Seiko's stature for reliable and durable diver's watches was forged in the 1960s and 1970's when they were selected by adventurers and researchers on expeditions to the north and south poles. Today, Seiko introduces into the Prospex collection modern re-interpretations of three legendary diver's watches from this period that draw their design inspiration from the glaciers that these pioneers saw and that shape the landscapes and seascapes of the Arctic and Antarctic. Each one has a dial that evokes a different shade of glacial ice, from deep blue to white.

The 1965 diver's watch incorporated an automatic mechanical calibre and delivered 150m water resistance. The watch was designed for maximum reliability and legibility in the harshest conditions. It proved its reliability when used in the Antarctic during the 60s and laid the path to the development of future landmark watches

The power and beauty of polar glaciers are captured perfectly in the intricately patterned dials. The rich heritage of the 1965 diver's watch is represented in the deep blue colour of the dial.

With strikingly intricate dial finishing, rugged construction, and icy colourways that harken back to the brand’s arctic exploration heritage, the three new models of the Seiko Prospex Save The Ocean Special Edition line offer an eye-catching tribute to one of the world’s most unforgiving environments.

The  three special edition models SPB297J1, SPB299J1 and SPB301J1 are expected to be available from Christies Jewellery in late June or early July
