What customers say about "Key Specs"
Seiko SPB053 PROSPEX DIVER
  • It is a very nice looking watch, very distinctively profiled relative to most other divers on the market, and the movement is reliable
  • I have over 10 automatic divers and this is my go to watch. The lume is magnificent.
  • I wish I would have bought it a few months ago when I saw it for the first time. The movement is very reliable as well.
  • So far the watch keeps excellent time, I'm very pleased with it.
  • Beautiful watch. The bezel lines up perfectly, accuracy is excellent. The Lyme is outstanding.

  • Upon inspection with a loupe the watch showed absolutely no flaws, the chapter ring is perfectly aligned and the bezel turned very well with no play once clicked into place.
  • The watch has been running for 48 hours straight now and has only gained about +1 seconds. that's better the my Rolex Sub did out of the box.
  • The dial is perfectly aligned with a subtle sunburst effect. Understated elegance, another dress/tool watch.
  • I can wear it with a suit and tie and it is dress enough for any occasion, at home at 100 feet below, and in the office.
  • The 200m water resistant case is treated with Seiko’s DiaShield coating, sunburst blue dial and applied markers.

  • The sapphire crystal gives it a very "rich" vintage look and the bezel is stunning.
  • The blue sunburst dial, brushed case, sapphire crystal, nice looking hands and incredible lume make this a first class sport piece.
  • This blue dial with silicone strap is much better with short sleeves and jeans or khakis.
  • The crystal sapphire looks awesome, and the lume is strong.
  • The bezel has such a nice sheen that it seems to change color at different angles.

Seiko SPB053 PROSPEX DIVER
  • The Seiko quality is evident in both the case and bracelet. As others have mentioned; the lume is fantastic - the best on any watch I have had.
  • The markers are bright and readable all night long. My crown was aligned perfectly.
  • Love this watch. Perfect size for my 7.5” wrist. Not too small, not too large.
  • Excellent resistance and audible clicks on the unidirectional bezel
  • Love this watch. Solid and you can see the dials in the dark very well.casual and dressy.i will buy it again
Seiko SBDC053 watch PROSPEX 1st Divers modern design
  • My wrist is a flat 6 and 7/8 inches, and because this 42mm case has short lugs, it looks good on my wrist.
  • It’s a great looking watch and fits fine on wrists 7inches or bigger. The classic 62mas styling is awesome.
  • The dial has a subtle sunburst, which gives a nice depth. The polishing is excellent. Shockingly nice for the price.
  • Very beautiful retro styling. Diashield is a huge plus.
  • The divers band is super silky smooth and comfortable, this is the nicest dive band Seiko has ever released, so comfortable you will forget that it is there.
