SEIKO SEIKOMATIC 6601-7991 "SILVERWAVE" Either the Great Wave of Kanagawa, symbol of the Seiko divers. You may be interested to know that the first time that the famous "silver wave symbol" that used a Seiko Silverwave was precisely in 1962.

Silverwave Series 1962

is the ancestor of the current dive 7S26 200m, and the father of all divers of the mark. Just spurred by the Citizen that he had won by the hand seiko, successfully introducing three years before (1959), its first water resistant watch, (the PARAWATER) Was that seiko decided to enter the world of diving watches Along with the symbol on the back, also the first to have screw caps. and the first automatic movement seiko with this type of case. The dial is the first design of Seiko with a bidirectional rotating inner bezel. He was also the most luminous needles of the time and the first 50 meters seiko to resist.

silverwave 1962

early versions were with white dial / bezel blank white dial / black bezel. and rarer sphere with nacre / mother of pearl bezel (CREMA).

Something was released after a version entirely in BLACK

The watch was very expensive (11,000 yen retail), for carrying a 603 (6201B) or caliber automatic movement (62SW) with 20j.

Two years later, in 1964, production of the clock was stopped and was replaced by a less expensive version.

The 1964 silverwave 30m

The target market was to reach the younger so the price had to fall apart. Yen in 8200 was still quite expensive for young college-age but cheaper than the previous model.

The watch was cheaper because the movement was changed to a caliber 2451 (66SW) with 17 jewels. In addition, only supported at 30 meters.

Although manufacturing a large number of units of these models

actually production continued for a short time. The 50m by two years, from 1962 to 1964, and the 30m three years, from 1964 to 1966. 30m perhaps the best I have seen is that of Alberto ..

The beauty of its lines is undeniable

DESPITE BEING A less expensive models, The series 6601B, however, is particularly sought after by collectors in Japan, which is similar to those found 66SA 5 series Seiko 5 Sportsmatic (6619A w/21 gauge jewelry).

Box 1964

the design of the box "wave" looks exactly like the one currently in a variety of Seiko watches, 7S26 from diving .... to its current line of watches as 300 Prospex professional.

Two Years Before silverwave Gama, in 1960 Seiko walked concentrated on making his mark an internationally recognized brand And throw the market its high-end watches to compete directly with the luxury Swiss watch industry.

We have seen that the flagship high-end relojerai Actual is the range of seiko Credor .. However, for the purists of the brand, the best Seiko NEVER were the ones who made almost 50 years ago Seiko manufactures to compete with the Swiss

Gauges handmade one by one with 36 000 Hi-beat alternation

To understand the why of these tremendous efforts, technical and economic, made by Seiko to develop the Grand Seiko and manufactured only from 1960 until 1974, must watch to understand the reality of time The Swiss were the kings indicutibles the world watches and it was not easy to find a place on the high luxury market is still semi-unknown a Japanese brand that effort was just to gain prestige, it sought to take advantage of this international recognition not only to gain a foothold in the domestic market, the Japanese market but also in the high clock or watch High-end, then dominated by the organizations Central Clock . To create these Grand Seiko, and gain international prestige, Seiko, went to work on two of its factories, Daini and Suwa Seikosha Seikosha, the best engineers, creating even internal rivalry, and developing different calibers in each factory. In the 70's the best international recognition of the quality of a clock Competition was obtained from the Observatory of Neuchatel, different manufacturers, provided Switzerland, presented their models and were subjected to harsh tests of accuracy and only a few managed to Official Recognition the Centre. Seiko, was presented to the contest for the first time in 1964, four years after having worked their teams in the two factories mentioned on that occasion, Seiko occupied the positions 153 and 144 in the contest.

SEIKO 7018-5000 "Monaco & Monza Response Ă&#x201C; Heuer Seiko We started with the series and most important of the 70 OF SEIKO, And the first model is the rare 7018-5000 With electric blue dial, known affectionately Like all Seiko Squared who shared housing with as Seiko "MONACO"

We are in the early '70s, and watches that "parties with corduroy were unquestionably the Heuer Leonidas In 1971 it was fashionable actor Steve McQueen With the movie "Le Mans"

And his watch, the Heuer Monaco

Poorly (for my taste), republished by TAG: neutral:

Edouard Heuer founded E. Heuer & Compagnie in 1860 which later became the hands of their children. In 1964 the company merged with Leonidas Factory Ltd, becoming Heuer-Leonidas SA A few years later absorbed Heuer Leonidas and as early as 1985 Techniques d'Avant-Garde acquired the majority shareholding from its name brand Tag Heuer.

Well, At that time the Japanese were much given to "copy all", although not as blatantly as replicas of today .. They'll do it with more class and implement its own vision of things ..

SEIKO 7018-5000 (1972)

The 7018-5000 was a version exclusively for the Japanese domestic market is not exported so it is extremely rare and there are very few units in circulation

existed in the same series another model The 7018-8000 this time with conventional box and Seiko also commonly known as "Monza"

SEIKO 7018-8000

the similarity of style with the reissue of Tag is clear ...
