Description

Seiko Prospex ‘Captain Willard’ Recreation Green Dial Black Silicone Strap Automatic Mens Watch SPB153J1

*This is an ex-display model that has been gently handled and is in pristine condition. It comes with its full manufacturer’s warranty and original packaging. This is a great way to get the same quality product at a reduced price.

The Case:

The case of the Seiko Prospex ‘Captain Willard’ Men’s Watch SPB153J1 measures in at 42.7mm in width, which is somewhat slimmer than the original model which measured at 44mm. The reduction of size of this model makes it feel more authentic and in line with the sizing trends in the mid-seventies. The original model was made famous by the unique asymmetrical tonneau style case and crown positioned in at 4 o’clock. Both features have been translated on to this reiteration.

The brushed stainless steel has been finished with super hard coating, which provides the watch with unparalleled durability and scratch resistance. A green unidirectional bezel sits a top of the case, the knurled edges allow the wearer to easily rotate it. The double domed sapphire crystal glass offers both durability and legibility, as it has been finished with an anti-reflective coating. On the flip side, there is a screw down case back which allows for greater protection against water.

The Dial:

This slightly sunburst green dial has a militaristic feel, which may be of particular interest to some due to the watch’s unofficial connection with the Vietnam War. This model has been modernised from the original with a high visibility dial layout. Seiko’s peerless level of craftsmanship is present through the applied bold markers that stand out against the green dial due to their polished finish, which glistens playfully in the light. Each marker has been filled with Lumibrite, which allows for readability in areas of low light. The beveled baton-shaped hands are filled with the same luminous material for the majority of their length, and are ever-so-slightly pointed at the tip. The distinctive ‘traffic light’ style second hand that is present can also be seen on the original model. A date window replaces the 3 o’clock marker and the Seiko logo sits proudly beneath the 12 o’clock marker.

The Strap:

The black silicone strap allows for additional wearer comfort and practicality. It is a material that is often present on dive watches due to its water resistance and durability. It fastens easily using a standard buckle. The Seiko logo is present on the clasp too.

The Functions:

6R35 caliber automatic movement powers this timepiece, it also offers hacking and hand winding. Hacking is a function where the second hand stops once the crown is pulled out, allowing for precise timing once the crown is pushed in. The movement allows for a hand winding feature which by turning the crown, gives power to the watch. This 24 jewel movement offers an astounding 70 hour power reserve. It also has as an accuracy of +25 to -15 seconds per day. Also, it has a water resistance of 200 metres.

Free Strap Adjustment

It's important that your watch fits your wrist comfortably and looks great at the same time.

Leather strap watches tend to fit without a problem for most wearers. However, watches fitted with metal bracelets often need adjusting to get the perfect fit.

This is generally a very simple procedure. We can do this for you, or you can get the watch adjusted locally.

Option 1. Specify your wrist measurement and we will adjust it before being sent

When purchasing a watch which has a metal bracelet with adjustable links, we will gladly adjust the watch bracelet to fit your wrist before sending the watch to you - free of charge!

Simply type your wrist measurement (in inches or centimetres) into the bracelet size section of the checkout and we will ensure the watch bracelet is adjusted accordingly before being sent to you. We will include all the surplus links, with the watch.

How to measure your wrist

You can measure your wrist with a piece of string which you can measure against a ruler:

You should allow about half a centimetre (1/4 inch) of slack to prevent it being too tight on your wrist.

In the event of you needing an extra-long wrist bracelet, which requires an extension to the original watch, we must obtain extra links from the manufacturer, and in this event, we will contact you to inform you of any possible delays or applicable charges.

Watches with bracelets adjusted by WatchNation are still eligible under our refund policy.

Option 2. Buy the watch online from WatchNation and have it adjusted locally

If you wish, you can have it adjusted locally by another jeweller or key cutter. However, you will have to cover the cost of this option yourself.
