The reference 6217-8001 "62MAS"was introduced in 1965 as the first professional diver watch produced from the company. The nickname 62MAS comes from the first two digits of the reference number, and MAS comes from auto"MA"tic "S"elfdater. The main design of the 62-MAS is for high legibility featuring its large rectangular lumes with applied chrome borders and the quick-set date feature which was not a common standard back in the 1960s. This is highly collectible and coveted timepiece in healthy condition and is rich with historical values.
