The Seiko Prospex SBBN033 is one watch that gives its wearer so much excitement because of its look and feel. A wristwatch you can be proud to be seen with. Now diving fans can have a wristwatch that complements the unexplainable feeling which comes with the passion.

The Prospex SBBN033 is a watch showing the innovations of Seiko, designed for professional and scuba diving and comes with a warranty of 2 years. A lot of thought was put into the creation process of this watch to ensure that it can be used even in great depths.

With the protective screwed-on shrouds that distinguishes this watch, you can be sure that it is going to last for a long time.

The Case

The SBBN033 has a case measurement of approximately 48mm wide, excluding the crown and a thickness of 15mm. It also has a water resistance of 300 meters, which makes it suitable for swimming, water splashes, showers, rain, and scuba diving.

When the watch is worn under water, the crown screws down, this is a mechanism put in place during the design of the watch to make it impossible for it to pull out while below the water surface.

Its bezel is made of stainless steel and can be easily rotated. The lugs have a 22mm gap between them, and the rubber band can easily be replaced with another choice as the owner pleases. The Seiko Prospex SBBN033 is one watch every scuba and professional diver should have.

The First Impression

If you get intimidated upon sighting the Seiko SBBN033 for the first time, don’t blame yourself too much because this beautifully crafted masterpiece usually has that effect on people. The wristwatch has a stainless steel case of approximately 48mm which makes it a comfortable wristwatch to wear. Looking at the case, you can observe that the stainless steel is well polished with the Seiko Diashield, a protective covering that resists scratches.

Also, the Seiko satin brushed both the bezel and the inner case to bring about a sharp contrast.

The hands and markers of the SBBN033 can be seen to be luminous. This was achieved through the use of Lumibrite which was used to treat them. When viewed in places with low light visibility, both the hands and markers will appear clearly due to the Lumibrite.

The Hardlex Crystal used in its design adds to the toughness of the watch, making it resistive to impact. When you turn the watch over, you will be presented with a back case that is solidly screwed-down.

A rubber strap that fits comfortably around the wrist when worn gives an overall beauty to the outward appearance of the Seiko SBBN033.

The Movement

The Marine Master SBBN033 has a 7 jewel, 7C46 quartz movement. Its movement has high efficiency as well as high torque tolerance which empowers the pinions and gears to function with ease, thereby controlling the hands to match the energy-pulse originating from the electronic motor operating the device.

This results in a highly accurate quartz machine that requires little battery power to work. No wonder its battery has a lifespan of 5 years.


The Seiko SBBN033 is yet another hit for the world of men’s fashion. This watch is so beautifully crafted, attractive and will make any man a proud owner. For a divers watch of this quality, I believe it is well priced.

Now tell me, what purpose will yours serve most, diving or recreational? Anyway, whatever you choose, you can be certain that the Seiko SBBN033 will serve you well and make you a proud owner.
