Original model

Seiko's first high-beat diver's watch, created in 1968, is an important part of this tradition. With a 10-beat high precision automatic caliber, a one-piece structure, a mono-directional rotating bezel and screw-down protection crown, the success of this model laid the foundation for the Seiko diver's watch development which has now, for 50 years, pushed back the frontiers of precision, durability and ease of use in watches for professional and recreational divers.

This model is a re-creation of the classic 1968 model, but with greatly enhanced specifications that incorporate the latest advancements in Seiko's craftsmanship and technology.
Like the original version, this recreation features a flat case with a sharp design. Seiko's unique Zaratsu polishing techniques accentuate the edges, bringing additional sharpness and beauty to the lugs.

While the original model was an air diver's watch, the re-creation has been upgraded for saturation diving via a resilient one-piece case structure. Even with this enhanced specification, the watch rests easily on any size wrist.
