Many of the value propositions in Seiko watches exist because this fully vertically integrated Japanese company can produce its own in-house mechanical movements on the cheap. However, Seiko also manufactures some pretty awesome quartz watches, including the solar-powered Prospex PADI diver.
Powered by the cal. V157 quartz movement, the PADI special edition features a 47mm case, Hardlex mineral crystal, date display, Lumibright-coated hands and markers, and a unidirectional rotating dive bezel. It’s water-resistant to 200m and features a screw-down crown and case back. Once fully charged, the power reserve on the V157 movement lasts roughly 10 months.
If mechanical watches aren’t your thing, then this PADI special edition could be your ideal vacation watch this summer.
