New 62MAS 3 Facet hands for Seiko SPB051 and SPB053 (aka modern 62MAS)

Edit : 30/4/2018 (added more pix)

During Baselworld 2017 – The Eagerly Awaited Seiko 62Mas Reedition SLA017 Prospex was released.
But not only its expensive at Euro3800 but it is also a limited production quantity. Therefore its probably out of reach for many Seiko enthusiast.

………for some reason Seiko also makes the SPB051 and SPB053………which is term as the modern 62MAS and also cheaper too !
Its dial design being alike to the 62MAS <which is good> but the hands (Monster style) is not a favourite to many.

*i will not touch on the specification and review of these watches as there is plenty available on the net.

What it lack is a quality 3 facet hands set to replace the SBP051 and SBP053 and update them to what i believed ; as a better interpretation of the Modern 62MAS.

I have decided to invest on the tooling and fixture to manufacture these 62MAS 3 Facet laser cut (C3 Swiss lume) hands.

After months of planning, drawing, and money ! Available now is the New 62MAS 3 Facet hands for Seiko SPB051 and SPB053 (aka modern 62MAS).

  5. i am wondering if there is any difference in the brightness, duration,
    or color, compared to the hour markers”?

    the photos look good!

    1. Seiko uses their own proprietary Lumibrite on its markers.
      The colour is pretty close (when not lume).
      When lume, it 62MAS hands is slighter greener. But it gives a good contrast between the marker and hands.

  6. Nice post, thank you! I have a question regarding the movement ring material of the SPB051 and SPB05 I can not see it in the picture that you posted. Is the movement ring made of plastic or metal?
    Thanks

    1. The SPB051 / 53 uses the 6R15 movement.
      Similar to the 7Sxx and NH35/36, they uses the plastic movement spacer.

  7. Email me at seikoparts.wordpress@gmail.com if you needs more information.

    Hello,
    will you be so kind, please, and tell me the proper “height” of the second hand for the NH36 (4R36) movement? By the “height” I mean the length of the “tube” which holds the hand on the shaft. Cousins UK offer second hands with the height 0.7, 1.0, 1.3, 1.5 and 1.8 milimeters,
    see https://www.cousinsuk.com/product/centre-seconds-by-size
    Grazie mille
    Martin

    1. O.7 – 0.8mm.
      75mm to be the best.

  9. We really love your site, it has nice information, Have a nice day!

    1. Thanks.
      More contend to come. Do keep checking in.
