Seiko recently expanded its Prospex diving watch collection with the SBEP, a solar-powered and digital variant. Available in five colorways, the 50mm watch is water resistant up to 20 bar and has a rotating bezel, a world time function and a dual time mode.
Seiko’s SRP aka Baby Tuna watches are “babies” only in the sense that they’re a tier below the SBN Tuna diver’s watch. But it’s still an imposing pro-grade 50mm watch. The SRP641 is on Massdrop for a limited time for just $230, but Amazon is just a few bucks more.
Originally released in the ’80s, this diving watch features designer Giorgetto Giugiaro’s trademark asymmetrical strap placement and a case grip to make it easier to rotate the bezel underwater. Available with a silver- or gold-coated case, each limited to 2,000 pieces.
We’ve seen all manner of Rube Goldberg machines over the years, but never one as precise as this one from Seiko, that uses some 1200 watch parts and watchmaking tools in its design. It required a little human assist along the way, but it’s still pretty awesome.
Released in 1983, the Spirit was designed by car designer Giorgetto Giugiaro, the same man who designed the DeLorean DMC-12, the VW Golf, Lotus Esprit and more. The watch has large timer and lap buttons for easy operation while driving, was worn by Ripley in Aliens.
