Seiko Prospex Has Introduced A New Mechanical GMT Diver’s Watch


Seiko’s Prospex diver’s watch collection has been a favorite among both professional and recreational divers worldwide since its first diver’s watch was introduced in 1965. Over the years, Seiko has continued to develop new technologies, features, and designs, pushing the boundaries of sports watches and diver’s watches. The brand has become a leader in diver’s watches through continuous enhancements in safety, reliability, legibility, and ease of use.

In their latest release, Seiko presents a new movement in the 6R family, the Caliber 6R54, with a GMT function and a power reserve extended to 72 hours. The new movement is featured in three modern reinterpretations of a Seiko classic from 1968. The GMT hand can be set independently, allowing the wearer to view the time in a second time zone without interrupting the time-of-day hands. All three watches are water-resistant to 200 meters and come with Lumibrite on the hands and all 12 markers. They also feature a unidirectional bezel with a luminous pip and are presented on a new three-link stainless steel bracelet with a slim profile that ensures a secure and comfortable fit.

The collection includes two classically styled watches in green and black, which join the main Prospex collection, as well as a limited-edition watch that commemorates Seiko’s 110th anniversary and Japan’s first wristwatch. This watch features an intricately textured ice-blue dial that captures the power of the polar glaciers that shape the landscapes and seascapes of the Arctic and Antarctic. Seiko’s reputation for reliable and durable watches was forged in the ’60s and ’70s when adventurers and researchers wore them on expeditions to the North and South Poles.

The limited edition watch is part of the Save the Ocean series, which supports Seiko Prospex’s mission to contribute to a greater understanding of the world’s oceans and their preservation. It comes with an additional strap made entirely of recycled plastic bottles and created using the traditional Japanese braiding technique called Seichu. All three watches will be available from June 2023 at Seiko Boutiques and select retail stores worldwide.
