Review of SEIKO PROSPEX Great Blue Hole Special Edition Diver's 200m Automatic Watch SPB083J1

By 4dwatch - May 02, 2019

This watch is inspired by the 1968 original diver's watch, re-created with a thinner bezel. It's powered by a 6R15 automatic movement, which beats at 21,600 times an hour. It's a great watch with a ton of wrist presence. The blue and black sunray dial really make this model stand out over the other black dialed models. The easy to read dial features luminous indexes and contemporary hands. The first impression that I got about the Seiko Prospex SPB083J1 after strapping it on is that this watch has a truly unique dial. The stunning blue gradient fill direction is different. The new Seiko has greatly improved the functionality, with the sapphire crystal, with more than 200 meters of water resistance in addition to the stainless steel strap.

The Seiko Prospex SPB083J1 uses Seiko’s trusty 6R15 automatic movement to ensure it provides dependable time-giving services to its owners.

It starts from a light blue pillar occupying the  markers in the middle and transitioning into dark blue towards the outer edges of the dial. Overall case diameter sits at 44mm with a lug width of 20mm. The watch uses an anti-reflective sapphire crystal and its case is treated with Seiko’s Diashield coating ensuring better scratch protection and corrosive resistance. The stainless-steel strap comes with a dive-extension and fold-over safety clasp which I found really helpful and with purpose.
