Seiko slowly took over the middle range market of watches. That is because they always released high-quality watches at the best price possible. With the “Tuna Can” or more specifically “Ninja Tuna” however, the company seemed to have deviated a little from this idea. Coming at a semi-luxury price range the Prospex Marinemaster SBBN035 offers an overall great experience for the determined diver. Things like a 300-meter water resistance, a stainless steel case resistant to helium or a dual Hardlex crystal window are not foreign to the “Ninja Tuna”.
There is always a concern when it comes to silicone straps about the comfort during certain conditions especially when in contact with water. That is a reasonable concern because most people who spend this amount of money on a watch do not expect to go and buy a new strap after 1 month. However, I consider that the strap on this Seiko is spot on to make for a good wear both when wet or when worn with a wetsuit.
There is also a concern when it comes to size and its implications to the wearability of the watch. Here all I can say is already the obvious; if you do not like big sized watches the Ninja Tuna is probably not for you, but depending on your wrist size and preference the watch can come up as a great everyday companion.
On the illumination, there is not much to tell. The Lumibrite paint is as always, impressively bright, making the watch readable in every situation as dark as it may be. It is reasonable to say that you will be able to read the hour at 200 meters underwater during night time without a doubt. As you can see in the images below the markers have different sizes and shapes so you can easily distinguish between them and there is also a bright point on the top of the bezel.
The Seiko Promaster “Ninja Tuna” is a great choice for divers who do not accept compromises. The watch is a must have for both amateur and professional divers alike and why not, collectors. It is true that you will have to spend a little more to get your hands on one but it is worth it.
