The main Seiko 62MAS (6217-8001) Side-By-Side While using New Seiko SLA017 (or SBDX019)Recording, therefore we reported a few times over it, Seiko introduced the new SLA017 (SBDX019 for some markets). Once i was a student in Japan about a month ago, performing a week long Grand Seiko manufactory tour with a few in our readers, I needed the chance handle the two new Seiko SLA017 plus the vintage Seiko 62MAS reference 6217-8001. Both replica watches participate in the same person, that is a passionate reader of Fratello and a fan of (Grand) Seiko replica watches.Seiko 62MAS and SLA017We did an in-depth coverage about the Seiko 62MAS in 2015 already (visit), rolex watch dealers and so i won't repeat much of what has been written there. To put it briefly, the 62MAS has been around since 1965 by Seiko and MAS stands for 'autoMAtic Selfdater'. This watch incorporates a water resistance of 150 meters, the 1st Seiko that might handle more than 50 meters / 5ATM of pressure (by specifications). This 37mm metal was had the Seiko caliber 6217 movement (the very first digits within the Seiko reference also indicate the movement caliber), one which was lacking a hack-feature but did come with the date function. An attractive neat watch, up to the task (diving bezel) and as yet, you can get and get your own quite easily. Cost is in all places though, including an excellent 2000 Euro till almost 4000 Euro for starters in sound condition. Sixty finding one, whatever present in versions.6217-8000 and 6217-8001You hold the early 6217-8000 as well as the 6217-8001, made between 1965 and 1968. The gap between 6217-8000 and then 6217-8001 is principally from the engraving on the case back and the crown size. The 6217-8001 received a larger crown and (therefore?) experienced a slightly longer tube plus a small recess in the event. Therefore, the Seiko 62MAS We've in the following paragraphs could be the later 6217-8001 reference.The 6217-8000 had a picture of the dolphin engraved involved back, whilst the later 6217-8001 simply states 'SEIKO'. In such cases by the way, later means roughly Two months. And so the first run of 62MAS watch only agreed to be a brief one. watches Seiko SLA017 - SBDX019Then, earlier in 2017, what is this great 'leaked' some months before BaselWorld started there will be a re-edition with the Seiko 62MAS. We referred to it as the SBDX019 exclusively for our local Seiko distributor to allow us know that this wasn't the best reference number. Later, it seemed that SBDX019 was correct, but is merely useful for the Japan Domestic Model (JDM). In other countries, the re-edition on the Seiko 62MAS is called the reference SLA017.When i watched it in Basel, I became quite passionate about it. The looks were much like the first Seiko 62MAS, and it also used up-to-date technology (Seiko Caliber 8L35B movement for example) together with a heightened height and width of 39.9mm as opposed to the original 37mm. Where the original Seiko caliber 6217 is usually a simple and particularly 'unfinished' looking movement, the newest 8L35B is usually a variation on the Grand Seiko 9S55. You could possibly recall my article on the Marinemaster 300 (SBDX001, now succeeded because of the SBDX017), which have the Seiko caliber 8L35 movement. The 8L35B has some innovations, like MEMS technology that has about the escapement and it has a nicer aesthetic finish. Stripes that happen to be the same as the Côtes de Geneve (but termed as 'Tokyo stripes'), but can not be admired anyway by the not enough a transparent case back. Somehow, Seiko doesn't mention the 8L35B within their specifications, just 8L35.Anyway, the Seiko 62MAS re-edition, the SLA017 / SBDX019 had two minor issues in my view. There were just 2000 pieces available worldwide, so when with all limited Seiko replica watches, very difficult to get and yes it experienced a hefty price of 3800 Euro. During introduction, 3800 Euro would basically mean you can buy two of the original Seiko 62MAS models. first copy watches Any longer though, unless you're really lucky. But at that time, just a couple months ago, it was still possible. The 3800 Euro became a bit of a blocker to me, since the spec-wise similar (or perhaps technically more enhanced) Marinemaster 300 SBDX017 had a shop price of approximately 2300 Euro. In retrospect, I would have obtained a Seiko 62MAS at that time (or before) or ordered the modern SLA017. The first has become more expensive as well as the latter happens to be unavailable. Think for too long and you are clearly out, I ought to have known better after losing out on the 2014 special edition Speedmaster Apollo XI in titanium and Sedna gold.Not IdenticalAs you can view within the pictures in this post and studying the text, these replica watches show quite some differences. The diameter on the Seiko SLA017 differs from the Seiko 62MAS already, in order that it does appear and feel just like a modern (therefore different) watch first of all. For the re-edition, I can't care much about the fact they used a sophisticated movement, an alternative crown mechanism, or perhaps not even that much concerning the crystal (sapphire versus acrylic). Seiko also got large from the SLA017 dial right in my estimation, it possesses a similar nice tone because the 62MAS. The details about the dial can also be corresponding, even though depth rates are different present in models. The length of the watch clearly suggests that were coping with modern watch here.As you have seen around the picture above, the shape from the case has become respected. The SLA1017 is a little thicker than the Seiko 62MAS, which probably is due to the movement and it is water proof. Though the lines on the case and lugs are extremely respected, so may be the bezel and crown by way of example.Seiko 62MAS vs SLA017 - Which?If you possibly could find any of these two, and you will probably if you are paying premium for the SLA017 (a few couple on eBay for $5,000USD and more) or have enough patience to hang about until you come across a good Seiko 62MAS, which is someone to have? This is needless to say very personal and depends mainly on the sort of guy (or girl) you're. I would usually go with the vintage model, because i did with all the Seiko (Grandfather) Tuna 6159-7010 . I had been on the hunt for the nice modern Tuna SBDX011 right at that moment, having said that i went vintage instead rather than looked back. One reason was i always knew it had not been likely to be an every day watch, or simply a watch I'd personally wear often, anyway. So no fear for damage or real wear. When it comes to the Seiko 62MAS or SLA017, the scale may also be involved where-as this became not to the Tuna (similarly over-sized).Choosing a very good condition Seiko 62MAS is going to be tough, but could be section of the fun. Be sure to if you found one, it is serviced or that you've a watchmaker that may be capable to service these replica watches. It can't be the very first time that our own watchmaker Paul opens a Seiko which has not been serviced for many years, showing a lot of exhausted parts (and then for which spares are quite difficult to source). That's something won't occur that has a fresh and well-over-retail-paid-for Seiko SLA017.A little more about the Seiko SLA017 via Seiko on-line.*The Seiko SLA017 / SBDX019 belongs to the Prospex ('Professional Specification') collection, appropriate for professional use (diving).A big thank you to Patrick to lend me these replica watches.
