SPB143J1 / 145J1 / 147J1 / 149J1



Just saw this getting posted about here and thought it may be worth getting it’s own thread going.

https://www.seikowatches.com/us-en/products/prospex/special/55th-anniversary-limited/

It looks like an LE of 5,500 and a price of 140,000 yen.

Sapphire crystal

200m

Diashield

6R35

40.5mm diameter

47.6mm lug to lug

13.2mm thick


For my part I love the size and the dial, case and hands. No chapter ring.

I have been looking for awhile and I think It is almost my perfect seiko diver dare I say it.

There are also some non limited editions with grey and brown dials.

SPB149/SBDC107 Seiko Diver’s 1965 Modern Re-Interpretation

Nice to see the other variants!

I like the 143 in what appears to be a grey sunburst dial.

Hoping those come in a little cheaper as they appear to not be limited.

I don’t think I have been this certain and excited about buying a watch in a long time.

That grey dial 143 with 62MAS inspiration at hopefully a price point in line with the 51/53 and 61/63 series of recent reinterpreted divers is just exactly what I was hoping Seiko would make but frankly I never imagined they would.

Love the size
Love the case
Love the dial
Love the hands
Love the bezel
Love the crystal
Love the simple bracelet

That is a lot more “loves” than I have hit on this one than any other seiko diver for me. Including the blue mm300 that I have been eyeing.


Hopefully more details on the non limited models come to light soon. Especially pricing and availability.

Are they likely to be released at the same time as the LE in June or does Seiko usually stagger the non limited models behind later?

Ditto, throw a red triangle on the 147 and I would fly to Japan to pick it up ;-)

Looks a lot like my SKX mod with stargaze II dial and ceramic coin edge. But that gold seconds hand got me thinking I need to finish it off.

Any pricing on the 143 yet? That one would be my choice. I don't see why they'd make it sub 1k retail though since it would step on the SBDC's oversized toes.

Wow. I could get down with this. Totally missed the SPB149 part of the Trilogy announcement just seeing the High Beat. Not cheap but at least accessible and enough in the edition to be able to get one. Will be following very closely. This exactly one day after getting a new green Sumo and already looking at next Seiko.

That 143 is the watch I've been looking for for a couple of years now.

I could see this displacing a few of the watches in my collection.

The 49 is indeed fantastic. Love that rubber strap to complement the dial and the yellow/gold accents are nice as well
