4R37 Seiko Superior – SSA049K

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
Thickness: 14mm

  3. Yeoman,
    hello, I know it’s been a while since you’ve posted on this watch (the superior SSA line from seiko), but was just getting ready to buy one because of the compass feature and was wondering if you knew if this watch had any sort of protection against shocks and such to make it useful for outdoors activity? How would it differ from the regular monster in this way?
