This watch is expected in stock in July
The Seiko Prospex PADI SNJ035P1 is a model that has become an icon partially by being an amazing watch, but also due to a certain Austrian actor. Before you start digging through your Austrian cinema pub quiz knowledge, we can reveal it's the one and only Arnold Schwarzenegger. He wore this piece (or to be precise, the watch upon this re-issue was based) in several of his beloved action films and that really helped turned this model into an icon and caused people the bestow the 'Arnie' nickname upon it.
Now, it wouldn't do justice to the watch by simply pointing to a celebrity wearing it, as the watch has some incredible merits to it. Introduced in the 80s it embraced the great ana-digi combination, where a watch has both an analog display and digital features combined.
It features the brand new Seiko Cal. H855 movement which is solar powered and accurate to approximately 15 seconds per monthand a battery life up to 6 months. It has a plethora of functions embedded, such as a chronograph, alarm, calendar and a second timezone. But also brand new features such as depth measuring and a diving log.
The 'Arnie' is an excellent blend of watches; not just ana and digi and the respective features, but also as a diving and a casual/sports watch with the diving bezel, a comfortable rubber strap and 200m water resistance. This is one of those watches that can do it all. Provided you are exposed to sunlight every few months.
In terms of size it comes in at 46.9mm diameter, although the lug to lug to is still relatively manageable at 50.9mm, which means it will have an impressive presence on your wrist, while not being overly large. It's up to you to hit the gym like a certain Austrian if you wish to dwarf this watch, but for anyone else keen on adventure, this will be an outstanding watch in more than 1 way!
This model is part of the 'PADI' line, that Seiko produces in collaboration with the Professional Association of Diving Instructors. The details show in the PADI world logo in the dial, alongside the distinctive name on the bottom half of the dial.

We're an authorised dealer of all of our brands, unless otherwise noted. In this day and age there are also many 'grey market dealers' that compromise. What are the main benefits of buying from an authorised dealer with regard to the warranty?
2 year warranty
We offer a 2 year warranty on all watches. This covers all mechanical malfunction arising from parts failure and/or assembly errors. Excluded are parts that by their nature may not last 2 years, like batteries and leather straps, damage/problems caused by improper use and wear and tear. We stand behind the brands that we sell and the quality that they offer.
Some of our brands also offer an international warranty, which will also apply.
Service and parts
In the unfortunate event of a problem with your watch, you simply need to send it to us (or take it to another dealer if the brand offers an international warranty). We have access to the official service centers, where only original parts are used and the watchmakers are qualified and experienced with your type of watch. Not every watch movement is the same, so it's best if it's handled by people who know what they are doing.
After your 2 years warranty has expired we are able to offer service in most cases.
