Response to Vintage

... oh well, I was hoping you did have some rather rare/obscure variety there happy.gif

Indeed the Seikomatic 6218's are a treasure ... really a high grade movement inside a "package" that people tend to undervalue. I look at it like this: a 6218 gives you 90% (?? more??) of the quality of a GS at 20% (or less!) the price in the used/vintage market.

On the Bells: yes indeed the hardest movement varieties to find are the 21j 4006 and the 4005 [Date only & 27j only]. I've only seen a couple of the 4005's around here [Philippines] and IIRC have never seen a 21j in the sales offerings. Data I've seen on the net say that the 21j Bells make up only about 5% of total production of 4006's and that the 4005 is about the same rarity level as the 21j 4006. So... happy hunting!!

And yes, I have indeed looked in on you periodically to see what's up. Just that this was the 1st time I'd felt "moved" to write happy.gif Maybe I'll do more writing if you guys want to talk more vintage stuff!! happy.gif
