1967 Seiko 6217-7010 Automatic World Time

1967 Seiko 6217-7010 Automatic World Time


After its introduction in 1964, Seiko’s World Time needed little in the way of improvement, but the engineers at Seiko wasted little time in addressing needs and set to work making refinements for what would become the 6217-7000’s direct successor... the 6217-7010. It was released in 1967, and this new variant had been fitted with a screw down case back rather than a “snap on” style. As well as luminous in the hands, the dial was given luminous plots just inside the markers for each hour. The crown had also been replaced with a slightly recessed style that was less prone to mishaps. This example from December of 1967 is phenomenal. The silver linen dial is perfect, and free of any blemishes. The 24 hour track in black and blue is crisp and without fading, and the “cities of the world” bezel is flawless and can be rotated smoothly in either direction via the crown. Aside from a replacement crystal and balance cock, it’s completely original and a collector’s dream. Post service, the 6217 is keeping near perfect time, and we’ve paired it with a distressed black leather for a classic finish.
