Reading Time: 5 minutes

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. Seiko Prospex LX Line Limited Edition 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 colourings —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.”

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 colour 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.

The black case 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.

The calm of sea at night and the glimmer of moonlight coexist in peaceful harmony on this model with its matching black case and silicone strap.

Seiko’s unique Spring Drive

The movement, the engine of the watch, is fitted with Seiko’s innovative mechanism— Spring Drive Caliber 5R65. Its unique glide motion seconds hand is silent and boasts a power reserve of approximately 72 hours (3 days) when fully wound.
