A very nice example of a SEIKOMATIC Weekdater 6206-8080 Automatic in a stainless steel case with the distinctive 'coin edge' bezel. This movement was the precursor to the 62GS series. The case and case back are in good condition having never been machine polished. Serviced in November 2020 and keeping excellent time at around -10 sec/day. Date at 3 o'clock and day of the week in Kanji at 6 o'clock featuring the iconic Saturday in blue and Sunday in red.
