Undergoing evolution from the 1968 model, it uses 8L35 movement, which is a good and reliable movement just like the SBDX001 and SBDX017 Marinemaster 300 watches.

What’s new?
The diving bezel is highly polished gloss that finally made of ceramic rather than metal. The uni-directional bezel in 120 ratchet makes it more precise and the minute markers coated in new LumiBrite ensures legibility at depth, adding more security for divers. The use of sapphire crystal gives extra hardness than Hardlex crystal. It beats at 28,000 vibrations per hour and has a power reserve of 50 hours.

Although it remains the same 44.3mm case, the green dial and bezel make it stands out and would probably hits the stores!  The forest green color of the SLA019J1 is inspired by the Yakushima Island in Japan. It’s a popular place for scuba diving. And obviously the attractive dark green cedar trees in subtropical rainforest gives new life into the classic diver watch design.

Other Features:

  • Screw down crown
  • 26 jewels
  • Stop second hand function
