Seiko Prospex, For Divers Only

Seiko Prospex PADI Special

Japanese Watch Company Seiko has just announced 2 Prospex special edition dive watches in partnership with PADI, the world’s largest diving network.

PADI™ (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) is the world’s most trusted scuba diving training organization. With over 6,300 Dive Centers and more than 136,000 qualified PADI professional instructors around the world, PADI has issued an amazing 24 million certifications and has done more than any other organization to introduce diving to the world.

Seiko and PADI share a passion for ensuring the safety and enjoyment of divers and for protection of the marine environment, so a partnership felt very right. Seiko is proud to announce its support to PADI and, in particular, its ‘Project Aware’ initiative. Project AWARE™ is a global movement of scuba divers coming together to protect our oceans – one dive at a time. Project AWARE empowers thousands of divers in more than 180 countries to work together for clean, healthy and abundant oceans.

To celebrate and promote this partnership, two Prospex PADI Special Editions will be released this autumn. One model uses Seiko’s unique Kinetic caliber, which, powered solely by the movement of the wearer’s body, offers both precision and security to the diver. This model uses the same two-layer case construction as the legendary 1975 model, but it does so in a modern way.

The second Prospex PADI model has a case and dial design that is also a reminder of a classic, the 1970’s Seiko 150m mechanical diver’s. Famous for its unique shaped case, wide and clear hands and indexes, this watch is now widely collected and still has many admirers throughout the world. Both special models feature PADI’s characteristic red and blue color on the dials and the bezels, and the PADI logo on the dials.
