This time round, I had the opportunity to handle a new Seiko Superior model, SSA049K. This model is powered by the 4R37 movement characterized by a 24 hour indicator sub-dial.
Although not a diver, the design of this watch is very similar to that of the Seiko Monster. Here are some pictures.
– Textured dial with hour and minute markers on a separate layer.
– The hour hand has red coloured frame instead of the minute hand.
– Triangle under the 12 o’clock marker is not a GMT hand.
– Crown at 2 sets date and time.
– Crown at 4 rotates inner compass bezel.
– Both crowns are non screw in.
– Side profile very similar to the Monster.
– Top bezel makes 60 clicks per round.
– See-through type.
– Straight end type (no end links).
List Price (for reference only):
– SGD593.90 inclusive of GST.
Diameter excluding crown: 43mm
Lug width: 22mm
