Seiko Marine Master Professional 300M Ref. SBDX023 / SLA021
The attractive successor of the popular MM300 SBDX017, the MM300 SBDX023 / SLA 021, flaunts a massive monobloc case measuring 44.3mm with a height of 15.4mm. This timepiece is powered by a hi-beat caliber 8L35 made with 26 jewels, an undecorated and unadjusted version of the Grand Seiko caliber 9S55. Operating at 28,800 bph with handwinding and hacking features, this movement has a 50 hours of power reserve and an expected accuracy tolerance of -10/+15 seconds per day.
Admire the familiar refined angular lugs of this 300m watch that flaunt a full polish and satin-brush and bestow it with an athletic look. Finished with Seiko’s traditional Zaratsu polish usually only seen on the prestigious Grand Seiko line, the MM300 also flaunts a DiaShield coating on its case and bracelet that enhances scratch protection and corrosion resistance.
Made of zirconia ceramic, the unidirectional bezel insert of this timepiece shows off a lustrous gleam that has never been seen before. Additionally, the triangle at 12 o’clock and applied markers for the first 20 minutes are filled with Seiko’s proprietary Lumibrite luminescence that glows green in the dark. Featuring a signature screw-in crown at 4 o’clock, the MM300 has stayed true to the dial, markers and handset aesthetic on the 6159 while adding its own gold tone seconds hand that matches the “300m” text on its matte black dial.
Be a master of the seas with this timepiece protected by a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on its interior. Feel the cool of the autumn breeze as this satin-brushed stainless-steel bracelet rests comfortably on your wrist. The MM300 also comes with an additional rubber strap for a sportier style should the occasion call for it.
Aristo Navigator 3H59A - Sapphire
Drawing inspiration from German military watches from the 60s, The Aristo Navigator 3H59A flaunts a neat dial designed to offer maximum legibility with a classic German pilot watch Type B configuration against a matte black background. What’s more, its classic Flieger sword-style hands complement the white triangle at 12 o'clock which is flanked by a white dot on each side, a distinct characteristic of the classic pilot theme.
The Aristo Navigator 3H59A is built with an automatic Swiss-made ETA 2824-2 caliber operating at 28,800 bph (4 Hertz) with hacking and handwinding capabilities. This movement has 25 jewels and a power reserve of 40 hours. Peer into the very heart of this watch through its exhibition case back that reveals the intricate workings of the ETA 2824-2. Measuring 43mm in diameter, this timepiece is crafted with a 316L stainless-steel case that boasts a full fine-sandblast finish that mirrors the finishing found on German military equipment in the past.
With a water resistance of 50m and Super-LumiNova in its indexes that glow green in the dark, this watch exudes a sleek purposeful aura that guarantees reliability and functionality. As such, it is apparent that the Aristo Navigator 3H59A asserts a strong wrist presence with its masculine watch case design, large dial opening and slim profile.
The final touch to the vintage theme of this timepiece is a dark mocha riveted leather strap that continues seamlessly from its downward curving lugs that wraps perfectly around the wrist. So, what are you waiting for, navigate life with the Aristo Navigator 3H59A made exclusively for Gnomon Watches with a flat sapphire crystal today!
Yema Superman GMT Black/Gray 39mm
Presenting a vintage-inspired reissue of the famous 1963 diver, the Yema Superman GMT makes a comeback with the addition of a GMT function that allows for dual time readings. Powered by an automatic Swiss-made ETA 2893-2 caliber which has a power reserve of 42 hours and operates at 28,800 bph, this timepiece has a 39mm steel case with straight lugs that keep to the original lug-to-lug distance of 48mm and 13mm thickness.
Faithful to its predecessor, specifically the Ref. 53.00.16 released in 1970, this watch stands out with a locking device located at 3 o’clock between its bezel and screw-down crown where as soon as the time is set and its bezel is rotated to the desired position, the crown then locks the bezel. This ingenious device, never seen before on a Superman timepiece, is simple yet effective to prevent any accidental adjustment of the bezel. The 24-hour format of this two-tone bezel made out of sapphire allows wearers to track up to three time zones.
An ode to the past, its matte black dial and handset flaunt the same “traffic light” styled second hand hour and hour indexes, now updated with silver trimmings. The Yema Superman GMT also shows off a striking red triangle on its GMT hand which makes one revolution a day (24-hour format). All these features have been applied with Super-LumiNova that glows green in the dark which are protected by a high-domed sapphire crystal which graces this tool watch with an alluring retro charm.
