Great and very classic looking Seiko
on 12 July 2014
This is great and classic (Blancpain)looking automatic Seiko. It has a bit of a Blancpainish FiftyFathoms look especially if you change the steel bracelet to a black leather strap..
The watch is quite heavy but moderately sized so the weight must come from the quality of the materials
The bezel has nice glossy coating and the glass is domed which both give a bit more class and expensiveness to the look. The bezel moves very easily.
The Case has nice glossy steel curved sides which is also more to the A class segment.
The movement is a very accurate quality Seiko Movement but without hand wind and hacking. This means that it can only be "charged" by wearing and to set the accurate time with the second hand you need to turn the crown, pulled in the 2nd position, just a little away from you to hold the second hand in place and hen release it in the right moment.
The week day can be changed by turning the crown away from you in first position and the date by turning towards you.
