Introducing the Seiko SPB077 and SPB079 Divers

Postby Racer-X » June 27th 2018, 9:39pm

"Two of Seiko’s hottest new dive watch releases for 2018 are inspired by a dive watch the company made in 1968 but in contemporary form.

The first, Prospex SPB077 is in stainless steel with a black bezel, black dial, and steel bracelet with a super hard coating designed to resist scratches. The second, Prospex SPB079 is in stainless steel with a blue bezel and a black rubber accordion strap."

The SPB077 would be good, if it was 2-3 (ideally 4) mm smaller. The lugs appear to be fairly long, so the lug-to-lug distance is not going to be small.

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
