SEIKO PROSPEX 3 Diver's Modern Re-interpretation Save the Ocean Special Editions

Posted by Marketing PWM on

Seiko's reputation for dependable and long-lasting diver's watches was established in the 1960s and 1970s, when they were chosen by explorers and scientists on trips to the north and south poles. Today, Seiko adds three iconic diver's watches from this era into the Prospex line, drawing design inspiration from the glaciers that these pioneers observed and that form the landscapes and seascapes of the Arctic and Antarctic. Each features a dial that depicts a distinct color of glacier ice, ranging from deep blue to white.

The diver's watch from 1965 had an automated mechanical calibre and water resistant to 150 metres. The watch was created to be as reliable and legible as possible in the roughest situations.

Deep Blue Dial

The beautifully patterned dials wonderfully represent the majesty and beauty of arctic glaciers. The dial's deep blue tint reflects the rich tradition of the 1965 diver's watch.

Seiko's first watch with 300m water resistance and a 10-beat automatic mechanism was the groundbreaking 1968 diver's. With a one-piece construction, a one-way rotating bezel, and a screw-down protective crown.

In 1970, Seiko released a diver's watch with an asymmetrical extension that protected the crown at four o'clock. Its sturdy construction, bright hands and indexes, and water resistance to 150 metres made it ideal for anyone who needed a clock with great strength and visibility.

White Dial

A white dial depicting the Artic frozen seascape is housed in the same distinctively formed case as the 1970 classic, which demonstrated its strength and endurance when worn by Japanese explorer Naomi Uemura.
