1 Review

Alongside Seiko’s rich and ever-growing sporting heritage in the field of professional diving most of us are vastly familiar with throughout the Prospex collection, producing high-precision timing instruments has also been a forte for the Japanese brand as one of the earliest brands to produce an automatic chronograph in the watchmaking industry. That being said, Seiko introduces a series of six new stunning chronographs models to the Prospex line up, consisting of two mechanical models and four stunning solar-powered models that joins the collection.

Inheriting a design inspired from some of Seiko’s most historical chronograps including the 1964 Crown Chronograph, Seiko’s and Japan’s first chronograph wristwatch, and the 1969 Seiko Speedtimer chronograph which was powered by the innovative in-house Cal. 6139 automatic chronograph movement, these new releases alluringly revisits Seiko’s prodigious tradition in sports timing while flexing their modern watchmaking expertise in producing some really good-looking, yet performance-oriented chronographs — Seiko definitely hit a home run with this one. 


Seiko Prospex Speedtimer Chronograph Mechanical White - Ltd Ed 1000pcs Ref. SBEC007 / SRQ035

Seiko set a stage for themselves on a international level with the endorsement of their incredibly accurate time-measuring equipments by sports federations worldwide in many of the world’s leading sports events, this success was made possible with the incorporation of Seiko’s “heart-shaped cam” mechanism, a revolutionary development which delivered a level of precision once thought unachievable by manual sports timing devices. Following the release of the 1964 Crown Chronograph during the Summer Olympics, in May 1969, Seiko launched the Seiko Speedtimer, the world’s first mass-produced automatic chronograph timepiece driven by a column wheel and vertical clutch, an especially favored feature that became widespread in today’s scene of high-end chronograph watches. These were phenomenal watches that allowed Seiko to be established as one of the leaders in wristwatch chronograph technology, and these series of newly-released models certainly pays a strong tribute to the mighty performance and visual beauty of their eminent forefathers. 

Constructed out of 316L stainless steel, the Seiko Prospex Speedtimer Chronograph Mechanical White Ref. SBEC007 - Ltd Ed is presented in a well-built case with a rounded geometry alongside a set of compact and slender lugs that provide a comfortable fit on the wrist. Measuring in with a case diameter of 42.5mm, a thickness of 15.1mm and a lug to lug distance of 45.5mm, the watch pops with a ton of character with its bold sporty appearance. As expected from Seiko, finishing is executed immaculately, displaying an entirely brushed case contrasted with a brilliant highly-polished bezel. To further enhance scratch resistance, the case is treated with Seiko’s proprietary super-hard coating, preserving the sleek beauty of the fine case finishes. 

Seiko Calibre 8R46 with (MEMS) technology

Drawing inspiration from the Seiko 1/5 second mechanical stopwatch developed in 1964 for the Olympic Games in Tokyo, the architecture of this traditional stopwatch is beautifully echoed on the case design and chronograph pushers on the Prospex Speedtimer Chronograph Mechanical White Ref. SBEC007 - Ltd Ed. One distinct feature that immediately stands out as a direct reference to this iconic timing instrument is the oversized piston pushers with flared tips reminiscent of pushers of a stopwatch. Naturally, this translates into an incredibly satisfying experience when operating the chronograph, with crisp and defined actuations. 

The 60s design inspiration of the historic stopwatch follows through onto the ultra-legible plain white dial in a bi-compax layout. With legibility being one of the most crucial attributes that contribute to the high performance of the 1964 original, the Prospex Speedtimer Chronograph Mechanical White Ref. SBEC007 - Ltd Ed ensures maximum legibility with fully printed black contrasting markers and Arabic numerals, encompassed by a sloped black rehault for the tachymeter scale. The dial exhibits a pleasing symmetry with an overall balanced layout, featuring a 30-minute counter at the 9 o’clock subdial, a running seconds subdial at the 3 o’clock position and a well-positioned date window at the 6 o’clock position. Notably, the slender seconds hand with a downward-arching tip and elongated counterweights closely resemble the hands seen on stopwatches, further emphasizing the dial’s inspiration. The dial is then complete with a dual-curved sapphire glass with anti-reflective coating on the underside. 

Constructed out of 316L stainless steel with bi-compax layout dial

At the heart of the Prospex Speedtimer Chronograph Mechanical White Ref. SBEC007 - Ltd Ed lies Seiko’s latest and most advanced automatic chronograph caliber introduced in their 8R series of movements — the Seiko in-house Cal. 8R46. Featuring all the hallmarks of the Cal. 8R48 such as a vertical clutch and a column wheel for the highest levels of precision. The 8R46 movement’s performance is enhanced by the use of micro-electromechanical system (MEMS) technology to produce the escapement, resulting in an improved stability for the watch’s mechanical precision. Beating at a rate of 28,800 beats per hour (BPH), the movement houses an astonishing 34 jewels and a capable power reserve of approximately 45 hours. 

The movement is showcased with a sapphire exhibition caseback, revealing a beautiful striped finish on the self-winding rotor. Despite not being a dive watch, the watch is well-equipped with a substantial 100m of water resistance, providing protection from light water splashes in everyday use. Limited to 1000 pieces worldwide, the caseback of each watch is engraved with a unique serial number out of 1000 pieces as a mark of exclusivity.

Seiko's LumiBrite luminous

The watch comes delivered on a 20mm solid 3-link style stainless steel bracelet in a finely brushed finish, secured on the wrist with a push-button milled deployant clasp that rests flush on the wrist. Additionally, a complementary black calfskin leather strap is included in the box for a dressier switch up in style. 

This phenomenal new release by Seiko certainly takes a vintage Seiko classic to a whole new level with a whole range of impressive modern upgrades both in terms of visual style and mechanical performance. Showcasing a stunning new chronograph caliber and a fresh contemporary form factor, the Prospex Speedtimer Chronograph Mechanical White Ref. SBEC007 - Ltd Ed truly captures the essence of one of Seiko's most outstanding chronographs that made its mark on the history books of horology.
