1965 DIVER'S MODERN RE-INTERPRETATION
Prospex 1965 Diver's Modern Re-Interpretation
JAPAN’S FIRST EVER DIVER’S WATCH.Fifty-five years ago, Seiko introduced its and Japan's first-ever diver's watch. It incorporated an automatic mechanical caliber and delivered 150m water resistance. The watch was designed for maximum reliability and legibility in the harshest conditions and was used by the Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition from 1966 to 1969. In the years that followed, Seiko created many other diver's watches that found favor with professional divers and adventurers alike, thanks to their high quality and reliability.
The Prospex re-interpretation of the 1965 classic is faithful to the original design, but fully up to date in specifications and execution. The watch has a box-shaped sapphire crystal and 200m water resistance for greater reliability. Durability is also enhanced by Seiko’s super-hard coating, which protects the watch from scratches.
