Seiko fans and dive watch diehards have a new model to chase down for the collection with the recreation of one of its most early dive watches. The 1970 Diver's Re-creation Limited Edition stays true to the original design, but also brings it up to date with a new dive-specific 8L35 movement with 50-hour power reserve, a super-hard coated 45mm stainless steel case with dual-curved sapphire crystal, and a Zaratsu polished bezel rim. 

Each watch is assembled and finished by hand at Seiko's Shizukuishi Watch Studio in northern Japan and is limited to 2,500 pieces worldwide.
