    Re: 1970s Seiko 6138-001X Chronograph Variations Review

    Hello and greetings. I have only recently started warming up to these vintage Seikos. and while they are interesting to look at, I find that prices are sometimes a put-off. I did however come across a really nice example that appears to be all original and unpolished. But upon closer inspection, I noticed it had considerably shorter minute and hour hands. Later I discovered that this is a variant to the ones with longer and slimmer hands.

    Does anybody know if the shorter/fatter hands variant is more sought after? Is it perhaps rarer hence why it commands a high price? For the record, everything else about the watch seems the same as the variant with slimmer and longer hands and the model number is the same 6138 0011.

    Would appreciate very much if someone could comment and shed some light, thanks.

    Thanks for the review. I recently purchased one too. And shortly was told by a watchmaker friend it was a wreck and needed service. $300 and a month later it was running beutifully and still with all original face and hands. I posted for sale on eBay out of guilt (wife) but quickly took it down once I realized I would regret it.
