Seiko have surprised us with a trio of stunning limited edition all-black divers watches. These three Seiko Prospex Sea Black Series Limited Edition watches have already almost sold out so we wanted to get a review in as quickly as we could to let you guys know what you’re about to miss out on.

Let’s start with the Seiko Prospex Sea Black Series Limited Edition SNE493P1, a time-only diving timepiece. This exquisite limited edition model boasts a 200 metre water resistance and has been designed especially to be suitable while scuba diving.

This incredible Seiko Solar technology means that all types of light, whether artificial or natural, is converted into energy to power the hour, minutes and seconds function and large date window at 3 o clock.
