, and command huge prices when found. The strap to the 6105 within the photographs shown here is an XGL731 that I was lucky enough to acquire. It is actually incredibly soft and supple, much more comfortable than most modern rubber straps. The ZLM01 strap, otherwise known as a "waffle" strap due to its distinctive pattern, has been reproduced, and is available for those that want the OEM vintage look with a modern material strap.The 6105 has become probably the most recognizable and legendary of all the Seiko divers, which is saying something coming from a manufacture that is loaded in dive replica watch heritage. Whilst it's by no means scarce, it really is indeed difficult to find in excellent, original condition. This was intended as a tool watch, and was generally worn as such by the folks lucky enough to have bought them new. They were rode hard and put up wet, so to speak, a lot more often than not.Most original examples that are found on eBay have moderate to significant wear.
The lume material is prone to getting what is commonly referred to as "black funk" on it. For some reason, the Seiko lume used tends to get this black growth on it when exposed to moisture intrusion, which is a bummer as it can't actually be removed (I've tried!). An additional pitfall in collecting the 6105 is that they are often found with any number of aftermarket parts installed, most often fake dials/hands and replacement bezel inserts.When these aftermarket parts have their place in restoring what many would consider unwearable condition replica watches, it may be problematic for those that don't know the telltale signs and are looking for an all-original example. That said, original, unmolested examples of this fine diver is often found with some patience and perseverance. Trust me, it truly is worth the effort to acquire a single! replica panerai pam 321 price watches
