Is the SBGE001 GMT considered a Divers Watch?
I say no because it has a uni directional bezel and no Divers bracelet
My friends say yes, what do you guys think?
Thank You for your input,
Thanks for your input minidriver, I dont believe it has a solid case back (like the marinemaster 001)The 24 hour lumed sapphire bezel actually has 60 clicks, so it is possible to use it for timing purposes. The case of this watch is rated to 200m or 20 bar and has a solid case back and screw down crown at 4 o'clock. This model follows on Seiko's diver watch DNA.
The hands, dial markers and bezel have crazy bright and long lasting lume.
I do know someone that has actually dived while wearing it. The only caveat of this model is the non-adjustable bracelet clasp.

Hi Bullosa,Hi Traintime,
I dont think SBGE001 was designed as a dive watch anymore then the Rolex GMT Master II. It does however have very respectable WR specs with nice lume. You can certainly dive with it although the bracelet may not be dive suit friendly. It's also a great watch to own, so go for it if you are thinking about it. :thumbup1:
I'm curious why you would ask that question? To me, a "dive watch" would be one with which you could time your dive, see in murky conditions, which has adequate WR.
This is not marketed as a dive watch, but it certainly is similar in appearance, and has similar utility.
If you like it, and its utility, what difference does it make whether others think it's a "dive watch"?
I'm not sure what you mean by a solid case back, To me it would have to be like Seiko's Marine MasterSure it does have a nice solid case back with the finely engraved GS lion log:

SBDX001 which can not be removed from the back, only from the front of the watch, The GMT opens from
the back, see the Spanner notches, unless you mean it's solid not a see through sapphire crystal, then I see your point.
Thank you for your reply,
