Seiko releases the 'Sumo' SBDC005 watch

First published: 22-12-2010

Divers may want to take a look at a Seiko watch, which comes with a bright orange dial so that time can easily be viewed while swimming to the ocean bed.

Dubbed the Sumo, the Seiko SBDC005 offers a "very nice" design, according to Watch Report, as well as an attractive finishing technique to the side of the timepiece and a smooth acting bezel.

It is the orange dial which has caught the most attention of reviewer James Stacey though, which he points out that it "really pops, it is bright and rich and really makes this watch feel like a dive watch".

Seiko has also made sure that this is a watch which can be worn no matter the extremity of a diver, as it supports up to 200m of water resistance.

Recently, the watchmaker has unveiled the Ananta Spring Drive Moon Phase, which offers accuracy in measuring the time – thanks to 288 unique movements – as well as a practical moon phase indicator, Hodinkee recently reported.
