Seiko Prospex Glacier Special Edition ‘Save The Ocean’ 1970 Re-Interpretation Automatic White Dial
The Seiko Prospex Glacier 1970 Re-Creation SPB301J1 features a 46.35mm stainless steel case that has been treated to a brushed finish and a super-hard coating. The most distinctive component of the case is the blue 120-click unidirectional rotating bezel that showcases a lume-pip at 12 o’clock and 60-minute scale. The case also features a recessed screw-down crown that is located at 4 o’clock, which prevents it from being knocked out of place and from digging into the wearer’s wrist. Double domed sapphire crystal glass offers both durability and legibility, as it has been finished with an anti-reflective coating.
The dial is presented in a textured off-white tone. The layout of the dial is simplistic, as it utilises thick silver-framed baton-style hour markers that are filled with Lumibrite material, ensuring that the dial can be read in areas of low light. The silver sword-style handset is located in the centre of the dial, the hour hand has been generously coated in a luminescent material. A date-display window replaces the 3 o’clock marker, whilst a 60-minute track is located on the chapter ring. The dial also displays the Seiko logo beneath the 12 o’clock marker and the Prospex logo above the 6 o’clock marker.
The SPB301J1 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.
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.
