NOS Barn Find Seiko 6105-8110 - ebay auction

Post by mellonb1 » Mon Nov 23, 2020 10:41 am

Anyone else see this listing or watching? Nicest 6105-8110 I've ever seen come up for auction. Full kit with box, manuals, stickers, tags, and oem rubber strap. Pretty cool to see what they looked like when first released.

"Recently was purchased from the original owners family, they said their grandfather got this as a gift in the 70's along with a Rolex Datejust and he thought they were too nice to wear so he stuck them in the safe where the watches sat for almost 50 years".

i am pretty positive that is a aftermarket bezel insert. yobokies makes one even nicer than that. it also looks like the hands had some mold on them due the blackish tint that they might have been bleached or lightened. i have been wrong before but it doesn't look og to me

Crystal has some oxidation on the underside of crystal but nothing really worth noting
I don't know what this means. I don't think glass oxidizes. :shrug:

As much as I love the old 6105 i could never justify one at that price- no matter what condition.

Lol I don’t even know what that means. What a load of crap.

If he had said hazy crystal... okay, that makes more sense.
