This is such a cool picture. I’m so excited for you and this set. It’s something I’m definitely trying to complete, but will def take some time.

How hard were the fathers to acquire?

Picked up a 025 today, what an epic watch
I must stress, rolex ‘shortage’ is what opened my eyes to these alternatives

I just picked up a SLA025 and did just that. Seemed like “part of the set” I suppose. It also just seemed way too nice to part with!

anything they want, but it won't be an anniversary issue. As I mentioned in my SLA033 pictorial:

Let's assume Seiko's adhering to actual original release dates - the 62MAS in '67, the 6215-7000 in '68 and the 6105-8110 in ...the 2nd half of '69 (the first iteration, the 6105-8000, came out ~6~12mths earlier). Thus all three would have been released on their inspirations' 50-year anniversary. That does make a further "re-creation" in 2020 rather tricky, given that the next diver references were released years later. The venerable 6159-7010 Grandfather Tuna came out in 1975 and the 150M 6309-7040/9, in 1976. Therefore, your guess is as good (or better) as mine...
I have no idea if they introduced anything new in 1980 but I couldn't come up with anything for 1970... . In 1990, they released their first computer dive watch (pure digital instrument). The "Arnie" which AFAIK was released in 1982 came out this year...
