Thank you sirs. This forum inspired me to complete the set.

I just wanted the 62mas and the apocalypse now and was prepared to wait for the third diver that seiko will reissue that i would want.

Then realized after 6105, it’s the 6309/6306 already.

So revisited the 6195 reissue and here we are.

It is lovely! But you have a difficult decision of what to wear every time.

Lovely collection, congrats!
I have to say I like the older generation better. The rehaut looks so deep on the new models.

Very nice collection!

There’s also the 6159-7010 / sbdx005 that needs to be there!

Ty sir. But i think and hope this it for me and seiko diver reissues. Never really a fan of the tunas.

Was curious once and got one. Tried to sell to no avail.

Then bought two more just because part of zimbe series.

They do unexpectedly (since they dont look it) wear well and comfy.

I see what you mean.

Dunno if this is an advantage, just noticed last night, the new generation all have lug holes.

Nice to have it behind you, that is having the Vintage Diver Collection representing all the Grails that many of us Strive to Aquire . Now for the Future? Seiko is and imo will continue to offer Stunning Watches. I recently have become a fan of the New GS Elegant Line. I think your SLA-025? looks Beautiful next to all the Vintage Beauties Nice Work.

These were the group of watches that made me fall head over heels for vintage Seiko... and still do, despite my recent Chrono binge.
