sarg009_6

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’s a quick look at the ET0T001W.

Some Pictures of the Seiko Prospex Kinetic GMT Divers

Had the opportunity the check out the Seiko Prospex Kinetic GMT divers at K2 recently. The three models I handled are SUN019P, SUN021P and SUN023P. They are big, thick and heavy, and will dwarf almost any Seiko diver you put next to them except the big tunas (SD and Emperor). They are powered by the 5M85 Kinetic movement and the GMT hand can be set independently.

I do not know the diameter but I do know that the lug width is 24mmm. Here are the pictures I took.

It has a matching blue bezel and the outline on the hands and hour marker are gold. A nice colour combination in my opinion.

This model is powered by the 4R36 movement. Here is a quick photo review:
