Seiko's inaugural diver's watch emerged in 1965, boasting 150m water resistance and an automatic movement. It earned acclaim during the 8th Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition in 1966, solidifying its reputation for excellence. This prompted the same team to select Seiko's diver's watches for their missions from 1966 to 1969, culminating in the groundbreaking 1968 model with 300m water resistance and a Hi-beat automatic movement.

In 2023, Seiko introduces a contemporary rendition of this iconic 1968 diver's watch in their Prospex collection. While honoring its heritage in design, the timepiece showcases cutting-edge diver's watch technology. It features a dual-gradient textured blue dial, inspired by the intricate patterns of underwater cave walls illuminated by a diver's torch. The crown is ingeniously secured in a separate component within the case for enhanced durability and easier replacement.

The heart of the watch is the Caliber 8L35, purpose-built for diver's watches and meticulously crafted by artisans at the Shizukuishi Watch Studio in northern Japan. Its robustness and precision guarantee superior performance in the harshest conditions, whether on land or beneath the waves. Seiko's latest offering embodies a harmonious blend of heritage and innovation, reaffirming their commitment to producing top-tier diver's timepieces.
