srp577k

Here’s another Prospex model that was released recently. This one is powered by the 7S35 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.

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.

This watch is powered by the new 4R35 movement which comes with stop second and hand wind features. The special thing about this watch is that it is equipped with a magnifying glass that can be flipped open.

Let’s take a look.
