Description

This limited automatic chronograph celebrates Seiko’s proud tradition of time measurement and draws inspiration from the first automatic chronograph with a column wheel and vertical clutch released in 1969.

The watch is based on a much loved design from that era that became known among Seiko’s fans as the ‘Panda’ thanks to the two black sub-dials set against the white dial. It has the same hairline finish on the dial as the original, the same hands with the same orange tip to the chronograph second hand and the same hour markers and tachymeter bezel markings.

Of course, every detail of this timepiece is upgraded; the movement is the 8R48 with its 12 hour chronograph and 45 hour power reserve, the crystal is sapphire with anti-reflection coating on the inner surface and the lugs are Zaratsu polished.

Seiko Prospex watches are designed for sports lovers and adventure seekers 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.
