SEIKO Prospex LX LINE Ltd Ed DIVERS [with cermet]

Seiko’s new flagship sports line, the LX Line has a couple of nice looking new models.

The new additions include: SBDB035 with its DiaShield coated case and bracelet. This gets a reddish-gold toned dial and cermet bezel.

This has a Japanese MSRP of 680,000 JPY+TAX and is a Limited Edition of 200 pieces as indicated by the engraving on its case-back.

Next up is SBDB037 with its black DiaShield coated case and black rubber diver’s strap. This gets an equally lovely dial cermet bezel in a dark greenish-silver tone.

This has a Japanese MSRP with 680,000 JPY+TAX; like its partner in crime it is also a numbered and engraved Limited Edition of 200 pieces.

Both models are powered by Seiko Spring Drive Spring Caliber 5R65 automatic movements with an expected accuracy of ±15 seconds per month (average) (±1 second per day) and a power-reserve of 72hrs.

Like any Spring Drive their dials possess power-res. indictors. In addition both watches get luxurious gold sweep seconds hands in either red or yellow gold respectively.

What else can I tell you? That’s right – diver’s features anti-magnetic resistance, Sapphire crystals, 300 meters of WR and cermet diver’s bezels, a composite material composed of ceramic (cer) and metal (met) materials.

Thoughts? A good looking duo; my personal pref. would be SBDB035. How bout’ you?
