These Seiko SilverWave Ref 2628's are very special watches and extremely hard to get hold of, I had to get hold of this from a watch dealer in Japan. The majority of Seiko fans are not aware of this watch reference (Ref 2628-021L), therefore not only will you impress a vintage watch geek but probably blow away a Seiko fan if they see it!
Seiko introduced the Silver Wave as their first attempt as a Diver Watch in 1961, Seikoholics may be aware of the cousins of this watch the 6217, 6159, 62MAS and 6105. This 2628 is from May 1981, they are seldom seen and therefore not only do I promise it will become a watch you just can't stop wearing (I personally own one too), but it will continue to rise and rise in value over the years. This timepiece comes with it's original Seiko Diver Watch Strap in Black Rubber - "AL09A" (evidence of this can be seen in picture 15), however if you want to put a premium leather strap or NATO on it will look incredible too.
We have replaced the mineral crystal glass so it is now brand new and scratch-free, the stainless steel case is in great condition and so are the dial and hands. The only slight issue is that the Polyurethane Bezel is slightly damaged (next to where is connects to the crystal by the), it is not structurally an issue as the damage is minimal.
The watch uses a 2 Jewel Cal. 2628A hacking quartz movement, it is in full working order and keeping accurate time with a brand new premium swiss made battery installed. The watch is keeping accurate time and the date window and subdial is also working perfectly.
