Posting some pictures and random thoughts about these two Seiko 5 models that I purchased recently. They are known as Seiko 5 Flieger and Seiko 5 Military among Seiko fans. The model numbers are SRPH21K1 (left) and SRPG35K1 (right) respectively.
Note that they are not mounted on their original straps in these pictures.
I handled this Seiko 5 Sports briefly recently. The case design is similar to the 5KX sports model except it has a smooth and non-rotating bezel. The diameter of this watch is 40mm while that of the 5KX is 42.5mm.
Sharing pictures of four more Seiko 5 models. These are the ones that were released few months ago in different colour variants. Shown in this post are two popular green dial models, a blue dial and a red dial model. Continue reading →

Let’s take a look. Continue reading →
