Seiko Automatic Scuba Diver's Watch with Green Dial

Post by Mortuus on 2013-08-27, 21:07

This just in...from the soggy Philippines:



Easy to wear and very comfortable with replacement Seiko rubber strap, complete with "diver's pleat" on both sides of the case.  It's nice and long for larger wrist sizes, as can be seen below.



Just L@@K at that dial in all its (almost certainly post-market) guh-reen glory... alien 



A different view...



An always-beautiful Seiko caseback.



Same caseback, more detail...



And, best of all, Mort gets to take a short trip down Memory Lane with a color that's not only his favorite, but a perfect match with a favorite USN squadron...



Mort is a happy camper yet again...review to follow in a few weeks.  Many thanks for looking, as always.

Very nice mort. My orange Dialed Seiko Diver came from over there and then I sent it to Hong Kong to have Harold do some work on it. one of my favorite watches.

Nice watch; thanks for sharing.

One point - I thought those divers had pepsi bezels? Red from 12 o'clock to 4 o'clock; blue the rest of the way. I've never seen one all black before.

They are rebuild over in the Islands. My Orange dial 0020 had after market hands and an after market pepsi bezel. I have sense changed out the bezel,crystal, and hands to get it to look like this.

Case has also been bead blasted.

She is a little rough looking now as she gets a lot of wrist time.

Love this watch. So much you can still do with the older Seiko Divers.

I like those last two pictures. The one on the top has a pretty strong Rolex Explorer vibe to it. Were you intending that to be an Explorer homage?

Although I don't like NATO straps myself, that NATO looks good there.

That is the same watch in both pictures. The second one is with a flash on Iphone. I change out the straps a lot because its like getting a new watch. I never thought about it looking like an Explorer? No, That was not what I was going for. Just how the dial looked in my head I guess? The Nato is what Harold sent it back on, so I seem to go back to it a lot.
