This time round, I had the opportunity to handle a new Seiko Superior model, SSA049K. This model is powered by the 4R37 movement characterized by a 24 hour indicator sub-dial.
Although not a diver, the design of this watch is very similar to that of the Seiko Monster. Here are some pictures.
- Textured dial with hour and minute markers on a separate layer.
- The hour hand has red coloured frame instead of the minute hand.
- Triangle under the 12 o’clock marker is not a GMT hand.
- Crown at 2 sets date and time.
- Crown at 4 rotates inner compass bezel.
- Both crowns are non screw in.
- Side profile very similar to the Monster.
- Top bezel makes 60 clicks per round.
- See-through type.
- Straight end type (no end links).
List Price (for reference only):
- SGD593.90 inclusive of GST.
Diameter excluding crown: 43mm
Lug width: 22mm
