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.
Here’s another Prospex model that was released recently. This one is powered by the 4R35 movement (date only) and comes with a compass bezel (non-click). It is not exactly a new model as it was released earlier under the Superior line with a different dial design (See link at the bottom of this post).
For the Prospex model, the date window shows five continuous dates instead of one. The hour markers are represented by minute numerals (05,10…etc) instead of the usual 1,2,3 or straight bars. The case design looks very much like the Monster in my previous post but it is actually a bigger watch with a 44mm diameter.
Here are some pictures of the SRP577K.
The Seiko Monster is probably the Seiko watch with the most number of variants and has been feature many times on this blog. As we know, the regular Monsters come under the Superior line and are powered by the 4R36 movement. This time round, Seiko decided to release new variants under the Prospex line. These variants are not much different from the Superior ones except they had the Prospex logo on the dial and caseback.
Here are some photos of the SRP581K.
This time round I check out the new Prospex Solar Chronograph, SSC261P. This watch is pretty big and thick. The case structure is quite similar to the sawtooth with the watch module enclosed in an outer case. It is powered by the V175 solar chronograph movement and is fitted with a slide rule bezel that rotates smoothly (non-clicking).
Here is a quick photo review.
Here’s another recent release by Seiko. This one is a solar chronograph that is powered by the V175 movement (same movement as the solar chronograph diver – SSC017). This watch comes with rotating bezel and textured dial. Pushers and crown do not screw-in.
Here are some quick pictures.
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.
This time round I had the opportunity to check out the Seiko SARG011, a recent 6R15 JDM model from the Mechanical line. This watch has a black dial with large Arabic numerals, legible wide hands and red-tipped second hand. Some people think of it as Seiko’s version of the Explorer 1 but I see it as something like the new Tudor Ranger because of its size and its printed hour numerals and bars
Here’s a quick look.
