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. Each of the three hands has a different design,
length and width and the LumiBrite on each has
a distinct shape so that the time is easily read,
under any circumstances. The dual-curved sapphire
crystal delivers exceptional clarity
from any viewing angle as well as enhanced durability. The differentiated 12, 6, and 9 markers ensure that
the watch can be read without error even 300 meters down.
The contrast of the black dial and special,
long lasting LumiBrite allows for legibility
even in the darkest environments.
The mono-directional rotating bezel ensures
the absolute safety that divers require. This re-creation incorporates a
Caliber 8L55 10-beat movement, specially optimized and adapted for use in a diver's watch with this structure.
This caliber beats at 36,000 vibrations per hour and has a power reserve of 55 hours, and it is also assembled by Seiko's leading craftsmen at the Shizukuishi Watch studio. The SLA025 is limited to 1500 pieces worldwide.
