Parkbury's View: Blimey! Take a look at those baton hour-markers and those long hands! What a perfect daily wearer!
Dunn's Assessment: Now that we have it on our complimentary James Bond Nato strap, it's lighter weight and looks just wonderful. From a suit to a dive-suit, i think it would suits all occasions!.
Story behind the watch: This Seiko diver is not only a limited edition, but it is also an Anniversary edition timepiece. The 50th year anniversary of Seiko making dive-watches for professionals is quite an achievement by the company and it no doubt shows on this watch. They have removed their Hardlex-crystal and replaced it with a beautiful sapphire crystal. Now it can be used as a true desk-diver to an actual dive-watch for those who wear a wet-suit. The hour markers and hands are different from the other Sumo models and this is probably one of the best collectible Seiko divers out there. Ours includes the original metal bracelet and also a brand new "James Bond" Nato strap.

Opinions of notable watch connoisseurs
"The mixing of vintage references, paired with a new tempered bezel insert and the classic SUMO case, results in a watch that doesn’t feel derivative, but rather wholly fresh and modern." -- Worn and Wound
" It might sound that this 50th anniversary has to do with this particular model, but that is not the case. Seiko celebrates the 50th anniversary of their professional diving watches, introduced in 1965. " -- Fratello Watches
