After the raging success of Seiko’s 62MAS reissue last year (resulting in the SPB051/053) Seiko has decided to continue the trend of modernizing and re-releasing classic divers this year.
Just announced at this years major watch fair in Basel, Switzerland are six new Prospex dive watches that are recreations/variations of a couple of classic Seiko divers.
First are four watches that are inspired by a watch first released in 1968, powered with a hi-beat movement and capable of 300 meters depth.A lot of people are loving this green dialed and bezeled variation of the 1968 classic. The SLA019 is a limited edition of 1,968 pieces, and while it’s definitely still a high end Seiko diver, it’ll be available for less than the SLA025 above. Seiko’s recommended retail price is 3,200 Euro.
