SEIKO x WENA Wrist PRO

What happens when Seiko dive watch heritage meets Sony tech? You get an SKX007 Diver with a smart bracelet called, the Seiko x Wena Wrist Pro.



Presented as two variants, Silver and Premium Black, the Wrist Pro offers the best of both world’s – well almost. It has a diver’s bezel, screw-down crown and Seiko LumiBrite hands and markers.



Power comes from a 21 jewel, Seiko Japan Cal. R35 automatic movement which can be viewed through the watch’s exhibition case-back. As a result water-resistance is down to just 5 bar / 50 meters.



BTW, that Sony tech I was talking about is all neatly packed into the Wrist Pro’s integrated bracelet.



The Wrist Pro Silver has a Japanese MSRP 89,880¥ (ex. tax) and is limited to 700 pieces while the Wrist Pro Premium Black has an MSRP of 91,880¥ and is limited to 300 pieces.

Sail across the Atlantic Ocean with the Laco Squad Atlantik with its ocean blue; dive-time scale, minute hand, lollipop seconds indicator and 6 and 12hr markers.



The Atlantik has a 42mm in diameter by 13.5mm thick Stainless steel case which is fitted with a double domed and anti-reflective Sapphire crystal and a screw-down case-back with scorpion relief.



Further diver’s features include: a guarded screw-down crown, a unidirectional rotational diver’s bezel with a ceramic inlay ceramic with luminous dive-time scale and 300m of water-resistance.



The Atalantik gets a matte black dial with combination baton and Arabic numerals brightly glowing SLN, a white minute track and a stealthy black date window at 3 o’clock.



Power comes from a 17 jewel automatic movement, the Laco 24 which is based on an ETA 2824.2 Elaboré grade.



Irrespective of which of the four new Squad Watches you choose, all sport a special case-back with a 3D scorpion motif. I am not sure of the significance of the scorpion but it does look cool!



The Atlantik comes with a 22mm black rubber divers strap or alternatively opt for the Atlantik MB and get a 3-link Stainless steel bracelet with a diver’s safety clasp.



MSRP is 930€ (rubber) / 990€ (steel), so just another 50 euros for the bracelet which is very fair.
