SEIKO Prospex Professional 1000M SBEX005

This beautiful Seiko Diver is the new Prospex Professional 1000M Automatic Ref. SBEX005, possibly made only for the Japanese domestic market.

Its case is made from Titanium with a Dia-Shield coating, a plasma coating similar to Citizen’s Dura-Tec so it’s super tough and scratch-resistant. It is fitted with: a screwdown crown and caseback, a Sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on its inside and a unidirectional rotational divers bezel with a blue inlay.

Special divers features include: 1000m water-resistance suitable for saturation diving, reinforced magnetic-resistance and a full Dia-Shield coated Titanium bracelet with a double-locking divers clasp with push button release and divers extension.

Dimensions of the case are as follows: 48.2mm x 19.7mm x 53.35mm lug-to-lug. Its dial is in a beautiful blue with a traditional Japanese wave-pattern and is fitted with Seiko Lumibright applied hands and markers.

Power comes from a Japanese Seiko in-house caliber 8L55 automatic movement with: a manual winding mechanism, stop second hand function, 37 jewels and an accuracy of -15 to +25 seconds per day. Its functions include: hours, minutes, central sweeping-seconds and date.

It retails for 650,000¥ exe. VAT, the equivalent of 6,320USD.
