SEIKO SBEX001 Limited Edition Prospex Divers Watch
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.
