New Seiko 'Black Series' Prospex Limited Edition Divers

Post by AtomicTom » Fri Dec 29, 2017 8:55 am

Did everyone already check out these three new Seiko 'Black Series'
Prospex Limited Edition Divers?

Inspired by night diving, and having high legibility these new divers have
either a PVD, or DLC, 'black hard coated' finish, black dials with tan markers,
white, and orange hands, Lumibrite, and uni-directional rotating bezels guys.

The models include the Prospex Diver Automatic SRPC49K1 'Black Turtle'
with it's 45mm case, 200m WR, and Seiko 4R36 automatic. Along with Prospex
Solar Diver SNE493P1, and Solar Diver Chronograph SSC673P1, both with
43.5mm cases, 200m WR, V157 Solar movements, and cool rubber straps.

Some pictures for you...

Lume is way too orange, but other than that the NAFT looks spectacular.

The NAFT was discussed earlier. Better pics in that thread, too.

I thought I'd be in minority but I like that NAFT as is.
Will be a fun summer watch

Love it. Hands could match the markers better, but not a deal breaker for me.

These look cool, especially the Chrono. That being said I happened to see the gold plated NAFT at Macy's. That was just horrible looking.

Very nice, Andy. It looks much better in real life.
