I thought I would post some of the info on my first generation Seiko Diver for others who may be interested...Bought restored on ebay for $60. not a bad deal imo.
Seiko Diver 7002-7000: This is the international version (non-Japan / non-U.S.) of the normally aspired 150m-rated 7002 (1st generation) diver. Except for the case back marketing code, it is identical to the 7002-7009 diver (0 instead of 9). It is ISO rated to 150m. The dial code on these normally reads either as: 7002-700X R ~ MOV'T SINGAPORE DIAL JAPAN CASED HONG KONG; or can also read as: 7002 (Daini lightning bolt logo) 700R R
The case-back is a variation of Seikos standard 6-slot screw-type case-back. It is made of stainless steel and has a raised relief stamping of the full sized Seiko tsunami wave in the center. Deeply stamped (looking almost engraved) in a clockwise circular layout around the image of the tsunami wave can be found the following words:
JAPAN A (Daini lightning bolt logo) STAINLESS STEEL SEIKO (the word Seiko is written in larger font) 7002-70_ _ (with the being the case number for the corresponding model)
All first generation 7002 divers have mildly angled (the outer edge is marginally higher than the edge closest to the crystal) 60-click, bi-directional, non-locking bezels, with black-painted aluminum bezel inserts, silver markings and a large recessed round lume dot/pip.
Anyone else into modifying divers? lets start a thread with mods and sources for parts etc...
