Seiko Prospex 1968 Re-Creation Automatic Black Dial Silver Steel Bracelet Men’s Watch SPB185J1

Seiko Prospex Watch SPB185J1 1968 Re-Creation Automatic timepiece is one of a collection of new interpretations of Seiko’s diving heritage for 2020. This specific watch is inspired by the Seiko 1968 Diver’s 300m watch – which was the highest of world standards hi-beat calibre and was used for the first climb from Japan to Mount Everest. The 2020 version has been modernised from the original version with a smaller case size – from 44mm to 42mm, high visibility dial layouts and increased power reserve to 70 hours with calibre 6R35. Seiko Prospex watches are designed for sports lovers and adventure seekers in the water, in the sky or on land. Since launching Japan’s first diver’s watch in 1965, Seiko’s innovative watchmaking has changed global dive watch standards.

The Case:

The Seiko SPB185J1 is part of the Seiko Prospex line, a unique collection of sports watches reflecting the brand’s many years of expertise. The Seiko SPB185J1has a sturdy stainless steel case with a super-hard coating measuring 42mm in diameter. With a handsome unidirectional bezel and a thickness of 13mm, this watch can go into the medium-sized category. The curved lugs bring a touch of panache to what is otherwise a tough-looking case.

The screw-down crown at three o’clock is oversized and adds to the sporty image of this watch. The dial is protected by curved sapphire crystal, which also boosts the solidity of the Seiko SPB185J1.

The Dial:

With a black dial, the Seiko SPB185J1definitely has an athletic feel to it. This is heightened by the presence of oversized, luminescent indices, which are coated with Lumibrite along with the flamboyant indexes. The date window at three o’clock brings some added depth to the dial of the Seiko SPB185J1. There is also an anti-reflective coating on the inner-surface to make the SPB185J1 super-legible at all times.

The Bracelet:

The stainless steel bracelet of the Seiko SPB185J1 lends the watch a sporty yet luxurious image. The bracelet uses a classic clasp closure that sits safe, secure and comfortable on the wrist. As with the rest of this timepiece, Seiko has achieved the perfect balance between form and function with the bracelet of the Seiko SPB185J1.

The Functions:

Using a self-winding automatic caliber, the Seiko SPB185J1 benefits from over a century of Japanese watchmaking expertise. The watch is water-resistant to 200 meters and has a seventy-hour power reserve, adding to its sporting credentials as a high-end dive watch packed with functionality.

With 24 jewels, date displays and stop seconds hand function, the Seiko SPB185J1 is a highly functional timepiece.

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.
