Seiko Prospex “Whale” Now Available In Malaysia
Thong Sia brings the Seiko Prospex “Whale” to Malaysian customers for just RM4,950.
The Seiko Prospex SPB427 timepiece, a limited edition masterpiece known also as the “Whale”, is now available in Malaysia, Brunei, Hong Kong, Macau and Singapore. There are only 1,000 pieces in existence, making this horological tribute to Humpback whales all the more desirable to collectors and enthusiasts.
Inspiration from the Deep Sea
The inspiration for the Whale watch emerged from a team of passionate craftsmen with a deep love for the sea. They were profoundly moved by the Humpback whales, known for their graceful and frequent breaches in the ocean. This inspiration led them to create a timepiece that embodies the elegance and freedom of these majestic creatures.
Design and Aesthetic
The Whale watch is a visual masterpiece. With a bright white dial and bracelet that contrasts strikingly with the black hands and case, it mirrors the Humpback’s appearance. The bracelet is available in both stainless steel and silicone, offering versatility in style. The Whale is not just a precise timekeeping tool; it is a work of art that reflects the dedication and craftsmanship of its creators.
One of the notable features of the Whale watch is its use of LumiBrite technology. The bezel, hands, and indices are coated with LumiBrite, combining modern aesthetics with practicality. This ensures excellent visibility in various lighting conditions and reflects a commitment to environmental protection and advanced technology.
Inside the Whale
The heart of the Whale watch is SEIKO’s Caliber 6R35, nestled within a robust 45mm stainless steel case. SEIKO’s reputation for precision and reliability is maintained, making this watch a true tool for diving enthusiasts. This watch movement is found in a number of reputable Seiko watches.
A Symbol of Excellence
The Whale watch embodies four key attributes: ingenuity, elegance, tenacity, and freedom. These qualities are elegantly integrated into the timepiece, making it a precious collector’s item. When you wear the Whale, you carry with you the persistence of the craftsmen and the tranquility of the ocean.
