This time round I handled the new limited edition Seiko Prospex diver that is designated for Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Macau and Brunei markets. It is limited to 300 pieces and comes on a metal bracelet and an additional silicone strap. It has a dolphin grey dial and a blue bezel which is a perfect colour combo in my opinion. The dial is mildly textured and the crown is signed with the Prospex “X” logo.
The watch comes with a free gift which is a USB powered desktop speaker. It is shaped like an oxygen tank and bears the Prospex name (see last two pictures below).
Below are some of my thoughts on this piece.
Colour – Good choice of colours. Blue bezel matches very well with the grey dial.
Dial – Nice grey dial. The texture looks like brain patterns though.
Lume – Good lume on the dial as usual. I also notice that the 5,10,15 and 20 minute markings on the bezel are lumed as well. Not sure if this feature applies to all the recently released MM300 models or just this model alone though. Refer to lume shot below.
Limited Edition – 300 pieces is a bit conservative. I think they can do 500 pieces or more with this colour combo. Although it is designated for Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Macau and Brunei, buyers could come from other parts of the world as well.
Free Gift – The speaker looks like a low cost electronic item that is given away free at IT shows. A good spring bar tool would be more useful since the watch comes with a additional silicone strap.
