Saw a tray of watches at Big Time recently. Some of them are quartz but they are actually quite interesting.
The first one that I would like to highlight is this tank style ladies watch, UNEL002C. The gold case and Roman dial combination definitely catches my eyes. It comes with Japan movement as indicated at the bottom of the dial.
This time round I had the opportunity to look at the Seiko SARY055, a recent model from the Presage line. This is a JDM model that is also available in the international market as SRP527. The difference is, the SARY055 comes with Kanji day display.
The main features of this watch are:
– 4R36 movement (hack and handwind)
– Sapphire crystal
– Day/date (day in Kanji)
– blue hands
– gold coloured rotor
– lugs slope downwards
– bracelet has solid end links
Here are some pictures of the SARY055.
Received some catalog pictures of the new watches that Seiko and Orient will be releasing in the near future. I don’t have the exact release dates but they are really exciting watches and I look forward to them.
Shown above is the SBDX012. On the top right corner of the picture, I can see that it will be a commemorative watch for the 50th Anniversary of Seiko Divers. This model looks exactly like the SBDX001 except for the gold accents.
Here is another vintage style Seiko that I handled recently. Like the one I posted before (two posts down), this one is also powered by the 7S26C movement. The main features of this piece are the faceted crystal, hidden lugs and bright coloured dial. These are prominent features of watches in the seventies.
Here are some pictures of the SNKN03K.
The M-Force name was revived in 2011 and since then, a 200m M-Force diver is released each year without fail. This time round, I managed to take a look at the 4th M-Force model, the black dial EL07002B. This watch is also the biggest model in terms of size compared to the previous models. Every M-Force diver is compliant with three ISO standards namely ISO 6425 diver’s watches, ISO 764 anti-magnetic watches and ISO 1413 shock-resistant watches.
Here’s a quick look at the EL07002B.
Saw a couple of new Seiko and Orient models this week at Big Time.
Shown above is the Seiko X Cotton Club model, SDGC030. It is a Brightz model that is powered by the 6R21 movement and is limited to 500 pieces. The movement beats at 28,800bph and features a power reserve sub-dial as well as pointed day and date. It comes with sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating. It is fitted with a crocodile band with folding buckle.
Here are the other models.
Here is a vintage style Seiko (model# SNKM97K) that was released recently. It is inspired by the seventies design as shown in its cushion case and dial colour.
Here is a quick look at the SNKM97K.
