Seiko 6215-7000 Vintage Diver

Post by koimaster » April 10th 2020, 10:14pm

A few weeks back, I pulled my normal Saturday morning routine. I woke up, made my wife and I strong cups of coffee using my handy dandy AeroPress, grabbed a yogurt, and plopped down on the couch to see what was what. I checked our site and stumbled upon Balazs’ cool barn find article and it got me to thinking about my newest acquisition, the Seiko 6215-7000. I’ll get to the buying process, but let’s first drop a little history.

The Genesis of the Seiko 6215-7000
If you’re not familiar with the history of Seiko dive watches, I’d encourage you to check out an article I wrote covering every release during the 1960s up until roughly 1980. I touch upon the Seiko 6215-7000 but let’s spend a longer moment on what this watch is and why it’s so important historically. In 1965, Seiko released the 62MAS (ref 6217-8000/1). It’s a watch that garners a high level of praise.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
