Alright, since there seems to be other interest in a "photo encyclopedia" for seiko, particulary divers, lets get the 7002 series started.
First up is a 1990
7002-7009 I do not know full production run on this, but this model seems to have replaced the 6309 series of basic 150m divers until the 007/173's came along. It is most similar to the 6309-729x, rather than the 7040/7039.

Here is a 7002-7039 from 1994. It is marked "diver's 200". I believe this is the first model in the change from 150m to 200m in the basic diver series. I have seen them with rubber and black bezels. this is my first blue/red bezel diver. I am partial to the black. but... a reasonable buy it now price on ebay, a seiko stamped ss band (not double clasp though, not sure if a diver really came with it), and a darn near pristine bezel, case, and crystal (must have been a desk driver), with very clean dial made this one I did not want to pass up.

For those that thought the skx171 was a departure in the basic diver style, here is a 7002-7020 from 1995. I have never seen a 6309 with this style integral bezel without insert and can only surmise it is the direct ancestor of the 171.

for example, I have seen some of you post a beautiful
7002-7000 150m
7002-7001 (is this the japan only model like the 6306-7001 was to the 6309's?)
7002-700a 150m
this thread will give us a great reference! also, I will have one started soon on 6309's. just need to get the photos together.

I have 3 7002 divers (well, 2 of them are divers, and the last one is more like a Seiko 5 "diver-style" watch).

Seiko 7002-7000 diver
The dial says "WATER 150m RESIST"
The small print on the bottom of the dial says "7002 ~700R R" (~ is the lightning symbol)
SN 610277 (January 1996)



Seiko 7002-7039 diver
The dial says "DIVER'S 200m" (like the current model SKX007)
The small print on the bottom of the dial says "7002-703X R 2 MOV'T SINGAPORE CASED HONG KONG"
SN 640777 (June 1996)
As far as I can tell, there's no physical difference between the 7000 and 7039 cases.



Seiko "5" 7002-7010 diver-style watch
The dial says "WATER 10BAR RESIST" and below that "AUTOMATIC"
The small print on the bottom of the dial says "7002-701R R 2"
SN 006343 (October 1990)
This one is not strictly a diver's watch, as it's rated to only 100m and doesn't have a screw-down crown. It's smaller than a diver -- bezel is 37.5mm in diameter. Strange enough, there's also a tachymeter scale on the outside track of the dial -- this is odd because the watch is not a chronograph.
A bit of news:
I got word from Seiko Japan that the 7002 movement was manufactured from 1988-1996.

I'm still waiting for more info from them. When I get their email, I'll post it to the forum (I hope some time next week).

This is the scan on Jetan's easternwatch.com of the watch I bought from him. Although, someone else said it was a scan of HIS watch ... (Jose obviously didn't take a seperate picture of each NOS one he had for sale -- why would he?)

Mine is from 1995. Lum isn't so great, but I think that's in part because it was pre-LumiBrite. No matter, I LOVE this watch. I changed it over to a Seiko flat vent rubber diver strap.
