Passed by Hing’s Watch and Pen Centre last Friday and was introduced to two new Seiko 5 Sports models that were released in the Singapore market recently.
For those living in the other parts of the world, let me take this opportunity to update you.
The first model (shown above) reminds me of the 6159-7001. It has gold accents on its dial, hands and bezel. When looking at the watch itself, I didn’t really notice the gold accents. However, they became obvious when I saw this picture through my cellphone. This watch could be an alternative (or temporary fix) for those who can’t locate an actual 6159 or a SBDX003 but want to have a watch with gold accents.
It is available in several colour variants including this black one below.
Here’s the next model. There is something about this watch that makes it different from the other Seiko 5 Sports model. Do you notice it?
The special thing about this model is, it does not have a rotating bezel unlike most Seiko 5 Sport model.
Below is another variant of this model on bracelet.
Check out the side profile. Not exactly the same but the Seiko Ananta comes to mind when I saw this.
Here’s the caseback. Both models are powered by the 7S36 movement.
