Origins of this design – 1970 Seiko

Released in 1970, the diver’s watch, which features a unique streamlined form, was carried by adventurer Naomi Uemura on a 12,000km dog sled trip in the Arctic Circle from 1974 to 1976. High reliability has been demonstrated. While reproducing the original form of the case, the water resistance has been increased from 150m to 200m for air diving, and the glass material has been upgraded from inorganic glass to sapphire glass. Helly Hansen strongly sympathized with the story and functionality of this model, and was adopted as the base model this time.
