Seiko Prospex Special Edition PADI Dive Watch with Solar Movement #SNE499

This new Seiko dive watch is part of a collection often referred to as the Seiko Tuna. It is a large watch at 47mm that comes with blue shroud to help protect the case and bezel. However it is smaller than some previous Tuna models that were in the 50mm diameter range. It is a special edition PADI model. It comes with a vibrant blue silicone dive strap. Includes a date display, super-luminous markers and hands treated with Lumibrite, a wave pattern blue dial, screw down crown, uni-directional bezel, scratch resistant hardlex crystal, stainless steel back, and a blue shroud (or case guard) to protect the case from dings and scratches.

The SNE499 has a Seiko V157 solar powered movement that has a 10 month power reserve when fully charged by light. We suggest giving it a good charge when you first receive the watch. No battery changes are required. The movement accuracy is: +/- 15 seconds per month (between 5°C and 35°C)

The dial design has just one objective; maximum legibility, even deep in the ocean where sunlight does not penetrate. The hour markers are large, so as to allow the maximum surface area and depth for Seiko's Lumibrite coating (blue and green). The hands, too, are wide and easy to read. The deep grooves in the bezel are designed for easy operation, even when diving gloves are worn. The watch is designed and manufactured to withstand up to 200m going under the water, and is suitable for wearing while scuba diving. The crown has screw-down protection to prevent it from being pulled out by any accidental operation as the water resistance function is secured only when the crown is at its normal position. The precise and secure operation of the uni-directional bezel prevent accidental rotation, so that the time measured is never shorter than the actual elapsed time.

NOTE: The bezel is lumed for the 15 minutes markings. This may be a first for Seiko (lume on the bezel).

5 of 5 Amazing Diver Watch! June 19, 2020
Reviewer: Eric from Orange County, CA United States  
This watch looks better in person. It keeps very accurate time and I love the fact that it is solar powered. The lumibrite lume lasts all night and as a bonus the hour hand comes in a different color lume to make it even easier to read the time in the dark. As always Mark and the crew at Long Island have excellent customer service and I highly recommend.

5 of 5 Excellent Solar Dive Watch August 19, 2018
Reviewer: Mikie from APO, AP United States  
Finely crafted case with a Tuna Can shroud -soft poly strap in blue is VERY comfortable. Expected lume for a Seiko diver is present. Great value for a PADI series dive watch. Island Watch sent it via USPS to my military AP address in record time.
