THE SEA FIGHTER IS NOW SOLD OUT. THIS MODEL HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED.Based on a dive watch issued to German combat divers in the 1970s the Sea Fighter preserves the original’s key utilitarian design cues while removing the 70s styling. The Sea Fighter’s case design has been distilled in keeping with a purposeful design. In addition we re-proportioned the bezel and case body to bring the watch into better visual balance. We upgraded the strap attachment to solid steel screw pins for extra strength and security, the crystal to sapphire glass, and the movement from a tractor to a finely decorated representation of its accuracy and quality.First released in 2008 the Sea Fighter represented everything we wanted our custom Seikos to be but could not squeeze out of the venerable Seikos. The Sea Fighter features a more serviceable but equally water resistant screw in case tube, Swiss movement that is more accurate and easier to regulate, and the security and versatility of a screw-pin strap attachment. Finally, almost four years after its launch, the Sea Fighter is going to be retired for a re-think and re-design that will involve a prolonged gestation. At the moment I am planning a radical departure from the Sea Fighter as you know as Mk II continues its own evolution.

For the last 50 Sea Fighters in the series we present two variations that we feel are the best incarnations of this timeless case design:

BUND I date: For the most famous variation we incorporated the most popular features that were only available to our custom Sea Fighter customers before now. This version features a black background date wheel and beadblasted finish. The DLC version is our redux of a quartz version of this design that was never manufactured with a mechanical movement.

Plongeur Day/date: Our own original hybrid. Featuring the case and color scheme of the watch originally issued to German combat divers combined with our version of the classic PloProf 600 dial and handset. The oversized orange minute hand were hallmarks of both watches, which is perhaps why this hybrid seems so natural.
