  • Patented Seiko Spring Drive technology.
  • GMT, or 24-hour hand, to keep time in a second time zone.
  • 72-hour power reserve.
  • Stainless steel case and bracelet.
  • Sapphire crystal (with anti-reflective coating).
  • See-through sapphire caseback.
  • Water-resistant to 10 bar (100 meters, or about 330 feet).
