Seiko 5 Sports Suits Style Vintage Green Ref. SBSA019
Moving to the last option of Seiko 5 vintage watch, there is Seiko 5 Sports “Suits Style” Vintage Green Ref. SBSA019 that would completely amaze you in features and design. As everyone knows, Seiko 5 sports line was first born in 1963 to offer Seiko enthusiasts some innovations and I’m so excited that most of their collections are now available as Japan Domestic Products (JDM) which means the quality is much better than the non-JDM watch products
Then, why should you give your attention to JDM watches? It's all because all JDM collections must follow Japanese government standards and regulations in production. This is the reason why the JDM timepiece has more value than the non-JDM market.
The movement is powered by Caliber 4R36, the same as Seiko 5 Sports Specialist Style Gold Vintage Ref. SBSA072 series above. When another timepiece only provides a calendar indicator in English, this Seiko 5 vintage watch allows you to select the date by yourself in an English or Kanji character, both are available, according to your preference.
Let’s discuss the most interesting part, the dial. A vintage watch doesn’t always use a retro color palette, just like what Seiko bravely offers you ⎯an unusual things, utilizing sunburst fume green on its dial.
To balance the whole appearance, the caramel tone is painted on the hour markers and the two hands. Both are coated with Seiko’s faux patina LumiBrite that lets the wristwatch glow in the darkness. Under the 12.00 o’clock position, there is a Seiko’s logo that sits symmetrically with the word “automatic” at the bottom. Once you wear it, the final looks bring out the sense of a vintage-army.
The smooth rotating bezel comes in the same color as the dial. The dial itself is covered by Seiko’s Hardlex ⎯a crystal material which ends up in both satin-brushed and polished finishing⎯ to avoid any scratches.
What makes this timepiece more unique is the strap material. For me this is a great way to add a stainless steel milanese style mesh bracelet since it's more adjustable than any other strap because the band has a special pressure clasp. Moreover, this type of strap is easy to clean, and able to take the temperature of your skin.
The whole dimension is not different from the two previous series and still provides you a 100 meter water resistance. So, complete your collection with this Seiko 5 Sports “Suits Style” Vintage Green Ref. SBSA019 with only $398 USD here.
