The Original Seiko 62MAS (6217-8001) Side-By-Side While using New Seiko SLA017 (or SBDX019)Earlier this year, so we reported a couple of times over it, Seiko introduced the brand new SLA017 (SBDX019 for a lot of markets). As i was a student in Japan with regards to a month ago, conducting a week long Grand Seiko manufactory tour with a few of the readers, I needed the ability to handle both new Seiko SLA017 and also the vintage Seiko 62MAS reference 6217-8001. Both replica watches belong to the same person, who is a keen reader of Fratello plus a fan of (Grand) Seiko replica watches.Seiko 62MAS and SLA017We did an in-depth coverage for the Seiko 62MAS in 2015 already (click here), so I won't repeat a lot of what's been written there. In a nutshell, the 62MAS has been available since 1965 by Seiko and MAS means 'autoMAtic Selfdater'. This watch carries a water proofing of 150 meters, the very first Seiko that may handle 50 meters / 5ATM of pressure (by specifications). This 37mm stainless-steel was had the Seiko caliber 6217 movement (the initial digits from the Seiko reference also indicate the movement caliber), the one that was missing a hack-feature but did come with the date function. An attractive neat watch, to the task (diving bezel) and until recently, you could learn and get your own easily. Cost is everywhere though, ranging from a great 2000 Euro till almost 4000 Euro first in top shape. The issue is finding one, whatever present in versions.6217-8000 and 6217-8001You possess the early 6217-8000 plus the 6217-8001, made between 1965 and 1968. The difference between your 6217-8000 and later 6217-8001 is usually inside engraving involved back and also the crown size. The 6217-8001 received an increased crown and (therefore?) stood a slightly longer tube and also a small recess in the event. Therefore, the Seiko 62MAS I have on this page would be the later 6217-8001 reference.The 6217-8000 had an image of a dolphin engraved involved back, as you move the later 6217-8001 simply states 'SEIKO'. In such cases in addition, later means roughly 8 weeks. Therefore, the first run of 62MAS watch was simply a short one.Seiko SLA017 - SBDX019Then, earlier in 2017, good news 'leaked' some months before BaselWorld started that there is a re-edition on the Seiko 62MAS. We called it the SBDX019 just for our local Seiko distributor to allow us realize that this wasn't the best reference number. Later, it seemed that SBDX019 was correct, but is merely used for the Japan Domestic Model (JDM). Far away, the re-edition from the Seiko 62MAS is referred to as the reference SLA017.When i watched it in Basel, I became quite keen about it. The looks were nearly the same as the initial Seiko 62MAS, and it also used up-to-date technology (Seiko Caliber 8L35B movement as an example) together with an elevated size of 39.9mm as opposed to original 37mm. The location where the original Seiko caliber 6217 is often a simple specifically 'unfinished' looking movement, the brand new 8L35B can be a variation within the Grand Seiko 9S55. Perhaps you recall my report on the Marinemaster 300 (SBDX001, now succeeded from the SBDX017), which had 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. tag heuer watches price Stripes which might be just like the Ctes de Geneve (but referred to as 'Tokyo stripes'), but is not admired anyway from the absence of a transparent case back cheap replica watches . Somehow, Seiko doesn't mention the 8L35B into their specifications, just 8L35.Anyway, the Seiko 62MAS re-edition, the SLA017 / SBDX019 had two minor issues in my opinion. There were only 2000 pieces available all over the world, and also as effortlessly limited Seiko replica watches, very difficult to get and yes it a hefty price of 3800 Euro. In the course of introduction, 3800 Euro would basically mean you can buy gadget original Seiko 62MAS models. Any longer though, unless you're lucky. But back then, just a couple months ago, this became still possible. The 3800 Euro became a bit of a blocker for me personally, as being the spec-wise similar (or maybe technically much more enhanced) Marinemaster 300 SBDX017 a retail price of approximately 2300 Euro. Looking back, I will have purchased a Seiko 62MAS at that time (or before) or ordered the brand new SLA017. The first is becoming more pricey as well as the latter has grown to be unavailable. Think for days on end and you are obviously out, You need to have known better after passing up on the 2014 limited edition Speedmaster Apollo XI in titanium and Sedna gold.Not IdenticalAs you can observe in the pictures in this post and examining the writing, these replica watches show quite some differences. The diameter from the Seiko SLA017 is different from the Seiko 62MAS already, therefore it does appear and feel such as a modern (and so different) watch in the first place. For a re-edition, I would not care much concerning the fact they used a modern movement, some other crown mechanism, as well as not even much about the crystal (sapphire versus acrylic). Seiko also got large of the SLA017 dial directly in my personal replica bell ross sale watches , it features a similar nice tone as being the 62MAS. Information within the dial are also corresponding, however the depth rate is different of the models. How big the watch clearly signifies that we're also coping with modern watch here.As we discussed on the picture above, the design of the case is respected. The SLA1017 is a little thicker as opposed to Seiko 62MAS, which probably involves the movement as well as its water proofing. But the lines from the case and lugs are respected, so are the bezel and crown as an example.Seiko 62MAS vs SLA017 - Which One?If you can find any one of these two, and you will probably should you be paying premium with the SLA017 (there is a couple on eBay for $5,000USD and more) or have enough patience to hang about until you locate a great Seiko 62MAS, the actual someone to have? This can be needless to say very personal and depends mainly on the kind of guy (or girl) you might be. I would usually opt for the vintage model, as I did using the Seiko (Grandfather) Tuna 6159-7010. I had been on the lookout to get a nice modern Tuna SBDX011 back then, on the other hand went vintage instead rather than looked back. One of the reasons was that I knew it wasn't going to be an everyday watch, or possibly a watch I would wear often, anyway. So no fear for damage or real deterioration. Regarding the Seiko 62MAS or SLA017, the size can also play a role where-as this is not for the Tuna (similarly over-sized).Obtaining a nice and great condition Seiko 62MAS is going to be tough, but can be also portion of the fun. Be sure you that in case you found one, many experts have serviced or that you've a watchmaker that may be capable of service these replica watches. It can't be the first-time the own watchmaker Paul opens a Seiko which includes not been serviced for many years, showing lots of broken down parts (as well as which spare parts are very difficult to source). That's something that certainly won't happen to you with a fresh and well-over-retail-paid-for Seiko SLA017.More about the Seiko SLA017 via Seiko on-line.*The Seiko SLA017 / SBDX019 belongs to the Prospex ('Professional Specification') collection, suited to professional use (diving).Thank you very much to Patrick to lend me these two replica watches.
