This year we’ve got two new additions to the Seiko family of entry and mid-level diver’s replica watches. These are the new-to-the-Prospex line, cushion-cased-shaped dive watches, which for the U.S. market, currently consists of two references: SRP775 and SRP777. Seiko’s entry level dive watches have probably been the first automatic mechanical watch for more future watch enthusiasts than any other type of watch.
The two Seiko Prospex 200m Divers replica watches have 44.3 mm x 14 mm cushion cases, with screw-down crowns and case backs;and both are water resistant to 200 meters.
They’re really replica tool watches in the most exact sense I can think of. Very few people who buy a hammer take into consideration how beautifully it is polished, or whether the color scheme is a good one or an ugly one, or whether or not other people who see you using that hammer are going to be impressed with how much it cost you to buy it, or use it as an aid in imagining the glamorous, exciting life of being a professional hammer-er.Dive watches are as popular as they are because if you want a tool watch, you want a watch that does the job of telling the time, anywhere, anywhen, with no distractions or cute nonsense about aesthetics, and a well-designed tool watch does just that.
One of the places you see a little extra quality in the Seiko Prospex 200m Divers replica watch in particular is in the bracelet, which is noticeably nicer finished than has hitherto been the case in Seiko’s entry level dive watches. The folding clasp is a simple, sturdy affair, but the level of polishing is higher and you get solid end-links. The lugs are pierced, making this Seiko replica watch easier to swap out a strap for a bracelet and vice-versa. Properly sized, even with a bracelet, these are really comfortable watches to wear, thanks to the close fit of the case to the wrist, and despite the 44.4 mm x 14 mm dimensions.
The two Seiko Prospex 200m Divers replica watches are obviously designed to take a beating, and they are also obviously designed to either last basically indefinitely, or be painless to replace, depending on how hard you are on them.
