Full Review

First Impressions

This has been a long time coming. I’ve wanted to check out a Seiko diver in this price range forever, but could nothing ever captured my attention. That all changed when Seiko announced a new set of Save The Ocean Special editions with dials inspired by the glaciers of Antarctica.

For me, this is practically the perfect Seiko‚Ķ with 2 exceptions. But even with that, I’m very happy with this Marine Master 200 Reduced. Reference SBDC167 and SPB299 depending on where you are in the world.
