Seiko 5 Field Watch, Companion in Every Challenging Activity
Seeing the history of the field watch or usually called as military watch, it jumps back to many years when the watch was originally crafted for soldiers in trenches during World War I. Since the timepiece is not only for additional items of clothing, it must withstand wear and tear for war equipment.
Therefore, every Seiko 5 field watch in the specialist style line-up is made to hold out against any tough conditions. Another interesting fact is this line-up is intended for the Japanese Domestic Market (JDM).
If you are the type of person who loves being challenged and a fan of Japanese products, these are Seiko 5 field watch collections you must have!
Seiko 5 Sports “Sports Style” Military Green 40 Ref. SBSA055
Seiko 5 field watch has been distributing the next level of reliability and durability to their customers since 1963. Introducing the recent launch, Seiko 5 Sports “Sports Style” Military Green 40 Ref. SSA055 comes in a very fresh look. I just realized that the case is slimmer with only 40 mm and a thickness of 11.5 mm.
For some people, probably it is still too big, but Seiko has decreased the case diameter, 2 mm smaller than the predecessor. The lug width still remains 20 mm. I feel totally comfortable wearing this watch on my wrist due to its proper dimension.
Like every field watch that has great movement, this series is powered by Seiko 4R36 caliber to increase the precision, a new generation from Seiko that provides you 21,600 beats per hour and power reserved over 40 hours. It also includes an anti-diashock and etachron regulator.
Seiko presents the “fresh-minimalist look” throughout the matte green dial and nylon strap, that brings the philosophy as strong as the army. Talking about the bracelet, nylon material is easy to use, practical, and also durable. It was originally used for the British army for the past years in World War II. Such a rugged construction!
The design is simpler than any Seiko 5 series since it does not have a rotating bezel. When you take a closer look, there are only three most important parts that sit on the dial, the Seiko’s logo on top, the word automatic on the bottom, and the date window at the 3 o’clock position.
On the other side, you could find the silver accents on its hour markers and the two hands, covered with Seiko LumiBrite that glows beautifully in green colour when there is no light at all. The crystal uses Hardlex material to prevent it from any scratches.
With all features I mentioned above, plus a 100 m water resistance, it proves that Seiko 5 Sports “Sports Style” Military Green 40 Ref. SSA055 suits your adrenaline-rush activities, such as hiking, canyoning, skydiving, and so on. Go get this Seiko 5 field watch to accompany you in every challenging activity here.

This timepiece can stand in any conditions since it is built in a 316L stainless steel case. With only 40 mm diameter and 11.5 of thickness, this slim watch measurer is strong enough for your companion in outdoor areas.

No need to be afraid if you can’t read the time in darkness because they are all painted with Lumibrite that glows brightly when there is no light. Moreover, it is finished with a satin, bringing your look more outstanding and classy.
Well, what’s more? Although this field watch doesn’t have a rotating bezel, it still allows you to swim up to 100 meter water depth. I also adore the type of crown which has a significant role in a wristwatch. The push-pull crown can be manually wounded at any time.
