Unravel the polar environment

Support the polar research by
the National Institute of Polar Research

The National Institute of Polar Research is the only research institute in Japan that comprehensively studies science related to the Antarctic and the Arctic. Research on various natural phenomena observed in polar regions, especially research on global environmental changes represented by global warming in recent years, is very important for future prediction that will have a great impact on human society.
In the past, Seiko has provided various products, including diver's watches, to the Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition, in which NIPR plays a role as the core institution of scientific research of polar regions in Japan. The provision of products with them has made it possible to collaborate for the first time in about half a century. Seiko Prospex will support global environmental change research through support for the National Institute of Polar Research.

Protecting underwater resources

Fournoi Underwater Survey and Excavation Project in Greece

Underwater archaeology is generally focused on the study of archeological sites underwater and aims to explore their history while protecting cultural heritage from treasure hunters and preserving their history for future generations. In the 2015-2019 research of the Greek island of Fournoi in the Aegean Sea, as many as 58 historically significant shipwrecks were discovered.
In 2021, underwater excavation of a sunken ship from the 4th century A.D., began. The ship was located at a well-preserved depth of 45 meters, and the excavation aimed to uncover the maritime trading system in the Mediterranean when the center of Western civilization shifted from the Western Roman Empire to the Eastern Roman Empire (Byzantine Empire).
As part of the Save the Ocean initiative, Seiko Prospex supports underwater archaeological research on the Greek island of Fournoi.

December 3rd, 2021 Zushi-city, Kanagawa, Japan

As part of the Seiko Prospex Save the Ocean activity, PADI Asia Pacific Japan and Seiko Watch Corporation worked together on the “Dive Against Debris®” to remove and collect data on underwater debris.
It is estimated that over 70% of marine debris sinks to the ocean floor, and the program is a step towards solving this dire problem. We also conducted beach cleanup activities on Zushi Beach, making it a valuable day to raise awareness on marine conservation activities.
