1970 Seiko 4006-7028 "Bell-Matic" 17j

1970 Seiko 4006-7028 "Bell-Matic" 17j


The first Bell-Matic was released to the public in 1966, and was at that time the very first automatic wrist alarm with a central rotor. Seiko continued production of the line for another 12 years with a wide array of styles ranging from colorful casuals, to refined classics. This variant from June of 1970 is a blend of both that offers great versatility and comfort on the wrist. The case has traditional lines, lengthy tapered lugs, and a low profile bezel. The dial is a rich silver linen with a north to south grain and lacquered finish that's contrasted by highly polished baton style hands and detailed bi-color markers. It's framed by a raised minute chapter and a polished and fluted alarm bezel. A touch of color is provided by the cursor which consists of a white triangle over a block of bright red. Unpolished and completely original aside from a replacement crystal, this watch is in incredible condition and gives little indication of its nearly 50 years of age. The bell has a bright, crisp ring and the dark brown distressed leather strap provides smooth finish.
