The 1965 Re-Creation was inspired by Seiko’s links to Antarctica – where Seiko dive watches have been put to the test in extreme conditions by Japanese Antarctic Research Expeditions four times since 1966.
The marine blue dial and strap colour signifies the unforgiving freezing Antarctica seas, whilst the hairline finish on the front and sides of the case are designed to represent the looks of a Glacier. In a 2020 watch industry first, the grade of stainless steel in the case of this watch, Seiko’s “Ever-Brilliant Steel,” is more corrosion-resistant than in most luxury watches today and only usually used in the marine industry.
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.
