Description

This specific watch is inspired by the Seiko 1968 Diver’s 300m watch – which was the highest of world standards hi-beat calibre and was used for the first climb from Japan to Mount Everest. The case construction and basis of the design of our modern re-interpretation of Seiko’s 1968 diver’s watch is faithful to the original with the cut away sides that allow for a snug, comfortable fit on any wrist. The re-designed dial layout with arrow shaped hour and sharp minute hands and different marked at 12, 6 and 9 provides high legibility at depth.

Seiko Prospex watches are designed for sports lovers and adventure seekers whether in the water, in the sky or on land. Since launching Japan’s first diver’s watch in 1965, Seiko’s innovative watchmaking has changed global dive watch standards.
