Seiko Prospex 1968 Diver’s Re-Creation

Post by koimaster » September 30th 2019, 11:04am

In 1968, three years after the brand’s first dive watch was released (the 62MAS or Reference 6217-800x with 150-meter water resistance), Seiko’s engineers managed to raise the bar with a Hi-Beat divers’ watch with 300-meter water resistance (Reference 6159-700x). This model was not only the first dive watch to be equipped with a 10-beat high-precision automatic caliber (6159A), it also featured – like its predecessor from 1967 (Reference 6215-7000) – a case design with a one-piece structure, a screw-down crown at 4 o’clock and a rotating (albeit bidirectional) bezel. Fifty years later, Seiko decided to finally bring back one of its most sought-after dive-watch designs in a limited edition of 1,500 pieces. Another watch with similar roots, however, has already been around during the last 18 years and has built up quite a following.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
