When talking about the Seiko Prospex Tuna series or Seiko Shrouded divers, the SBBN031 and SBBN035 would definitely come to one's mind with their comparatively attractive price, especially amongst the younger Seiko fans who look up to the "professional divers". First launched in 2015 and recently discontinued, both SBBN031 and SBBN035 were instant hits as their modern classic looks and new reliable 7C46 quartz caliber attracted those tuna enthusiasts who prefer something aside from automatic mechanical watches.
Since 1975, Seiko has been building their professional divers with a protective shroud on their diver watch's case - hence the name Seiko Tuna Can; later on simply known as - Seiko Tuna. From 1986-1989, the SBBN007 and SBBN011 have established great milestones in Seiko's history with both pieces demonstrating the premium quality and reliability of Seiko Tuna to the world. And in 2009, Seiko innovatively upgraded their Tuna collection - with SBBN015 replacing SBBN007 and SBBN013 replacing SBBN011. Subsequently by 2015, Seiko launched the popular Marine Master SBBN031 and SBBN035 to replace the SBBN015.
Though the SBBN031 and SBBN035 share the same design logic, their use of color and material give them fairly distinctive looks. The SBBN031 is a classic stainless sports watch with a stainless steel shroud matching its stainless color body and bracelet - appealing to those who long for a daily sports watch. The SBBN035 on the other hand has a black-on-black colorway with a black color silicon band - subtle yet sturdy and perfectly designed for outdoor use. With its all-black design, the SBBN035 also goes by the name "New Darth Tuna" - appealing to a wide range of Tuna watch collectors as it easily matches with all kinds of casual wear.
Given Seiko's exquisite craftsmanship and quality, both of these rare and now discontinued Seiko Prospex Tuna were considered the most value for money professional divers at that time. As the size of the SBBN031 and SBBN035 are less bulky as the 1000M Emperor Tuna, they are absolutely easy to dress with and are adaptive on anyone's wrist. For those who are passionate about Seiko Tuna, the SBBN031 and SBBN035 are without doubt the models that you should have in your collection. And now that they are discontinued, do grab one as an investment before it's too late.
Brand new SBBN031 and SBBN035 with original packaging and warranty are very rare to find and Watch Outz has been collecting these models since its launch. Go on and check out these modern classic Seiko Prospex Tunas on our website.
