Seiko Watches celebrates making quality Divers watches for 50 years in 2015.
To mark this awesome achievement they have build the SBEX001 Marinemaster Professional Divers Watch. A true limited edition with only 700 units produced Worldwide. A unique watch rated to 1000m ! The facinating video shows that it will perform well beyond that depth.
The case is in titanium with a "Super-hard coating" to render this lightweight and rather sensitive metal more resistant to scratches and dings. The case is Seiko's one-piece case structure. It is 48.2mm wide and a hefty 19.7mm thick – as always, though, when it comes to watches with short lugs and clever bracelet integration, wearability remains great even on a smaller wrist. The case also affords the movement some anti-magnetic protection.
The Caliber 8L55 runs at 36,000 vibrations per hour or 10 beats per second. That is a seldom seen feat that, all other factors being equal, should provide greater timekeeping accuracy.
Power reserve is 55 hours, 2 plus days from a hi-beat movement .
Limited to just 700 pieces, the Seiko Marinemaster Professional 1,000M Diver’s Hi-Beat Limited Edition SBEX001 will retail in Australia for $11,000.
