our new creations with an “Urban Safari’’ theme will be released from the Seiko Prospex Street Series. The series, which made its debut in 2018, inherits the design essence of the 1975 Professional Diver’s that was nicknamed “Tuna” by watch fans. These watches feature modern and playful designs that mix the urban feel of Tokyo with safari colors.
Each of the four new watches features an outer case protector, which has been the most iconic design of the original watch. SRPE29 and SRPE31 are the first two mechanical watches in this series, equipped with Seiko’s 4R36 movement. SNJ029 and SNJ031 are the modern versions of the Hybrid Diver’s from 1982, which is also loved by fans and given the nickname “Arnie’’. Both analog and digital displays are available.
The new series echoes the design of one of Seiko’s innovative professional diver’s watches, the world’s first diver’s watch with a titanium case, but it’s executed in a modern style, with a reinforced case, lightweight yet robust, to be perfectly matched with daily or town use. Using reinforced silicon bands that can withstand harsh operating environments, they are tailored in three colors.
