By TLex SEIKO have announced a partnership with the World's Largest Diving Network, PADI! And to celebrate they have launched two new Prospex PADI Special Editions Diver’s models which will be released this autumn:
the Automatic DIVER's PADI Ref. SRPA21 shown here with its red and blue “Pepsi” bezel, and the Kinetic GMT DIVER's PADI Ref. SUN065.
Both special models feature PADI's characteristic red and blue color on the dials and the bezels, and the PADI logo on the dials.
Since the launch of Seiko's first diver's watch in 1965, Seiko has brought to professional divers a stream of innovative new technologies and designs that have made diving safer and easier for the professional and recreational diver alike.
These innovations include the world's first titanium diver's watch in 1975, the first diver's watch with a ceramic outer case in 1986 and the first Nitrox Dive Computer watch in 2000. Thanks to these advances and to the supreme quality of their diver's watches, Seiko has earned a high reputation of trust in the diving community.
A few months after Seiko's first diver's watch appeared two American dive enthusiasts decided that standards of training in diving needed to be raised and founded the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI).
