Seiko LX Prospex SNR031 Review
In 2019 at the Baselworld the well-known and reputable brand of Seiko presented the LX series of Prospex timepieces. It introduced the series in the Air, Land and Sea category. The Prospex LX series features several watches that are equipped with the caliber movement of the Spring Drive.
The Seiko LX Prospex line shows upgrades in reference to the cases made of titanium, edges polished with Zaratsu and the already mentioned movement of Spring Drive. Today we are looking at the Seiko Prospex SNR031 model and dive watch and we are reviewing its features and performance in detail. The particular SNR031 is a sports male watch that will immediately appeal to you with its simple but yet powerful design.
Seiko Prospex SNR031 Features
With a diameter of 44.8mm, this case of Seiko Prospex SNR031 is said to be rather large. However, do not be fooled by the large dimensions and you can be certain that this timepiece lays comfortably on your hand wrist. The comfort is ensured by the case gravity center which is set rather low as well as the concept of the case design itself, in addition, completes the comfortable wrap of the watch around the hand wrist.
The length of the case is 50.9 mm and its thickness is 14.7 mm. The many angles are faceted, which forms the shape of the case which is polished with zaratsu. What this basically means is that this special technique enables the wearer to observe his/her reflection without distortion.
The case is made of titanium with sapphire crystal and black dial. This SNR031 has been tested and approved for up to 300m depth which makes it suitable for diving. Compared to other brands that use a valve for helium release, Seiko as with the other diving watches relies on the case structural integrity that prevents cracking of the crystal in case of decompression.
The simple elegance of the black dial makes this watch a perfect choice for almost anyone. The case has a super-hard coating with polished flat surfaces. The numerals and the markers which are engraved have a slightly noticeable blue infill that perfectly merges with the black, and thus emphasizes the simplicity but yet the elegant touch of the timepiece.
The dial has large hands that are luminous together with the markers that point the hours for better legibility regardless of the light conditions. Everything is made for easy operation of the watch even while diving so thus you have a huge bezel that is unidirectional. The bracelet strap is made of silicone and a clasp that is secured with a lock and it is three-fold. This watch is primarily intended for male watch lovers.
The Movement: Spring Drive Caliber 5R65
The Omega Prospex LX has a back that can be screwed down as it is not usual for the watches used for diving to have a back with a display. The Caliber that is integrated into the watch is Spring Drive 5R65. Seiko has already used this movement on other watches from the Marinemaster series.
The caliber movements explored in Spring Drive understand great precision in time expression and a great degree of engineering design touches. 5R65 is a popular choice caliber for people who love adventure and are keen on sports. The caliver provides a precision of one-second per day together with high degree of shock-resistance as well as resistance to temperature.
Seiko LX Prospex SNR031 Price
At a price of 6000 dollars sold at exquisitetimepieces.com.,Seiko is quite competitive when compared to other similar models and brands. The timepiece is crafted with beautiful design and incredible finishes. It appears robust and yet comfortable for wearing. Although the market is crowded with models that can be used up to 300m underwater Seiko Prospex SBBN031 is unique in the context of movement with the Spring Drive. This watch would make a great gift for Father’s Day or any other occasion where you want to be certain that the person would like the present.
