STEELDIVE SD1962 "62MAS" Automatic 200m Diver Watch

STEELDIVE SD1962 "62MAS" Automatic 200m Diver Watch

The SD1962 pays tribute to the 62MAS, the watch that would influence production of Seiko diver watches for 55 years. Launched in 1965, it’s is known in the collecting community as the 62MAS – MAS being an acronym for “autoMAtic Selfdater” (an automatic movement with date).


Eh? We don’t get it. Seems a bit tortuous. May as well call it the “Tom elf ater” though what the elves have done to Tom for him the hate them we don’t know.


Many of the 62MAS design elements; hands, bezel, shape case, indexes still influence several of today’s Seiko Prospex Diver’s watches. Simple, minimalist, and efficient, the 62MAS has a classic ‘skin-diver’ case with a non-protected oversized crown at 3 o’clock for a sleek, retro feel. It may be a 42mm watch, but with a lug to lug size of only 48mm, it’s compact, short on the wrist and well-balanced.


“Diamond geezers” probably want something flash but the SD1962 is informal and unfussy, tough and reliable and with a tried and trusted movement. This is the quintessential everyday man’s watch for a “Ton” a couple a “Scores” and a “Deep Sea Diver”*.


*A hundred, two twenties and a fiver.
