Seiko Marinemaster 8L35 SBDX003 2000 Historical Collection 44mm 300m Limited 500Seiko
For auction is an exceptional year 2000 Seiko Marinemaster Historical Collection SBDX003 500 pieces limited 8L35 automatic full set 44mm. This barely worn piece spent much of its life in a box, the original rubber strap actually broke due to age as it had dried out (the original broken strap is included with the watch). This piece really kicked off the ascendance that Seiko has been on for 20+ years. The Marinemaster with 8L35 has been such an important model that it continues forward for Seiko with only minimal changes; it is still fundamentally the same watch unchanged. This particular version is arguably the best of them all, minimalist and an excellent homage to the early Seiko divers with the gold hands and writing.
