This time round, I had the opportunity to look at the latest 200m diver from the Seiko Street Series. This is a solar powered shrouded diver that is very similar to the ones that I posted previously. There are three colour variants namely blue (SNE533P1), green (SNE535P1) and grey (SNE537P1).
Let’s take a look.
As mentioned on the Seiko website, the design of this model echoes that of the iconic shrouded diver from 1975 except it is executed with a modern style. It is smaller and lightweight, thus making it more suitable for daily use.
The watch uses low key colours on its case, bezel, strap and dial. However, it has the same legibility as the rest of the Seiko divers due to its large and lumed hour markers and wide hands.
Other features include camo pattern dial, circular lines on the bezel insert and leather texture on the silicon strap.
Compared to the solar shrouded divers that I have posted previously (refer to links below), the Street Series diver has a modern style design while the ones I posted previously are of traditional style. Besides having different colour schemes, the other differences are:
– traditional bezel vs modern style bezel
– traditional hour and minute hands vs modern style hour and minute hands
Below is a picture of the traditional style solar shrouded diver for your reference. Please visit the links below for more.
Another difference I observe is the buckle and keeper. The traditional style solar shrouded has a beefier buckle and a steel keeper while the Street Series has a regular buckle and a silicon keeper.
