1969 Seiko 6117-6400 "World Time" GMT

525.00

Seiko's third iteration of a "world time" design came in the form of the 6400. It was available in a few differing color ways, but for us, the black and orange variant is certainly the list topper. The dial is a rich charcoal black with a linen texture, and a crisp lacquer finish. At its edge is a pumpkin orange 24 hour track that can be used in conjunction with the black and orange "cities of the world" inner bezel to determine the time anywhere in the world at a glance. The hands and applied markers are brightly polished aside from the bold red of the contoured GMT hand serves to assist in two of this watches three main functions: Tracking local time, that of a second time zone, and determining the time throughout the world. The case offers great vintage appeal through its tonneau style architecture and large 41mm diameter. The crown is inset flush against it and in it neutral position can be turned in either direction to rotate the inner bezel. We've paired this early example from December of '69 with a perfectly matched black and orange two-piece NATO for a seamless and comfortable finish.
