That is assuming of course that all of these would be available at your friendly neighbourhood Seiko A.D.
Do you want a 7548 Quartz?
Or perhaps we can interest you with something in an auto with this nice, newly designed 6309 diver?
Maybe you are near a military PX and they can even offer you the "Japan" version of the 6309-7290:
One quartz with round indices and one auto with rectangular indices:
I was 11-12 when such a decision would have been made. At that time I would have gone for either the black or orange 7548. Now if I had to pick only one the 6309-729B would be my first choice by a landslide!
What is very interesting is how similar the 7548s are to today's SKX divers!
This is true with the SKX007K:
And the SKX011K which has a different shade of orange than the SKX011J and very similar to its 7548 counterpart:
Which would you have bought back then?
