1969 Seiko 6119-6050 Regatta Sport Diver


This all original, and rarely seen 6050 from February of '69 is often attached to the "Rally" diver family of the same era, But is in fact something else altogether. Listing the features of this stunning timepiece, we find a bright cerulean and turquoise 12 hour inner bezel, and an outer 60 minute count down in silver and black. Noteworthy of the outer bezel though, is that the 10 and 20 minute segments in a deep metallic red. The blaze orange second hand can be seen from miles away against the matte black dial with large, white luminous markers. It sports a 70m "Proof" demarcation, but this layout is actually designed for use just above the water as a means to track time during boating races known as regattas. The uniquely shaped case is 41mm in diameter, but with a much thinner profile than is typical of vintage Seiko divers, and sharp corners with polished, faceted lugs. It is unpolished with crisp edges, and the original circular brush finish on top is beautifully preserved. Paired with a slate gray two-piece NATO, it's incredibly comfortable and bound to be a favorite.
