Seiko 66-8050
Seiko 66-8050
I collect vintage Seikos – or at least, I’m just starting out on this terrible addiction – and found myself drawn to manual (hand-wind) movements. I absolutely love the minimalist clarity of the no-date dials of the cal. 66 watches. This is from November 1973, so by my reckoning, must be one of the last cal. 66 watches produced. I got the because I fell in love with a vintage Rolex 1016 Explorer, but there is no way I could afford one right now. But I’m a Seiko collector, aren’t I. . . so what’s the nearest Japanese version? I picked up this model, the 66-8050, and put it on a solid link bracelet and. . . perfect! (Having said that, it's seen here on a shark band.) It’s a 36mm dia. dial (without crown) but with an 18mm lug width – I’m inspired by a watch that’s the same diameter but with a 20mm lug. So I got a 20mm bracelet. Maybe a purist would observe that it overshoots the ends of the lugs, but this is not something you notice when you wear it. (I have to hold my hand up and tell you that, in fact, it’s more like a vintage Air King or Precision.) Oh, and capturing the 66-8050 dial is really tricky, because of the way it reflects light. It’s not a charcoal grey like the SKX divers. While not glossy, it’s tough to capture it the way it really is. I guess the term is eggshell, if there is such a thing as eggshell black.
