Seiko "Arnie" Prospex Tuna Dive Watch with Solar Movement and 47.5mm Case #SNJ025

This incredible Prospex Divers Solar SNJ025 watch is a reissue of a cult classic originally known as the Seiko H558 watch that was first introduced in 1982. At the time, it was considered the world’s first hybrid diver watch. But, it was also famous for being the exact watch Arnold Schwarzenegger personally owned and wore in many of his 1980’s movies including Commando and The Predator. So, this new model has been nicknamed, the Seiko ‘Arnie’ watch as part of the Prospex Divers collection which follows closely the same design style as its early counterpart.

The all-black aesthetic looks striking on the wrist and fastens comfortably by a soft black matching silicon strap. The case of the SNJ025 watch measures to 47.5mm in size, a slight increase from the original, and it is crafted from polished stainless steel. The largest difference between the new Seiko SNJ025 Solar Arnie and the original is the movement. The H558 model was powered by a standard quartz calibre whereas this new Seiko Arnie watch is equipped with Seiko’s famous Solar H851 movement with a six month power reserve when fully charged (by strong light). The H851 movement equips the timepiece with chronograph function, alarm, calendar and dual time. The functions are presented beautifully beneath hardlex crystal glass by a digital display and luminous hands and indices.

Water resistance is 200 meters. 120-click bezel. Screw down crown and pushers. 22mm lug width. It’s an ISO 6425 rated diver.

5 of 5 Awesome December 16, 2019
Reviewer: Nick Kincanon from Fremont, NE United States  
This is an awesome watch.  The only thing I can think to top it off would be a ceramic lumed bezel.  It would be interesting to know if that could be modded by someone.  The only other point I would mention is that the bezel action feels a little "mushier" than what I am used to, but not unreasonable for this price point.  If I could swap a higher end bezel with crisper action, it would be an absolute perfect watch to me.  Zero regrets for buying it, though.  Lots of fun!

5 of 5 Owning a Legend.... November 19, 2019
Reviewer: Leonard Sarmiento from Cerritos, CA United States  
This watch is everything I was hoping for, and more.  In the few short weeks it has become my daily use watch...replacing my tried and true SKX 009.  It has presense, while not being "heavy".  It is both simple, yet adorned, in its own way.  This is the reissue for those of us enjoyed the action flicks of the 80's.  It was worth waiting 30 years for its surprise return into the Seiko lineup.

If it had one fault, then it would be that the "Arnie" didn't have a bracelet variation.  You can't fault the original, because the option wasn't available (and it really is a great deal for the vast majority of owners)..  To my own tastes, I've corrected this issue with a new Black DVP Strapcode Super Oyster.

You can't go wrong with this purchase.  The legend has returned, long live the legend.
