Seiko Prospex Save the Ocean Asia Special Edition SRPH43K1

Seiko Watch Corporation is pleased to announce the Seiko Prospex Save the Ocean Asia Special Edition inspired by the beautiful ocean and coral reefs will be available exclusively in Asia, Oceania, and the Middle East.

The case design of this special edition has been nicknamed by Seiko fans “SAMURAI” because of its angular shaped design. Its case and lugs are composed of sharp surfaces, that look as if they were sliced off with a Japanese sword and the powerful silhouette evokes a Samurai’s armor with protruding shoulders.

The dial and silicon strap reflects the blueness of the sea, and the bright orange accent is inspired by underwater coral reefs. A zirconia ceramic bezel is featured in this design series, and the combination of the vivid orange numerals and the ceramic bezel ensures both high legibility and durability.

Seiko Prospex Save the Ocean supports marine conservation activities in order to give back to the diver’s community.
We support the coral protection education program of EEC Thailand (Environmental Education Center Thailand), an environmental and social business organization in Thailand.

Grand Seiko Hi-Beat 36000 Limited Edition SBGJ253

Ever since the Grand Seiko Style was established with the 44GS in 1967, its design code has formed the cornerstone of every Grand Seiko timepiece. Today sees a limited edition of the modern re-interpretation design of the 44GS equipped with the Hi-beat 36000 GMT Caliber 9S86 to be released exclusively in Asia, Oceania, and the Middle East. This design series is where history, hand craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology converge. Like the twilight, or Tasogare in Japanese, the period of time between day and night, the gray Mt. Iwate pattern dial depicts the scenery when light and shadow coexist in an ever-changing tableau.

A unique gray dial with a Mt. Iwate pattern

The gray dial with the well-acclaimed Mt. Iwate pattern showcases the ridgelines of the magnificent mountain visible from the Grand Seiko Studio Shizukuishi where all Grand Seiko mechanical timepieces are made. It perfectly expresses the beauty of the mountain scenery under the gentle faint glow of the sun at dusk.

Sharp edges and soft lines. A perfect combination

Viewed from the front or side, the blending of sharp angles, brilliant surfaces and softly curved lines of the 44GS modern re-interpretation design presents an infinite range of expression through the interplay of light and shadow. Each watch is Zaratsu polished with extra care by hand by skilled craftsmen and women.
