Borrowed watch – Seiko 5 Sports 100

Few days ago, I posted a shot of the 7S36B movement from a watch that I borrowed. Since the watch is still with me, I thought I might as well take the opportunity to snap a picture of it before returning it.  
 
So, here it is, a fairly recent Seiko 5 Sports 100.  


Click on the thumb to see a larger image.

This watch has a luminous dial which means no lume on the hour markers and hands. The hour and minute hand are exactly the same as those on the SKX007 except it has black frame. It is painted yellow inside and has no lume. 

It has silver colored hour markers that look very nice under the light as you can see in the picture. The silver colored second hand matches well with the hour markers although they could have used a black one. 

The circumference of the bezel is knurled and so is the crown although it doesn’t screw in. Watch comes with the usual folded link bracelet and has a list price of 232.00 Singapore dollars.

    I have just bought the Exact same watch. the Model is: SNZE17K Seiko 5 Sports 100m Automatic Luminous Watch,
    From skywatches.com.sg The Dial has pleny of lume as the whole dial is a FULL Lumibrite.
    This model is only for the Japanese Market, and as such makes it quite rare.
    Price paid:£63.00 GPB + UK Import Duty = About £105.00 All IN.
    The Dial is what makes this watch, Accuracy on mine (Regulated) +/- 4/5 Seconds A day.
    All In All a nice Seiko auto.
