Seiko Prospex Diver SPB107 - Topper Limited Edition
Brand New in box
Presenting the Seiko Prospex Diver SPB107 - TOPPER LIMITED Edition
The seventh entry in an ongoing series of TOPPER Edition watches specially designed for Northern California retailer Topper Jewelers, introduces a stealthy and exclusive color treatment to a fan-favorite Seiko Prospex diver.
The Seiko ‘Prospex’ (Japanese shorthand for “Professional Specifications”) story is one that has rightfully earned its place in watch collector lore. Justifiably so, as pieces bearing the signature ‘X’ have been expressly purpose-built to the specifications demanded by marine professionals, military pilots, and adventure-seekers alike, ensuring total dependability virtually anywhere on the planet. This includes extreme water resistance, enhanced shock and magnetic resistance, and improved legibility in any lighting environment.
This very special TOPPER Edition Prospex Dive watch was inspired by that pure capability and adventurous spirit, and is built around the foundation and dial architecture of the SPB077 Diver. Introduced in 2018, the SPB077 is a thoroughly modern tool watch that continues the traditions of Seiko’s groundbreaking 6159 Hi-Beat Diver from 1968, which would go on to set the bar for all Prospex watches to follow. Like the SPB077, this TOPPER Edition includes a highly scratch resistant sapphire crystal, and Seiko’s newest long-lasting LumiBrite on the hands and markers which lasts approximately 60% longer than previous applications.
See what critics are saying about the watch:
“I think that the simplicity is what makes it work. The thoughtful details as mentioned before help make this a real looker. It’s a clean looking diver and I’d happily wear one.” - Michael Stockton (Fratello Watches)
"Fans of longtime Prospex classics like the Darth Tuna or Ninja Tuna watches ought to also appreciate how Topper has opted for a color-matched date wheel, yielding a more cohesive, all-black look throughout the watch. Legibility is maximized primarily around the timekeeping elements, and nothing else – and the watch is far better for it.” - Zach Pina (A Blog to Watch)
"A great value-for-money diver’s watch by Seiko that has one more thing going for it aside from its fair price.” - Elizabeth Doerr (Editor-in-Chief of Quill & Pad on Forbes)
“The “Topper Ninja”—or Ref. SPB107 if you want to be precise—might just be my favorite effort yet...While at first glance the dial is identical to the SBP077, the Ninja sets itself apart in its cohesion. The biggest change is the color matched black date wheel, allowing the date window to disappear into the dial far more effectively.” - Sean Lorentzen (Worn & Wound)
“$1,000 Worth Of Awesome...makes for the perfect desk diver or weekend adventure watch...Seiko and Topper have a well-designed hit on their hands...The orange-tipped seconds hand coupled with the bright white LumiBrite markers – this watch has to look great underwater.” - Josh Shanks (Managing Editior US of Watchonista)
“Perfect proportions and blacked out case, this larger timepiece feels much smaller on the wrist. It is as functional as it is beautiful.” -IMBOLDN
