FS: Very nice Seiko 6159-7001-- $8000

Hey all-

Had a few too many incoming recently, so need to thin the herd a bit. This is one I wear fairly often and have gotten a lot of compliments on it (especially the cool second hand).

Without further ado, up for sale is a very nice (imo) Seiko diver, some would say the GRAIL Seiko Diver, 6159-7001 from 1969. They were only made for a year, and as such are pretty rare. Some info on this particular piece:

Dial - Great condition.
Hands - Great condition, no blemishes to speak of.
Bezel - Scratch between 20 - 30 markers. Otherwise in really nice shape
Case - Various light scratches, could likely be removed with a light polish, but this is a watch that was used and not babied, so I kept them for character.
Crystal - Also scratched a bit, can find a replacement on ebay or some polywatch might do the trick
Movement - Serviced in 2015 by previous owner. I must admit, I have not opened it since I received it, and cannot find the images. If there is serious interest, I can have it opened, or will take a return if the movement is not original.
Band - Will come with original XGL 731 band, which has a slight tear in it

I'm asking $8000 even, which includes shipping and insurance in US.
Worldwide shipping is available but will be at cost.
Wire transfer preferable.

If there are questions, please feel free to reach out!
