Icon2 FS: Freshly Serviced Vintage SEIKO Seikomatic 6218-8971 (1965)

This unusually clean example of the Seikomatic 6218-8971 Weekdater has just returned from a service at Michael Young’s Classic Watch Repair, complete with correct new caseback and crown seals.

Condition
The case condition is very good, still with sharp lug chamfers. The crown & dolphin caseback is well defined, while the uncommon silver vertical-brushed dial is particularly outstanding, with sharp text and bright Seiko logo and day/date frames. Hands are also clean and sharp.

I carefully timed the movement over several days after its return from service, and it gained +2 seconds over 24 hours when worn during the day and left crown up overnight.

More info on this movement type: www.watch-wiki.net/doku.php?id=seiko_6200

Fitted with a new quick-release black leather strap from Geckota. Can switch to brown if preferred.

Service paper PDF will also be supplied.
