After so many years in watch manufacturing industry it’s not a surprise that Japanese Seiko produces excellent watches.

This time we’re going to present you an excellent Seiko dive watch, named The Shogun and with spring drive movement. This type of movements is one of the best out there. It is very accurate and usually it’s implemented in Seiko’s most expensive watches, but sometimes it founds the way to models such as Shogun.

The problem is that Seiko is selling this model only in Japan.

The case of Shogun is made of a special type of titanium which is hardened and named Dia-Shield. This is one of the reasons why the model costs a bit more than some of the similar models. The hardened titanium makes the surface harder to scratch or damage and above all it looks great. Seiko engraves the tsunami logo on the backcase of its dive watches and the Shogun is not an exception.

The rotating bezel has deep grooves so it’s easier to grip.

The Shogun’s dial is clean, with luminous dots marking the hours, but arrows mark six, nine and twelve o’clock. The arrow marking 12h is split down the middle.

The hour hand is a huge arrowhead similar to the hand on Seiko Monster. The minute hand has a shape like a pencil. The second hand has a small luminous square on its tip.

The bracelet has folding clasp with security lock.
