I found it intriguing that Seiko actually pre-picked a nickname for this special edition diver. Perhaps they haven’t been too impressed with the nicknames folks have come up with for their other watches. I’m not much of a watch namer myself, but I have to say, this one really reminded me of something edible when I got it in my hands.
It’s a fun watch, albeit a bit expensive. Besides the white shroud, which adds such a fun element to the design, the only other major changes between this and the standard SBBN013 diver is the lumed bezel ring, anniversary strap and specially engraved caseback. The packaging is a little bit more elaborate and also contains a card detailing the history of Seiko dive watches.
I really like the black and white strap on this one. It’s a perfect match for this watch.
With a 220,500 yen list price, the watch is marginally more expensive than the 210,000 SBBN013 and significantly cheaper than the last Special Edition quartz 1000M diver; the 420,000 yen Robert Marx SBBN00E, which in all fairness was packaged with a rare shipwreck coin. Oh, and if anyone wants a box of cookies, they are free to the first person who stops by and picks them up. I’m not really a fan of Oreos.
