Automatic with manual winding mechanism. Also known as "Baby MM" or Baby Marine Master.
In 1965 the house of Seiko introduced their first dive watch. Safe to say since then they introduced thousands of dive watches. Infact to the mass majority thinks of dive watches when they think of Seiko. So It's a bold statement to claim this one is the best under 1000. What we have here is the SBDC065 or the SPB083J1. A special edition dive watch that the community nicknamed the Marine Master 200 because of the case shape and aesthetic. The term special edition. means it was only manufactured for one year. Now the only difference between this & the others within the line is the dial color. The special edition does come with the bracelet and extra rubber strap though personally I would throw a cool vintage brown strap to really make that blue pop.
Let's start with the most obvious factor when considering this watch. The blueish green dial. It's incredible. Infact, it's one of the most mesmerizing blues I have ever seen to date. It's sort of a semi fume dial as it starts of black from the edges and lightens up to a blueish green towards the middle of the dial. The way this blue dial plays in any lighting is incredible & honestly there's nothing bad to say about it. In my opinion blue is as versatile as black & silver dials. It will never be out of place with any attire. Lets move on to the case. The watch measures in at 43.6mm with a case thickness or lack of at 13.5mm with a bracelet size of 20mm which factors into the wearability of the watch & also strap change versatility. But of course the most important factor with bigger watches is the lug to lug size or from top to bottom which measures in at 50mm.
The watch sits extremely well on the wrist. The 43mm case gives it enough wrist presence however the 50mm lugs mixed with the 20mm taper helps it wear a lot smaller, dare I say closer to a 41mm in my opinion. Also at 13.5mm thick the watch is actually not that thick so it helps keep the watch comfortable on the wrist. One thing I realized is the gradient dial actually gives a visual effect that the watch is smaller than the spec sheet suggests in a good way. The watch has a 200 meter water resistance with a screwdown crown at 4 oclock which actually makes a lot of sense to keep the crown at that position.
