Default Hands-On With The Seiko Prospex LX SNR029J Divers Watch

Compared to a decade ago, Seiko (and Grand Seiko) achieved to be on the radar of many watch enthusiasts. And where other (Swiss and German) brands used to smirk a bit upon hearing the name Seiko, they now pay close attention.
A great review of a fabulous watch, please enjoy.

And so they should. Those SD Seikos are up there with the best of them.

I found this review honest and well written, it is a stunning watch and I would love to own one. But it is way out of my price range. Superb to read about though, maybe one day...

You know what really grabs you is how Seiko never likes to rest on it's
laurels Gary, and I think this could be one of the many things that has
to be getting the attention of the other brands. Because they never
really stop, and never stop pushing the limits watchmaking wise.

It could be a design, or a material, or ground breaking movement,
or even classic, or cutting edge idea. ..Honestly, just the polishing
method on these stunners above is terrific when you think about it !

Can't get enough of Seiko, or this beauty sir. Thanks so much for
finding this for us !!!
