HOW TO BUY A SEIKO 6309 DIVER - A Collector's Buying Guide by Isthmus

Post by koimaster » May 8th 2012, 9:42pm

The following is a guide made from my own observations, together with excellent technical feedback provided by Randall Benson; information and images found on Kevin Chan’s Seiko Diver’s Reference; and further feedback [most notably from] from Luka-San, Cobrajet, and too many others to mention. I flagrantly "borrowed" some pictures that were posted to the forum, I hope you don't mind my using them here. Thanks all of you for your inputs.

Please note that the guide focuses solely on 6309 dive watches and does not address the Japan only 6306 variant of the watch.

Please feel free to add any information and images you feel are worth adding.

I currently own six of what is one of the finest diver's ever made. Four of mine came from Philippine ebay dealer's. All have after market face,hand's and buffed crystal's. I've had best luck with "watchi-Pogi" a young lady who is also a tech .She sell's her 6309 for $125-150.
If you try and buy an original ,you'll pay through the ass and your never going to know the history.
Thanks for the article Alain.
