1968 Seiko 4006-7010 Bell-Matic 27j

1968 Seiko 4006-7010 Bell-Matic 27j


The first Bell-Matics were released in November of 1966, and over the next 12 years a wide variety of styles and color combinations would guarantee that those looking for a robust wrist alarm with undeniable presence could find exactly that. Seiko’s 4005 and 4006 calibre movements were available in 17j export and 27j domestic market versions (there’s even short lived 21j variant), both of which offer incredible reliability decades from when they were first produced. From classic dress styles to colorful casuals, there’s a “Bell” to suit any collection. This 7010 from November of ‘68 is a sleek and angular stunner with sharply tapered lugs and and crisp lines. The dial is a charcoal gray sunburst with a lacquered finish framed by a thin, matte black alarm cursor ring. The applied markers and sword hands are a perfect contrast of mirror polish and khaki luminous patina. It’s completely original aside from a replacement crystal, and the bell has a crisp and bright tone. We’ve paired it with a light brown distressed leather with reverse stitching for a classic and versatile finish.
