Seiko Prospex Glacier ‘Save the Ocean’ 1968 Re-Interpretation SPB299J1
This specific design is inspired by Seiko’s 1968 Diver’s 300m watch – the first and highest of world standard hi-beat calibre diver’s – an important milestone in Seiko’s six decades of innovation in diving watches. It was worn for the first Japanese summit of Mount Everest.
This ‘Save the Ocean’ Glacier Special Edition, inspired by the ice of Antarctica, expresses the accumulation of time – linking the Antarctic history of Seiko diver’s watches with the time it takes for a glacier to form into its beautiful structure. The dial pattern and colour express the natural formations and pressure the glacier underwent during its long cooling period. Glaciers formed during the ice age, approximately 150 to 3 million years ago.
Prospex is a combination of the words ‘Professional’ and ‘Specifications.’ These timepieces are designed to be practical, reliable and durable within extreme or everyday environments, for experts, sports lovers and adventure seekers alike. Since launching Japan’s first diver’s watch in 1965, Seiko’s innovative watchmaking has changed global dive watch standards.
Seiko donates proceeds from Save The Ocean models to the PADI Aware Foundation’s Marine Debris programme, the world’s largest underwater clean-up initiative.
Seiko began as a clock repair store in Tokyo in 1881 with a purpose to pursue watchmaking excellence and has grown into a global timekeeping presence. Renowned for horological innovation, Seiko timepieces deliver precisely beautiful Japanese aesthetics, brought to life through in-house manufacture.
