Seiko Drops Another Limited Edition of Prospex Speedtimer

The latest Prospex Speedtimer Chronograph Limited Edition SRQ045J1 is inspired by Seiko’s first stopwatch, which was developed for timing winter sport activities. As the official timing device of a major sporting event held in Sapporo, Japan in 1972, the original stopwatch, designed to meet winter conditions, featured an all-black dial.

The re-edition, limited to 600 pieces, does not only sport a sandblasted black watch face for reflection-free readability but, thanks to a hard coating, also a completely black case. It measures 42.5mm in diameter and is water resistant to 100 meters.

Behind the exhibition caseback is the in-house self-winding caliber 8R46 with 45 hours of power reserve, which is equipped with a column-wheel and vertical-clutch architecture.

The Prospex Speedtimer Chronograph Limited Edition SRQ045J1 is priced at at $3,200 when converted to USD and is presented on a black leather strap and will be available from February 2023.
