AN EXCEPTIONAL DIVING COMPANION


An exceptional diving watch…with a hint of nostalgia…. Seiko’s and Japan’s first ever diver’s watch was made in 1965 at a time when watches with high levels of water resistance were not widely available. This new introduction, the Prospex recreation of the 1965 classic is faithful to the
original design, but thoroughly up-to-date in its technology. The first striking thing you will notice about it is the cool dial with a colour gradation from blue to black. The dial also features a wave pattern. Quite in sync with underwater style!

The 42.6 mm diver’s watch is from the Prospex collection. It has the Seiko 6R15 (automatic) movement which has a power reserve of 50 hours. The watch has a screw-down crown and caseback, to ensure the 200 meters of water resistance. Sapphire crystal has been used for this special edition. As one would expect from a good diver’s watch, the precise and secure operation of the unidirectional bezel
prevents accidental rotation, so that the time measured is never shorter than the actual elapsed time.

The dial and hands uses Lumibrite material in two different colors (blue and green). The minute hand and the hour markers at 12, 9 and 6 as well as the dot on the bezel have
a blue lume color, while the hour hand and remaining hour markers lume in green. The dial design has just one objective; maximum legibility, even deep in the ocean
where sunlight does not penetrate. The hour markers are large, so as to allow the maximum surface area and depth for Seiko’s Lumibrite coating. The hands, too, are wide
and easy to read. The watch comes with a silicon strap.

A perfect underwater companion!
