A stealthy modern tribute to a legendary diver

Night diving is a great way to enjoy a completely different experience of the sea from that of diving in the daytime. Many divers are fascinated by the mysterious world of the ocean at night, making this recreational activity popular around the world. With this in mind, Seiko presents the Black Series of Prospex dive watches, which express the silence of the night ocean, with orange elements inspired by the lights that illuminate the darkness. Each Limited Edition reference in the series pays tribute to one of the brand's groundbreaking legacy dive watches. 

This reference SLA061 is characterized by a dial pattern which expresses the texture of sand on the sea bed. The orange seconds hand adds a subtle and quiet accent. The source material for this reference was launched in 1970, and has long been loved by fans around the world for its tough specifications and flowing case design with an asymmetrical extension protecting the crown at the four o'clock position. Inside the watch beats Seiko's Caliber 8L35, which was designed especially for diver's watches by the watchmakers at Shizukuishi Watch Studio in northern Japan.

Topside, the glass is a curved sapphire glass with an anti-reflective coating on the inside. The case sides are carefully polished and the watch is presented on a five row steel bracelet to create a modern sharp profile. In addition to its stainless steel bracelet, this Black Series reference is also offered with a silicon strap. It is limited to 1000 pieces.
