Fabien Cousteau, the new partner of Seiko Prospex

Replica Seiko is pleased to announce a new partnership with the distinguished ocean explorer and marine conservationist, Fabien Cousteau. Like his celebrated grandfather, Fabien has dedicated his life to exploring the oceans and to promoting their health. Seiko greatly admires his tireless advocacy of the need for the oceans to be protected from the damaging effects of human activity and climate change.

We are looking forward to working with Fabien through both traditional and on-line media initiatives focused on the Prospex diver’s watch collection. Furthermore, Seiko will contribute to the work of the Fabien Cousteau Ocean Learning Center, an institution that Fabien created to make a direct and positive contribution to the health of the oceans.

Central to this shared initiative is a new, dedicated Replica Seiko Prospex Instagram account which will feature Fabien’s activities, adventures and discoveries. We will also invite divers, environmentalists and marine specialists from all over the world to contribute their stories, experiences and ideas for the future. Our aim is that this becomes a valued resource for lovers of the oceans worldwide.

In all he does, Fabien seeks to expand the world’s knowledge of the importance of the health of the seas. With past projects like ‘Mission 31’ (see below), Fabien challenges us all to look afresh at the marine world and Seiko is proud to be part of Fabien’s adventures today and in the future. Seiko Prospex and Fabien Cousteau. A partnership of exciting potential.

As the first grandson of Jacques-Yves Cousteau, Fabien spent his early years aboard his famous grandfather’s ships. He learned how to scuba dive on his fourth birthday and inherited his family’s passion for the oceans. Fabien has a distinguished record as a writer, speaker and broadcaster about the oceans and the need for their protection from degradation. Fabien is perhaps best known for his study of sharks. From 2000 to 2002, Fabien was an Explorer-at-Large for National Geographic and collaborated on a TV special aimed at changing public conceptions about sharks called, “Attack of the Mystery Shark,”. In 2003-2006, he produced a documentary, “Mind of a Demon,” about sharks that aired on CBS in the USA. For the next four years (2006-2010), Fabien contributed to a multi-hour series for PBS called “Ocean Adventures” with his father, Jean-Michel Cousteau. In June 2014, Fabien and his team embarked on Mission 31, the longest ever scientific expedition in Aquarius, the world’s only underwater marine laboratory, located off the coast of Florida. Today, Fabien works with many marine charities, focusing especially on working with local communities and children worldwide to help restore local water ecosystems. In 2016, he founded the Fabien Cousteau Ocean Learning Center to make a direct and positive contribution to the health of the oceans.

japanese beauty from ginza

Ginza continues to fascinate the world.

Inspired by this city where tradition and the latest trends meet, the timepieces of this new collection mark the passing of time, celebrating the timelessness of SEIKO beauty.

Under the concept “Japanese Beauty from GINZA,” 
colors rich in emotion and based on traditional Japanese aesthetics 
are featured over the entirety of each watch.

Deep red “Kurenai” is the color of confidence that draws on feminine charm, 
embracing the heart’s passion.

“Gofun,” the color of powdered seashell used in elegant Japanese cosmetics, 
features a beautiful white look.

“Ruri-iro,” the color of the deep blue evening sky, 
beautifully embellishes the wrist.

Graceful grey “Aoshiro-tsurubami” is a chic and polished blend of classic and modern, 
evoking the image of cobblestones of Ginza’s back streets.

“Sakura-iro,” representing a delicate pink color of spring, 
is a lasting homage to ephemeral beauty.

The color of the dial is inspired by the pale light “Tsukishiro” 
that heralds the rising of the moon and resembles the city lights of Ginza.
Its light illuminates shadows with various expressions, 
releasing the heart into refined serenity, and enriching it.

  • The bezel has 55 diamonds and the dial has eight diamonds.
  • The unique and distinguished look of the strap is made possible by a special, two-stage dyeing method known as “Tani-zome.” The leather is first dyed white, and then the grooves in the pattern are dyed light blue.

The brilliant expressions of the multilayered dial of each timepiece change based on reflected light. They reveal hues from the traditional Japanese concept of color, portraying the transient and subtle beauty of nature.

Each model displays a unique patterning thanks to its shiny and deeply bright color overlaid on a white mother of pearl base. A magnificent flower motif occupies the center of the dial while the eight diamonds on the index add an elegant sparkle. Along with the leather strap colorfully finished even on the reverse side, each timepiece gorgeously decorates the wrist.

The multifaceted case catches the light and sparkles, making the wrist shine beautifully.
The soft texture of the strap fits comfortably on the skin and has different colors on the front and back sides, depending on the model.

The new Lukia series is powered by Seiko’s latest automatic caliber, 6R35, which delivers a power reserve of 70 hours. It can be seen through the sapphire case back, marking time at 21,600 beats per hour.

Seiko Lukia Review

Seiko Lukia. The glamour of Ginza. The refinement of Japan.

Soon after Japan opened its doors to the world in the second half of the 19th century, the Ginza
district in central Tokyo became its showcase. When Japan’s first railway opened in 1872, its
Tokyo terminus was at the edge of Ginza which rapidly became the center for shops selling
all that was new and fashionable. It was soon also the hub of the media business and home
to the many cafés and bars that were the new meeting places for artists and writers. Today,
Ginza remains synonymous with all that is glamorous and exciting about Tokyo and is, in many
respects, Japan’s window on the world. Ginza is also home to Seiko. Seiko was established
in Ginza in 1881 and the Seiko clock that sits atop the Wako store, where Seiko was long
headquartered, is a much-loved Ginza landmark.

Lukia. Capturing the spirit of Ginza.

The new Seiko Lukia collection celebrates the glamour, vivacity and refinement of today’s Ginza.
Since 1995, Lukia has been adorning the wrists of discerning women in Japan and it is now, for
the first time, available outside of Asia. The collection comprises six creations, each of which has
a dial featuring a traditional Japanese color overlaid on a mother-of-pearl base with a flower
motif and eight diamond hour markers. Each dial is colored from both sides, which allows the
full richness of the color to blend harmoniously with the texture of the mother-of-pearl dial.
The case offers a soft, delicate feeling on the wrist thanks to its perfectly rounded edges.

Five of the six new creations will be available from July 2020, with a limited edition to follow
in September. All will be available in selected Seiko Boutiques.

Powered by life. Crafted to be enjoyed.

The new Lukia series is powered by Seiko’s latest automatic caliber, 6R35, which delivers a power
reserve of 70 hours. It can be seen through the sapphire case back, marking time at 21,600 beats
per hour. Each watch is water resistant to 10 bar and has a sapphire crystal that is resistant to
scratches. Lukia is built to be enjoyed every day, in every situation.

Gofun. Made from powdered seashell, it is now used Kabuki cosmetics.
One of Japan’s most famous Kabuki theaters is located in Ginza.

To celebrate the arrival of Lukia on the international stage, a special watch is offered in a
limited edition of just 250. Its dial is the color, Tsukishiro, of the blue-white evening sky that
frames the Ginza skyline as the moon is about to appear. It has 55 diamonds on the bezel and
eight diamonds on the dial. The unique and distinguished look of the strap is made possible
by a special, two-stage dyeing method. After the leather is first dyed white, the grooves in the
pattern are then dyed light blue.

Seiko Presage

Replica Seiko Presage Fine Mechanical Watches from Japan, More than 100 years ago, Seiko produced the first wristwatch made in Japan. The tradition of Seikos’s craftsmanship was born.

Presage combines a Japanese aesthetic sense with traditional craftsmanship and Seiko’s mechanical watchmaking skills in an original collection that offers Japanese . Replica Seiko Presage, which has inherited Seiko’s watchmaking tradition, will release a limited-edition model that pays homage to the design of the Crown Chronograph. In acknowledgment of the year of the Crown Chronograph’s release, 1964, the number of watches will be limited to 1964 units.

Replica Seiko is one of the few fully integrated watch manufactures. We design and develop our own movements using leading-edge technology. The Presage, like the original Cocktail Time, is 40mm, and wears exactly as a 40mm dress watch should. A large push-pull crown signed with the Seiko “S” adds to the vintage vibe, as does the high-domed Hardlex crystal. I would personally prefer sapphire for durability’s sake, but this watch is not a beater by any stretch of the imagination.

Seiko Watch Astron GPS Solar Edition Limitée SAST001 Titanium – Black Hard Coating – Ceramic

Seiko Astron. The world’s first GPS solar watch.

The watch that understands time zones.

At last, the search for totally precise time, everywhere on the planet, is over. By developing our own, patented, low-energy-consumption GPS receiver, Seiko has been able to create a watch that can receive GPS signals and identify time zone, time and date data using the global network of GPS satellites.  It recognizes all the 39 time zones on earth. This breakthrough timepiece is called Seiko Astron. Like its celebrated 1969 predecessor which was the world’s first quartz watch, the new Seiko Astron ushers in a new age of timekeeping technology. Seiko Astron will be released simultaneously in all markets of the world this autumn. Could this be the most intelligent watch ever built’

Accurate time, anywhere on earth.

Once a day, Seiko Astron receives the time signal automatically and, on demand, connects to four or more of the GPS satellites that orbit the earth, thus pinpointing its position and identifying the time zone and the exact time. The hands adjust automatically to the correct local time with Atomic Clock precision. The new Seiko Astron is solar powered, so never needs a battery change, and it also has a perpetual calendar, so the date will always be as accurate as the time.

A complete collection, with innovation in every detail

Seiko Astron is not just a watch. It’s already a collection. In commemoration of the launch, a unique piece has been created and is offered in a limited edition of 2,500, with a high-intensity titanium case and ceramic bezel.  The recessed sides of the case ensure that it is as light as it is robust. The case’s high-intensity titanium is as strong as steel but has only 60% of its weight. It is accompanied by an additional extra-strength silicon strap that is four times stronger than any previous strap of this material.

There are three other models in high-intensity titanium and two in stainless steel. All have the same functions and high specifications, including a dual time sub-dial, in-flight mode indicator and sapphire crystal with Super-Clear Coating*.

The elegance and legibility of the dials disguise the richness of the information that can be displayed. In addition to the traditional date and dual time displays, the status of the GPS signal is indicated by the second hand and indicator at 10 o’clock position when the appropriate button is pressed. At a glance, you see whether a GPS signal has been received, and from how many satellites and whether Daylight Saving Time is activated.

The secret is in energy management

Why now and why Seiko’ To combine Seiko’s solar technology with GPS required years of painstaking and ground-breaking R&D which has resulted in no less than 100 patent applications. Only Seiko’s advanced energy-efficiency technology could invent the miniature GPS receiver that requires so little energy to receive GPS signals from four or more satellites. Only Seiko’s unrivalled skills in micro-engineering could package this technology into a watch that is just 47 mm in diameter and weighs about 135 grams (with  high intensity titanium case and bracelet).  And only Seiko’s advanced IC circuitry expertise could make it possible for the watch to divide the world into one million ‘squares’ and allocate a time zone to each. 

Convenient, simple and easy to wear.

Replica Seiko Astron watch may be intelligent, but to wear it is a simple joy. If you step off a plane, just press the button and the time zone adjustment is automatic. It takes just six seconds for the time to self-correct (to one second every million years!) and just 30 seconds for the location, and the adjustment takes place whether you are stationary or on the move. So, if you can see the sky, you will know the time. The adjustment to or from Daylight Saving Time or Summer Time is also a one-touch operation, and the date is also always exact; Seiko Astron’s perpetual calendar is correct until February, 2100. The ease of use is further enhanced by Seiko’s solar technology which ensures that maintenance is never an issue. The watch takes power from all kinds of light and never needs a battery change. 

Never before has time management been so simple. Wherever you travel, the new Seiko Astron will keep you on time. Effortlessly.

Prospex Seiko Prospex challenges every limit

Prospex Seiko Prospex challenges every limit, with a collection of timepieces for sports lovers and adventure seekers whether in the water, in the sky or on land. Since launching Japan’s first diver’s watch in 1965, Seiko’s innovative technology has changed global standards.

Seiko’s expertise in diver’s watches is celebrated in the new Prospex collection

Six new Prospex creations honor two landmark Seiko Diver’s watches.

Today, two landmarks in this illustrious history are honored in new Prospex creations. In 1968, Seiko announced Japan’s first hi-beat diver’s and, ten years later, the world’s first quartz saturation diver’s watch was created. Now, these two important watches are remembered in commemorative creations that bring the latest in Seiko’s high technology watchmaking to those who work in and enjoy the underwater world.

The 1968 Automatic Diver’s Re-creation Limited Edition

In 1968, just three years after Seiko’s first diver’s watch was made, Seiko’s engineers raised the bar with a hi-beat diver’s watch with 300 meter water resistance that was one of the foundation stones on which Seiko’s future diver’s watch development was based. It had a 10-beat high precision automatic caliber, a one-piece structure, screw-down protection crown and unidirectional rotating bezel.

The 1968 original was for air diving while this new re-creation is specified for saturation diving. Like the original, it features a one piece case construction and a flat case back. It incorporates Caliber 8L55 which was specially designed for diver’s use and is made by Seiko’s skilled craftsmen and women in the Shizukuishi Watch Studio in Morioka in the north of Japan. Every detail is of the highest quality; Zaratsu polishing gives the
lug sharpness and beauty, a dual curved sapphire crystal ensures high legibility and the strap is made of the latest high strength silicone. The markers have polished edges and
those at 12, 6 and 9 are also different in design to ensure that time is read without error even 300 meters down.

The diving paradise of Yakushima inspires a second commemorative version

The same professional specifications are also to be found in a second new creation that commemorates the 1968 diver’s watch. Its signature feature is the deep green color of the dial and bezel. This rich shade of green reflects the lush tones of the ancient cedar trees on the island of Yakushima at the southern end of the Japanese archipelago. As well as being a World Natural Heritage Site because of its forests, Yakushima is a much loved destination for the diving community, thanks to its crystal clear waters, coral reefs and abundant marine life. Durability and strength are the watchwords; the zirconia ceramic bezel is highty resistant to scratches and shocks, the stainless steel case has a super-hard coating and the sapphire crystal has an anti-reflective coating both inside and out. The 5, 10, 15 and 20 minute markers on the bezel are painted with a specially powerful Lumibrite to increase the legibility of the rotating bezel and, thereby, the diver’s safety. In addition to the steel bracelet, a high strength silicone strap also accompanies the watch.

A modern re-interpretation of the 1968 automatic diver’s

Two other new Prospex watches commemorate the 1968 original. They echo its design but are executed in a modern style, with a thinner bezel and more contemporary hands. One is all stainless steel while the other features a silicone strap. Both are 200 meter water resistant and incorporate the 6R15 caliber which gives the case a slim profile.

A re-creation of the world’s first quartz saturation diver’s watch, 1978

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of Seiko’s invention of the world’s first professional quartz diver’s watch, this landmark timepiece is faithfully re-created in design but re-invented with Seiko’s latest technology and materials.
The case construction and dial layout are loyal to the original, as are the unique hour markers and the crown, while the water resistance has been increased to 1,000m. The outer case material is zirconia ceramic which is seven times harder than steel protecting the case from shock. It features all the innovations that Seiko brought to diver’s watches in the 1970’s, including the double layer construction with one piece inner case, the L-shaped gasket for helium resistance and the accordion-style strap. This new commemorative version is offered with a high-strength silicone strap for enhanced wearability both outside a wetsuit and directly on the wrist.

Cermet. The perfect material for a professional diver’s watch

The same high specifications are all available in this commemorative edition of the 1978 original. It differs only in the use of Cermet for the outer case. This material is eight times harder than steel so offers an even higher level of shock protection but also allows the creation of a unique metallic finish. It is presented in a violet gold tone, inspired by the magical light that plays over the ocean at sunset.

*A Cermet is a composite material composed of ceramic and metal materials. It has all the hardness, abrasion resistance and heat resistance of ceramics as well as the toughness typically associated with metal.
