      S E I K O M A R I N E M A S T E R
      Certified: ISO 6425 'DIVERS'*
      8L35 AutoMAtic

      * This means the watch is certified to 125% of the rated pressure, in this case 375m. It also means the watch meets requirement for Mixed-Gas diving, and it is tested in 'over-pressure' environs
      additionally. Elements tested which an ISO6424 Certified Divers watch needs to be equipped with include:

      - Resistance to thermal shock.

      - Reliability under water

      - Water resistance.

      - Timing device, i.e. unidirectional rotating bezel.

      - Magnetic resistance.

      - Visibility in the dark.

      - Shock resistance.

      - Resistance of crowns and pushers to external force.

      - Reliability under water.

      - Strap/bracelet strength.

      - Resistance to salt water.

      When you look at many 'so called diver's watches it is easy to see why they fail to meet rigorous ISO standards, many watch Manufacturers test internally & claim 'Compliant to ISO 6425' but few are tested/certified to ISO 6425'.

      (The humble Seiko baby Tuna SBBN007 range for under NZD2000 are all approved for use as a divers watch in a Helium Enriched (i.e. mixed-Gas) environments )

      ' It was in 1965 that S E I K O made its first ever diver’s watch. Half a century on, the list of S E I K O’s achievements in this most challenging of arenas for watchmakers is long and distinguished. From the first use of a titanium case for a diver’s watch to the invention of the accordion-style strap and the twolayer case to the design of dial markers and hands of unparalleled legibility,
      S E I K O has been a pioneer in the field, and we are proud that the ISO 6425 standard was developed with S E I K O’s own standard as its base. Today, S E I K O’s diver’s watches are the world’s benchmark for excellence.' -
