Seiko Prospex 1970 Diver Save The Ocean Special Edition SPB301 Automatic (White Dial / 42.7mm)
42.7mm stainless steel case, automatic movement, white dial, stainless steel bracelet.
In 1970, Seiko introduced a diver's watch whose asymmetrical extension protected the crown at the four o'clock position. Its solid construction, luminous hands and indexes and 150 meter water resistance were perfect for those who required a timepiece with exceptional strength and visibility. The watch proved its reliability in extreme conditions when it was worn by the Japanese adventurer, Naomi Uemura, in the years 1974 to 1976 when he completed a 12,500km solo dog-sled run from Greenland to Alaska.
