Seiko Solar Mens Scuba Divers Sports Watch SNE107P1


Seiko Solar Mens WatchProfessional diving embraces quartz models due to one reason: They are way lighter than their mechanical counterparts. Formerly, when quartz translated to batteries, wearing a quartz watch underwater spelt some amount of trouble; you never knew if the battery is gonna conk on the way. With solar quartzes making into the scene, the fear has been taken care of. They are slim pickings and some are pretty interesting, like the Seiko Velatura .

This is the perfect pick for them looking for a traditional case shape with something with a 3o’clock crown and a price that doesn’t choke you senseless. That way, the Seiko SNE107 is a safe spin.

The Seiko SNE107 is one of the 2011 solar lines of watches that Seiko released. It’s a surprise how Seiko managed to outline its specs according to ISO6425 certification at this price, but there’s no denying a divers watch only gets better with it. It also shows the manufacturer’s commitment towards the type, something which most do not exercise in their budget and entry-level models.

With Seiko Flightmaster, it is surprising that they invest extra expenses for everything they consider necessary for a watch that’s made for a particular job. The Diver’s text on the dial is therefore, not just for show. Even the good-sized fluted crown announces its true Diver heritage.

But! This is not the type of watch that you either love or hate. You have to give it time to grow on you; maybe, a month or two. The stock bracelet is a great-looking one; however, if you really want to use it for underwater purposes, replace it with an aftermarket NATO or natural rubber strap. It has on advantage: Silicone-like flexibility with the durability of resin! The drilled lug holes make strap changing a breeze.

The size of the watch is another sensible aspect of it. At 42mm, it is neither small for big wrists, nor big for thinner wrists. The size simply imparts an elegance that complements the case size. All those are collectively termed as the Seiko Divers, well-programmed into the overall design of the SNE107P1, including the lume and the dark, charcoal-coloured dial. Try it under all kinds of lights; you can never spot the solar panel underneath. A pleasant surprise that comes with the SME107P1 is the blue SAT and red SUN peeping from under the DAY window, but this isn’t good for them with a weak eyesight.

But all in all, the SNE107 is recommended. Not the kind that you’ll pass down to your next generation as an heirloom, but definitely the one you’ll give your next generation when they want to get serious with some or other form of the water sports. Till then, have a great deal of fun wearing it.


Seiko 5 Automatic 21 Jewels SNK649K1 SNK649K Mens Watch

Seiko 5 Automatic WatchThe value of a good watch depends on multiple factors. From the comfort of wearing it to its flawless performance and lasting; in simple words, it should be a watch that you’ll feel confident to wear. Or placed in a slightly different manner, it must be able to ENDURE.

From all those aspects, the Seiko 5 Automatic 21 Jewels SNK649K1 SNK649K Mens Watch becomes your default, go-to watch; the kind you take off and throw on the table before rolling off in your shack at the end of a hard day or grab it on the go before jump starting a hectic, busy day. You do not want any frills or flashiness to come in between at that time; the top performer in your firm doesn’t necessarily have to be an absolute Adonis! He must be strong, able to take hardships, should never complaint and still stay productive without failing for a single day. The Seiko Velatura 21 Jewels SNK649K1 SNK649K Mens Watch is just that; its 7S26C, 21 jewel automatic movement and 99 feet water resistance being the primary driving forces behind. It’s a mainstream automatic movement currently in its 19th year of production and its Magic Lever (bi-directional winding) makes up for its lack of manual winding. Dedicated winding bridges are not half as efficient; with aid from the brass bushing (at one end) and a rachet wheel (on the other) and two extra jewels than its predecessor 7002 series calibre support, its third and escape wheels.

The Seiko Sportura is an expression of a no-nonsense, serious and dedicated corporate style that carries a lot of weight. Its looks are timeless and go for anything between strictly formals and power dressing; so either way, whatever may be the dress code, you save money with buying just one watch. Functional, yet it manages to be fashionable and versatile.

Many of you must be asking by now if this is the best watch or, if it is the best model that Seiko makes at this price point? Is it the most accurate?

To put it simply: YES and NO!

It all depends if you are looking at it from the viewpoints given above and the purposes the Seiko Premier Automatic has been designed for. If you are looking for a solid, hard as a rock and reliable (in its every sense) timepiece to get your job done that doesn’t cost you your two front teeth or your right eye, then this has got to be it! You may even call it a tool watch for its fit to be taken to the field despite its so domestic looks. Throw it around on gravels and in mud and sand; you do not have to worry about it getting bumped and bruised.

Casio Analog Digital Marine Gear AMW-710D-1AVDF AMW-710D-1AV Mens Watch

Casio Analog Mens WatchBeing trendy and functional at the same time is not quite addressing polar opposites as some might think; looking at the Casio Analog Digital Marine Gear AMW 710D 1AV rests all those doubts and worries. It comes loaded as far as useful features and functions are concerned. To start with, there’s a moon phase indicator along with a tide graph, which earned it the designation of the Marine Gear. Without a precise prediction of these two, no watch is worth taking to the seas. Telling precisely about the ocean tides according to the phase of the moon is a move that can make or break your strides in oceans and also determines if you’ll return to the shore empty handed or with a big catch!

The 12/24 hour format is not so important to the common man unless he’s used to stay in complete darkness; neither the 1/100 second stopwatch. But well, they can mean real fun, provided you know how to use them. It can measure two different elapsed times at once, along with split time. If you are into swimming or running or jogging, this can become your most useful tool. Its compact dimensions and less than 149g weight is an added advantage; it will never restrict your free movements.

Keeping the technicalities aside, let’s focus on its aesthetics. The Casio Chronograph Alarm Gear AMW 710D 1AV Marine Gear is an impressively dazzling watch; credits go to its metallic design which, to say the least, is an eye catching one. Radiating a sportive aura through its black/orange combination, it’s also built tough to resist and swallow a lot of abuse in the field; its scratch-resistant mineral glass, an aluminium bezel and premium quality stainless steel construction (for the case and the band) responsible.

There are some who expect a high-end watch to run on solar power and hence, might shun the Casio Analog AMW 710D 1AV for this. But the catch here is: It also shoots the price up by several notches and when there stays a hefty price factor attached, you don’t feel like putting the watch into harsh usage. That takes away the utility part and you must now realise that the Casio Chronograph Edifice is not a mere showpiece or a fashion accessory. Agreed it’s more than enough to fire up the fashion ramps, but that’s not what it’s meant for exactly. None would possibly throw in such useful functions as the Multi-Function Alarms, the Hourly Time Signals and a Full Auto-Calendar (set to run till 2099) just to show people how tech savvy you are. However, panic not, even with the functions used full tilt, your Marine Gear won’t need a change of batteries for at least five years.
