Some Pictures of the Seiko SPB083J1

This time round I had the opportunity to take some pictures of the Seiko Prospex special edition diver, SPB083J1. This is the modern interpretation of the vintage 6159 professional diver. Seiko has already released a black dial (SPB077J1) and a blue dial (SPB079J1) regular edition. This particular variant is a special edition with a different dial colour.

Diameter: 44mm excluding crown
Thickness: 13.1mm
Lug to lug: 50mm
Lug width: 20mm

Final thoughts:
Overall, I feel that this watch very ideal if you want a reasonably bullet proof diver. It has a good size of 44mm and features the 6R15 movement which is of higher specs than the 4R movement. It also has other high specs parts such as Sapphire crystal coated with anti-reflective coating. The case is stainless steel with hard coating to make it more resistant to scratch. Lastly, it has a nice bracelet with solid end links and high quality clasp.

Price wise, I think this model, together with the two regular edition variants are slightly on the high side. This will probably be reflected in their demand. However, the plus side of the price is that it will make them more exclusive.
