1974 Vintage Seiko Bell-Matic 4006-6031 "Knight"

Seiko Bell-Matic 4006-6031 "Knight"
Circa 1974

Armor is meant to protect the soft, vulnerable insides of a knight. Adorned by protectors of yesteryears, the thick pieces of metal were chunky and a heft to move around, but they did their work, and somehow managed to make the wearer look awesome.

The Knight was so-named because of the generous amount of stainless steel devoted to its case. The thicker than usual case makes the watch dial smaller and stands the watch higher above the lucky user's wrist.

Add the polished hour markers and hands into the mix and you've got yourself a very stately timepiece. Strong and tough against the ravages of time, but gentlemanly and distinguished with its textured blue dial and bright red seconds hand.
