So what do you think, my European friends, is this to your liking? This is new Seiko Prospex Marinemaster 300 ref. SLA015, based on the SBDX017, Seiko’s entry-level high-end diver – made specifically for the European market.
Personally, I’m not digging it at all – but that’s because I’m not European anymore – I’m British! Okay, I’m kidding, about not being European! I’m sure this looks much better in person but the color is still a little fruity for me.
Its spec. is as the regular Marinemaster 300, so that’s a 44mm Stainless steel case housing a Seiko the 8L35 automatic movement and 300 meters of water-resistance. The dial which is an aquamarine blue has a radial wave-pattern and is complimented by a copper-toned handset.
The new SEIKO Prospex Marinemaster 300 Ref. SLA015 is a Limited Edition of just 200 pieces and is priced 2300€ from selected Seiko retailers in Germany.
