:) I have been looking for this model to add to my collection for a very long time. There is only a handful of collectors that has this model in all original conditions. One came out for sale last week and I was not going to pass on it. Thanks to SCTF I was able to sell some of my other pieces to raise enough funds for this grail. A big thanks to MM!! :-*

Seiko 6306-7001 Scubapro 450







Here are some wrist shots.





Cheers,

Congrats!
But could you explain, what's the difference to a normal model besides the additional printing on the dial. Has it been originally pressure tested to 45 bars and therefore modified in any way?

Cheers,

Axel

Hi Axel!

150m= 450 feet.This model is similar to the regular model 6306-7001. These were made OEM by Seiko specially for Scubapro around 1978 similar to Rolex making watches for Comex.

Cheers,
Jeremiah

Hi John!
The watch came with the Seiko GL831 strap. It did not come with the Seiko Scubapro strap. ???
I have just installed a Seiko nylon bund strap from Seiko SKZ227 to my watch. Here is a few wrist shots.
