    Seiko Prospex – Official Line Up For The USA!


    Seiko Prospex Kinetic GMT SUN019



    After nearly 49 years of being exclusively sold on the Japanese market, Seiko Prospex has finally gone global! The introduction of a new line up came along with its global distribution announcement, creating a ton of excitement in the collector community. The flagship for the new Prospex series is the new, shrouded Kinetic GMT, SUN019. The 47.5mm stainless steel case comes with steel bracelet and is set to retail at $695.




    Seiko Prospex Kinetic GMT SUN023



    The other variation of Kinteic Diver GMT will be the SUN023 with orange and blue accents, black hard coated case and silicone strap. Both styles will feature the 5M85 Kinetic movement with 6 month power reserve, power reserve display at the push of a button, and independent hour hand adjustment. Both models will also have anti-reflective coated sapphire crystal as well. The SUN023 will be at a retail of $675.




    Seiko Prospex Solar Chronograph SSC289



    As a part of their flight series, we will also be seeing the solar chronograph SSC289. The case is a 46mm stainless steel with rotating slide rule bezel. The features will include a 60 minute chronograph that can measure up to 1/5th of a second. There is also a 24 hour counter that acts as an AM/PM indicator. The piece is solar powered with 6 month power reserve, has AR coated sapphire crystal and will retail for $650.




    Seiko Prospex Automatic 4R36 Monster SRP583



    The Seiko “Monster” Automatic has made its way into the Prospex series with the upgraded 4R36 movement we 1st saw in the US last year in limited edition form. The SRP583 will come on black hard coated stainless steel bracelet with matching case and bezel, and will have yellow gold accents on the hands and crown. The MSRP on this “Monster” will be $595.




    Seiko Prospex Automatic 4R36 Monster SRP581



    The 2nd “Monster” in the Prospex series is the SRP581, with Blue coated bezel and black coated case. It’s hard to tell the blue in the image, but it will be the same blue as on last years limited edition SRP455. This model on polyurethane strap will retail for $475.




    Seiko Prospex Automatic Compass Bezel Limited Edition SRP579



    A limited edition model of “Monster” will also be introduced to the US market this year. The all black SRP579 will have a compass bezel, black gradient dial and leather strap with contrast stitching. The 45mm case will be black hard coated, as will the bezel, and also feature the 4R36 movement. This model will retail for $475.




    Seiko Prospex Solar Chronograph SSC279 SSC275 SSC277



    Seiko Prospex Automatic SRP585 SRP633



    There will also be several models we did not see 1st hand, as we did not have enough time. There will be another series of solar chronograph, brown dialed SSC279 at $450, the blue dialed SSC275 at 495 and SSC277 at $550. There will be 2 other 4R36 automatics, with SRP585 at $475 and SRP633 at $515. There will certainly be some great values in the new Prospex line up.



    Of course, Prospex isn’t Prospex without some kind of massively constructed, high quality, super-accurate tool watch…




    Seiko Prospex Spring Drive Tuna Can SBDB009



    The Prospex Marine Master 600 Spring Drive Tuna Can is back! The all black professional diver will be hitting US soil this year, with the same titanium DLC shroud as on the previous limited edition model SBDB008. Minus the gold accents, the watch is identical, and is estimated to retail at $4,200. This piece will be available in limited quantities, though not limited edition. This is a great opportunity for those who missed out on the collectible LE from last year.



    All pieces are currently available for pre-order, with delivery dates ranging from July to October for release.



    As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 1-800-486-3996 or submit an inquiry through AZFineTime.com.


    Thanks for reading!

    Very nice watches. I was under the impression that the only Prospex models that will actually be sold her are the Monsters and kinetic drives. Is that wrong? Will Sumo level and above also be sold in the good old US of A?

    $475 MSRP for a Monster???!?!???


    Guess production cost on that new "X" Prospex icon was expensive and needs to be amortized over every model that they slap it on. LOL

    I definitely have my eye on that GMT Kinetic Diver though. Hopefully the the actual street price will settle in much lower than the stated MSRP.

    Wow. Not one of those does anything for me. I'm sure they're all really nice watches. But I can see them blending in alongside Citizen's domestic offerings.

    But then again, I tend to go for simpler watches.

    I am curious if the street price will approach or be competitive with grey market.

    Thanks Joe for the info. Any measurements of the lug width on the shrouded Kinetics for the band\strap changing crowd?

    Did you pause to contemplate the USA RRP/MSRP of 'regular' SRP Monsters?

    I can see not bringing over the SBDX001, but expanding Prospex to the US while keeping the Sumo a JDM-only model is confusing.

    The MM and the Sumo, too, are officially available in europe. So i don't really understand, why they won't sell them in the US.

    No Sumo, no MM300, no Darth, no SBBN-series Tunas ... looks like Seiya & co. still have a business.
