PROSPEX 1968 HERITAGE DIVER'S LIMITED EDITION

1968 Heritage Diver's 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 re-creations and re-interpretations of landmark achievements. Recalling Seiko's part in the Japanese Antarctic Research Expeditions (JARE), this exceptional timepiece is available only in a limited edition of 1,300, with the serial number engraved on each caseback. A portion of the limited edition will be donated to contemporary researchers, including those dedicated to saving the endangered polar ice sheets suggested by the blue gradated dial. Re-interpreting Seiko's renowned 1968 diver's watch, with updated technology, sleeker lines and fine Zaratsu polishing, this extraordinary watch is crafted of Seiko's Ever-Brilliant Steel, offering an exceptional level of corrosion resistance and a lighter, brighter finish. The caliber 8L35 26-jewel automatic movement, crafted at Seiko's Shizukuishi watch studio with the increased torque necessary for diving, beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, with a power reserve of approximately 50 hours, and provides manual winding capability. Following ISO standards for scuba diving to depths of up to 200 meters, this superbly functional watch includes a date calendar, LumiBrite markers and hands for enhanced legibility, dual-curved anti-reflective sapphire crystal, screwdown crown and caseback, black uni-directional rotating elapsed timing bezel with LumiBrite indicators, and a black silicone strap, as well as an additional blue Seichu fabric diver's strap. Packaged in a Limited Edition collectors' box. 200m Water Resistant
