Description

Seiko Prospex Save The Ocean Glacier 1965 Re-Interpretation Automatic Blue Dial Stainless Steel Bracelet Men’s Watch SPB297J1

This specific design is inspired by Seiko’s 1965 Diver’s watch – Japan’s first ever Japanese 150m Diving watch, worn by members of the Japanese Antarctic Expedition from 1966 until 1969.

This ‘Save the Ocean’ Special Edition, inspired by the ice of Antarctica, expresses the accumulation of time – linking the Antarctic history of Seiko diver’s watches with the time it takes for a glacier to form into its beautiful structure. The dial pattern and colour express the natural formations and pressure the glacier underwent during its long cooling period. Glaciers formed during the ice age, approximately 150 to 3 million years ago.

Prospex is a combination of the words ‘Professional’ and ‘Specifications.’ These timepieces are designed to be practical, reliable and durable within extreme or everyday environments, for experts, sports lovers and adventure seekers alike. Since launching Japan’s first diver’s watch in 1965, Seiko’s innovative watchmaking has changed global dive watch standards.

Seiko donates a portion of proceeds from Save The Ocean models to the PADI Aware Foundation’s Marine Debris programme, the world’s largest underwater clean-up initiative.

The Case:

The Seiko Propsex Save The Ocean Glacier 1965 Re-Interpretation SPB297J1 is housed in a 42mm wide and 12.5mm tall stainless steel case. A black insert unidirectional rotating bezel sits on top of the case, it exhibits a silver 60-minute count-up scale and a luminescent pip. The grooved walls of the bezel ensure that it always remains easily operable. The bevelled edges of the case have been treated to a polished finish, which bestows the case with a sharp, well-defined sharp profile. A screw-down crown is located at 3 o’clock on the side of the case. Curved sapphire crystal glass offers optimum durability and scratch-resistance. It has been treated with an anti-reflective coating, which prevents the dial from becoming unreadable when exposed to glare from the sun.

The Dial:

The textured glacial blue dial exhibits a classic, straight-forward design that ensures that the dial always remains readable. Baton-style hour markers and a silver baton-style handset are filled with Seiko’s LumiBrite material which enables the dial to be read in the dark. A white 60-minute track meanders around the edge of the dial, allowing for a more accurate reading of the time. A date-aperture is located at 3 o’clock, whilst the Seiko logo is presented in white beneath the 12 o’clock marker. 

The Bracelet:

The SPB297J1 is presented on an oyster-style 3-link stainless steel bracelet that has been treated to a brushed finish. It features a three-fold clasp with secure lock and a push button release with a diver extender. 

The Functions:

Seiko’s 6R35 calibre automatic movement powers this timepiece, it offers an accuracy of +15/-25 seconds per day and a power reserve of 70 hours when fully charged. It is water resistant to 200 metres, which means it can be worn when 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.
