"Hey Nick - you've sold your soul to SEIKO!" said a subscriber the other day.
Should I be ashamed?
Check this out: SEIKO's simple and clever solution to improving
under-water timing legibility by using two different luminescent paints.
The hour markers are painted in blue, while the minute hand and bezel
pearl are green making it super easy for the diver to read the lapsed
minutes on the bezel. Green hand, green dot. And as an added bonus: the
seconds hand tail is also pained in green!
How cool and simple is this. And why has no one else thought of this (in Switzerland?)
Still not impressed? How about 3 different in-built timers? Standard chrono, laps time and 'two runners' time?
A clever power reserve indicator? Yes, included.
And this will blow you away: just 2 minutes of sun exposure is enough to
power the watch for 24 hours. Or, if you charge it for 5 hours, it
would run for 6 months!
Seiko PADI SSC795J1 "SPECIAL EDITION" is a TRUE tool watch for professional divers. Made in Japan. Solar powered, super accurate.
Shouldn't you sell your soul to SEIKO too?
NOTE: the blue and green lume glows in the dark only. Under normal
light, the dial and all the hands look neutral. Also, the pushers are
proper screw-lock, for 200m rating.
