Seiko Prospex SBDC029

The Seiko Prospex SBDC029 “Shogun” is a great diving watch. The Prospex line is designed for professionals and this watch is no exception.

This watch wears quite big, it has a diameter of 44mm without crown and measures 50mm lug to lug. The case is made of titanium so it is quite light on the wrist, despite its size! This watch has a water resistance of 200m, and is ISO certified for professional diving. The lumed dial and hands are protected by a hardlex crystal. The Seiko lume is notorious for its quality and it will provide a long lasting glow throughout the night, ensuring legibility at all times.

Inside the Shogun you will find a Seiko 6R15 automatic movement, this is the higher grade Seiko movement: it has better precision (+25/-15spd) and longer power reserve (50h) than the Seiko 4R35.

Overall this watch could be considered as a great Rolex Submariner alternative: offering the same depth rating at a fraction of the price, but in a very different style. This is definitely not an homage as we can clearly see Seiko's own identity in this watch. The case looks sporty, it's larger, thicker and is made of titanium. The crown is at 3 o'clock.

This is a proper tool-watch! It does not have a magnifying glass for the date window. Its price is quite high but it's definitely worth it: this Prospex is built to last!
