THE 1965 “62MAS” RE-CREATION, THE SLA037 (Check out our Blog here)
The first of the three models in this diver’s trilogy, the reference SLA037, is deeply inspired by the earliest of the lot, the 62MAS.
SLA037 has the same angular shape and integrated lugs as 62MAS.
The main evolution compared to the SLA017 is the material, and the case is made of Seiko’s “Ever-Brilliant Steel,” which has a brilliant white hue and is more corrosion-resistant than traditional steel.
SLA037 features a box-shape sapphire crystal and the bezel insert is black with full graduation. SLA037 blue-grey dial, matching the blue “tropic-like” silicone strap.
