    Here is my list of six:
    6139 - I restored a pile of these, but I can never find a really good one. Almost always they have big dents and gouges. Even the original one owner estate one I bought was dented and gouged. Must have been worn every day since the 70's and skipped down the drive way once a month. Most are Franken now on the web.


    SBDX011, Big regret trading for the Spring Drive version with the awful hands and super glossy finish. Had I know then that they would ruin it to make the 013, I would have never let it go. I mean geeze they had the excellent hands for over 40 years. Why mess with it:


    BFS- SNKF...- Best low cost bigger watch made. You could pick them up a little over $100 BNIB. I modded a few of them. Wish i kept one.





    SLA017 - Stupid for not buying one.


    Seiko SBDD003 Kinetic Direct Drive Scuba Diver


    Seiko Kinetic Stingray Diver Pipin Edition

    OK maybe I misunderstood. This may be game 6, I took it as the number we could choose.

    the pogue would be my choice of those I got a couple in mind so far but the ones I am thinking are long time discontinued like 60's / 70's

    I was seeing what more modern ones are also discontinued ..as in the link they have the likes of the monster ( thought still available ? ) same with the skx 07/9/11 is the skx 013 been discontinued now ?

    and are the recraft the same as don't see them around new much ?
