1968 Automatic Diver’s Re-creation Limited Edition

Seiko's latest Prospex styles take the brand through its years of creating some of the most coveted dive watches around. One of the biggest stories of the collection is the tribute to their Automatic Diver from 1968, which has been recreated in a limited edition that features a one-piece case like the original and a Caliber 8L55 movement. It also features Zaratsu polishing on the lugs, a dual curved sapphire crystal, and polished markers at 12, 6, and 6 for optimal legibility underwater. 

Another tribute to the 1968 model includes a green-colored model inspired by the cedar trees on the island of Yakushima, Japan and two styles that take the 1968 styling into the present with a slim profile and a 6R15 movement. They're also celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the world's first quartz-powered professional diver's watch with two limited editions that feature titanium inner cases and zirconia ceramic protectors.
