Thread: Seiko with decent hands.....

  1. #1

    Seiko with decent hands.....

    .. this SNE543P1 (£370 RRP) arrived today and I was taken with the hand shape, very MMish.


    Also I liked the textured dial and creamy lume, my pictures are poor when it comes to colour definition but the colour is subtle in real life.

    I was thinking of getting the new Arnie and I will eventually but this model really took my eye. It is the same size as the newish golden solar diver at 47mm diameter and 45.5mm top to tale (not including the lugs) and abouot 12mm thick.

    Anyway here a few photo's...


    Good size for my big wrists



    Next to the SNE498P1

    Is that the Ďstreetí series? Iíve also seen them in grey and blue. Really like them but wear too small on my wrists (Iím one of those people with large flat wrists that suits a big watch). Hadnít realised how nice the handset is

    No I don't think it is, the 'Street Series' appears to have three models (Navy, Grey and Olive) different plots and hands.



    It is more akin to the new 'Lowercase' limited series produced for 'United Arrows' - quite like the gold version.

    Thanks LuvWatch for your post, saw it last night and agree with you the hand and marker combination is a good one
    I also like the colours as they are a little different
    also reminded me of my old Frankenmonster to some degree,
    anyway I um and ah'd last night and this morning before going for it an ordering one this afternoon

    I know it will probably wear too big and the strap will definitely be too long but I had to take a punt, delivery now confirmed for the morning

    You've talked me into it lads. Probably a bit big for me too, but I really like the look of it, and these tuna style watches often wear a bit smaller than the spec suggests, so I might get away with it.

    Very nice, was thinking of buying one of the 'Street Series' tunas which are similar apart from the dial. But I prefer that one.

    Cheers, thanks again for your post I would have missed this otherwise
    really like the colour scheme, ordered a dark green Zuludiver rubber strap, as I expected the Seiko rubber is a tad too long
    Quality is spot on for the money, nice bezel action, crown did feel a little bit flimsy/wobbly when setting date & time but solid when screwed in

    Seiko produce a smaller Tuna in loads of cool colourways, I buy one and it looks tiddly on my wrist - so now I fancy one of the really expensive MM full fat versions instead . Noooooooooo!!! Damn my chunky wrists!!!!!!

    Still loving the Prospex, couldn't get on with the original strap (too long). Briefly tried a rubber Zuludiver which wasn't quite right for me.
    So yesterday I ordered an Erika's original in Sand colour. I think I may have unnecessary spent €65 as I found this in my strap box today, a Hadley Roma with pvd buckle...I think this is the one (for now )




    my crap phone pictures don't do the colour combination justice

    I do like that, and I like the green strap. The Seiko silicone straps are I suppose too long for me also, but they are so comfortable they tend to stay on. I have the sea grapes turtle with a similar green strap, but should have bought a solar like this really as the turtle tends to stay in the box because I can't be bothered setting time, day, and date just to wear it for a day.
