Like its 1975 predecessor, the new Marinemaster Professional 1000m Diver’s has the two-layer case construction that is now the trademark of Seiko’s professional diver’s watches.

Thanks to the strength of the inner case structure, the specially designed L-shaped gasket and the screw-down glass fixing ring, the watch is effectively impermeable to helium and can be safely used for saturation diving to great depths. The use of ceramic for the outer shell enhances shock resistance and also prevents any unintentional rotation of the bezel.

The hands and markers employ a new version of Seiko’s Lumibrite, which glows for 60% longer than in the past. The strap in extra-strength silicone offers flexibility and greater durability.
