[Amazon Canada] Seiko ' Prospex' Automatic Model: SRPC07 $277.89

Amazon seems to be having a sale on some seiko and orient watches. This one seems really good.

This is a good deal. Much better than the citizens posted earlier and I have each of the watches. Got my srpb97 for $275 cad back in August and it's a great watch at that price. The orange is the same used on the infamous srp309. I put mine on an black Borealis rubber strap. Orange will always be THE dive watch colour as popularized by Doxa wayyy back.

To put it simply, orange is one of the first colors to disappear underwater because the wavelength is so long. However, it retains it's hue and creates a contrast still very visible. Also it's iconic with Seiko because of the ever so popular orange monster, and it was highly popularized by Doxa in the 60s I believe with their Doxa Sub

Compared to the SKX007 this is a far superior watch for less money. Built like a tank. Hand winding and hacking.

Excellent bracelet, too.

Most visible underwater, moreso than red, yellow, light blue dials.

Turrono, eh!
good watch, good price, good reputation.

I'm a fan of the shogun prospex (basically the Ti verison of this)... which unforutnately I could only dream of at this price.

Paid $400 for mine (but it was the one with both rubber and bracelet) - this is a great deal on a great watch.

This is the next best thing if you don't already own an orange monster, I'd be tempted to jump on this if it were the blue dialed variant.

It's 44mm vs the original samurai 42mm, but don't worry because the short lug to lug and angular lugs make it wear very comfortably on most wrists. Interestingly it's one of the few Seiko divers that have a 3 o'clock crown.
