In 1986, Seiko launched a diver's watch that set a new standard. It combined Seiko's legendary 1975 design with a 1,000 metre water resistance for saturation diving with a quartz movement that delivered an accuracy that no mechanical diver's watch could match. At the time, and still today, it was recognised as one of Seiko's most important diver's watches. Today, 35 years on, this classic Seiko Diver's watch is re-born with new design features and upgraded professional diver's watch specifications. This is a watch that truly lives up to the promise of the Prospex name.
The 1986 original. A quartz diver's watch made expressly for 1000m saturation diving.
The Spirit of Professional Diver's
It has the 1000m water resistance and helium resistance that saturation diving requires.
The dial colour has a gradation from blue to black to dramatise the way that light gradually fades as one dives deeper into the dark, mysterious world of the ocean.
It incorporates the unique one-piece titanium case with its outer protector structure that makes its shock resistance so exceptional.
The crown is marked with a vivid yellow 'Lock' sign and an arrow to indicate the rotating direction. The winding stem is also in yellow so that the wearer can immediately notice if the crown is unlocked.
The strength silicone strap ensures wearability both on a wetsuit and directly on the wrist. Each strap features the text "FOR SATURATION DIVING 1000m" in yellow.
The watch is offered with extra-strength silicone straps in both black and blue-grey colours.
*Tools in the image is not included.
It features a one-piece case construction and carries the individual watch's serial number on the case back.
The watch is equipped with quartz Calibre 7C46 which delivers a high level of torque so that it can move the powerful hands that are wide, robust and Lumibrite-coated for maximum legibility.