Crafted with a solid screwed-in case back, this timepiece comes on an athletic steel bracelet, the exact recreation of the original Superman sports bracelet with alternating satin-brushed and polished middle links. This bracelet is also fitted with an additional signed diver's extension folding clasp. Both a trendy traveller’s companion and a trusty diving partner, the Yema Superman GMT offers excellent value for money and superb functionality.
Seiko Prospex 1975 Professional Diver 1000m Tuna 55th Anniversary - Ltd Ed 1100pcs Ref. SBDX035
Celebrate 55 years of horology with Seiko as this renowned watchmaker releases its 1975 “Tuna” Diver this year. Introducing the Seiko Prospex 1975 Professional Diver 1000m Tuna 55th Anniversary Ref. SBDX035, a fine remake of Seiko’s first ever professional saturation dive watch. This limited-edition timepiece is crafted with an iconic high grade 8L35 calibre which is an undecorated version of the Grand Seiko caliber 9255, the first high-end automatic movement from Seiko that operates at 28.800 bph and has a power reserve of 50 hours.
Doing away with the usual “X” logo that characterises Seiko’s Prospex lines, this watch flaunts a deep matte blue-grey dial that captures the beauty of the sea. The subtle ombre of this dial is inspired by the gradual fading of light as one dives deeper into the sea. Furthermore, the SBDX035 is fitted with a screw-down sterile crown that allows for a 1000m water resistance.
Showing off an unprecedented update while still preserving the design of the original 1975 Ref. 6159-7010 300m Diver, this timepiece flaunts a bezel made of Ever-Brilliant Steel in its shrouded “Tuna” case construction. The case of this timepiece is analogous to the original 1975 design at an almost identical size of 52.4mm and is branded with the same Seiko Tsunami emblem just as the 6159-7010 diver on its back. Enhanced by the super-hard coating which allows for greater scratch resistance, this monobloc case has a PERN value that is 1.7 times higher than that of the typical steel material used.
The SBDX035 comes on a blue accordion rubber strap that complements the ocean blue hues of its dial. To top it off, this exquisite diver is encased in a black 55th anniversary box that proudly showcases Seiko’s signature dolphin emblem. The epitome of Seiko’s dive watches and one of the best reissues of its original, this well-fabricated timepiece is the ultimate expression of the first Tuna and is fully up to date in its specifications and execution which is testament to Seiko’s high standards and customer-centric ethos.
Seiko Presage Crown Automatic Green - Ltd Ed 1964pcs Ref. SARX071 / SPB129J1
Introducing the crown of the Presage collection, the new limited-edition Seiko Presage Crown Automatic Green modelled after this Japanese brand’s first mechanical chronograph, Ref. 5719-8992 released back in 1964. Powered by Seiko's top-end automatic caliber 6R35, the SARX071 is one of the first timepieces to incorporate this new movement built with one additional jewel, bringing the total to 24 jewels and a longer power reserve of 70 hours as compared to the 6R15.
Flaunting a slimmer profile, the SARX071 measures 41mm in diameter and has a thickness of just 11mm. Moreover, this timepiece also retains a full polish on its mid-case and case-back, straight bevelled lugs and black 60-minute bezel which characterised the 5719-8992. In spite of its nostalgic vibes, the Seiko Zaratsu polish on the entire watch case, with alternating satin-brushed finishing on top and full gloss polish on its sides and bevels, give it a contemporary gleam.
Look through the domed-shaped sapphire crystal at the matte green dial contrasted with a vibrant sunburst green inner dial with multi-finishing in circular patterns. Small applied blocks of Lumibrite that glow green in the dark encircle the inner pie-pan dial and are paired with applied faceted hour markers which are reminiscent of the 60s style found on the 5719-8992. Additionally, the central hands and minute track on the outer-circumference tastefully placed on the dial of the SARX071 also hark back to the original.
Coming with a 3-link brushed oyster steel bracelet with polished sides and a polished lining on either side of the central link, the SARX071 commemorates Seiko's first mechanical timepiece released in 1964. Share in this Japanese watchmaker’s ground-breaking achievement in horology with this watch that stays true to original heritage case design while presenting gleaming updates to its aesthetics.
