Seiko Ignition Solar Diver

The Seiko Solar Ignition Diver Watch isn’t atomic like the Seiko Ignition Takuma Sato, but it is a solar Ignition, and it is most definitely a beautiful watch.

Features of the Seiko Solar Ignition Diver Watch include:

  • Titanium case and bracelet.
  • Seiko’s own “Hardlex” crystal (used in many of Seiko’s divers because it is especially hard).
  • Solar-powered with a 6-month reserve and overcharge prevention.
  • Quartz accuracy of ± 20 seconds per month.
  • Double locking clasp with “one-push” diver extension (to go over a wetsuit).
  • Water-resistant to 200 meters, or about 650 feet.
  • Rotating bezel for dive timing (not sure if it’s uni- or bi-directional).
  • Screwdown caseback.

This watch does not appear to be available in the US, so the best way to get more information is to do a Google search, and click on some “Translate this page” links. And of course, you can always count on a translated version of Watch-Tanaka for good information and nice pictures. It looks like this watch should go for about $450.
