Seiko Diver Watches
Seiko has a long history of making diver’s watches. It all began with a request letter from a diver in Hiroshima who longed for a watch that could withstand the pressures of underwater work. Answering the call, Seiko produced Japan’s first diver’s watch and had emerged successfully after the 8th Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition. Today, Seiko’s years of honing its mastery in making diver’s watches is reflected in the quality of its recent offerings, particularly in its Prospex product lineup.Seiko Automatic Diver Watches
The first Seiko diver’s watches were all automatic, with a self-winding mechanism that remained accurate even in the depths of the ocean. A recent example is the SKX009K2 Seiko mechanical diver watch with a caliber 7S26 and water resistance for up to 200 meters. It has a durable steel band with easy open clasp but an accordion-style rubber strap can also be used which expands and contracts according to the present depth. The SRP773 Prospex Turtle is an entry-level diver watch with an updated movement compared to its predecessor. Its incredible luminosity and durability make it an ideal first timer’s watch to take to the depths.Seiko Digital Diver Watches
The year 1990 saw the world’s first digital computerised diver’s watch with the M-725 Seiko Scuba master watch. This rare timepiece is water resistant for up to 200 metres, has a depth sensor and diving time counter. A newer model is the STN009 Seiko diving computer watch that has electro-luminescence back lighting and can display depth, full decompression data and battery power indicator.Seiko Analogue Diver Watches
The classic diver’s watch is always analogue. Easy to read, simple to power and extremely reliable, there’s a reason why the world still priotises analogue. The Seiko Prospex diver watch lineup has gems like the SSC664PI, a stylish chronograph that looks smart in and out of the water because of its tasteful silver body and luxurious golden accents. The SRPB55K1 is a new take on the classic design with a textured watch face, black and gold rotating bezel and gold outline within the glowing indicators.
