Seiko Prospex Samurai watches represent some of the most exquisite luxury timepieces ever made. Since being founded in 2004, Seiko continues to contribute to modern society with new one innovative product after another beginning with the first mechanical watch manufactured in 1913. Then, as now, Seiko is also the official timekeeper in many international sports events, including the Olympic Games. Seiko continues to be privileged to participate in moments of great excitement with spectators and athletes around the world.
The watches have been designed for independent and diversified activities such as climbing, swimming, martial arts, kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, white water rafting, sailing and so on. They are water resistant to up to two hundred twenty feet, and provide accurate timekeeping to meet any demanding situation. In addition, the Samurai watches can be worn as dress watches or with casual clothes for everyday use.
A distinctive feature of the Seiko Prospex Samurai watches is its "Samurai" trademark dial. This is a combination of the words "samura" and "watch" combined. What makes the dial distinctive is that it uses a smaller version of the traditional large seconds, hour and minute hand. This allows the watch to have a larger LCD display that provides greater accuracy than the old style big minute and hour hands. In addition, the Samurai is water resistant to 200m, which makes it useful as a diving watch as well.
A quick look at the functionality of the Seiko Prospex Samurai diver's watch reveals that the hand-winding mechanism consists of a push button with a second wheel beneath it. The bezel is thick and wide and the inner case is made of seahorse skin, which is said to be extremely tough and resistant to corrosion. This watch features a stainless steel bracelet and the back have engravings of the original Japanese phrase, "samurai" and" astronomer".
A nice thing about the Samurai is that the bezel does not go all the way around the dial. It only touches the edge where the date and the time are located. If you like the way the Samurai looks on paper, you will surely like the way it looks when it is worn. With its striking blue dial and stainless steel bracelet, you can't help but notice the beauty of this watch. For a little over one hundred dollars, you can now own one of these great looking men's watches without having to go broke.
