Seiko Divers

What's your favourite modern Seiko Diver? The Seiko's I wear always seem to surprise the "non-watch people" the most with comments like "oh, that's a Seiko" I guess they only think there's one company who makes a Diver's watch! (Mentioning no names of course). Would love to know your views and experiences?

Cheers

My favorite modern Seiko divers come from the Prospex LX collection. I've had my SNR045 for about 9 months and it's definitely received attention here and there. It's kinda hard not to notice it when it looks like this:

Even so, when I'm asked about it and I tell them it's a Seiko, I almost always get one of two responses. They're either expecting me to say it's some other brand and are surprised to hear that it's a Seiko or they respond with, "What's a Seiko?"

It's kind of humbling to be reminded of the bubble we watch enthusiasts live in from time to time.

I've had exactly one person recognize it for what it was and he was really excited to see a spring drive in person for the first time. That was a neat experience.

Wow, look at that! That's also another great thing about Seiko, you always see something you've never seen before! 馃槈

Asking folks here what they think about anything from Seiko is like asking them if they like oxygen.

Prospex LX snr043 - Ti, DLC, spring drive, 300m, and best lume of any watch in existence. Midnight ocean colorway. Totally safe to wear for any activity as spring drive is way more tough than a regular mechanical movement. Nobody will know it鈥檚 a pricey watch either!
