About the Seiko SPB297 or SPB297J1

1965 Diver's Watch Re-interpretation Save the Ocean Special Edition. Designed for those who treat life as the ultimate adventure, the Seiko Prospex line meets every challenge with technological excellence and style. Part of a rich legacy of innovation in high-intensity timekeeping, Prospex continues to celebrate a long history of sports watch excellence with re-creations and re-interpretations of landmark achievements. Updated with today's technology and materials, and a sleeker and thinner profile, this rugged timepiece reimagines Seiko's 1965 first diver's watch, an automatic timepiece with a then exceptional water-resistance of 150 meters. Offering an extraordinarily legible dial and durable enough to become standard equipment on the Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition (JARE), this landmark watch propelled Seiko into the forefront of dive watch design. Inspired by the intricacies of glacial formation, this Special Edition advances that unique history in support of the Seiko "Save the Ocean" campaign, dedicated to marine conservation. The patterned deep blue dial, reflecting the thickness of glacier ice, offers a date calendar and LumiBrite hands and markers, and is framed by a black uni-directional rotating elapsed timing bezel. With a power reserve of approximately 70 hours, the 24-jewel automatic movement beats at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour and provides the manual winding capability. Crafted of stainless steel with super-hard coating, this superbly functional timepiece features a curved sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on the inner surface, and a screw-down crown and case back, and follows ISO standards for scuba diving to depths of up to 200 meters. 200m Water Resistant

Luxury Watches Luxury Watches Are Lifestyle Accessories A true luxury watch is a symbol of prestige, power, and wealth. While certain brands continually produce a myriad of lines and models, notable premium watchmakers like Rolex keep production low in order to focus on their exquisite quality. Luxury Watches Are Built to Last Aside from obvious engineering and precision differences, collectors would be hard-pressed to find a moderately priced watch that runs strong a year or two after its initial purchase, let alone for a lifetime. Meanwhile, luxury watches are meticulously crafted to a level of mechanical excellence that ensures they can be true heirloom pieces that are passed down from generation to generation. Some luxury watches can take years to produce, which is a true testament to the level of quality that collectors should expect. From effortless movement to precise construction and timeless design, the measure of true luxury watches is their staying power.

Product Care -Clean with a soft cloth or a soft bristled toothbrush and soapy water
