Seiko Reissues Their Iconic 1968 Automatic Diver’s Watch

Although you might think them a relatively young brand, Seiko has actually been around since 1881. That also means, in regards to their timekeepers, that they’ve got a solid catalog of classic watches from bygone eras. One such watch, the 1968 Prospex Automatic Diver’s, is now getting a limited-edition re-release.

There are some noteworthy differences between this reissue and the original. For instance, it’s now equipped with a 37-jewel calibre 8L55 movement with a 55-hour power reserve, as well as the ability to survive depths of up to 300 meters. Stylistically, however, this dive watch is as classic and iconic as ever — boasting a coated stainless steel case with its signature flat caseback, a beautiful unidirectional dive timer bezel, and a durable-yet-comfortable silicone band. Limited to just 1,500 examples, this beautiful wristwatch is available now for $5,400.

Purchase: $5,400
