Description

The 1968 Seiko Diver’s watch was the first hi-beat diving watch – an important milestone in Seiko’s six decades of innovation in diving watches.

Its 10-beat high precision automatic calibre, one-piece structure, mono-directional rotating bezel and screw-down protection crown influenced Seiko diver’s watch development which has, for nearly 60 years, pushed back the frontiers of precision, durability and ease of use in watches for professional and recreational divers.

This 2021 version comes with calibre 6R35 and its long-lasting 70 hour power reserve, improved legibility and high visibility.

Prospex is a combination of the words ‘Professional’ and ‘Specifications.’
Seiko Prospex timepieces are designed to be practical, reliable and durable; to meet the high standards required in extreme environments for sports lovers and adventure seekers alike.
Since launching Japan’s first diver’s watch in 1965, Seiko’s innovative watchmaking has changed global dive watch standards.
