Very much resembling their predecessor, the SKX781 (now discontinued by Seiko), these new dive watches from the Seiko Prospex collection are being called the “New Orange Monsters“. The re-designed triangular hour markers, which look a lot like shark teeth, have also inspired the nicknames Sharptooth, Sharpteeth, Sharktooth, and Sharkteeth.
Although called “monsters”, these dive watches have a conservative 42mm case width (approximately 1 5/8″). The 24 jewel automatic movement means you won’t have to worry about battery replacement, however it would be a good idea to make sure the watch is properly wound before your next dive. The bezel is easy to grip as well as read with large, bold markers and luminescent dot. The crown is located at the 4 o’clock position making it comfortable to wear with or without a dive suit. Featuring a 200m water resistance, this watch is perfect for recreational divers or those who like to spend a lot of time on the water. The SRP311 features a black stainless steel case and bracelet with diver’s extension clasp. The SRP315 has a stainless steel case with black bezel and black rubber strap with tang buckle.
Both watches are now currently available at Princeton Watches, at a reduced price! Get yours before they are gone!
