1994 Seiko 7002-700A 150m Sport Diver “Pepsi”

0.00

As production of the 6309 ended in 1988, Seiko introduced it’s next generation of 150m Sport Divers by way of the 7002. It is the direct predecessor to the SKX line of today, and owning one can feel like the perfect blend of old and new. This example from April of ‘94 is amazing, and a picture of perfected patina. The case is unpolished with a few minor nicks throughout, though its original finishes and bevels are still clearly visible. The bezel action is silky smooth, and the rarer “Pepsi” insert has had just the right amount of exposure to turn the deep red to a fiery orange, and the navy to a royal blue. The dial is perfect. It’s matte black with rectangular markers at every hour except the 12. There, two opposing triangles meet at a point just above the silver SEIKO logo. The luminous material, in this case promethium, has developed a silvery khaki gray patina that is even throughout. The hands are recognizable in design, and also sport a rich even patina. They are free of corrosion or oxidation, and retain their original polished finish. A large screw down crown sits at the 4 o’clock position between two protruding crown guards. The case back bears the signature “Tsunami” logo at center, and the lightning bolt marking it’s Daini heritage. It’s completely original aside from a replacement mineral crystal. We’ve paired it with a heavy desert tan NATO for a tactical, but comfortable finish. Truly, a stunning example of Seiko’s fourth generation diver. The 7002 is a date only calibre, and post service, this one is keeping near perfect time. With so many examples fitted with modified and aftermarket parts, opportunities to own an original example are becoming increasingly rare. Don’t miss yours.
