Seiko Stargate II – SRP497K1

SRP497K

I posted about the blue Seiko Stargate II a few months back. The Orange variant, SRP497 is also another one that I like. This particular 4R model comes with a rubber strap instead of a metal bracelet. I already have two entries on the Stargate (7S36 and 4R36 models) so I’ll just post some pictures of the orange variant here to add on.

The strap compliments the Alpinist very well and I decided to create a picture of it.

Cellphone Lume Shots

The other day, someone asked me for a lume shot of the SRP031. I never get good lume shots with my Canon camera so I decided to make one with my Nokia cellphone. The shot turned out to be quite decent so I decided to try a few more shots with different watches.

Here they are. First, the SBDX011, my latest acquisition.
