Seiko Prospex LX SNR027 Review
In 2019 Seiko announced the high-end LX line, large sports watches intended for outdoor use and splendid design finishes that until that moment have rarely been seen on Seiko’s models. This collection introduced the 60’s design of professional divers as well as tool watches from the nineties. This can be observed clearly in this model SNR027 from the Prospex LX collection, which was updated with blackout makeover, which gives a modern and elegant touch of the watch. This variation is one of the six models from the initial collection but also one of the three black models, that possess the commonly shared characteristics of the Prospex LX line but offers a new touch of simple elegance with the blackout design. This besides the black case and the dial is achieved also with the black calf bracelet strap. The three blackout models are one of the most popular in the collection and today we are having a detailed review of the already mentioned SNR027.
Zaratsu Technique and the Case
The variation SNR027 is a land variation that possesses a titanium case which makes the watch very light. The case is flat and broad and together with the bezel is featured in completely black color. The size of the case is the same as the other from this line with 44.8mm. The thickness measures 14.7mm with chunky ceramic bezel and a crown at 4 o’clock. The case is polished and satin-brushed black colored with all the finishes finely done in high-quality Zaratsu manner of polishing. The technique of Zaratsu is special for Seiko watches and it provides no distortion. On top of that, there is a Dia-shield coating which is super-hard. Besides the size of the watch it is surprisingly comfortable and light for wearing and does not look big at all on the wrist. It is a watch with a robust case that is designed to be used outdoors.
Bi-directional compass bezel
This watch features and incorporates the Landmasters design. The latest model SNR027 has a compass bezel that is bi-directional. The dial also follows the blackout theme together with the black GMT hand which serves for the 2nd time zone and the peripheral hour markers.
The dial together with the case is elegantly black color and the look is complemented with black metal trims around the hour markers which are applied. This simplicity is boosted with the power reserve which also has applied a fan-shaped pattern. The satin finish on the date’s frame has a gorgeous effect and the watch lovers would surely appreciate all the fine details incorporated in this timepiece. The seconds’ hand has a super smooth sweep.
The Dial of the SNR027
If you look on the dial, you will find the indicator for the power reserve positioned at eight o’clock. The crystal also enables perfect legibility as well as protection. The SNR027 features the iconic Seiko’s movement of Spring Drive and the 5R66 caliber. This movement has been one of the major selling-points for this collection together with the comfort of wear. The reference SNR itself informs you that the watch has Spring Drive, which on its behalf means stellar precision due to the combination of mechanical power and quartz regulation. The Spring Drive is featured with 30 jewels and 72 hours of power reserve. The SNR027 is very much like the SNR025 in terms of water-resistance which is up to 20 bars or 200 meters and magnetic-resistance of 4,800 A/M.
With the high-end finishes, great quality and super stellar and precise movement this watch is priced at 5,000 dollars. The price-tag is a reflection of the authenticity and design of Seiko’s signature and all the features of the Prospex LX line -quality materials, advanced technology and calf straps that shall guarantee customers’ satisfaction. This timepiece shall make a great present for an outdoor lover or adventurous type of person keen on sports activities.
