Seiko Prospex 1968 Recreation Automatic Black Dial Black Silicone Strap Men’s Watch SPB079J1

The Seiko Prospex 1968 Recreation SPB079J1 pays homage to Seiko’s 1968 first ever diver’s watch, the 6159-7001. This modern reinterpretation remains true to the original model’s classic dive watch aesthetics, whilst still establishing itself as a timepiece that is wonderfully unique.

The Case:

The SPB079 case is made from 316L stainless steel and it has been hardened in Seiko’s scratch-resistant DiaShield coating.  It measures 44mm in diameter, which places this watch in the midsize range, allowing it to sit comfortably on a range of wrists. The watch’s curved lugs also allow it to hug the contours of the wearer’s wrist. The screw-down crown is located at 4 o’clock, which is feature common amongst many of Seiko’s most iconic diver watches, because it permits great comfort when on the wrist and also additional practicality when it comes to preventing it getting knocked out of place.

A 120-click unidirectional stainless steel bezel sits proudly on top of the case. The bezel displays a 60-minute scale with a luminescent pip present at the 12 o’clock marker, the bezel has been highly polished which bestows it with a glossy appearance. Similarly, the easy-to-grip coin-style bezel has also been treated to the same polished finish. On the back of the case there is a screw in solid case back which ensures the watch is water resistant. The Seiko Wave logo is engraved into the case, which serves as a reminder of this watch’s intended purpose. Sapphire crystal glass provides the watch with superlative scratch resistance and protection.

The Dial:

The dial of the SPB079 is presented in matte black. The simplistic layout of the dial ensures optimum legibility and avoids the risk of any complications. It consists of applied polished hour markers and an equally bold handset consisting of an arrow-style hour hand and baton-style minute hand. Both the indices and handset have been filled with a luminescent material, allowing the wearer to read the time in the dark.

The date window at 3 o’clock gives the watch a classic divers feel, the neat positioning does not comprise the watch’s quintessential appeal. Around the age of the dial is a subtle black chapter ring that displays a 60-minute scale. The Seiko logo is presented in white beneath the 12 o’clock marker. 

The Strap:

The accordion-style silicone strap combines high durability and comfort. It has been carefully designed by Seiko to fit over a diver’s wrist at different depths while diving. This accordion-style strap dates back to 1975. It is secured with a traditional buckle that is etched with the Seiko logo.

The Functions:

Seiko’s 6R15 movement powers this timepiece, which offers a 50-hour power reserve. It consists of 23 Jewells and beats at 21,600 bph. The movement provides an accuracy range of +25/-15 seconds per day. It also offers the wearer the option of hand-winding and a hacking feature.  The watch is water resistant to 200 metres, which allows it to be worn when scuba diving.

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.
