Seiko Prospex Black Series 1968 Re-interpretation 2022

This Seiko Prospex Black Series 1968 Re-interpretation is a Limited Edition of just 5,500 pieces. Very popular since its inception and now in its fourth year of limited edition release, Seiko Prospex Black Series is inspired by the mysterious world of night diving. The 2022 Series has its roots in three key moments from Seiko’s diving heritage – 1965, 1968 and 1970. This particular design is a modern version of the 1968 timepiece.

1968

The 1968 Seiko Diver’s watch was the first hi-beat diving watch – an important milestone in Seiko’s six decades of innovation in diving watches. Its 10-beat high precision automatic calibre, one-piece structure, mono-directional rotating bezel and screw-down protection crown influenced Seiko diver’s watch development which has, for nearly 60 years, pushed back the frontiers of precision, durability and ease of use in watches for professional and recreational divers.

Case, Dial, Strap

Firstly, water resistant to 200 m/660 ft the 42mm case is in black stainless steel with a hard coating. Secondly, the black dial has high-visibility hour markers and hands coated in Lumibrite. Also, the minute hand and part of the bezel are orange, the colour of night divers’ lamps. Additionally, a legible minute track is at the extreme edge of the dial. Furthermore, a uni-directional turning bezel surrounds the dial. Furthermore, the watch is fitted with Seiko’s first ever original nylon strap for diver’s watches, the ‘SEICHU.” Made in Japan with a traditional texture pattern following the intricate design of Kimono belts, the strap is specifically designed for diving flexibility and durability. Moreover, the screw-down crown is at 4 o’clock for comfort when diving. Finally, an additional black silicone strap is supplied with the watch.

Equipped with an automatic 6R35 calibre movement, the Seiko Prospex Black Series 1968 Re-interpretation is a must for anyone looking for a well-built, practical Diver’s watch. A two year manufacturer’s warranty guarantees peace of mind.
