Seiko will launch two more diver models to celebrate the Seiko Diver 55th Anniversary - SBDX039 and SBDC123. SBDX039 is another 62MAS re-creation while SBDC123 is a re-interpretation of the modern 6105 Diver. Both SBDX039 and SBDC123 are limited editions that are designed with a marine blue dial, yet they are more of a sapphire-like blue that we have rarely seen before! The marine blue color concept is to express the beautiful scenery of the Antarctic Ocean with rough floating icebergs.
SBDX039 is like all other 62MAS re-creations, it uses Seiko's original pyramid-shaped pattern reinforced black silicone strap. Kept the same appearance of a 1965 mechanical diver 62MAS, but upgraded the exterior to the world’s highest corrosion resistance stainless steel - “Ever-Brilliant Steel”.
This Seiko Prospex SBDX039 is limited to 1700 pieces; where the serial number of each is engraved on the screw-back case. Similar to the other 55th Anniversary models, SBDX039 came with a special box that includes an optional band made of marine blue reinforced silicone with a unique pyramidal pattern. The whole package is luxurious yet subtle.
