My new Seiko Scubamaster

Post by kahuna74 on 2013-07-01, 07:57

I am sitting here waiting for the mailman to drop off my Newest member to my Seiko family, a Scubamaster. Model is a M-796-5A00. Awesome looking watch to me and has been on my list for a couple of years now. They seem to go for anywhere from 700.00 to an insane 1800.00. The watch sold new when they came out in the 1990's for 1200.00 I believe. Almost all of them had a blue-green colored bezel and this one started out with one as well. The black bezel is a Seiko replacement and I think it looks better with the blue dial. I am getting it with the original bezel as well, so I will have all the stock parts for this watch. Anyway I will post some of my own pictures when I find some time and after I wear the watch for a few days.

Nice! What are the functions? It looks like it has plenty.

Just a few of the features are: Day/date, 24 hour alarm, separate depth alarms, temperature readouts for both water and air, and a barometric pressure graph for use in weather forecasting - and all of these were [and still are] very accurate and state of the art. Along with these are a chronograph 30 hour timer, diving speed indicator, dive recall feature, and much more. This is a true divers watch andhas many more functions as well. Its about 49mm by 55mm so it's not small.
