Seiko’s pioneering diver’s watch from 1965 was a watershed moment not only for the company but also for Japan. It immediately established a reputation for dependability and originality as the country’s first diver’s watch. During their expeditions from 1966 to 1969, members of the Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition depended on its automated movement and outstanding water resistance of 150 meters.

The SJE093’s water resistance of up to 200 meters ensures dependability for diving and water activities. The strap, which pays homage to the original design, is made of high-strength silicone and provides both durability and comfort. Furthermore, the hands and all 12 markers, including the one by the date window and the pip on the unidirectional bezel, are filled with Lumibrite, which improves legibility in low-light circumstances.
