Look forward to the coming of spring with Seiko’s exceptional annual model releases. Recently, this Japanese powerhouse has launched a fantastic array of reissues for both its Presage and Prospex lines. The spotlight shines on its relaunch of the famed 60s dive watches, the Seiko Prospex 62MAS 200M Automatic Gilt Ref. SBDC105. This remake of Seiko’s classic design is fitted with upgrades that will be sure to impress.
Proven to be reliable and accurate, the 6R15 movement powers the SBDC051 and 53 ever since their launches three years ago. Always seeking to improve, Seiko unveils its latest engine, the 6R35 calibre, an upgrade from the workhorse 6R15. This movement is used to power the 62MAS Gilt, making this timepiece the first of its kind to feature Seiko’s new automatic calibre. Maintaining operation at 21,600 bph (3 Hertz) with hacking and hand winding capabilities, this engine has 24 jewels and a longer power reserve of 70 hours, a whopping 20 hours more than the 7R and 6S.
The 62MAS Gilt has a 40.5mm stainless-steel case treated with Seiko’s DiaShield coatings that ensure scratch-protection and greater corrosion resistance. Additionally, the bezel of this watch has minimal free play in its smooth 120-click unidirectional rotations. Admire the mixture of satin brush and Seiko high polishing on the sides of the entire timepiece and the Zaratsu polished line on its case side that adds a modern twist to this vintage diver. Its dainty case allows for a more intricate and refined finishing as well.
Sporting a sunburst cappuccino brown dial and a shiny black bezel, the 62MAS Gilt freshens up the original 62MAS design with its symmetrical applied markers.
Furthermore, its watch hands are painted with long-lasting Lumibrite, allowing for excellent readability even in the dark. The stunning golden tones on its handset as well as hour and bezel markers grace this timepiece with grandeur and class. Bringing back the original 1965 handset design, this diver shows off a sleek second hand with gleaming gold accents.
Carrying 55 years of history, the Seiko Prospex 62MAS 200M Automatic Gilt Ref. SBDC105 is a much-anticipated addition to the Prospex collection. It is a well fabricated Seiko diver which boasts a slim and gently tapered profile built with enhanced specs and an upgraded movement. This dive watch is testament to Seiko’s high standards and customer-centric ethos as the esteemed watchmaker goes the extra mile to cater to its market’s interests by observing what appeals to its audience. Overall, the 62MAS Gilt is an elegant timepiece that will find its way into the collections of many dive watch enthusiasts.
