NEW YEAR COMPETITION

on Sat Dec 30 2017, 18:04
I recently bought a Seiko dive watch, no ordinary dive watch though as this one is very very rare, so rare this is only the second one i have ever seen, it is what i would probably class as the ultimate Seiko diver watch [ some may disagree Wink ]
it was used by the SAS and numerous Armies and Navies throughout the world......
so not an easy one, but a simple question..........................

What watch is it ??????????

the winner is the first to guess and you can have as many shots as you want, the first to post here with the correct one will win an unknown as yet prize, unknown in that i will try to match the prize to the winners taste [ TRY I SAID ! Shocked ]

anyway good luck

The only Seiko that I know used in the armed forces is the Seiko RAF Gen 2 7T27-7A20  



As far as I am aware they where not issued to the SAS though and I would not think they are as rare as the one Iceblue mentioned .

A last throw of the dice for me is....

Seiko 6125-7000 





Seiko 6215-7000 or

Seiko 6159-7001



Hopefully Robti is right with his one. I never knew there were 
so many rare Seiko models in their early Diver watches.

sorry but no
you wouldn't think it would be so difficult, there are limits to the amount of dive models Seiko made, but you are all missing it
