Prospex 1965 diver
1965 Diver's Watch Reinterpretation 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. Available only in a limited edition run of 5,500, with the serial number engraved on each caseback, this versatile timepiece reimagines Seiko's 1965 first diver's watch, an automatic timepiece with a then exceptional water resistance of 150 meters. Offering an extraordinarily legible dial and durable enough to become standard equipment on the Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition (JARE), this landmark timepiece propelled Seiko into the forefront of dive watch design. With contemporary styling and upgraded specifications, this new reinterpretation reflects the look of the 1965 original, but with a sleeker and thinner case designed to fit more comfortably on the wrist. The blue-gray dial, shared with the 55th Anniversary trilogy and designed to suggest the ocean depths at the point at which blue yields to darkness, includes a date calendar and LumiBrite hands and markers, and is framed by a black one-way rotating elapsed timing bezel. Upgraded from the original, the 24-jewel automatic movement beats at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour, with a power reserve of approximately 70 hours, and can be wound manually or automatically. With an additional silicone strap included, this superbly functional timepiece, following ISO standards for scuba diving to depths of up to 200 meters, is crafted of stainless steel with super-hard coating, and features a dual-curved anti-reflective sapphire crystal, secure screwdown crown and caseback, and tri-fold push button release clasp with secure lock and extender. 200m Water Resistant.
