  • SEIKO PROSPEX LX Line Limited Edition




    The LX line emerged from the Seiko Prospex collection in 2019 as the pinnacle of the Seiko sport watch. This series takes its name from “lux,” the Latin word for “light,” as it is intended to have a presence that shines brilliance upon wearers. It is a premium sports watch collection that blends a high aesthetic sense with high practicality.

    A new limited edition model embodying the seascape brought to mind by this flagship of the diver’s watch collection has been released as part of the LX line. By utilizing cermet for the bezel, the luster of fantastic water surfaces were depicted, both in violet gold and platinum colorings —a feature not possible with conventional ceramic.

    The definite performance as a professional tool is combined with a surreal beauty woven from the interplay of light and shadow in this special model, which was designed on the concepts of “Sea illuminated by the sun at dawn” and “Moonlight flickering on the sea surface.” A violet gold-colored model depicting the sea illuminated by the sun at dawn.

    revealing an evolution



    In addition to the cermet exterior of the bezel, the case, based on Seiko’s original Professional Diver’s—an iconic timepiece born in 1968—is yet another attractive element that underwent an evolution to be reborn with a sense of aesthetics and practicality befitting a contemporary luxurious item.
    Zaratsu polished with a distortion-free mirror surface surrounding the exterior of the case.
    The center of gravity was brought closer to the skin to create a case design with an incredibly comfortable fit on the wrist.
    This is a masterpiece diver’s watch encompassing the very best of the Seiko Sport Collection.
    Recreating the faint first rays of light at daybreak on the wrist

    The flickering reflections on the sea of the morning sun filtering in from the sky at dawn is depicted by the glamorous violet gold color of the bezel. Cermet is used for the bezel in order to achieve this texture woven from the reflections of delicate light.
    By resonating with the dark brown dial, the look is reminiscent of the fantastic scene that can only be seen at sea in the dim light of dawn.

    Seiko's unique Spring Drive

    "Flesh could not keep its glamour, nor eyes their sheen. They would go to nothing soon. But monsters are forever"



    “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
    If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher.
    As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide".
    Abraham Lincoln
