July 23, 2021.- Seiko Watch of America has announced that it has become an official sponsor of Oceanic Society, America’s first ocean conservation non-profit. A leading manufacturer of diving watches through its high-intensity Prospex line, Seiko has long coupled the development of breakthrough technology for deep sea diving with activities to foster the protection and exploration of the world’s oceans.
Seiko will, at the same time, be continuing its other environmental initiatives, notably its sponsorship of Scuba Diving Magazine’s Sea Hero Awards, honoring those dedicated to preserving the oceans and marine life, and its work as an official partner of PADI, the world’s leading scuba diver training operation. In testament to its commitment to PADI, just last month the company announced that it will donate a portion of the proceeds from sales of the Seiko Prospex “Save the Ocean” themed models to support the PADI AWARE Foundation’s Marine Debris Program, an effort by over 70,000 divers to track seafloor debris for organizations dedicated to long-term waste management solutions.
Seiko Watch Corporation is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Seiko Holdings Corporation, which was stablished in 1881 and celebrates its 140th anniversary this year. As one of the few true “manufactures” that design, develop and produce all components of watches, including the hairspring of its mechanical movements, the company offers a series of collections available worldwide that incorporate traditional Japanese design combined with the very best of watchmaking technology in the Seiko, Grand Seiko and Credor brands.
