    One of the most well-loved brands amongst watch enthusiasts, the Japanese manufacturer Seiko is best known for its precision, innovative spirit and supreme craftsmanship. Seiko’s development of diver’s watches started in the 1960s, during the time when the manufacturer decided to develop a wristwatch that could withstand the pressures of the deep waters to help them compete with the Swiss watchmaking brands.

    In 1967, Seiko released the reference 6215-7000 which features water resistance up to 300 meters. For this model, Seiko incorporated a monobloc case as well as a screw down crown to protect the watch. The winding crown was moved to 4 o’clock, giving some unique personality to the watch. Compared to the earlier models, the hands of the watch are thicker and contain more luminous material. Due to technical complexity, the reference 6215-7000 was in production for approximately 1 year only, making the watch extremely rare in the secondary market. Highly collectable and coveted by collectors, the present lot offers an exclusive opportunity for watch connoisseurs to possess a fine piece of Japanese mastery.
