Here are some proper pictures of the new Seiko Prospex 200m diver, SRP637K. This is definitely a nicer looking and wearable 7S or 4R based 200m diver that Seiko made in recent years. I mean the Baby Tuna is nice but the plastic shroud won’t last long. The Stargate is nice too but the lume pip tend to fall off. The Monster with fangs is nice but it’s too small for today’s standard. Let’s hope there’s no problem with this one.
Here are the pictures.
Saw the new Seiko 200m shrouded divers at K2. They are similar to the Baby Tuna (or Sardine as they call it) model that was discontinued a while ago. The main difference besides the hands is the metal shroud which I think is much better than the plastic one.
I saw three variants and here are some quick and dirty cellphone pictures of two of them – SRP639K and SRP641K. The third model, SRP637K will be in my next post.
Here is a Seiko 5 that was released recently. The black/blue bezel and case design remind me of the Rolex GMT master. Of course, it is a Seiko 5 powered by the 4R36 movement.
Here are some pictures.
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.
Here’s an aviator style Seiko 5 that was released recently. It comes with slide rule bezel and features a red tipped “aircraft” second hand. It is powered by the 4S36 movement with hack and handwind feature.
Here are a few pictures of the SRP615K.
Among the new Seiko 5 models released recently is the SRP605K shown above. There are several colour variants but this blue dialed model seems to be the nicest among them all. 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:
Saw a couple of new Seiko 5 models in the local market including the SRP625K shown above. This watch is powered by the 4R36 movement and has a matte finished case. It is pretty big at 44mm excluding crown. Unlike other Seiko 5’s of this size, this one does not seem to have an over-sized minute chapter ring. It looks proportional to the size of the watch.
Here are some pictures of the SRP625K.
