When Kintaro Hattori founded his company in 1881, he was just 21 years old. During his fifty years at the helm, Seiko became the leading watch company in Japan, with its own design and production facilities. This achievement was a direct result of his single-minded vision that Seiko should always be “one step ahead of the rest”. His words resonate still and continue to inspire Seiko today. In celebration of Seiko’s 140th anniversary, Kintaro’s vision is now realized in a series of four limited edition watches that, together, show the range of Seiko’s watchmaking expertise, from automatic to GPS Solar.

From Prospex to Astron GPS Solar. A wide spectrum of watchmaking expertise.

The four watches in this series share the same blue and silvery white livery but are all very different in design, technology and character. The Astron GPS Solar represents the pinnacle of high technology electronic watchmaking while the 6R64 automatic GMT caliber is traditional horology at its finest. The series also draws upon Seiko’s long tradition in sports watches. The Prospex watch is a modern re-interpretation of Seiko’s very first diver’s watch from 1965 while the Seiko 5 Sports creation symbolizes the extraordinary value that this series has offered to sports watch lovers for over half a century. All four watches will be available at the Seiko Boutiques and selected retailers worldwide in June 2021.

Prospex

A modern re-interpretation of Seiko’s first ever diver’s watch from 1965. The wide hands and generously applied Lumibrite deliver high visibility while the screw-down crown and caseback ensure 200 meter water resistance. The watch case and back are shaped to sit easily on the wrist. A limited edition of 6,000.

SPB213

Presage

The Presage Sharp Edged Series case and bracelet incorporate flat surfaces with sharp angles that allows the watch to sparkle from every angle. The case has a super-hard coating that protects the case and bracelet from scratches but also preserves its brilliance. The dial has an Asanoha or hemp leaf pattern that has been used for a thousand years and more in Japanese fabrics and architecture. The rich texture of the dial’s geometric pattern creates an infinite variety of shades at different angles as the light moves across it. The watch is powered by the automatic GMT caliber 6R64. A limited edition of 3,500.

SPB223

Astron

The case of this Astron GPS Solar creation has the same curved silhouette and the same wide case lugs as the Quartz Astron watch of 1969 that remains one of Seiko’s most celebrated technological achievements. The design is brought right up to date with the GPS Solar Dual-Time 5X53 Caliber that adjusts to the exact time anywhere* in the world, using just the power of light and offers several advanced features including high-speed time zone adjustment and a ‘Time Transfer’ function. The dial is a clean light silver color with blue accents, and the bezel is in blue ceramic. A limited edition of 1,400.

* If there are changes in the region / time zone / DST, manual selection may be required.

Seiko 5 Sports

The instantly familiar case houses a dial that, for the very first time for Seiko 5 Sports, is in
white. With this dazzling dial and the blue bezel and hands, the watch demands to be worn all
summer long. Seiko’s trusted automatic 4R36 caliber delivers the reliability for which the series
has long been celebrated. A limited edition of 11,000.
