In recent years, Seiko has finally realized a rich archive of its own diver’s system and seems to be developing actively. In 2015, Seiko organized a massive large-scale Line-up Prospex series. Model Seiko SBBN013 became a discontinued version, and it became the new Seiko SBBN025.
The main changes are the shape of the index, the brightness, the material of the band (urethane – silicon), the brand logo change (crown design), the needle shape, and so on.
True watchmakers whether on the land, sea, or in the sky, present the greatest challenges of all. Since making its first diving watch in 1965, Seiko has been exceeding the expectations of those, whose sports require watches with truly professional specifications. Seiko Prospex brings together all of Seiko’s sports watch expertise into one collection.
Seiko spearheaded a few components in dive watches, that are currently generally acknowledged as setting the worldwide standard. Including the “accordion” or creased style strap, the wide bolt molded hands for additional accuracy, and the two-piece case development for included security. Essentially, in flying watches, Seiko developed the trigonometric slide decision that permits pilots to make complex figures in flight.
I’ve had mine since summer of 2008 and am still on my original battery. My band rotted out about six months ago (which is normal) and I now use a Nato strap from Martac. I never take the watch off so, its kind of beat up. However, there are no scratch marks on my crystal. The crystal is sunk in a little below the bezel and this protects it.

Easiest watch to see and read the time I own by far, watch is about the size of a normal sized Casio G shock. Luminous hands, number markings work well for about 7 hours after exposed to light. This is a very solid, well built watch and not very heavy due to titanium case, obvious great dive watch and great knock around everyday wearer watch. Lock down stem and rotating bezel work well, could not ask for much more, thank you Seiko.
