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 600, 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 environment. 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.
