Default Water “Proof” Clarification Sought

HI....

I”m trying to piece together information on Seiko’s use of the term “Proof” as it pertains to water. From I’ve read this term was used on the 62MAS and the 6105 (early versions).

Is it accurate that around 1970 Seiko stopped using Water Proof and started using Water Resistant. If so, does anyone know how many different models from the late 60’s have the word PROOF on it? When, if it’s known, was the term Water Proof first used and on what model?

If there is any research on this topic on this site and someone can point me in that direction, I would greatly appreciate it.

Rich

I think it was first used on these models. This watch comes from 1960.
