Seiko adds the Prospex GMT Diver in Marine Green and Darkest Depths to their main collection.

Posted by Marketing PWM on

For a considerable time, Seiko has been at the forefront of providing accessible dive watches, excelling with an impressive array of sub divers that surpasses that of any other brand. Throughout the years, they have introduced numerous models, including the Sumo, the Turtle, and the more recent PADI collection, resulting in a vast catalog of references. Despite this extensive selection, one type was missing from their offerings: a mechanical Seiko Diver GMT. However, earlier this year, they finally filled that void with the introduction of the limited edition SPB385. Building upon the success of this limited-edition model, Seiko has now reimagined it as the non-limited Prospex GMT Diver Marine Green and Dark Depths, giving watch enthusiasts even more options to choose from.

The watches come with 42mm cases featuring prominent diving bezels, faceted lugs, and a 4 o'clock positioned crown. It's worth noting that calling them "watches" in plural might be slightly misleading, as they are essentially the same timepiece. The only distinction lies in their dial colors - one is adorned with a green hue, while the other boasts a black tone. As a result, they are named Marine Green and Dark Depths, respectively.



The GMT hand can be adjusted separately in one-hour intervals without disrupting the time-of-day hands, enabling the wearer to instantly view the time in a different time zone. With each new watch, the GMT hand is introduced along with enhanced features, such as 200 meters of water resistance, a highly visible Lumibrite-equipped dial, and a scratch-resistant ceramic unidirectional bezel. Furthermore, the automatic mechanical movement can operate continuously for three full days once fully wound.

Although the watch's design pays homage to its heritage, every element of this new timepiece is thoroughly modern in both specification and craftsmanship. The case design remains true to the 1968 original, with mirror-finished sides. Additionally, the unidirectionally rotating bezel ensures easy control.

The watch comes with a stainless-steel case featuring a super-hard coating, and it is complemented by a fresh three-link stainless steel bracelet. The slim profile of the bracelet ensures a secure and comfortable fit on the wrist.



Additionally, a limited-edition timepiece commemorates the 110th anniversary of Seiko's inaugural wristwatch in Japan. This special watch features a captivatingly intricate ice-blue dial, symbolizing the formidable influence of polar glaciers that mold the breathtaking landscapes and seascapes of the Arctic and Antarctic. Seiko's renowned reputation for producing dependable and long-lasting watches was established during the 1960s and '70s when explorers and scientists relied on them during expeditions to the North and South Poles.

The limited edition possesses the identical case and bracelet as the other two models, while distinguishing itself with an extra strap crafted entirely from recycled plastic bottles. This unique addition is the result of employing the traditional Japanese braiding technique known as Seichu.

In the world of horology, Seiko has once again showcased its mastery by answering the call of watch enthusiasts with the Prospex GMT Diver Marine Green and Dark Depths editions. Seamlessly merging heritage with innovation, these timepieces pay homage to the past while embracing the future. With their robust features, impeccable craftsmanship, and distinctive dials, they stand as a testament to Seiko's commitment to excellence. Whether exploring the depths of the ocean or crossing time zones with ease, these watches not only mark the passage of time but also celebrate the spirit of exploration and adventure that has defined Seiko for over a century.
