    Are Stowa releasing an updated Seatime??

    It seems odd to me that the number of options when buying a Seatime are getting fewer and fewer. Before I got mine a couple of years ago there were various dial colours to choose from, whereas now there's only black, there were more bezel choices, and now even the much loved bracelet has been discontinued. Why?! I've twice contacted Stowa to ask if/when they'll be getting more of the blue bezels in stock and each time I'm just told they're 'sold out', which is not only obvious from the website but also, frustratingly, doesn't answer the question. Whilst I've not read anything about a new model being on the way it seems to me to be a likely explanation - sell through the remaining stock and accept that the offer is going to look a bit weird as holes appear in the range, and keep the new model under your hat to avoid snuffing out demand for the current one.

    I'd be interested to see what a new Seatime might look like... almost as much as I'd like to see a blue bezel on my existing one....

    This is was CM Hunter wrote:

    I think the bracelet is the reason for both Seatime and Prodiver models only being offered in Ti. They had trouble getting the specialised (because of the integration with the case) thing produced, and so they decided if they made the cases out of Ti, there would be a better excuse to no longer go through the trouble of having to get them. Just a theory of course, but the only logical reasoning I can come up with to having Ti cased dive watches as your ONLY offering to people.
    Not holding my breath for a new updated Seatime/Prodiver. If pigs started flying though, I think you would see a different design that doesn't have the bracelet being an obstacle to try to get around.

    So, again sorry that i click the "edit" button instead the "reply" button ;)

    Here is my answer:

    The reason to have the Titanium case now is that many people ask for this ,)

    No other reason ,)

    And - to reduce the versions we decided for this moment to keep only titanium case.

    It has nothing to do with bracelet and so.

    We are planing since a few months to add the titanium bracelett, but we have had many other projects.

    I think we will add in 2016. (not sure till when, but not before summer 2016)

    best regards

    Like I said, it was just a hunch. Great to hear plans for the Ti bracelet. I've fallen in love with Ti divers since the purchase of my Gen 2 Pelagos. Will add a Prodiver when bracelets are available.

    Good to see plans for the Seatime/Prodiver bracelet. Hoping a bracelet for the Flieger Sport line will be considered.

    With the bracelet back and me missing my limette PD, I might have to add one to go along with my SS light blue dial PD.
