SEIKO Prospex 200m Scuba Diver
Air Diver's 200M Titanium
I seldom buy watches over the internet but this purchase is crucial. Seiko has recently ceased the production the Japan-made 200M Titanium Diver, also known as the "Samurai" in the watch world. In Singapore, I can only find the stainless steel version which is not as "Samurai-y" as her Japan counterpart. Fortunately, I found one on Seiko5ers at a good price - Thank you, Mr. Boris Leung, a respected seller so buy with confidence! The parcel came promptly via EMS from Hong Kong and here was the full suite:
This is my first Titanium watch and I intend to keep her as a collection piece.
Titanium feels real light and takes some getting use to the weight. It also feels warm to the human skin due to the low thermal conductivity. The lacklustre appearance gives her a stealth gun-metal look. Titanium is also highly resistant to corrosion, non-reactive and durable (with the highest strength-to-weight ratio of all metals).
Overall a watch built like a tank to withstand the merciless elements of Nature!
