Seiko has created a limited edition watch in tribute to 80-year-old Japanese alpinist Yuichiro Miura, who plans to climb Mount Everest for the third time in May 2013.
Miura became the oldest person to reach the summit of Mount Everest in 2003, aged 70. He broke the record for a second time in 2008 at 75 years old. Seiko
will now honour Miura's third attempt at the achievement with a 300-piece limited edition watch.
Prospex Landmaster Miura Everest 2013 has a black IP coated titanium case measuring 46 mm, with 'Miura Everest 2013' engraved on the side of the case. It has a black dial, with white luminescent hour markers and hands. A second time zone is displayed with red numerals, and there is a date window at 3 o'clock. Movement is the Spring Drive Seiko in-house calibre 5R66 with a power reserve of 72 hours. The watch offers water resistance to 100 metres, and comes with a bracelet and nylon strap.
