Seiko Prospex LX Watch Collection Review

Today we will be taking a look at Seiko’s newest addition to their Prospex line: the Seiko Prospex LX watch collection. Described as the epitome of a Seiko sport watch, the Prospex LX takes its name from the Latin word “lux” which translates to “light”, a muse reflected in each watch’s ability to shine a presence upon its wearer through a high aesthetic sense, practicability and precision. The Seiko Prospex LX watch has also been inspired by a historic Seiko sports watch first released back in 1968. The Seiko Professional Diver was famed for its robust construction, high functionality and exceptional precision, three key values that are found within its reincarnation.

 

By combining a high resistance case with a Spring Drive movement, these Seiko dive watches are given a true luxury status that are still offered at a relatively affordable price. The stunning designs were created by Japanese designer Ken Okuyama, the first non-Italian industrial engineer to design a Ferrari and an accomplished diver himself who chooses to wear a Seiko Prospex watch by choice. He explains in the video below how each Prospex LX watch is designed for adventure with statement cases and pronounced angles polished using the brand’s famous Zaratsu technique. The centre of the case is also designed to be the main point of gravity, so that it sits comfortably on the wrist.

 

Despite some of the angles being altered, the Seiko Prospex LX watches still hold up to the iconic Prospex aesthetic seen through the highly visibly dial and unidirectional ratcheted bezel. These watches are also the very first of their kind to showcase the Japanese manufacturer’s legendary Spring Drive movement. This is the first time the proprietary regulating system has been found outside of the Grand Seiko collection and alone, this makes the Seiko Prospex LX watch collection a must have for both adventurers and collectors looking for unbeatable precision.

 

The two Spring Drive movements used are the 5R65, a classic three hand date complication with power reserve indicator and the 5R66 which provides the same as the latter along with a handy 24 hour hand with dual time display function. Both Seiko Spring Drive movements promise an accuracy of +/- 1 second per day or +/- 15 seconds per month on average and a power reserve of 72 hours. All the Seiko Prospex LX watches also come with Lumibrite on hands and indexes, curved sapphire crystal glass with anti-reflective treatment and a screw down crown.

 

We have already been treated to a hefty collection of Seiko Prospex LX watches to choose from including two stunning limited editions and some Seiko Prospex LX GMT variations.
