If there’s any brand that knows how to iterate on its catalog, it’s Seiko. Now, I know some people get tired of new colorways and slight variations, but I don’t. I’m generally all for brands offering more options to their customers. After all, we’re all persnickety, detail-obsessed watch nerds, right, so having more options just means that you may get the exact version of a watch you’ve been waiting for.
With their new limited collection they’ve dubbed the “Black Series,” Seiko is unveiling three black-on-black divers, not unlike what they did back in 2018 with their first “Black Series” collection, which also featured three watches. Pulling inspiration from night diving, this new series reimagines two beloved Seiko divers, creates a unique third, and renders all three in black to great effect. Let’s take a look at each.
