1972 Seiko 4006-6027 Bell-Matic 17j

1972 Seiko 4006-6027 Bell-Matic 17j


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 6027 from June of ‘72 is a bright spot in the line, and incredibly well preserved. The 40mm cushion case has sloping contours that hug the wrist, and a standout bezel with bright blue inlay. The dial is a deep and glossy royal blue with satin finished applied markers, and at its edge, the alarm cursor ring is a mix of turquoise, black, and red. Polished and striped batons track and hours and minutes, and a bright red second hand offers a striking pop of color. Attached is the original double hinged bracelet with large block links and an unmistakably ‘70s vibe.
