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 is a collaboration between Seiko and Japanese film director and writer, Mr. Hirotsugu Kawasaki. There are three models in this series and they have generated quite a bit of interest here in Singapore, particularly the model shown above (SRP643K).
For those who didn’t get them, I am pleased to share with you some pictures of the watches, as well as the box and printed material.
Here is a Seiko 5 that was released recently. The black/blue bezel and case design remind me of the Rolex GMT master. Of course, it is a Seiko 5 powered by the 4R36 movement.
Here are some pictures.
Here’s an aviator style Seiko 5 that was released recently. It comes with slide rule bezel and features a red tipped “aircraft” second hand. It is powered by the 4R36 movement with hack and handwind feature.
Here are a few pictures of the SRP615K.
Among the new Seiko 5 models released recently is the SRP605K shown above. There are several colour variants but this blue dialed model seems to be the nicest among them all. It has a matching blue bezel and the outline on the hands and hour marker are gold. A nice colour combination in my opinion.
This model is powered by the 4R36 movement. Here is a quick photo review:
Saw a couple of new Seiko 5 models in the local market including the SRP625K shown above. This watch is powered by the 4R36 movement and has a matte finished case. It is pretty big at 44mm excluding crown. Unlike other Seiko 5’s of this size, this one does not seem to have an over-sized minute chapter ring. It looks proportional to the size of the watch.
Here are some pictures of the SRP625K.
