    Vintage 4205 for ladies (33mm)

    Hello,

    Just wanna know your opinion about the 4205 line especially the one for women (33mm)
    Planning to buy one that I intend to use for surfing and diving but I'm not sure whether it's reliable or not.

    The little 4205's are great little watches. They are shrunken versions of Seiko's full size divers and are just as tough. Just check the seals before use in water.
    Here is my 4205-0143 and a comparison shot.

    Agree - as Bombora says they are miniature versions of Seiko full size divers.
    I bought one for my wife a few years back it’s from 1979, hi-beat movement etc....many of the details on the dial make it reminiscent of the 6159-7001 (the original MM300).
    I had her's serviced with new seals etc...runs like a champ.

    That’s a 2205, not 4205.

    Just a better comparison shot for the "shrunken" bit.

    Well, like @bombora wrote, it does demonstrate the size difference. So here are a few more examples

    A 7005 ‘poor mans 62mas’ and a 2517



    A 7548 and a 2625



    And another 6105 and 2205



    And I guess while we’re at it, a 6117 and a different 2517
