Cellphone Shots of the SBDB009

SBDB009

Saw the new Seiko Spring Drive 600m tuna (SBDB009) at Big Time and took the opportunity to snap some pictures.

The SBDB009 is the latest high end diver by Seiko. A limited edition model with rose gold accent (SBDB008) was release last year as a commemorative model to celebrate 100 years of watchmaking by Seiko.

Here are the pictures of the SBDB009.

Watch Purchase: Orient Star DV02002B

DV02002B_1

Here is a standard date Orient Star that I picked up recently. The model number is DV02002B or WZ0051DV in Japan. The sapphire crystal is treated with Orient’s SAR (super anti-reflective) coating which makes the dial very clear and easy to read. I have done a review of this watch previously but having worn the watch for several days, I know it better now and would like to share a few shots that show the beauty of this watch.

Note that the watch comes with a metal but I have put it on a leather strap to suit my preference.

Military Inspired Seiko 5 – SRP515K

SRP515K_1

Here is a military inspired Seiko 5 that was released a few months ago. Its large minute chapter ring reminds me of the 7S36 model (SNZG07J, SNZG09J, etc) from several years back. This watch however, has a bigger crown for hand winding since it is powered by the 4R36 instead of the 7S36 movement.
