These Seiko Silver Wave Ref 2628's are special enough in their own right and do not deserve the common misconception of being called Bell and Ross homage watches. Why? Because this Seiko 2628 came out in 1981, Bell and Ross on the other hand were not founded until 1992. So it is clear which direction the inspiration came from.
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. These 2628's 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.
It has a thick grey handmade strap made from 100% genuine leather obtained from Pittards in Somerset (UK), it is specifically tailored to this watch with lovely with contrast light blue stitching. It feels great, will age gorgeously and will mould perfectly to your wrist!
The watch uses a small 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.
