SOLD

The year end downsizing continues as I put up a few more 8F56 watches for sale. This one here is a black dial SLT083.

This is a dual crown GMT with a pretty interesting design. The center part of dial has a sandpaper texture, the middle portion slopes up with inset indices, then it meets the internal compass bezel on the outside. The case has integrated lugs. So while it creates a seamless look, it also makes strap changes virtually impossible.

Of course, the venerable 8F56 movement is the centerpiece of the watch. It is a high accuracy quartz movement (spec'ed to within 20 seconds a year when worn regularly) with perpetual calendar and a 10-year battery change interval,. The 8F56 is also a "true GMT" movement, otherwise known as a "traveller's GMT". The hour hand can be quickset independently at 1 hour intervals. To many people this is preferred over the other kind of GMT watch, where the 24 hr hand is the quickset hand.

Specs of this watch are:
  • Case width: 39mm w/o crown guard, 41mm with (measured from 3 to 9 o'clock)
  • Lug to lug length: 46mm
  • Thickness: 12.8mm
  • Movement: Seiko 8F56 HAQ w/ GMT & perpetual calendar
  • WR rating: 100 meters


The watch is in excellent condition. As seen in the pictures, there is very little sign of wear on the watch. The bracelet does have minor desk diving marks. The domed crystal is perfect. The movement is running well and the perpetual calendar has been properly set. The bracelet should fit up to 7.25", and does not come with any spare links.
