The Speedtimer Prospex watch collection represents Seiko’s professional timekeeping heritage and takes inspiration from the brand’s innovative history, this piece is powered by a new in-house solar chronograph calibre equipped with a stopwatch which measures time to the nearest 1/100th of a second.

This limited-edition design is one of only 4,000 pieces worldwide commemorating Seiko as official timekeeper of the 2023 World Athletics event in Budapest.

Becoming official timekeeper for Tokyo’s 1964 Olympics was a turning point in Seiko’s history when the brand began making precisely accurate professional sports timing instruments, with no prior experience. This legacy continues today as Seiko is the World Athletics Official Timekeeper since 1985, supplying timing and measurement services to more than 180 World Athletics events in every corner of the globe.

Elements of the design highlight Seiko’s association with the championships – the dial effect is created to look like the texture of the running track, whilst gold colour highlights on the hands represent the glory of being awarded the gold medal. The official logo of Budapest World Athletics is engraved on the case back.

The Black dial, subdials and bracelet of this particular timepiece achieves visibility and legibility due to its separate indicators for time and chronograph functions.  Conveniently solar-powered; the watch charges from both natural and electric light.

The hammer-shaped button allows for easier operability of the stopwatch function. This model is powered by the in-house built Solar chronograph calibre 8A50 that allows measurement to the nearest one-hundredth of a second.

Prospex is a combination of the words ‘Professional’ and ‘Specifications.’ Seiko Prospex timepieces are designed to be practical, reliable and durable; to meet the high standards required in extreme environments for sports lovers and adventure seekers alike.
