PROSPEX "1968 DIVER'S MODERN RE-INTERPRETATION SAVE THE OCEAN SPECIAL EDITION" SPB299J1
Seiko's reputation for reliable and durable diver's watches was forged in the 1960's and 1970's when they were chosen by adventurers and researchers on expeditions to the north and south poles. Today, Seiko introduces into the Prospex collection modern re-interpretations of three legendary diver's watches from this period that draw their design inspiration from the glaciers that these pioneers saw and that shape the landscapes and seascapes of the Arctic and Antarctic. Each one has a dial that evokes a different shade of glacial ice, from deep blue to white.
1968 Original model
The landmark 1968 diver's was Seiko's first watch with 300m water resistance and a 10-beat automatic movement. With a one-piece structure, a mono-directional rotating bezel and screw-down protection crown, this timepiece pushed back the frontiers of precision, durability and ease of use in watches for professional and recreational divers
Light Blue Dial
A light blue dial and a darker blue bezel grace the new modern re-interpretation of the landmark 1968 diver's watch. The dial and bezel colors evoke the magnificent landscape of Antarctica.
