SEIKO Prospex Diver Scuba LE by Giugiaro Design SBEE00E

Here’s another one of those Seiko Scuba Divers by GIUGIARO Design with a black honeycomb dial. When I first posted these, I thought they were pretty cool – well at least fun. However most of you were unimpressed.

Now that I’ve seen this one from a few more angles, I’d have to agree – it seems to have been hit hard by every single branch on its way down as it fell out of the ugly tree.

Its case is made from Stainless steel and plastic like any good Propsex Diver; however its shrouding has been given a knobbly Lego-like surface.

It measures 43.8mm in diameter with a lug-lug measurement of 48mm and a height of 11.2mm – and is fitted with a domed Sapphire crystal, a diver’s bezels and screw-down crown and case-back with its engraved LE number.

Further divers features include: anti-magnetic resistance, water-resistance to 200 meters and hands and markers with Seiko LumiBrite.

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

The Scuba LE by Giugiaro Design SBEE00E has a Japanese retail price of 45,000¥ +TAX. So what do you think an acquired taste or downright f’ugly?
