Here we have a 2021 Seiko Prospex Blue SPB149J1 Limited Edition of 5500 pieces, it is a modern reinterpretation of their very first professional dive watch, the 62MAS, belonging to a collection of watches celebrating the 55th Anniversary of their first professional dive watch. The 40.5mm stainless steel case curves in all the right places, coated in DiaShield, a Seiko proprietary material, which gives the watch resilience to scratches and scuffs, the drilled lugs have a lug-to-lug length of 47.5mm and a thickness of 13.5mm giving the watch an impressive wrist presence. Satin brushed and polished shoulders transition with crisp lines, on the right side is a screw-down crown with deep knurling, and the unidirectional 120-click bezel has a striking white 60-minute scale on a matte black insert. A domed sapphire crystal AR coated on the inside sits above the sunray-brushed blue dial, and an outer minute track with applied baton indexes filled with LumiBrite marks the hours. At 3 o’clock a date window, and broad sword hands with LumiBrite infill are complemented by a pale gold-coloured sweeping second hand. At 12 o’clock we have the Seiko motif, at 6 o’clock Prospex X, Automatic and a pale gold coloured “Divers 200m”. On the reverse, a screw-down case back with the Seiko Tsunami in the centre and the Limited number out of 5500, inside an automatic Seiko 6R35, 24 jewels, 21,600 beats per hour, this workhorse movement has hacking and hand-winding for your convenience. The watch comes fitted on its original Seiko 20mm stainless steel bracelet with brushed surfaces and polished edges complete with a Seiko three-fold clasp and dive extension, all links included plus a Seiko 20mm blue Rubber strap with a signed keeper and pin buckle and comes with its Seiko presentation box, swing tag and papers.
The SPB range from Seiko has quickly become one of my modern favourites, the design is fantastic and offers a respectful nod to the original 62MAS but brings the design into the modern world with pops of colour, like this specific limited edition SPB149J1! The blue dial contrasts perfectly against the black bezel, then the subtle hint of gold with the second hand, all nice touches that work perfectly!
Seikos' history began in 1881 when Kintaro Hattori established the K. Hattori retail and repair store. In 1892 Seikosha was established by making wall clocks. 1895 saw the production of their first pocket watch. 1913 saw the launch of their first wristwatch, the Laurel. In 1924 the first Seiko was manufactured. Daini Seikosha (now Seiko Instruments Inc.) was established in 1937. Seiko was listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange in 1949. The Suwa factory became independent and formed Suwa Seikosha Co., Ltd. (now Seiko Epson Corporation in 1959). In 1956 Seiko launched Marvel as their first true in-house-made watch; they continued to make this watch until 1959. Japan’s first chronograph watch was introduced for the 1964 Tokyo Olympics; it was called the Seiko Crown Chronograph monopusher. Not stopping there Seiko launched Japan's first true divers watch, the Seiko Diver’s 150M fitted with the automatic Caliber 6217 which later was given the nickname “62MAS” by collectors. The company name was changed to the Seiko Corporation in 1990. Innovation at Seiko continues today with GPS Solar watches.
