Seiko Sportura Kinetic Direct Drive SRG017 Watch Review
2015 is coming to us. These days I’ve looked back to the watches released in 2014. And I find this Seiko Sportura Kinetic Direct Drive SRG017 Watch, really an amazing piece.
The timepiece dial has applied hour markers and hands that are both colored in many lume (Seiko’s own LumiBrite material). I love that regardless of the various materials, the hands and hour markers are whitened from the blue face – which just looks excellent. Round the dial is really a Blancpain Fifty Fathoms-style rotating diver’s bezel, and also the steel case is 44.5mm wide, but wears more compact given its really thin profile.
In this Seiko Kinetic Direct Drive, you’ve all of the precision and longevity of a quartz movement. The particular movement within the Seiko Sportura Kinetic Direct Drive may be the caliber 5D22. The following progress from the Kinetic Direct Drive movement would be among the thermo-paid out Seiko quartz movements (present in a number of their high-end divers and Grand Seiko models), after which Spring Drive. Evidently this is incorporated in the scope of quartz crystal controlled movements.
As the Sportura SRG017 appears like a dive watch, it is not, being water-resistant to 100 meters. Not really a large deal, because of the thin profile from the case, also it is not like Seiko does not possess a thousand other watches for diving you need to or might be looking at. The Sportura SRG017 and family comes with an AR-covered sapphire crystal – that is rare for watches within this cost range.
This watch is the Seiko Sportura Kinetic Direct Drive SRG017 (also known as the SRG017P1) having a lovely blue dial and bezel. Seiko produces two other versions of the Seiko Sportura Kinetic Direct Drive having a black dial and bezel (the SRG019, also known as SRG019P1), and something having a black IP-covered case and black dial that occurs a perforated leather strap (the SRG021, or SRG021P1). The polished steel black-called SRG019 is possibly the most widely used (because black doeswith everything else), however I want individuals to think twice about the Sportura SRG017 in blue.
If you’re in america, so far as I realize it, the Seiko Sportura Kinetic Direct Drive SRG017 using the blue dial may be the only model they’re getting over from Japan. If you’re else where and have even rudimentary internet experience you are able to most likely locate fairly easily the SRG019 and SRG021 models too. Cost in america for that Seiko Sportura Kinetic Direct Drive SRG017 watch is really a reasonable $695 retail, really a reasonable price.
