Seiko Prospex LX SNR029 Review
The models from the Prospex LX line are made of titanium which, which makes this Seiko watch very comfortable on the wrist due to the lightness. The SNR029 features a large sports case with 44.8 mm size and it is 14.7 mm thick. In addition to being lightweight, it is a robust and sturdy watch.
The Prospex LX SNR029 shares many similarities with Grand Seiko including the movement and finishing. They also share the same applied technique of polishing using Zaratsu which contributes to the fine finish of the watch design. The design of the case was created by the well-known Porsche designer Ken Okuyama who made an excellent job in making this large case wearable while keeping the good looks.
Seiko Prospex LX SNR029 Visibility
This model SNR029 is water-resistant up to 300 meters and is used as a diver’s watch. In this context what we can expect from this watch is unidirectional titanium bezel. The bezel has a high gloss finish and a diving scale. The markers that are used to label the 60 minutes are with a luminous dot that provides great visibility in environments where there is no sufficient light. Seiko uses LumiBrite material for this and many of the satisfied customers confirm that compared to the watches with Super-LumiNova, this luminous material shows much better results when it comes to visibility and readability.
As the Prospex SNR029 is a dive watch this is extremely important and one of the best selling points of this watch is the dial. The owners of the watch are at ease with reading the minute hand. The hands for the minutes and the large hand for the hours are filled also with LumiBrite while the hand for the seconds features a dot which is luminous.
Seiko Prospex LX SNR029 Dial
This dial does not have an option for reading a second-time zone which means that this model does not have GMT hand. The twelve-hour markers are quite large in size and pretty bright, which makes this watch extremely readable. There is a double marking at the position of 12 o’clock and there is not any on the position of the date window. The dial also features a date aperture and an indicator for the power reserve which is typical for the Spring Drive.
The logo of the Prospex line can be found on the dial together with the sign that this watch is driven by the movement - Spring Drive.
Seiko Prospex LX SNR029 Spring Drive 5R65
The Prospex LX SNR029 as part of the Prospex line uses the famous Seiko-created movement of Spring Drive. As this is an advanced movement it also adds to the value of the watch, making it high-end. The caliber that is integrated here in the SNR029 is 5R65. As mentioned the movement is featured on the indicator for the power reserve positioned on the dial which actually is very similar if not the same as the other models from the line of Prospex LX collection. The power reserve of the watch is 72 hours which is again just enough if you want to take a rest of this watch, maybe wear another and then put it back again without worrying that you will have to set up the date or the time.
Seiko Prospex LX SNR029 Caseback
We have discussed the movement of Spring Drive and what it means for the Prospex LX SNR collection, so we are not going to go into details just briefly repeat that for the owners it means quartz precision i.e. deviation of one second a day per average. Unfortunately, the back case is not transparent and the movement cannot be observed. The case back has engraved a logo together with some additional information. The same as the other models from the collection the case back is not monobloc but screw-down.
Seiko Prospex LX SNR029 Bracelet
The Prospex LX case is in great combination with the bracelet’s design. The bracelet strap is also made of titanium. You can release the clasp that features 2 pushers and in case you want to extend the strap if you want to wear it over the clothes you can easily do this by the extension system, which is convenient for use. By sliding the clasp you can make the strap shorter or longer. The quality of the finish is impeccable and can also be observed on the polished links.
Wrap Up: Seiko Prospex LX SNR029 Review
Priced at $6,000 USD the Seiko Prospex SNR029 comes as a positive surprise offering great value. The splendid design of this timepiece with its many Zaratsu polished surfaces and brushed finishes provides a sophisticated outlook. This is boosted with the Spring Drive and clear design of the dial that enables great readability. You will absolutely fall in love with the bracelet too as it really contributes to all the robust and sturdy look that the design of the watch is representing.
