SEIKO PYH018 7549-7000 JDM a true 150m diver's watch with quartz accuracy and dependability whose styling legacy is carried on by the SEIKO 7S26 200m SXK007/9 SCUBA DIVER's.

Released 1978, a time where quartz movements were state-of-the-art, the 7548 shares many parts with the mechanical 6309 movement which was used in the Turtle. You can exchange parts between this movements. In fact, the 7548 is a 6309 with a quartz section. It’s a high reliable movement, containing almost no plastic parts, 5 jewels and a trimming screw to adjust the speed. A high end movement in it’s time and until today one of the best quartz movements ever.

There are the typical black and Pepsi versions, an orange version and even an extremely rare green version.
