Last week, I had the opportunity to put my SRP385J next to a SARX019 (watch on the right in the above picture). These two watches have similar looking case and both come with leather strap with deployant buckle. The differences are:
SARX019 vs SRP385J
– 6R15 vs 4R36 movement
– Curved sapphire crystal vs flat sapphire crystal
– enamel dial vs regular white dial
– Blue hands vs black hands
From the side, we can see that the SARX on the right has a thicker bezel. This is to provide allowance for the curved crystal.
Both have display back.
The SARX has a better quality leather strap.
(Note: the strap on the SRP385J in the picture is a aftermarket strap)
On the wrist, the SARX019 sits higher than the SRP385J since it is a thicker watch.
Good comparison, I’ve completely forgot about SRP385, nice watch. Do you were it often? So basically SARX019 is the same as SARX011, but with a little bit different dial color?
I think the difference between the SARX011 and SARX019 is the red XII marker.
The SRP385 is getting a fair bit of wrist time.
Very nice! It’ll be great if Seiko came up with an enamel dial with the dial design of the SRP. I think the closest to that was the Historical Collection 2000’s Laurel.
Ya, hope they make something like the 385 with enamel dial.
Hi is it possible for you to right article on Seiko sard 005 to ? it’s jdm watches please thank you very much
Will do so when I see it or any of its variants.
I have the SARW011 and have been wanting to switch to an aftermarket bracelet. Have you found any that work for the SARX019?
I don’t use bracelet but I think the original bracelet from the SARX001 would work. It is quite costly though.
Also, for SRP385J it is a limited edition of 1,500.
Yes, it is limited to 1500 pieces. Please refer to this post:
