This green-dialled beauty (a limited run of 600 pieces) is Seiko’s first hi-beat watch to feature GMT functionality and offers a 55-hour power reserve.

The watch features a new hi-beat mechanical movement . If you miss out on the limited edition there are also two serially produced models with either black or white dials.
