Had the opportunity to handle this Orient 100m Sporty Automatic model, EM7R004B. This particular model has a black coated case and comes with a black leather strap and black buckle. It is a stealth model and the hour markers, hands and markings on the bezel are all in white to provide a good contrast.
Here are some pictures.
Saw two shrouded Prospex divers at Big Time last Saturday. Shown above is the SBBN029. This model is limited to 700 pieces. This model is powered by the 7C46 quartz movement.
Saw a couple of new Orient and Orient Star watches at Big Time today. Shown above is the recent Orient Star GMT model, WZ0071DJ. The blue dial is really nice to look at. This model comes with quickset date and the GMT hand is independently adjustable. Below are other models.
Had the opportunity to handle this Seiko X Nano Universe limited edition Spirit model, SCVE027. This watch belongs to my friend, Jackson Ham (H2 Hub, Century Square) who is kind enough to lend it to me. Seiko has released several variants with different colour combinations. All of them are powered by the 4R35 (date only) movement and are limited to either 300 or 500 pieces.
This particular model is limited to 500 pieces and is characterized by its grey coloured dial and bezel. Here is a quick review.
I bought this SRP655K on 1st June 2015 and have worn it for three weekends. I also own the blue variant, SRP653K and overall, I am very please with both watches. They are the biggest 4R based divers in Seiko offerings so far. They made all other 4R and 7S divers “obsolete” to me.
Here is a quick pictorial review.
Managed to pick up this special edition Seiko SRP653K, a commemorative watch for the 50th Anniversary of Seiko divers. The first Seiko diver, the 6217-8000 was released in 1965 and since then, Seiko has released many iconic divers based on the latest watchmaking technologies that were available through the years. Many of these divers are “world first” so to speak.
This special edition diver pays tribute to the shrouded divers, a design that is unique to Seiko. Here is a quick photo review.
Singapore celebrates 50 years of nation building this year and this month, a pair of limited Orient Bambino was released to commemorate the event. This pair of Bambinos is exclusive to the Singapore distributor, Big Time and its appointed dealers. You won’t find them in the other parts of the world.
Each model is limited to 500 pieces. The model number of rose gold model is ER2400NW while that of the stainless steel model is ER2400PW. The stainless steel model came with rose gold hands and hour markers.
I know people are already very familiar with the Bambino. Here, I’ll just post some photos of this pair that I got. Each watch has a unique serial number and mine is 500/500.
