1967 Seiko 8306-8100 Sealion M-110 “Weekdater”


Seiko's "Weekdater" line up from the 1960's offer some of the cleanest layouts and appealing designs to come out of era. Mid-century modernity and minimalism that's just as relevant today as it was when they were introduced more than 50 years ago. This Sealion M-110 from June of ‘67 is a scarcely seen variant that offers a few benefits not found in its cal. 62 brethren. For starters, the movement is a true gem that showcases the innovation to Seiko’s approach at the time. Rather than the “magic lever,” the winding mechanism incorporates a complicated, yet very efficient integrated “inversion roller” system that is silky smooth and can be manually wound via the crown. The case styling is unique as well. Beautiful detailing and finishes make it a standout design with protruding lugs onto which five separate surfaces converge. The flat polished bezel frames a charcoal gray sunburst dial with a lacquered finish. The applied markers are perfectly beveled and finished in black along the top. The tapered baton hands are brightly polished, and finished with black inlay along the tips. The day/date window large and legible and finished in a textured frame. Overall, it is in fantastic condition considering it has just reached the half century mark in age. We’ve paired it with a distressed light brown leather with reverse stitching to work in contrast to the rich dark dial. A rare treat, this ones sure to be a head turner on any wrist.
