Seiko X Nano Universe – SCVE027

SCVE027_1

Had the opportunity to handle this Seiko X Nano Universe limited edition Spirit model, SCVE027. This watch belongs to my friend, Jackson Ham (H2 Hub, Century Square) who is kind enough to lend it to me. Seiko has released several variants with different colour combinations. All of them are powered by the 4R35 (date only) movement and are limited to either 300 or 500 pieces.

This particular model is limited to 500 pieces and is characterized by its grey coloured dial and bezel. Here is a quick review.

Dial:
The dial is grey in colour and there is black outline on the hour markers as well as the hour and minute hands, making it pretty legible. The minute chapter ring is quite big, like what you see in some Seiko 5 models.

Bezel:
This part is made of plastic and rotates in both directions without click. In other words, the bezel action is similar to the Fieldmaster or any Seiko with compass bezel.

Case:
The case is stainless steel with a matte finishing. It feels smooth and very nice to touch.

  2. sorry the plastic bezel is a deal breaker, did they have a high school student in mind while designing it?. i would go for new titanium solar divers SBDJ009 also domestic japanese issues for a lit bit extra.
