Seiko has been on an absolute killing in 2020 with a range of knockout releases. For example, in March they releases a series of watches for the 55th anniversary festivities. Joining that series are these two tasty diver’s watches. Quick notes below!
The 1965 Diver’s Re-creation SLA043J1
While faithful to the 1965 design, this new Prospex diver’s watch has greatly enhanced functionality. It has a box-shaped sapphire crystal and 200m water resistance for greater reliability. The case back bears the same dolphin emblem as the 1965 original.
The watch is offered in a special box with a blue color additional strap made of silicon. This beauty is available as from November 2020
The 1970 Diver’s Modern Re-interpretation SPB183J1
The new Prospex re-creation of this 1970 diver’s watch is slightly larger than the original but faithful in every other respect to its design.
The case was given that wide and by now familiar looking flowing design to protect the crown at the 4 o’clock position.
It is powered by Caliber 6R35 that delivers a power reserve of 70 hours. The case has a super-hard coating and a dual-curved sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating and is 200 meter water resistant. Haute horlogerie detail: The upper surface of the bezel rim is Zaratsu polished to a perfect mirror finish.
The watch is offered in a special box with blue color additional strap made of silicon. Also available as of November 2020.
