Sekio watches and my Bell-matics

My collection of Seiko watches that i collect or have collected and the ones i still desire !!

My main area of interest is the Seiko Bell matic, this blog shows the ones that i have collected, or "restored" for myself and others and watches i have for sale or trade.

I am always on the look out for Bell-matic parts/spares every thing from bracelet parts to complete watches to complete restorations now and in the future, if you have any thing for sale or trade please contact me.

For a great collection of photographs and information on the Seiko Bell-matic visit a great resource.

6 digit and 7 digit serial numbers.

The early Bell-matic's 1966, 1967 and some examples at the beginning of 1968 have 7 digit serial numbers. The first two digits being Year and Month.

From late 1967 (early 1968) to the end of Bell-matic production Seiko only ever stamped a 6 digit serial number.

Due to the relatively short period between late 1966 and early 1968 this makes the 7 digit serial number rarer to find.
4006-7000 produced May 1967
