Seiko "Arnie" Prospex PADI Dive Watch with Solar Movement and 47.5mm Case #SNJ027

This incredible Prospex Divers Solar SNJ027 (PADI version) 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 SNJ027 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 SNJ027 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.

    Both of my dealings with Island Watch were EXCELLENT, and I can be hard to please. Thank you Marc for your late night personalised emails. That impressed me very much. I knew then that I was dealing with a guy that cared, and that is truly rare today. I highly recommend Island Watch for honesty, and sincerity. A rare commodity these days.

    This watch has been getting a lot of wrist time, much to the annoyance of my family because I keep having outbursts of "get to the choppa!" etc. The size, strap, shroud, digital display, and overall feel are spot on. I particularly like the two lume colours on this PADI model. Brilliant! Thanks, Marc, for this great product!

    Really nice watch at a great price. Love the Pepsi bezel and the! Nice touch differentiating the minute hand from the hour hand with bright green lume. Accuracy consistent with Seiko quartz rivals my atomic alternatives. Features are easy to access with novel screw-down pushers securing the 20-atmosphere water resistance rating. Solar charging eliminates the need to change batteries. But then again I have my original Arnie (Pre Swartznager) circa1985 and it still keeps time with accuracy that rivals it's these recent reissues. Was looking for an excuse to pay back Mark from Long Island watch for all of the great videos his shop puts out... Thanks!

    Long Island Watch is the best place on the Internet to buy Seiko watches. I love the new Seiko Arnie. Thanks, Mark!
