SEIKO Prospex Diver Scuba Limited Edition by GIUGIARO DESIGN

These two, ever so slightly off-the-wall Prospex Divers come courtesy of the design studios of Italian supercar designer, Giorgetto Giugiaro who is responsible for all sorts of very cool reimagined objects from Nikon camera cases to furniture.

Their wacky-looking cases are made from Stainless steel and plastic like any good Propsex Diver; however their shroudings have been given a funky Lego-like surface that wraps around the entire right hand side of their cases and extends to the left side and down toward the right lugs.

They measures 43.8mm in diameter with a lug-lug measurement of 48mm and a height of 11.2mm. They are fitted with a domed Sapphire crystal, diver’s bezels and screw-down crowns and case-backs with engraved LE numbers.

Further divers features include: anti-magnetic resistance, water-resistance to 200 meters and hands and markers with Seiko LumiBrite. The Blue Edition looks like it might have a DiaShield coating while the Gold Edition has an IP coating.

Powering these two unusual suspects are Seiko Quartz 7N36 calibers which have an accuracy of ±15 seconds per month.

The Seiko Prospex Diver Scuba Limited Edition by Giugiaro Design Ref. SBEE001 & SBEE002 have been produced in limited numbers of 2,000 pieces of each reference.

The Blue version SBEE001 has a Japanese retail price of 45,000¥ +TAX while the Gold Edition is slightly more expensive at 45,000¥ +TAX. Put a smile on your face?:)
