This time round, I had the opportunity to handle the 6R15 version of the 62MAS reissue. This is a local specimen and hence the model number is SPB051J. The model number in Japan is SBDC051. It was released along with the SBDX019 in 2017.
This time round I had the opportunity to look at a new diver from Seiko. People have already nicknamed it “Mini Turtle”. This variant I have on hand is a PADI version, SRPC41K. It was released in Singapore in December 2017 along with three regular editions – SRPC35K (black dial with bracelet), SRPC37K (black dial with rubber strap), SRPC39K (blue dial with rubber strap).
It has been years since I last posted a Seiko 5 on this blog. Therefore, this time round, I am posting one and it is one which I like and would recommend. Being a Seiko 5, there are many colour variants of this watch and the variant I have on hand is the SRPB19K.
This time round I had the opportunity to handle another 4R57 based Seiko Presage model. This model was released earlier than the cocktail model and comes in two variants – SSA337J (grey dial) and SSA339J (black dial).
The Seiko Samurai is a popular 200m diver released by Seiko in the mid 2000s. Seiko released them in titanium and stainless steel with the titanium version as a JDM model and the stainless steel as a worldwide model. I’m not sure when was the ss version discontinued but I do know the Ti model was discontinued in 2008 and became very rare over the years.
This year, Seiko reissued the Samurai in stainless steel worldwide. Shown above is the PEPSI variant (SRPB53K) that I had the opportunity to handle.
