  • CASE: BOLD ALL-STEEL CASE MEASURING IN AT 38mm NOT INCLUDING CROWN. CHECK OUT THAT FUN FLUTED BEZEL AND THOSE SHARP DOWNWARD SLOPING LUGS WHICH GIVES THIS ONE A NICE BEEFY FEEL ON THE WRIST. YOU GOTTA LOVE THAT DOLPHIN ON THE CASEBACK. THIS ONE WEARS MORE LIKE A 40mm DUE TO THAT THIN BEZEL AND WIDE DIAL AS WELL AS THE CHUNKY LUGS. 

 

  • DIAL: REALLY OUTSTANDING LOOK ON THIS GUN METAL SUNBURST DIAL. I LOVE THE ITALIC STYLE FONT USED BY SEIKO ON THIS ONE. MY FAVORITE DESIGN ELEMENT ARE THOSE LARGE RECTANGULAR FRAME MARKERS WHICH GIVES THIS DIAL A SENSE OF INTRIGUE. ALL TIED TOGETHER BY A HANDSOME PAIR OF DAUPHINE HANDS. 

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS ROBUST SEIKO RUNS ON A 25 JEWEL 7619 AUTOMATIC MOVEMENT. DATE IS QUICKSET BY PUSHING IN THE TOP CROWN. MOVEMENT IS ALSO HACKING WHICH WAS A RARITY TO FIND ON WATCHES FROM THIS ERA. SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN ON THIS ONE, BUT ITS BEEN RUNNING SOLID FOR ME AND KEEPING TIME.
