In 1965, renowned Japanese watchmaker Seiko launched its first-ever dive watch — the 62MAS — and now celebrating its 55th anniversary, the brand is re-creating three of its most iconic models over the five decades, upgraded with a modern twist.

The three-watch collection brings back the 1968 Professional Diver’s 300m Re-creation as seen on the left, with an updated top-of-the-line 8L55 automatic movement. Pictured in the middle is the 1965 Diver’s Re-creation, equipped with the same in-house 8L55 movement. Finally, rounding off the pack is the 1975 Professional Diver’s 600m Re-creation, nowadays known as the “Tuna,” with an 8L35 automatic movement. All three share the same color scheme of deep navy dials and rubber straps paired with a black bezel, and are constructed from the company’s own Ever-Brilliant Steel, which is an extremely corrosion-resistant metal often used on ships or other marine structures.

For those interested, the three Seiko Re-creation divers can all be bought separately at select authorized dealers, or altogether in a special-edition set, limited to just 100 made. Head over to the brand’s website to learn more now.

Elsewhere in watches, Louis Vuitton has crafted a Tambour Curve Flying Tourbillon.
