SEIKO Prospex 1965 DIVER’s Re-Creation SLA037J1

This is the new Prospex 1965 Diver’s Re-Creation ref. SLA037J1 (JP ref. SBEX009) part of a TRILOGY due for release this summer.

Design-wise this is a faithful recreation of the OG model from 1965; however it has been well and truly brought up to date for 2020.

It boasts a case made from Seiko’s Ever-Brilliant Steel allowing for increased durability while being enhanced by a super-hard coating that protects the watch from scratches.

The case which is virtually identical to the OG except from its diameter which has been increased by 1.9mm is also fitted with an old-school box-shaped Sapphire crystal with inner AR-coating.

The 1965 Diver’s Re-Creation is powered by a 10-beat Caliber 8L55 made by Seiko's skilled craftsmen and women at the Shizuku-ishi Watch Studio in Morioka in the north of Japan.

It is water-resistant to 200 meters as indicted on its case-back that bears the same dolphin emblem as the 1965 original.

The 1965 Diver’s Re-Creation SLA037J1 is a Limited edition of 1,100 pieces and will be available from June 2020. It has a Japanese MSRP of 650,000 +TAX.
