Seiko 5 Sports Tuxedo Black Ref. SRPA55J1

Seiko made its first watch in 1913, and 50 years later, Seiko 5 was born in 1963. In its long history, Seiko 5 has won respect, affection, and loyalty of young people from all around the world. Seiko 5 Sports offers a new opportunity to feel the spirit of the active and innovative design of that time. Seiko set out to build a watch with five attributes, from which the watch gets its name: a self-winding automatic movement, resistance to water, a day-date in a single window, a recessed crown, and a durable case.

 

Seiko 5 Sports Tuxedo Black Ref. SRPA55J1



The Seiko 5 Sports Tuxedo Black Ref. SRPA55J1 was introduced as part of the Seiko 5 collection to the Japanese market. The Seiko 5 collection is known and proven to watch enthusiasts for being reliable, affordable and well-designed.

Powered by Seiko's automatic caliber, 4R36, operating at 21,600 BPH (3 Hertz) with hacking and hand winding capabilities. It has 24 jewels with a power reserve of 40 hours.

The 100m water resistant stainless steel case measures 45mm case without the crown, with a lug width of 22mm.

The main highlight goes to the unique stepped mid-case design with a mixture of satin brush and Seiko's high polishing on the sides can be seen throughout the watch, giving it a somewhat premium yet rugged feel. The angular lugs allow the watch to wrap around the wrist on all wrist sizes, big or small.

You most probably noticed the case design that is inspired by the more expensive Seiko Prospex Samurai. Another feature of the Seiko 5 is the black diver bezel which is uni-directional.

 

Made In Japan. Automatic Calibre 4R36


The SRPA55J1 is coined the “Tuxedo Black” due to its unique dial.
Seiko 5 being a younger sub-brand of Seiko means the design is a little less conventional and daring. It has a sleek, vertical tuxedo stripe on a glossy black dial, giving it a unique elegance finishing that is similar to the Seiko SARX045 for the Presage collection.

Further, the classiness is enhanced by the applied hour markers with faceted dimension, creating a 3D effect on the dial. Small strips of Seiko’s Lumibrite are applied on top of each marker. Whereas the handsets have been generously coated with the same luminous, allowing it to glow brightly in the dark for hours

Another interesting take on the SRPA55J1 is its metallic silver “scallop” bezel. They have big solid grooves on them that allow the user to get a good grip, with the markers engraved and in white for every 10 minutes. Sitting atop of the bezel is Seiko's proprietary Hardlex crystal.


Moving on to the back, the case back features a display/exhibition back so owners can admire the movement ticking away.

The case even comes with lug holes allowing swapping of straps with ease — the Seiko 5 Sports Tuxedo Black Ref. SRPA55J1 comes with a stainless steel bracelet with three-fold clasp with secure lock and push-button release.

 

Display/Exhibition Back


The Seiko 5 Sports Tuxedo Black Ref. SRPA55J1 is probably one new watch at a fantastic price. With its excellent price point and good value for money, it is a watch that will likely find itself onto the wrist of most new watch buyers. It also makes an excellent watch for those starting on a mechanical watch.
