New for 2017 Seiko created the Prospex Land and Air range to compliment their Dive range. The dial is black with high contrast white numerals and indices with the added feature of the compass on the inner rotating bezel. Pointing the watch towards the sun you can use it to navigate on your adventures.
The 42mm case is made of Stainless Steel and has 100m water resistance even though the 2 crowns do not screw-down, which is some achievement. The exhibition case back lets you view the 4R35B movement, strong and accurate it beats at 21,600 BPH with a 41-hour power reserve. The crystal is the trusted Hardlex which is AR coated. The Sword hands, numerals and indices are all coated in Seiko Lumibrite.
Points of Mention
This watch is sold with its original Seiko box and original Seiko paperwork including its signed guarantee card stating date of purchase August 2017. The watch is pre-owned and does have markings to the left side of the case as photographed, beyond that it is in great condition.
This Seiko offers a great explorer and pilots styled watch for very little money, these have also become collectable in the past year and I suspect that won’t stop anytime soon! Also, it is nice when a Seiko has a nice feeling leather strap!
