    1988 Quartz watches

    Where there any quartz Seiko dive watches made being made in 1988?

    I know the 6309 and the 7002 were produced in '88 but both of those are mechanical. I am looking for a watch to fill two spots in my collection a grab and go and birth year watch.

    Edit: Are there any other companies that produced quartz dive watches that could be easily dated to 1988 preferable in the 39-40mm size range?

    Double edit: What models of quartz chronographs in Seiko produce in 1988?

    I don't know about Seiko, but didn't TAG make an awesome dive watch in 38mm back then? The one from The Living Daylights? I've seen them for sale for a couple hundred bucks before. Almost bought one since that's my favorite Bond movie, but the size kept me away.




    Edit: Yikes, I guess prices have gone up.

    I like the 1000 series but I have no idea if you can date them to a certain year.

    Someone on another forum also suggested the Seiko 7A28/38/48 chronographs.
