The affiliation between Italian designer Giugiaro and Seiko watches is the same old thing and has already created the absolute most trying watches from the Japanese brand – for example the Seiko Chronograph 7A28-7000, acclaimed for its appearance in Alien films. In the last few years, Seiko has once again introduced the absolute most noteworthy watches designed under the pen of Giugiaro, including the 2015 Limited Edition Reissue Seiko Sced035 and as of late an Astron watch . Today, utilizing its iconic asymmetrical case, Seiko reissues a fairly obscure jump watch made during the 1980s with Giugiaro in the structure of the new Seiko Diver Scuba Limited Edition by Giugiaro Design Ref. SBEE001 and 002.
The new Seiko Diver Scuba SBEE001 and 002 are very loyal reevaluations of a vintage model previously designed in affiliation with Giugiaro, the 7C43-7A00. These expert jump watches were inconceivably intense as far as design and coordinated several materials for the case. As regular with Giugiaro, the case was topsy-turvy, with the tie fixed on the correct side of the case and the crown being set at 7 o’clock (making it more of a left-hander watch). Inside the instance of these fairly obscure 1980s watches was a high-force quartz development, the 7C43 – the more modest form of the 7C46, which is as yet utilized today in the Tuna 1000m .
The new, retro-inspired Seiko Diver Scuba SBEE001 and 002 are clear reissues of the past models. Regardless of whether you take a gander at the case, arm band, dial or bezel, everything appears genuine. The case, which estimates 48mm from one drag to another, 43.8mm from 3 to 9 and 11.2mm in stature, is made from a combination of tempered steel and plastic, for all the dark additions, which are intended to ensure the watch in the event of stuns. The SBEE001 and 002 are gotten to the wrist by silicon lashes, with a similar example as the vintage version.
As before, the development is quartz, with the type 7N36 running inside – showing hours, minutes, seconds and day-date work, and with -/+ 15 seconds out of each month exactness. The case is water impervious to 200m. Two adaptations of the Seiko Diver Scuba Limited Edition by Giugiaro Design will be accessible, the SBEE001 with non-covered treated steel case and brilliant blue dial, and the SBEE002 with gold-covered steel case and brilliant dial – both being much the same as the vintage versions.
The Seiko Diver Scuba Limited Edition by Giugiaro Design will be only accessible for the Japanese market, evaluated at JPY 40,000 (ex. charges) for the SBEE001 and JPY 45,000 (ex. charges) for the SBEE002 – roughly EUR 335 and EUR 375 at the time we distributed this article. The two adaptations are limited to 2,000 pieces. More subtleties on www.seiko-watch.co.jp .
