Seiko Gents Prospex Alpinist ‘Ginza’ 140th Anniversary Bracelet Watch
The design of this watch commemorates 140 years since Seiko began as a watch and clock shop in Ginza, Tokyo in Japan.
The Presage style 60's collection of watches are practical and modern with a vintage 1960 look. This range is inspired by the design of Japan's first ever chronograph watch which was originally created by Seiko in 1964.
The 'paved' pattern dial is inspired by the western style stone street patterned areas in Ginza. The blue-grey 'Kkonparu-iro' dial colour represents both todays Ginza area of the reflections of the sky in the glass cityscape and one of Japans cultural colours.
This watch style and shape is inspired by the original Seiko 'Alpinist' which was first launched in 1959 exclusively for the Japanese market which is said to be reliable in treacherous terrain for the mountain men.
This model is powered by the automatic 6R movement with lumibrite on the dial and hands which makes it easy to see in any light.
Prospex is a combination of 'Professional' and 'Specification' words and these timepieces are designed to be practical, reliable and durable to meet the standards required by Sports lovers and adventure seekers.
