One to watch out for

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion - With Des­mond Eddy

SINCE the launch of the first diver's watch, Seiko has brought a stream of new tech­nolo­gies and de­signs that have made div­ing safer and eas­ier for the pro­fes­sional and recre­ational divers.

Th­ese in­no­va­tions in­clude the world's first ti­ta­nium diver's watch in 1975, the first diver's watch with a ce­ramic outer case in 1986 and the first Nitrox Dive Com­puter watch in 2000.

The launch of the new lim­ited edi­tion Astron GPS So­lar cal­i­bre has a defin­ing char­ac­ter­is­tic in its dark mother-of-pearl dial.

The GPS So­lar mod­ule re­quires lit­tle power and ob­tains all its en­ergy from light ab­sorbed through the dial.

The case and bracelet are made of ti­ta­nium with a new su­per-hard black coat­ing that is re­sis­tant to scratches and pre­serves the watch for as long as it is worn.

Cal­i­bre 8X22 is al­ready avail­able in a se­ries of three de­signs which are all ti­ta­nium-cased, while two Prospex PADI spe­cial edi­tions will be re­leased this July.
