PROSPEX 1968 DIVER
1968 Diver's Watch Recreation Limited Edition. Designed for those who treat life as the ultimate adventure, the Seiko Prospex line meets every challenge with technological excellence and style. Part of a rich legacy of innovation in high-intensity timekeeping, Prospex continues to celebrate a long history of sports watch excellence with recreations and reinterpretations of landmark achievements. Marking the 55th anniversary of Seiko's first diver's watch by recreating 1968's Hi-Beat, one-piece case, saturation diver, this extraordinary timepiece is available only in a limited edition of 1,100, with the serial number engraved on each caseback. Upgraded with a dual-curved anti-reflective sapphire crystal, it is crafted of Seiko's new Ever-Brilliant Steel, offering an exceptional level of corrosion resistance and a lighter, brighter finish. The rich blue-gray dial, designed to suggest the ocean depths at the point at which blue yields to darkness, features a date calendar and LumiBrite hands and markers. Following ISO standards for diving to depths of up to 300 meters, this saturation diver includes a black one-way rotating elapsed timing bezel, screwdown crown, and secure silicone strap, also in oceanic blue-gray. The proprietary hi-beat, 37-jewel, caliber 8L55 automatic movement, assembled expressly for diver's watches at the Shizukuishi Watch Studio, beats at a frequency of 36,000 vibrations per hour, with a power reserve of approximately 55 hours, and can be wound manually or automatically. 300m Water Resistant.
