TC Yeo’s Seiko Sportura Chronograph

TC Yeo sent me a picture of his newly acquired Seiko Sportura chronograph. He says the watch wraps around his wrist nicely and the multicoated sapphire crystal is almost invisible.

Below are some other variants I have posted before.

    I have one of these, the bracelets are great. The sapphire crystal seems no more or less reflective than any other AR flat sapphire in a swiss watch to me. The bezels are very nice however, with the white numbers etched deeply into the black pvd.

    It feels like a lot of though has gone into this watch what with the three level dial design and screw in crown. The thing that stood out for me is that the 1, 5, 7 and 11 are white in colour (not luminous) but the 2, 4, 8 and 10 are silver in colour. Why would they do that?

    My only worry is the chrono pushers stick out a lot.

      Thanks for sharing, Peter. No idea why they used a mixture of white and silver colour on the hour markers but this is definitely a very nice chronograph. The Barcelona version is my favourite.
