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.
Had the opportunity to handle this Seiko Brightz model, SDGC030 recently. This is a Seiko X Cotton Club collaboration model and is powered by the 6R21 mechanical movement. It is a JDM model and is limited to 500 pieces.
Here is a pictorial review.
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.
