Write a review

Seiko has become a well-respected brand whose watches have been enjoyed by many since its founding in 1881. The brand is an undisputed king of watchmaking from its first mechanical watch in 1913 to the 2014 prize at the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) for its hi-beat caliber. In recent years, Seiko has worked hard to streamline its offerings. The Prospex and Presage lines have become more defined and stand on their own capably. Today’s new release is part of the former. Let us take a closer look.

Today’s release of an all-new Solar Diver is part of Seiko’s limited edition black series, “Night Vision.” First introduced in 2021, the Seiko Prospex Solar Diver introduced a solar-powered dive watch into Seiko’s Prospex catalogue and quickly became a fan favourite. It is not hard to see why - the watch packs a reliable movement, modest case dimensions, and real dive watch specifications backed up by its ISO 6425 certification. 


Seiko Prospex Solar Diver “Night Vision” - Ltd Ed 6000pcs Ref. SBDN081 / SNE587

With a wearable 38.5mm case diameter, the watch has a height of 10.6mm and a lug-to-lug of a mere 46.5mm. The dimensions result in an enjoyable wearing experience regardless of wrist size. The watch is made entirely of 316L stainless steel and features an all-brushed PVD black coating. 

Sporting classic Seiko syringe-style and arrow hands, the watch is set on a matte black dial with circular indices used throughout, except for baton-style indices at 6 and 9 and a triangular index at 12. A date window can be found at 3, providing a helpful complication while not messing up the dial’s proportions due to its blacked-out wheel. The black second hand is also white-tipped, providing a nice contrast and allowing the wearer to locate the second hand quickly. 


 Seiko's solar caliber V147

Being a dive watch, the Solar Diver Night Vision features an all-black 120-click unidirectional dive time bezel, allowing the wearer to track elapsed time. The screw-down crown and caseback also provide a healthy 200m of water resistance, helping the timepiece meet the ISO 6425 requirements of a proper dive watch. A piece of sapphire crystal is also affixed atop the dial, a nice upgrade from Seiko’s proprietary Hardlex. The SBDN081 also gives you night vision (pun intended), but only when reading the time on the watch at night. Seiko applied a generous amount of Lumibrite on the indices and hands, allowing for a bright glow in the dark. 

Powering the timepiece is Seiko’s in-house solar calibre, the V147. The movement does not require external batteries to charge and is solely powered by light. On a full charge, the movement will run for ten months consecutively. It is also fairly accurate, with stated deviance of +/- 15 seconds per month. The movement also has a low battery indicator whereby the second hand will only tick once every two seconds. You do not require a particular light source to charge up the watch. Any form of natural or artificial lighting will do the trick. The V147 is a robust and reliable movement that packs tons of convenience, thanks to its solar-powered nature. 


Seiko's Lumibrite needs no introduction

As a limited-edition Seiko timepiece, each timepiece is also individually numbered XXXX/6,000 on the caseback. Seiko pairs the Solar Diver Night Vision on a 20mm PVD-coated black bracelet. The bracelet tapers gently to a signed Seiko buckle and will add to a comfortable wearing experience on the wrist. The 20mm lug width also allows for a plethora of strap options to match the watch.

The Seiko Prospex Solar Diver “Night Vision” Ref. SBDN081 is part of a trio of watches in this limited-edition release. With classic good looks and packing unbeatable specifications for its price, this watch is not one to be missed. Collectors and fans alike would also most definitely try to “collect ‘em all” by getting all three watches of this series into their collection.
