Watch Handling – Seiko 5 SNZF11J

This time, I had the opportunity to handle this Seiko 5 Sports. This model has a classic design compared to the other Sports 5 models. It measures 44mm across (including crown) and comes with 22mm lug width. The Sports 5’s are definitely catching up with the SKX007 in terms of size.

There are several dial colors available but I chose to handle this one with white dial and black bezel. Besides black, blue and orange dial, white dial with black bezel is also a color combo that I like. Unfortunately, Seiko seldom make automatic 200m divers with white dial. Black, blue and orange colors are most frequently used.

The Seiko 100m Sports 5 models on the other hand come with more color options.

    Hi Yeo,The watch looks good and solid apart from the crown that seems a little too small.What is your impression on this watch since you have first hand experience?Thanks for taking time replying my question and Happy New Year 2009!Cheers,Chris

    Hi Chris,This is one of the many Sports 5\’s that Seiko has released. A new model comes out in every few months and they come in different styles and designs. I feel that this model is slightly different from the previous models because it has a classic diver design including things like the aluminum bezel insert, lumed hour makers, big and legible hour and minute hands and the SKX007 type of second hand. Everything is nice except the crown is a little too small for my liking.I use these 100m Sports 5\’s for sports activities to avoid scratching my Samurai\’s and Sumo\’s. :)Best regards,Thomas
