Seiko 62MAS Diver's Watch

Why We Love It

It's hard not to appreciate the Seiko divers. 

From the rare as hen's teeth Hi Beat 6159 to the film-famous 6105 and 6309 models to the economy workhorse SKX007, Japanese watchmakers perfected incredibly well-made tool watches decades ago- and at prices that make the most diehard Swiss watch fans bristle with jealousy. 

The 6217—also know as 62MAS (for autoMAtic Self-dater)—was designed to be a workhorse. At 37mm, the case, with its sloping lugs that cling to the wrist, was intended to eliminate any potential weak points. However, the fickle nature of the 62MAS’s gaskets—as well as the lack of a screw-down crown—often led to a build-up of helium which in turn could cause the crystal to pop off.

This particular example features a faded bi-directional bezel that gives the piece its appropriate vintage aesthetic. The thick steel case fitted on a black rubber strap makes this Seiko as durable as it gets. Upon purchase, you may of just found yourself a new diving partner...

The Story

For over 135 years, Seiko has been cranking out innovative and impeccably engineered watches at every price point, from entry level Seiko 5s to world-class high horology pieces under the Grand Seiko brand. Underpinning Seiko's efforts has been the mass production of reliable and accurate movements capable of being paired with a wide array of case and dial configurations. 

Seiko is the piece we always go to when we go out into the field. Whether we're wearing it while hoofing it up a mountain, trudging through the wetlands in search of winged dinner, fishing for brownies or bonefish, or just getting it sandy at the beach, this piece serves a very important role as a timepiece that can take a beating while also giving us watch snobs something to wear that we can be truly proud of.
