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.
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.
The new contemporary re-interpretation of the historic 1968 diver's watch features a light blue dial and a deeper blue bezel. The dial and bezel hues are inspired by Antarctica's stunning environment.
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.
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.
