Seiko unveils Prospex Special Edition to celebrate joining PADI initiative to protect oceans

Seiko announced that it is tying up with the Professional Association for Diving Instructors (PADI) in their ‘Project Aware' initiative. Project Aware s a global movement of scuba divers coming together to protect our oceans - one dive at a time. Project Aware empowers thousands of divers in more than 180 countries to work together for clean, healthy and abundant oceans.

To celebrate this association and to promote the message of the partnership Seiko is unveiling two Prospex PADI Special Edition timepieces. One uses Seiko's unique Kinetic calibre, which, powered solely by the movement of the wearer's body, offers both precision and security to the diver. This model uses the same two-layer case construction as the legendary 1975 model, but it does so in a modern way.

The second Prospex PADI model has a case and dial design that is also a reminder of a classic, the 1970's Seiko 150m mechanical diver's. Famous for its unique shaped case, wide and clear hands and indexes, this watch is now widely collected and still has many admirers throughout the world. Both special models feature PADI's characteristic red and blue colour on the dials and the bezels, and the PADI logo on the dials.

Since the launch of its first diver's watch in 1965, Seiko has brought to professional divers a stream of innovative new technologies and designs that have made diving safer and easier for the professional and recreational diver alike. These innovations include the world's first titanium diver's watch in 1975, the first diver's watch with a ceramic outer case in 1986 and the first Nitrox Dive Computer watch in 2000. Thanks to these advances and to the supreme quality of our diver's watches, Seiko has earned a high reputation of trust in the diving community.

By a strange co-incidence, a few months after Seiko's first diver's watch appeared two American dive enthusiasts decided that standards of training in diving needed to be raised and founded the Professional Association of Diving Instructors. Over the past fifty years, PADI has become the world's most trusted scuba diving training organization. With over 6,300 Dive Centres and more than 136,000 qualified PADI professional instructors around the world, PADI has issued an amazing 24 million certifications and has done more than any other organization to introduce diving to the world.
