I had the opportunity to handle this Seiko 1000m shrouded quartz diver that was made for the international market. This watch is not the same as the current Prospex model SBBN013 because does not have the word “Marinemaster” on its dial. Is it the same as the previous Prospex model, SBBN011 in every aspect? I don’t have the SBBN011 so here are some pictures of the S23619J1 so you can see for yourself.
Day display in English/Arabic:
(Note: No “Marinemaster” and manufactured in June 2011)
(Note: the watch comes with a long strap. The picture below shows the long end of the strap compared to the strap from the SBBN017. The short end is of standard length. Non-metallic keeper though)
