PROSPEX: Seiko Prospex challenges every limit, with a collection of timepieces for sports lovers and adventure seekers whether in the water, in the sky or on land. Since launching Japan’s first diver’s watch in 1965, Seiko’s innovative technology has changed global standards. We are constantly striving to bring ever greater reliability and safety to both professional and recreational divers.
SUMO- These watches are nicknamed by SEIKO fans as the ‘SUMO’ notable features in their design are the larger shaped bezel with is inset into a broader case. This look sits in contrast with the relatively narrow 20mm band. It is also said that the marker at 12o’clock loosely represents the ‘Mawashi’ the underwear worn by Japanese sumo wrestlers during a match. The sumo tends to be a heavy-duty watch and is ill-suited for someone with smaller wrists.
PADI- In 1966 when two American dive enthusiasts decided that the safety of diving training and standards needed to improve, they created the Professional Association of Diving Instructors. For over the last 50 years PADI has become the worlds most trusted diving organisation. Together SEIKO and PADI share a passion for ensuring the safety and enjoyment of divers and for protection of the marine environment.
This timepiece features a matte black dial with silver batons and hands with LumiBrite luminescent markers. The watch also features a red second hand and a date window. The case of the watch is 45mm case and is crafted from stainless-steel with a PADI signature, red and blue ‘pepsi’ diver’s bezel. The look of the watch is finished off with a matching stainless-steel band.
