There’s a crowd that carefully stays away from flashy and gimmicky watches. These are the people who adore the classic look, yet want it to double up as a great daily wear. These are the people who place comfort in wearing in high regards and a size that doesn’t seem awkward when placed against medium to thin wrists. For them, the Seiko 5 men’s automatic 100m SNZG15KI Sports watch holds a striking appropriateness and a very pertinent choice.
Seiko’s legendary lume accompanies the SNZG15KI Sports watch as well; its hands and hour markers glow in the dark quite strongly even after a brief exposure to sunlight; if it is exposed to sunlight all day, it will last through the night. Despite being a Seiko 5 that’s made in Malaysia (the K1 says that), it is no way different than a Japan-made Seiko 5 Mens Watch
, from the lume to the movement and everything in between. The master craftsmen at Seiko are all the same, wherever they are.
From its other aspects also, it is a cutting-edge timepiece that exudes a masculine appeal. The black analog dial is perfectly matched to the black canvas band, bringing a style that adds a stroke of difference to your existing watch collection. It’s large at 42mm, but not awfully large and not by any means it appears massive, due to the carefully designed flieger-styled dial, which gives it the appearance of a 40mm. Aptly matched with 22mm lugs, it brings an assuring hefty look and feel. That grants it a free access from the playground to the business banquets.
The movement of the Seiko 5 200m Automatic
is a 23 jewel 7S36 that also displays the day and the date. But it’s not an insta-date, which means, it doesn’t jump from one date to another but changes slowly around midnight. The day has two display options; either in English or in Spanish, which also changes with the date.
The 100m water resistance frees you from the worries of taking it off whenever you are planning to get your hands dirty or going for a quick dip into the pool. Of course, you cannot dive with it; that’s because of a lack of a screw-in crown. But the level of WR provided is more than good for everyday usage.
Coming to the dial, it is one of the most well thought out designs you’ll ever come across. On the outside, their are 12-hour markings, while the inner circle exhibits the 24-hours type (13 to 24) in European style. This brings a military/aviation look to the Seiko 5 Automatic Diver
100m SNZG15KI Sports watch. Covering it is a hardlex crystal that’s very hard to scratch.
Overall, you’ll be very satisfied to get the Japanese quality at a Malaysian price, more so, for it keeps better time than watches that might even cost 3-times more.
