Seiko 5 Compressor

This time round, I had the opportunity to handle the Seiko 5 Compressor. I have seen pictures of this watch popping up here and there on the Internet but I never saw it at the shops that I frequent. Recently, parallel imports arrived and I finally saw them In the flesh. Black dial variant in this post is SRPB27J and blue dial variant is SRPB25J.

Here are some pictures of the SRP625K.
