Seiko Prospex Landmonster – SRP577K

srp577k

Here’s another Prospex model that was released recently. This one is powered by the 4R35 movement (date only) and comes with a compass bezel (non-click). It is not exactly a new model as it was released earlier under the Superior line with a different dial design (See link at the bottom of this post).

For the Prospex model, the date window shows five continuous dates instead of one. The hour markers are represented by minute numerals (05,10…etc) instead of the usual 1,2,3 or straight bars. The case design looks very much like the Monster in my previous post but it is actually a bigger watch with a 44mm diameter.

Here are some pictures of the SRP577K.

The Seiko Monster is probably the Seiko watch with the most number of variants and has been feature many times on this blog. As we know, the regular Monsters come under the Superior line and are powered by the 4R36 movement. This time round, Seiko decided to release new variants under the Prospex line. These variants are not much different from the Superior ones except they had the Prospex logo on the dial and caseback.

Here are some photos of the SRP581K.

This time round I check out the new Prospex Solar Chronograph, SSC261P. This watch is pretty big and thick. The case structure is quite similar to the sawtooth with the watch module enclosed in an outer case. It is powered by the V175 solar chronograph movement and is fitted with a slide rule bezel that rotates smoothly (non-clicking).

Here is a quick photo review.

Cellphone Pictures the SBGW047

Saw the SBGW047 at Big Time recently. This watch was released last year in conjunction with Seiko’s 100 Years of Watchmaking celebration. It is a remake of the 44GS from 1967 using the modern 9S64 movement. Only 700 pieces were produced and I believe it is hard to find today.

Here are some cellphone shots.
