For true watchmakers, adventure sports, whether on the sea, on land or in the sky, present the greatest challenges of all. Since Seiko made its first diving watch in 1965, Seiko has been exceeding the expectations of those whose sports require watches with truly professional specifications. Now, Seiko Prospex brings together all Seiko’s sports watch expertise in one collection.
From 1,278 timing devices in 1964 to pioneering in sports watch technology
In 1964, Seiko announced itself on the world stage of sports timing technology with a whole new generation of timing and scoring devices that set a new standard. The multi-sport suite of timing, scoring and display systems comprised no fewer than 1,278 devices in all. Ever since, the challenge of sports has inspired Seiko to create new technologies, new materials, new functions and new display systems to serve the needs of true sports enthusiasts worldwide.
In particular, Seiko pioneered several features in diver’s watches that are now widely accepted as setting the global standard, including the ‘accordion’ or corrugated style strap, the wide arrowshaped hands for extra legibility, and the two-piece case construction for added security. Similarly, in aviation watches, Seiko invented the trigonometric slide rule that allows pilots to make complex calculations in flight.
With its new Diver’s and Aviation watches, Prospex is the latest expression of this long tradition.
The Prospex Diver’s watch
The new Prospex Kinetic GMT Diver’s uses the same double case system as the legendary 1975 model, but it does so in a modernized and stylish way. As the name Prospex implies, it has a professional specification, with 200m water resistance, but it also has a design flair that makes it unique, as is clear from the window in the side of the outer case through which you can see the inner case.
The dial is designed uniquely with legibility in mind. The professional level of the specifications becomes clear when you study the details, the 3 dimensional hour markers, the anti-reflective coating on the sapphire crystal and the precise and secure operation of the uni-directional bezel.
The caliber is Kinetic, the perfect technology for diving as it combines 1 second a day precision with the certainty of Seiko’s unique no-battery-change Kinetic technology.
It is available with a steel bracelet or with a silicon strap, designed for strength, flexibility and longevity. The Kinetic GMT Diver’s is true to the Seiko tradition, but is updated with the very latest in design and technology.
The Prospex Aviation Solar Chronograph
The Prospex Aviation Solar Chronograph is a modern reinterpretation of a Seiko classic. In 1972, the Seiko Flight Computer set a new standard in aviation watches and began a tradition in this area that is today renewed with a solar aviation chronograph of high specifications.
The slide rule allows calculations of distance, fuel and oil consumption and speed, while the chronograph measures elapsed time for up to 60 minutes. Powered by light alone, this remarkable watch delivers what pilots need most, complete reliability throughout their flight.
Perfect timing and reliability on the sea, on land and in the sky
Adventure sports know no boundaries. Whether for use on the sea, on land or in the sky, the adventure sports enthusiast will find the Prospex watch that meets the challenge and delivers precision and reliability in even the most adverse conditions. Prospex is built to perform and built to last. The collection is broad in the range of sports watches it includes, incorporating all Seiko’s technologies, Kinetic, solar, quartz and mechanical, and in its price range, with models starting at 300 Euro and going up to 3,000 Euro for the 1000 meter saturation diving watch. Seiko Prospex is Seiko’s first new mainstream Elite collection for seven years and takes its place alongside Sportura and Velatura as an important new reference point in the world of sports watches.

Seiko GPS Solar caliber 8X82
The new Astron caliber shares all the core characteristics of the hugely successful caliber 7X52. Using just the power of light, it connects to the GPS network and tells time with atomic clock precision, adjusting at the touch of a button to every time zone on earth. In addition, the new caliber offers four new features that have been developed in response to ideas suggested by retail partners and customers worldwide. The new caliber does not replace the current one. It is an addition, designed to attract new consumers to the fast-growing world of Astron.
- Chronograph: The new caliber offers a 6 hour chronograph whose operation could not be more simple.
- Smaller: The new case size is 30% smaller, and the watches’ dimensions ( 44.6mm × 13.3mm) are now the same as most mainstream multi-function watches. This new size, which opens out many new design possibilities, has been achieved by a new advance in Astron’s energy-saving technology which allows the watch to connect to the GPS network with a smaller antenna.
- Easier: The simple ‘one-touch’ operation of the GPS function has not changed; just press one button for six seconds and Astron’s GPS function is activated. However, the secondary functions (manual time zone selection etc) have been made more accessible and more intuitive thanks to the new electronic setting function of the crown.
- More colors: The classic Astron black dial is available in the new design, but new color dials are now possible, thanks to a new dial with extremely high light penetration capacity. For 2014, blue and white dial versions are available.
The latest additions to its BABY-G line of shock-resistant watches for women. The new G-LIDE BGA-180 watches feature function, structure and design optimized for surfers and skateboarders. They were developed with input from top athletes. .
Casio BABY-G brand is based on a concept of Tough & Cool. While maintaining the toughness and shock-resistance of G-SHOCK in ladies’ size wristwatches, BABY-G combines a high level of functionality and fashion. The G-LIDE lineup of BABY-G watches is ideal for extreme sports, and is especially popular with active women.
While providing waterproof and shock-resistant performance ideal for surfing and skateboarding, the new G-LIDE BGA-180 watches are equipped with a tide graph that indicates the tide level using a surfboard-shaped hand, enabling the wearer to check surf conditions at a glance.
In addition to the tide graph shown in the inset dial at the 9 o’clock position, the ambient temperature is shown at the 4 and 5 o’clock positions. Ease of operation has also been enhanced through the use of a direct button that activates the tide graph and thermometer. Not only that, a three-dimensional design has been realized by layering the inset dial, LCD, and numerals for a watch face that is super easy to read. The fine resin protector, which is strong and also highly resistant to discoloration by UV rays and chemicals, absorbs shock to the reverse side while ensuring a comfortable fit.
The G-LIDE BGA-180 watches are available in four different colors. Evoking street fashion and the active lifestyle of Los Angeles, the new models come in vivid colors, with a look that is great on the beach and the streets.
The MT-G is the epitome of modern wrist couture.
This watch is a new addition to the MT-G lineup that combines metal and resin into attractive, high-function timepieces. This new model features a new Core Guard Structure that provides outstanding shock resistance. The metal bezel on the front of the watch and metal back cover create a frame that houses the inner workings to reduce the chance of impact force reaching the watch’s module. In addition, αGEL®* is used at points of contact on the bezel and back cover to further absorb impact. All of this is in addition to G-SHOCK‘s renowned Triple G Resist structure. The case and band surfaces are done to a hairline finish, while the beveled surfaces of parts are sallaz polished to a shiny finish. The large resin dial ring combines CASIO original cutting technology and new evaporation technology, which enable both light weight and outstanding shock resistant. The band of the watch is fitted with highly durable fine resin panels that deliver a great fit to the wrist along with light weight. *αGEL® is a material with silicone as its main component and featuring superior vibration-absorption capabilities. *αGEL® is a registered trademark of Taica Corporation in Japan, the United States and other countries.
