Two of Seiko’s hottest new dive watch releases for 2018 are inspired by a dive watch the company made in 1968 but in contemporary form.

The first, Prospex SPB077 is in stainless steel with a black bezel, black dial, and steel bracelet with a super hard coating designed to resist scratches. The second, Prospex SPB079 is in stainless steel with a blue bezel and a black rubber accordion strap.

Retail is $850 (SPB079) and $1,050 (SPB077).
