Seiko "Arnie" Prospex Tuna Dive Watch with Solar Movement and 47.5mm Case #SNJ031

This iProspex Divers Solar SNJ031 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 military green aesthetic looks striking on the wrist and fastens comfortably by a soft green matching silicon strap. The case of the SNJ031 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 SNJ031 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 is an ISO 6425 rated diver.

5 of 5 Beautiful monstrosity! August 10, 2020
Reviewer: A Ly from Annadale, VA United States  
Let me start by saying that I love this Arnie. The watch is huge and the lugs are almost as wide as my skinny 6.25" wrist. The silicone strap is extremely soft and comfortable albeit much too long for a smaller wrist so the end part of the strap is sticking out on the side of my wrist. But I already knew this from the review done by Marc. To rectify this problem, I throw it on my NDC marine nationale and it is an absolute knockout. Overall, I'm very surprised by how well a watch of this size wear on my wrist and I am very happy with my decision. As always, great service and information provided by Marc with Island Watch.
