WHY THIS WATCH
The Seiko Prospex line, launched in 1965, encompasses Seiko's professional-grade dive, land, and aviation watches. The first Prospex, the 62MAS, was Japan's inaugural dive watch. Since then, Prospex has introduced innovative technologies like the Kinetic movement and Spring Drive, earning a reputation for durability, accuracy, and affordability among outdoor enthusiasts and watch collectors.
The LX series, launched in 2019 as part of Seiko's Prospex collection, represents the epitome of Seiko sports timepieces. The name LX is derived from the Latin term for light, alluding to the manner in which light bounces off the wide, flat surfaces of each watch case. This high-end sports watch collection seamlessly combines contemporary design with exceptional functionality. A limited-edition timepiece, drawing inspiration from the Antarctic where Seiko diver's watches have their origins, is now part of the LX series. The dial of this exclusive edition embodies the enigmatic submerged forest located at the base of a lake near Skarvsnes Foreland in Antarctica.
The dial of this limited edition watch vividly represents the underwater moss columns found at the base of a lake in Skarvsnes Foreland. The green ceramic bezel signifies the enduring life force nurtured over an extensive period within the Antarctic terrain. The watch's design draws inspiration from Seiko's groundbreaking 1968 Diver's watch, which featured a 300m water resistance and a high-beat movement. A Prospex reimagining of the 1968 Diver's received the Sports Watch Prize in 2018 at the esteemed Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève. The LX series carries on the original case design of the 1968 Hi-beat Diver's watch. The distortion-free, Zaratsu-polished mirror surface of the case exterior, combined with a lowered center of gravity, offers a contemporary appearance and enhanced wrist comfort. The LX series was awarded the Diver's Watch Prize at the 2019 Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève for its modern aesthetics and superior functionality, earning the admiration of watch enthusiasts worldwide.
The watch's core, its movement, incorporates Seiko's cutting-edge mechanism — the Spring Drive Caliber 5R65. This movement features a distinct, smooth-gliding seconds hand that operates silently and offers an impressive power reserve of about 72 hours (3 days) when fully wound. Spring Drive is known for its exceptional reliability in sports scenarios due to its high resistance to temperature fluctuations and shocks, which are common occurrences in activities like marine sports and climbing.
At 44.8mm in diameter and 15.8mm thick, this is a large watch that sits large, high, and proud on my 6.5-inch wrist. This is offset however by the full titanium case and band. The limited edition green dial has a very nice texture and is very legible. I also appreciate the power reserve indicator on the dial.
THE LITTLE DETAILS
This is a one-owner piece, purchased from an Authorized Dealer in 2021, and comes with a box and papers. The watch is in overall excellent condition, with some very light wear on the case and bracelet. There are no dents or deep scratches, just surface wear. I would give the case and bracelet around 9/10. The green bezel, sapphire crystal, and dial are free from any scratches.
