Seiko presenta una nuova serie di tre orologi subacquei della linea Prospex in edizione limitata, ispirati al misterioso e oscuro mondo del mare di notte e realizzati in una versione completamente nera. I mari tropicali mutano la propria essenza al tramonto, con i colori che virano dal blu cobalto al nero corvino, avvolti nel silenzio della notte. Il fascino mistico di questa atmosfera rende le immersioni notturne un’attività particolarmente ricercata dagli appassionati e amanti del mare. È a questo mondo che sono dedicati i tre nuovi orologi diver di Seiko Prospex nella tonalità total black.
The developments that Seiko it boasts in the field of watchmaking technology today culminate in a diving watch for saturation diving characterized by an all-black case, a dial with red accents and a waterproofness up to 300 meters. Thus was born theSEIKO SLA035J1, a professional diver for saturation dives up to 300 meters. The details of the color of the dial play a practical function: water, by its characteristic, absorbs the highest wavelengths belonging to the spectrum of light, such as red, while reflecting almost entirely the lower frequencies, such as blue and purple. For this reason the ocean takes on the typical blue color.
The absorption of red light increases with depth, making it increasingly difficult to perceive this shade underwater. At a depth of 300 meters the absorption of red light is almost total, objects and organisms of this color become little visible. Since at these immersion levels every decision is fundamental and must be instantaneous, the second hand and the red 300m indication disappear into the depths, allowing readability to be concentrated on the necessary information alone.
The watch is equipped with sapphire glass with anti-glare treatment on the inner surface, the bezel is made of black ceramic based on zirconium oxide to ensure high legibility and resistance. Red details fade into the depths of the sea but add an aesthetic touch for everyday use.
From the diving watch Prospex Two models are derived from professional diver that combine the practical functions of a wristwatch with waterproofing for air diving. The distinct touch of orange, characteristic of the design of these two timepieces, is an aesthetic detail that adds a touch of style for everyday use. This is how theSEIKO SPB125J1 / SSC761J1, two divers with the iconic case"Sumo" that enclose functionality and aesthetics.
The steel case, with coating IP extra-hard black, features the iconic design, popular with brand enthusiasts with the nickname "SUMO". The orange of the minute hand stands out on the black dial like the light of the divers' torches during night dives, and allows you to read the exact time in dark conditions thanks to the exclusive Lumibrite of Seiko.
Indices are also characterized by Lumibrite of the same orange color. The watches are water resistant up to 200 meters and have a screw crown to ensure the safety of divers by preventing any accidental operation.
