Seiko Limited Edition Prospex "Black Series"
Seiko unveils a trio of limited editions with a hard black coating to the case.
In Seiko’s typically understated style, the trio of Prospex models were discreetly presented over the Christmas break and within days social media was awash with people looking to pre-order these limited editions. The launch was perhaps even too discreet, since there is not even any indication of the size of the limited edition production run on the special microsite dedicated to these three models.
Prospex SRPC49 Seiko
The most sought-after model will undoubtedly be the SRPC49, a blacked-out version of Seiko’s iconic “Tuna” model, with its distinctive case shape and crown at 4 o’clock. It comes with the typical diver’s watch features of screw-in crown, screw-in case base, unidirectional rotating bezel, plus Seiko’s Calibre 4R36 self-winding movement, which has a power reserve of 41 hours.
Prospex SNE493 Seiko
The trio is completed by two solar models, one in three-hand guise (SNE493) and the other a chronograph (SSC673), which offer an impressive 10-month power reserve when fully charged. All three models match the black-coated case with a black turning bezel and black dial, with beige luminescent dots to mark the hours and an orange arrow-head minutes hand. They are all water resistant to 200 metres.
Prospex SSC673 Seiko
