Seiko Prospex LX SNR025 Review
This last year of 2019 Seiko introduced its new collection named Prospex LX. Before diving into the in-depth review of the particular model that we are looking at today, let’s first look at the whole collection philosophy.
The abbreviation LX refers to light and the reflections of light. This has been conceptually created by the well-known Japanese designer Okuyama. He is well-known for his innovative and creative designs in the world of the automobile industry and collaborated on famous names such as Porsche 911 and Ferrari.
The designer has truly created the Prospex LX line with the reputable Seiko’s uniqueness and integrity in combination with an innovative and new design that is both simple and powerful and gives a touch of a contemporary feel.
This particular model SNR025 belongs to the Land variation of the Prospex LN line and it is a GMT version. This is a sturdy and attractive sports watch that won the award for the best sports watch of the year. It is a contemporary version of the classic Professional Diver from 1968 that is enhanced with the advanced technology of the spring drive with an accuracy of 1 second per day, a great level of temperature and shock resistance. Besides owning sports features it also represents a great choice for all those adventure addicts. Such an example is Yuichiro Miura who climbed Mount Everest three times and the astronauts at the Space Station.
It possesses a flat and broad titanium case and thanks to this material the watch is light-weight. The measurements of the case are 44.8 mm and 14.7 mm thick. The surface is Zaratsu Polishing and super-hard coated. The light-weight contributes to extraordinary comfort while wearing this timepiece. This watch also features up to 200 meters of water-resistance.
The Prospex LX SNR025 has bi-directional compass bezel made also from titanium and has a smooth movement. This watch features a second hour hand or GMT hand that showcases the time of time zone different from your home zone. It is nicely finished in yellowish color and corresponds to the markers that show the 24-hours. It is extremely legible as all the important dial markings, as well as the hands, are covered with Lumbrite. The crown is positioned at 4 o’clock.
Seiko LX SNR025 Dial
The dial has been designed elegantly with metal trims elegantly framing the hour markers and the indication for the power reserve positioned at 08:00. The pattern is sunburst grey to black and really does make a great combination with the mustard yellow color of the GMT hand and the applied GMT hours on the ring. Seiko this time also has the typical date font with satin finish on the frame of the date window. There is an applied logo of Seiko on the dial together with the markers.
Seiko LX Spring Drive Movement
Seiko features an indicator for the power reserve on the dial. The power reserve is up to 72 hours or translated into days this is 3 days and the movement is with the precision of one second a day. The LX SNR025 has caliber 5R66 with the characteristic Spring Drive which consists of 30 jewels and dual-time movement. The Spring Drive is also labeled by the marking S on the dial itself.
Many may ask what does the Spring Drive understand and what does this concept mean. The concept of spring drive is actually classical automatic movement combined with a tri-synchro regulator. This is an innovative way of accurate control of the power that comes from the mainspring. Such a regulator transforms kinetic energy in electrical energy and this powers the crystal made of quartz. What basically this means for the watch enthusiasts is precision and impeccable movement.
The SNR025 model belongs to a sport line that is completed by a bracelet made of titanium just like the case. One great feature about the watch is the possibility of extension in a Marine Masters’ style, which makes the adjustment of the length simple and easy. The bracelet is mainly brushed with some polished details.
This timepiece offers outstanding performance but it does not stop here. Besides its size, it also provides great comfort and splendid design. On our site, you can purchase the ProspexSNR025 for an incredibly affordable price for such a timepiece. At the moment it is offered for approximately $5,000 USD.
Wrap Up: Seiko Prospex LX SNR025 Review
If we sum things up, we truly recommend Prospex SNR025 especially for the watch lovers who are keen on sports models. Seiko has created a spectacular case not only in design but functions as well, thus there is a power reserve indicator, date and GMT function. This model version is one of the finest sports watches from the Prospex LX collection so if you are looking for a sports model you should definitely take this one into consideration.
