Inspired by Zero Halliburton’s iconic aluminum case, Seiko Presage presents three new watches with GMT in this collaboration. The models incorporate an aluminum bezel with 24-hour markings. And special motif on the dial which is a reference to Zero Halliburton’s iconic “double-ribbed” pattern. This design has been applied to Zero Halliburton products since 1946, with the expressed purpose to enhance robustness and durability. However, over time, the pattern is seen as a design element, bringing a signature of the brand. This double-ribbed pattern is reproduced on the dial and combined with the traditional Japanese hemp leaf pattern.

The rest of the watch case and bracelet feature a hairline finish which is consistent to that used in the Zero Halliburton cases. This brushed surface contrasts with the high polished ones in juxtaposition, which gives the overall look a 3 dimensional effect.

As a special feature of the collaboration models, the back of the watch is marked with “Limited Edition” and a serial number, while the glass is graced with the Zero Halliburton logo.

The watch is packaged in a Zero Halliburton polycarbonate case which is specially designed with the iconic double-ribbed pattern of Zero Halliburton. Interestingly, the case is in polycarbonate and not in aluminium, especially when the metal is the basis for the inspiration source – Zero Halliburton’s Pursuit Aluminium Series.
