A big highlight in the Seiko Prospex range are the Marinemaster Professional watches, which are both water resistant to a hundred meters (inches) and powered either by quartz or mechanical high-performance calibers. Because of the movement's precision and quality and its superb workmanship, prices for even a limited edition Prospex Marinemaster Professional gold watch are around 2,500 Euros. Of course, this is highly value-priced for what you get, with superb features and an unrivaled depth of character that put it right alongside Seiko's other Masterpiece watches. For a big, luxurious family, such a watch would be just perfect.
The main features are also very impressive for such a limited edition: The mineral crystals of the dial have been laser cut to give them that round, radiant look and the hands are embossed to give a striking contrast. The hands feature blue and green engravings that mirror those of the case, giving the Prospex marine masters a two-toned look that is also characteristic of the brand. Next to the gold and stainless steel bracelet that comes on each model, the dial is the next best thing in terms of complexity and design. Constructed from eighteen karat gold, the Prospex dial is also eighteen minutes and twelve seconds per second, giving it a precision that is second to none in its class. In addition, due to its water-resistance ability, the Prospex also features an anti-reflective coating to further add to its water-resistance properties and to further help it remain durable and safe from damage.
Another great feature of the Prospex is that apart from its unending precision as a timepiece, it also has a great white dial. A great white dial can really make a difference when you are out looking at the sea or at the beach, because not everyone wants to stare at a red or yellow dial on a watch that is swimming on a dark ocean floor. While the bezel is a circular blue dial, it is encased in a beautiful sapphire crystal that protects it against any damage. At six and a half inches by six and a half inches, the bezel on the Prospex was slightly larger than the actual watch let alone the extra large gold and stainless steel bands that accompanied it.
The Seiko prospex range is great for people who want to have fun with a big bold statement. While the basic models will set you back just over one hundred dollars, there are some models that are priced as low as under forty dollars which will go down well with younger consumers looking for a watch with a bold statement but with a reliable function for everyday use. Regardless of what your budget is, the Seiko prospex range has something that will suit you and your pocket. With styles ranging from the casual and understated to the edgy and over the top, it really does have something for everyone. The fact that they are offered in many different price ranges along with being offered in a wide variety of models means that it should not be too difficult to find a watch that will suit your tastes and your budget.
While the bezel on the Seiko Prospex might be a little flashy, it is protected by a thin, but incredibly strong band. The band on the Prospex is designed to be comfortable and resistant to scratching and scuffing. They also offer a choice of two dials, the first being a sporty type of dial which offers a huge date window on a bright blue dial. It also has another smaller dial offering a chronograph style for those who wish to mix things up a bit.
For a brand that is relatively new, it certainly seems that the Seiko Prospex is here to stay. They have an appealing look which has been well received by consumers and they provide a vast price range with many options which means that they should fit any need or style. These watches are available in a wide price range, which makes them very competitive, especially when you take into consideration that they are one of the few quartz movement watches which are solar powered.
