Seiko made a solar powered chronograph diver that has gained popularity among Seiko fans. Orient also has a battery powered 200m chronograph that is worth taking a look. Here’s a quick photo review of the watch.
Orient sponsored Subaru Tecnica International Inc (STI) in the 2011 Nürburgring 24-hour race that took place in June 2011. This is the third consecutive year in which Orient collaborated with STI in this event. The 2011 Orient X STI commemorative watches will consist of a quartz chrono and a recently announced M-Force model.
Here, I will take a look at the quartz chronograph model, the first Orient X STI model that uses a quartz movement.
The watches that are featured on this blog are usually automatic watches and occasionally, I do post some battery operated quartz watches. This time round, I handled a very nice Solar powered chronograph diver made by Seiko and would like to share with you. The model number is SSC017P.
There are several colour variants and this one I handled comes with black dial with blue/black bezel combination.
I had the opportunity to handle a Brightz Phoenix chronograph by Seiko. There were several colour variants under this design and they were supposed to replace the older 8R28 models. Most of them were limited to either 500 or 700 pieces. This model is limited to 700 pieces.
Here is a photo review showing you the quality of its finishing.
This time round, I would like to post a photo review of Seiko’s first 8R28 chronograph, SRQ001. This watch was introduced during Basel World 2008 and is limited to 2000 pieces worldwide.
