    6105-8000 Waterproof/Water Resistant

    I've come across a 6105-8000 that reads water 150m proof on the dial & waterproof on the case back. Per an article on Worn & Wound "the early models from 1970 were labeled “water 150m proof” on the dial, and “waterproof” on the case back. At some point later that year, they changed the text to “water 150m resist” with “water resistant” on the back".
    So my question is does having one that reads "waterproof" more rare (thus more valuable) than one that reads "water resistant? If so by how much in today's market ?

    Thanks in advance for any feeback...

    They are rarer....value is market driven, better condition = higher value. Rule of thumb an 8000 is worth 30% less than a 8110/8119.
