THE SUMO, A MODEL BORN IN 2007
Prospex PADI Special Edition “Sumo” Solar Chronograph
The PADI timepiece collection is exclusive to Seiko, as the only global watch brand to design a range of professional diver’s watches in official colours featuring the PADI logo. PADI (The Professional Association of Diving Instructors) is the world’s leading scuba diving training organisation, unifying divers around the globe who share a passion for adventure and love for the ocean.
This watch shape is affectionately named ‘Sumo’ by Seiko fans - because of its size and shape and the 12 o’clock marker – it’s a substantially strong looking timepiece. LumiBrite hour markers and hands increase legibility even in low light – when diving, the minute hand and bezel glow green. Solar-powered, the watch charges from both natural and electric light. Seiko Prospex watches are designed for sports lovers and adventure seekers in the water, in the sky or on land.
Since launching Japan’s first diver’s watch in 1965, Seiko’s innovative watchmaking has changed global dive watch standards.
