Seiko Prospex Marinemaster Golgo 13 Limited Edition Quartz Diver (Ref. SBBN023) Japanese / Quartz

Seiko has recently updated its family of expensive divers with a new limited edition model. Created together with the local Shogakukan publishing company, the new Seiko Prospex Marinemaster Golgo 13 Limited Edition (Ref. SBBN023) pays homage to the iconic "Golgo 13" series of manga comic books, which is centered around the eponymous character who happens to be a professional assassin. Although the character prefers to do his job with a scoped M-16 automatic rifle (a strange choice of weapon for a professional killer, but at least it looks nice on pictures), there is always a room for a diving suit and a good old speargun.


Citizen Scuba Fin Eco Drive 200M Solar-Powered Diver Japanese / Quartz

Summer is still far from over and Citizen has a nice model to offer the constantly growing crowd of budget-conscious amateur divers. Their new Citizen Scuba Fin Eco Drive diving tool comes equipped with the "green" solar-powered quartz movement that runs for almost whole six months after being fully charged and its built-in battery never needs to be replaced. Claimed to work for as long as 20 years without losing its properties, the battery has a good chance of outliving the watch itself.


Casio G-SHOCK GW-A1000-1ADF Smart Access Japanese

The new Casio G-SHOCK GW-A1000-1ADF solar-powered timekeeper features the same Smart Access that we have recently seen on an all-analog Casio ProTrek PRX-7000T pilot's watch. Using a revolutionary five-motor drive and an electronic crown switch, the system makes operating the gadget's numerous functions as easy as it can possibly get without using touch-based interface. And with its radio controlled Multiband 6 system, this is also one of the most precise time measuring devices that money can potentially buy.


Casio ProTrek All-Analog PRX-7000T Japanese

Although the annual trade fair in Basel is usually associated with fine (and often impressively expensive) mechanical watches, there is always a number of lower-priced models made by Japanese watchmaking giants that, while not looking particularly dressy or refined, bring to your wrist cutting-edge technologies that turn a modest quartz timekeeper into a miniature computer. The new Casio ProTrek PRX-7000T all-analog watch is one of these few.


Grand Seiko GMT 10th Anniversary Edition Automatic (Ref. SBGM029) Japanese

At the last trade show in Basel, the luxury sub-brand of the Japanese watchmaking giant has presented a pair of limited edition versions of their GMT model. The Grand Seiko GMT 10th Anniversary Edition with the reference number SBGM029 is the most impressive with its noble blue dial and striking yellow gold accents of the second time zone indicator and the predictably "GMT" inscription at six o'clock.


Seiko Solar Pilot Alarm Chronograph Japanese

The Japanese watchmaking brand has recently introduced yet another member of its line of accurate and not particularly expensive pilot watches. Called Seiko Solar Pilot Alarm Chronograph (ref. SSC009), the new timekeeper offers a loud alarm, a Breitling-style slide rule, as well as a 60-minute chronograph accurate up to 1/5th of a second.


Citizen Eco-Drive Signature Perpetual Calendar Diving Watch Japanese

The recently introduced Citizen Eco-Drive Signature Perpetual Calendar (ref. BL1258-53L) has immediately sparked controversy among watch enthusiasts and bloggers. The reason for the universal brouhaha was the decoration of the timekeeper's unidirectional rotating bezel that looks like it was blatantly the ripped-off TAG Heuer Aquaracer 500M Calibre 5 diving watch that went on sale two years prior the introduction of this model.


Orient M-Force 200M Automatic Diver Japanese

It looks like the Japanese watchmaker is finally going to reintroduce its M-Force series of sporty timekeepers to the North American market. The offensive will begin with the new Wunderwaffe: the 2011 Orient M-Force 200M (refs. EL03001B, EL03001D & EL03002M) automatic diver. Available in three colors of its dial (black, blue and orange with the pale green luminescent substance on its hour markers and hands,) the new timekeeper is officially rated for 200 meters, which makes it a perfect companion for recreational scuba diving.
