SEIKO PROSPEX AU­TO­MATIC DIVER’S

WatchTime - - PORTFOLIO -

This Ja­panese man­u­fac­turer’s Prospex line in­cludes high­er­priced divers’ watches as well as ex­cel­lent en­try-level mod­els. The clas­sic among them is des­ig­nated as ref­er­ence SRP777K1. It mea­sures 44.3 mm in di­am­e­ter, stays wa­ter­tight to 200 me­ters and – thanks to a hard­ened min­eral glass rather than a sap­phire crys­tal – costs only $495. Like ev­ery Seiko watch, it’s equipped with one of the brand’s own cal­ibers. In this case (no pun in­tended), the move­ment is self-wind­ing Cal­iber 4R36. The highly elas­tic, cor­ru­gated, ure­thane strap stretches to slip over the sleeve of a div­ing suit. Lu­mib­rite lu­mi­nous ma­te­rial, a Seiko de­vel­op­ment, glows with un­com­mon bright­ness.
