Prospex Marine Collection

Seiko’s Prospex Collection has established itself as one of the brand’s leading collections in barely two years since its international launch. Now, building on this success, a new Prospex marine collection has been launched, led by a Marinemaster watch that is the first watch, other than Astron, to incorporate Seiko’s unique GPS Solar technology.

Ocean yacht racer Kojiro Shiraishi has helped Seiko to create the new Marinemaster GPS Solar sailing watch1. Knowing the exact time and time zone at sea is vital so that communication with the team back home can be synchronized, even in the waters near the poles, where time zones change with far greater speed than at the Equator.

This new watch blends Seiko’s proven skill in building watches suitable for the most demanding environments with a new timing technology that ensures that, with one touch of a button, the watch adjusts to the exact local time anywhere on earth, on land or at sea, using just the power of light. Furthermore, the Dual-Time function allows an ocean sailor to know at a glance the time in his or her home port as well as local time.

The new Marinemaster GPS Solar is built for the harsh conditions that every ocean racer has to foresee. The case and bracelet are made of corrosion-resistant titanium, protected by a super-hard coating and a ceramic bezel. The watch is water resistant to 200 meters, with a screw-down case back and crown.

Excellent legibility in any weather, day or night, is ensured by the sapphire crystal coated inside and out to minimize glare and reflection, the wide, prow-shaped markers and Seiko’s latest Lumibrite coating. Complete ease of use was the designer’s next concern. The crown and buttons are easy to use, even when gloves are worn and the case and bracelet are shaped to avoid any edge catching a rope or line. This very special watch is offered in a limited edition of 1,500 units.
