Here are some proper pictures of the new Seiko Prospex 200m diver, SRP637K. This is definitely a nicer looking and wearable 7S or 4R based 200m diver that Seiko made in recent years. I mean the Baby Tuna is nice but the plastic shroud won’t last long. The Stargate is nice too but the lume pip tend to fall off. The Monster with fangs is nice but it’s too small for today’s standard. Let’s hope there’s no problem with this one.
Here are the pictures.
Saw the new Seiko 200m shrouded divers at K2. They are similar to the Baby Tuna (or Sardine as they call it) model that was discontinued a while ago. The main difference besides the hands is the metal shroud which I think is much better than the plastic one.
I saw three variants and here are some quick and dirty cellphone pictures of two of them – SRP639K and SRP641K. The third model, SRP637K will be in my next post.
Had the opportunity to handle this Orient Multi-year Calendar watch (model number EU0A003W). Multi-year Calendar is one of Orient’s signature watch model and most of these watches are quite big. This model however is close to a dress watch size at diameter of 41.5mm excluding crown. It also has the dress watch type of case, markers and hands design.
Here are some pictures of the EU0A003W.
Here are some pictures of the latest Orient open heart model that I posted earlier. Besides the open heart or semi-skeleton, this model features a very legible dial with big Arabic numerals (not lumed) and a curved end strap that fits nicely into the curvature of the lugs.
The model featured here is the DB0C001B. Check it out.
Saw a couple of new Orient models at Big Time today. Shown above is a sporty open heart model (DB0C001B) with big Arabic numerals.
Below are the other variants. Each variant comes with a curved end strap that fits nicely into the curvature of the lugs.
Purchased the Seiko SARG009 recently. I have posted on another variant, SARG011 before so I won’t go into details of the watch here. I chose the SARG009 because it has a black dial which provide better contrast for the white hands and hour markers.
I have also replaced the steel bracelet with a black leather strap. The end result is a watch with three colours – black, white and steel as shown above.
Here are some pictures of my SARG009.
Here is a Seiko 5 that was released recently. The black/blue bezel and case design remind me of the Rolex GMT master. Of course, it is a Seiko 5 powered by the 4R36 movement.
Here are some pictures.
