You Can't Go Wrong With a Seiko Diver - Quality and Value
on 16 November 2015
I have a small watch collection consisting off a Breitling Avenger 2 Seawolf, a Hamilton Khaki Navy GMT and an old (1980s/90s) Seiko SKX Automatic Diver. I was going to breath some life back into my old Seiko and get it serviced but then thought that it would be more cost effective to buy a new watch, after-all, these Seiko Divers are very reasonably priced for the quality of watch you get. Plus, I have always wanted a solar watch. After a bit of research I decided to order the SSC021P1 Solar Chrono. I will not try to compare my lovely new Seiko to my Seawolf, they are two different beasts but what I can say is that I am not disappointed by with the SSC021P1 at all. It came in the box with all warranties and manuals and being solar it started to operate as soon as light hit the dial. The face is very aesthetically pleasing, the watch has a quality feel to it and I cannot fault it at all. I paid £157 for it and feel that I got a watch worth that and more. I personally do not like Seikos rubber diver straps, they are always too stiff and so I have replaced mine with a plain black nylon NATO strap and the watch really looks cool. If you are looking for a reliable, well made, quality diver/tool watch on a budget then I would recommend this watch or any of the other Seiko divers. Can't go wrong. Am tempted to buy another variant in the new year.
