There is no denying that Seiko offered amazing Sports Divers from the late 60's throughout the 70's. Beefy cases and an array of colors and designs made for several memorable pieces, many of which still top the lists of collectors today as they're simply iconic and their designs are still relevant by today's standards.
Nicknamed the “UFO” due to the 43mm saucer-shaped tonneau case, this set we have to offer is as good as it gets.
The Ref.6119-7160 model showcases a delicately textured matte black dial adorned with large polished monument markers. The hour and minute hands are rectangular bars with a reflective polished surface and black stripes that complement the hour markers. Additionally, a vibrant red second hand provides a striking contrast. Surrounding the dial is a bezel labeled with increments of 10 minutes, and it features a prominent luminous emblem at the zero position. This Sports diver is also equipped with a rotating bezel that can be freely turned in both directions using the crown.
The case and bracelet are factory sharp as they were freshly made from Suwa and still retain the original sticker on the clasp with remnants of the blue protective film on the caseback. To complete the offering, it also comes with its original price tag and original 5 Sports box which will certainly make it the highlight of any collection.
The watch is unused, works flawlessly, and the set will be sold as is. If you wish to service it, it will be for an extra. Please let us know if you wish to service it.
