Seiko Prospex Aviation Solar Chronograph

Seiko Watch Corporation presents the Prospex Aviation Solar Chronograph, a modern reinterpretation of a Seiko classic from the 1970s.

In 1972, the Seiko Flight Computer set a new standard in aviation watches and began a tradition in this area that is today renewed with a solar aviation chronograph of high specifications.

The slide rule allows calculations of distance, fuel and oil consumption and speed, while the chronograph measures elapsed time for up to 60 minutes. Powered by light alone, the Prospex Aviation Solar Chronograph watch delivers what pilots need most, complete reliability throughout their flight.

The 46.1mm diameter case is mounted with a bidirectional rotating bezel with slide rule scale. The solar-powered Seiko Caliber V175 displays the main time with 3 hands (hour, minute and second), 24-hour, Date at 4.30H and stopwatch (1/5-second and minute hands). The other functionalities include split-time measurement, energy depletion forewarning function, and overcharging prevention function.

The watch comes with a black dial featuring red and white hands and details. The hour and minute hands as well as the index hour markers employ LumiBrite luminescent application for enhancing the night time visibility.

The Seiko Prospex Aviation Solar Chronograph is presently available in two versions. The first model SSC261P1 comes with a stainless steel bracelet. The second version (SSC261P2) has a black leather strap.
