Seiko has discontinued a number of 6R15 models and at the same time released a couple of new models using the same movement. This time round, I had the opportunity to handle a recent model from the Mechanical line. This model, SARG005 is powered by the 6R15 movement and looks very much like the 6R15 Alpinist model due to its case shape, inner compass bezel and crown at the 4 o’clock position.
The SARG005 however is bigger than the ALpinist at 40mm excluding crown.
Here are a couple of features of the SARG005.
Dial with Arabic numerals.
Signed crown at 3 o’clock position but does not screw in.
Crown at 4 rotates the inner compass bezel.
See through caseback.
Comes with a thick padded 20mm leather strap.
No Seiko marking on the buckle.
Here are a few more of pictures.
There are several variants of this model. Here’s a black dial variant, SARG007.
Other variants can be found in this post:
