A modern tribute to Seiko's roots in polar exploration

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. This new Seiko Prospex 'Save the Ocean' Diver draws design inspiration from this period on the glaciers that these pioneers saw which shape the landscapes and seascapes of the Arctic and Antarctic. Its dial is inspired by a different shade of glacial ice, ranging from deep blue, to teal, to stark white. 

With contemporary styling and technology, this versatile timepiece reimagines Seiko's famed 1970 diver's watch, complete with the iconic case design that revolutionized underwater safety with a recessed crown creating a built-in crown guard at 4 o'clock. Inspired by the intricacies of glacial formation, this Special Edition is themed to evoke the ice of Arctic regions, including the North Pole, where legendary adventurers such as Naomi Uemura relied on Seiko diver's watches to meet every challenge, Today, it advances that unique history in support of the Seiko "Save the Ocean" campaign, dedicated to marine conservation. This masterfully updated design is crafted of stainless steel with super-hard coating, and includes a curved anti-reflective sapphire crystal, blue uni-directional rotating elapsed timing bezel, and screwdown crown and caseback. The patterned white dial features a date calendar and LumiBrite hands and markers. Following ISO standards for scuba diving to depths of up to 200 meters, this exceptional watch offers manual winding capability and includes a 24-jewel automatic movement with a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour and a power reserve of approximately 70 hours.
