  • The Seiko SUMO with the Pepsi Bezel // Ships Now!





    SEIKO PROSPEX 200M AUTOMATIC BLUE/RED SUMO

    Prospex for Seiko means "Professional Specification" that their timepieces in this category are built with very high standards to be used by professionals. One that stands out to collectors around the world and known for one of great value for money Japanese Domestic Model(JDM) is the scuba diver series; SBDC057 nicknamed by the Seiko community as "Blue/Red Sumo."

    The Seiko Prospex 200M Automatic Blue/Red Sumo Ref. SBDC057's precursor was initially released in 2007 under the reference. SBDC003, but now with a few changes made on the latter.

    The overall look of the Sumo is one of a kind, quirky, but still wears like a professional dive watch for more than a decade, including this new Blue Coral edition.

    It is powered by Seiko's automatic caliber, 6R15, operating at 21,600 BPH (3 Hertz) with hacking and hand winding capabilities. It has 23 jewels with a power reserve of 50 hours through a Spron 510 mainspring.

    UNIQUE CASE DESIGN WITH EXCELLENT FINISHING



    The 200m water resistant Sumo stainless steel case embodies the beautiful craftsmanship and fluid line. Measuring 44mm case without the crown, and has a lug to lug length of 51mm, and a height of about 13mm, with a lug width of 20mm. A mixture of satin brush and Seiko high polishing on the sides can be seen on the whole watch with crisp edging, especially around the lugs.

    Therefore, all these have enhanced the Sumo feels a notch higher than other dive watches in the same price point for many years, and many more to come.

    The blue/red "Pepsi" bezel is aluminum, has prominently printed markings on it (keeping the Sumo theme). It rotates buttery smooth into 120 positions has zero free play in a clockwise direction. Similar to the JDM models, the screw down crown at four o'clock signed with an "S."

    Moving on to the back of the watch, the screw down case back allows 200m water resistant and is also brushed, featuring the recognizable tsunami emblem that is a staple on the other Seiko divers. Oh, please don't forget about the lug holes, allowing swapping of straps with ease.

    SEIKO'S LUMIBRITE SHINES LIKE A TORCH


    The watch's unique aesthetic along with the fat markers on the bezel, now the nickname of "Sumo" starts to ring a bell. In contrast with the SBDC033 Blue Sumo, the two-tone bezel with its blue dial is attractive, where it has a more sporty touch than its predecessor. With all that said, legibility is excellent as on all Sumos.

    The impeccable hour markers and hands are both generously coated with Seiko's LumiBrite allowing it to glow brightly in the dark for hours. The second hand is done in bright red color to aid legibility and fitting to its "Pepsi" colour theme.

    The design of the steel bracelet compliments the watch beautifully, having it brushed mainly, with polished sides and a polished lining on either side of the central link, giving the Blue/Red Sumo a seamless look and feel.

    All in all, for more than a decade, the Sumo is still one of the best bang for buck Seiko dive watch, and until now there's no other like this in its price range. The Seiko Prospex Blue/Red Sumo Ref. SBDC057 is durable and legible, with a proven robust automatic movement, excellent casework, and featuring a unique two-tone colour theme.
