Seiko Prospex 140th Anniversary "Island Green" Limited Edition Series

Posted by RAYMOND MA on

Seiko will release a series of creations that embody the spirit of Kintaro's words and honour the 140th anniversary of the founding of his company. The celebrations start with a series of Prospex, Presage and Astron watches inspired by the landscapes, seascapes of Japan.

From Seiko Prospex, a new series focuses on the beauty of nature. The watches capture the deep green scenery of the rich ocean that surrounds Iriomote Island. The island of Iriomote in Okinawa Prefecture attracts divers from all areas of the world. Its abundant coral reefs teem with marine life but the island's special charm lies in the primeval and pristine mangrove forests that surround it.

Further, Iriomote is home to several species of flora and fauna that are rare and, in some instances, unique to the island.
