This year Seiko continues the recreation of their classic diver models with the SLA033J1 based on the 61MC 022.
The original 61MC 022 was released in 1970, forty nine years ago, and was the successor to the 61MC 010 that was released in 1968. The main difference between these models was the shape of the case. The 61MC 022 introduced a very distinctive asymmetrical case shape with a large crown guard that makes the watch instantly recognizable.
This same case shape is reproduced in the newly announced SLA033J1 but this is slightly larger than the original model. The stainless steel case has a super hard coating and the top surface of the bezel is zaratsu polished. The watch is assembled by hand in the Shizukuishi Watch Studio where mechanical Grand Seiko models are also created.
