Seiko Prospex LX Event
Six watches altogether, compensate for this new Seiko Prospex LX assortment, where LX represents ‘light’. This can be deciphered in an unexpected way, as the watches are made of the light-weight titanium yet additionally due to the light that thinks about so perfectly the Zaratsu cleaned surfaces. Zaratsu, incidentally, starts from the Swiss made cleaning machines by Gebr. Sallaz. The name Sallaz peruses somewhat extraordinary in the Japanese language, so it was articulated ‘zaratsu’. Presently you know.
We welcomed around 30 of our perusers to go along with us for the presentation of the Seiko Prospex LX assortment in the Seiko Boutique in Amsterdam. In the as of late remodeled store (presently with a huge determination of Grand Seiko watches), all the visitors were welcomed with a mixed drink and some bites.

Paul Daniels, leader of the Seiko The Netherlands, along with Martine Meijer, Marketing Manager, alongside the shop staff, were available to welcome all visitors. Martine Meijer commenced with a presentation of the new Prospex LX assortment and alluded to the long history of expert Seiko plunging watches.
Seiko Netherlands confided in me (enough) to give an introduction on the Prospex LX models, individually. Three new models address ocean, land and sky. The jumpers watch (300m) is their SNR029J1 ( that we previously looked into here ), the land rendition is their SNR025J1 and comes with a compass scale bezel and the watch for use by pilots (and the individuals who travel to various time regions) is the SNR033J1. At that point, similar watches are accessible in a “all black” release also (SNR027J1 for the land model, SNR031J1 for the jumpers watch and SNR035J1 for the GMT).
I momentarily discussed the fashioner of these new Prospex LX looks too, Ken Okuyama, who likewise has been in the plan group for the Porsche 911 (996) and a few Ferrari’s (456M, Enzo and California), for instance. I expounded on a portion of the plan decisions that Okuyama made, for example, the new point of the zaratsu cleaned case band, yet in addition about the thickness of the watch.
Each watch has its own particular ‘professional’ reason, that’s why they have a place with the Seiko Prospex (“Professional Specifications”) assortment. Two of these references (so 4 altogether) come with a GMT capacity and accordingly have been outfitted with the Spring Drive type 5R66 development. The models with time-just sign have Spring Drive type 5R65. These developments offer 72 hours of force hold and have a precision of +-1-second deviation each day all things considered. We will do an appropriate survey on different models also soon, here on Fratello, to impart all subtleties and our musings to you.
According to the vast majority of the visitors of this Fratello X Seiko Prospex LX event, the titanium jumper was top pick, trailed by the GMT. Costs of these watches start at €5100. That’s a value point that you may need to become accustomed to for the Seiko Prospex assortment, however these watches are not kidding competition for a portion of the set up “professional” looks out there from the notable Swiss brands who work in this segment.
