Knight In Armour

SEIKO White Knight 200m Diver's
Caliber 7S26-01X0 Twenty-one jewels

Similar to what I have gone through before finally pulling the trigger on the Black Monster, the White Knight is no less another dilemma. The mental challenge to overcome is the unconventional lugs of this diver. Unless you purchase the original Seiko stainless steel bracelet or the stock rubber, there is no way an off-market leather or rubber strap will fit those lugs.

What could not be resisted in the beautiful silvery-white textured inner dial with red-tip second hand and red wordings "DIVER'S 200m". The steel bezel with black numberings adds a neat dressy touch to the rugged diver. And did I mention the crystal is dome-shaped?

This is a "business suit" diver with the polished middle bracelet links. Pair her with the rubber strap (easily purchased from Seiko service centre) and it is your casual "Saturday" diver.
