1970 Seiko 6119-7173 70m Sport Diver “Rally” (Proof)


Seiko produced no shortage of sport divers in the late 60's and 70's, but none so memorable and as sought after as those that carry the "Rally" distinction. So named for their checkered bezels and dials, they are an instantly recognizable combination of color and cool. This example from December of 1970 is one exception. The case is a 42mm barrel that’s unpolished with the original finishes still visible. The knurled bezel rotates smoothly in either direction, and the insert shows only moderate wear. Beneath it, the sunburst dial is a lacquered azure blue. It’s set with polished applied markers, each with a single silver strap through the center. The hour and minute hands are polished batons, and in contrast to the dial, the sweep is a bright blaze orange. Framing the dial is a steeply angled chapter ring consisting of silver minute blocks against larger black hour blocks with luminous plots. As Seiko sport divers go, the “Rally” is the king of cool, and a must have in any collection. We’ve paired this one with a genuine and period correct Tropic Star “Rally” diver’s strap for the ultimate in vintage diver street cred.
