The Ultimate Divers Watch - Seiko SBBN017 - Seiko Tuna Can

Seiko SBBN017
£949 imported to the UK and Europe

Seiko have produced many legendary dive and fashion watches - often the two cross over. Never was this more true than with the Seiko tuna can watches. You know why they are called tuna cans because they look like...yes, tuna cans. The tuna range were designed to deal with the problem of helium getting into the watch when diving and then breaking the watch when surfacing. Various watch makers have dealt with this by escapement valves, Omega for example, whereas as Seiko decided to stop the helium getting into the watch in the first place - hence this rugged beast. It may only be a watch but my word - what a watch! Designed to be the perfect dive watch - massively powerful lume, amazingly accurate refined quartz movement, resistance to 1000M with a case that could withstand a small war. The tuna range achieved their aim - if you dive then a tuna, or dive computer, is what you want. Yet the more utilitarian Seiko make their watches the more desirable they become as fashion icons. The tunas are amongst the most desirable watches for Seiko collectors - assuming grail status - your collection is not really complete until you have one (even if all you are planning is to take a shower with it on!)

It seems that Seiko have been looking at the watch modders who play and redefine Seiko watches to their own particular tastes. The striking design of the SRP043K1 seems to owe a lot to many a modded watch - those stylish and "cool" hands. That said they also follow Seiko lineage in as much as the simplicity and bold looks are very much in keeping with dive watches that have preceeded this handsome beast. The 4R15 movement is a huge refinement on the trusty, rugged and dependable 7S26 movement that has been the mainstay of Seikos diver range. Greater accuracy can be expected without loss of that hardwearing character that we have come to expect from Seiko's tough divers.

Seiko SKX007J for SALE - with Seiko 7S26 movement.

The Japan made variant of the SKX007 is becoming increasingly hard to find . There has been a great deal of discussion about the differences between the models with the consensus being that actually the quality is virtually exactly the same- the robots that make them don't know how to make inferior versions! That said the rarity of the J version means that it keeps its value much better than the more ubiquitous K. This, and no small measure of exclusivity / snob value, mean that demand is kept high for this model.
