Limited to 200 pieces, this Seiko Spring Drive is part of the 'LX' line, short for 'Lux', latin for light. This watch focuses on showing the flickering reflections on the sea from the light of the moon floating in the night sky, depicted by the glamorous platinum color of the bezel.
The LX line emerged from the Seiko Prospex collection in 2019 as the pinnacle of the Seiko sport watch. It is a premium sports watch collection that blends a high aesthetic sense with high practicality. Cermet is used for the bezel in order to achieve this texture woven from the reflections of delicate light.
The gold color of the seconds hand reflected on the charcoal gray dial is reminiscent of moonlight, while the mystic scenery of the silent sea at night emerges on the wrist. In addition to the cermet exterior of the bezel, the case, based on Seiko’s original Professional Diver’s is yet another attractive element that underwent an evolution to be reborn with a sense of aesthetics and practicality befitting a contemporary luxurious item.
Zaratsu polishing is used to give a distortion-free mirror surface, as well as offering uncompromising specifications demanded of a professional diver’s watch, including water resistance for saturation diving to depth of 300 meters, a unidirectional bezel fitted with a robust cermet exterior panel, and a clasp with a push-button diver-adjusted mechanism, among others.
The movement, the engine of the watch, is fitted with Seiko’s innovative mechanism— Spring Drive Caliber 5R65. Its unique glide motion seconds hand is silent and boasts a power reserve of approximately 72 hours (3 days) when fully wound.
Spring Drive is characteristically highly reliable in sports situations as it features high resistance to temperature variations and shocks, which are to be expected in active situations such as marine sports and climbing.
