Here’s another Seiko 5 50th Anniversary model that I handled recently. This model is characterized by its crown at the 12 o’clock position. It reminds me of the Spacewalk Sring Drive model and the Izul models even though it is not a chronograph watch. Some people call it “bullhead” while others call it “unicorn”.
Here’s a quick look.
This model is powered by the 4R37 movement. It has a 24 hour subdial and date window is located between the 3 and 4 o’clock markers. Like the other 50th Anniversary commemorative models, it has a ‘5’ numeral on the short end of its second hand.
The watch measures 43mm in diameter and 50mm from lug to lug.
Here’s a side profile shot. The lugs at the 12 o’clock side appears to be thicker than those at the 6 o’clock side. The watch has a flat crystal as shown.
The watch comes with a see-through caseback showing the movement. There is a Seiko 5 50th Anniversary logo printed on the caseback crystal.
From the caseback shot, you can see that there is only one end link on the bracelet. The other side is straight end type and attaches directly to the lug. Lug width is 22mm on both sides.
Some pictures showing the crown area of the watch.
I doubt leather strap would look good on this watch since there will be a gap at the 6 o’clock end.
The bracelet and buckle is of standard quality found on most Seiko 5 watches.
