A short History of the Seiko Diver’s watch

It all started way back in 1965 when Seiko released their very first dedicated diver’s watch. The Seiko 6217 was in production from 1965 to 1968. It was their first watch water resistant: to a depth of 150m. It came in black dial and black dive time black bezel only – no colour choices back then. The Seiko 6217 was powered by the Calibre 6217 automatic movement with 17 jewels running at 18,000bph. The 6217 movement is non-hacking and cannot be hand wound. This model is often referred to as the Seiko 62MAS-010. 62 from the Calibre 6217 and MAS from Model Automatic Selfdater > more about the history of the Seiko Dive Watch here
