Last year was Seiko’s 55th anniversary involvement with divers watch, and of course there should be no surprises that Seiko’s first diver, the 62MAS, has been revived once again to commemorate their success in the watch industry.

- SPB147J1 – dark brown ‘gilt’ dial, cream bezel scale, black silicone strap (SBDC105)
- SPB149J1 – blue dial, white bezel scale, stainless steel bracelet and blue silicone strap included – this version is a limited edition of 5,500 pieces (SBDC107)
With the reference as the grandfather of all Seiko’s divers watch, the influence it had for Seiko watch models to comes in terms of design, measurements, and even the specifications are bound to somewhat similar to its ancestor. The latest 62MAS reissued makeover are available in four different versions:
It was unfortunate that our existing fitted bracelets for the re-issued 62MAS (SPB5X) were not able to fit on the latest reissued 62MAS (SPB14X) models. Because of that, we had to manufacture a new mold for the 62MAS (14X) models. For the time being, we have the Super O Boyer and Super J Louis model bracelets that are fitted to be used on the 62MAS 14X models.
