SEIKO PROSPEX GLACIER "SAVE THE OCEAN" 1968 RE-INTERPRETATION - SPB299J1
Pickup currently unavailable
The SPB299 is a watch modeled after Seiko’s landmark 1968 diver’s watch. We haven’t done an official count, but the reference 6159 that this watch is based on might be the starting point for more contemporary Seikos than any other.
The 6159 has been adapted for modern tastes across a host of price points and complications, and is undoubtedly what many imagine when they hear the words “Seiko dive watch.” This case measures 42mm in diameter and has a notable barrel-like appearance with lugs that are faceted and surprisingly complex.
While the original 6159 was a technical showcase for the brand with a depth rating of 300 meters and a high-frequency movement, the newer versions (including this one) are more consumer than professional grade. Still, if this is your case shape of choice, the light blue here is very attractive, and more than a little on-trend.
