Seiko Presage 2020

Post by koimaster » June 29th 2020, 10:14am

In October 2019, Seiko launched Seiko Presage Chronograph 55th Anniversary Limited Edition SRQ031J1 (or SARK015 if you are in Japan). This special model was made to commemorate the brand's first mechanical hand-wound Caliber 5719 chronograph movement in 1964. This movement was paired with the 1964 Seiko Crown Chronograph, Seiko’s first mechanical chronograph watch.

A lot of write-ups about that limited edition timepiece advocate that Seiko was 'commemorating' the 1964 Seiko Crown Chronograph. However, it was the movement that was being recognised (for more, visit this article I wrote). I was actually surprised that a lot of people got that wrong. Even the design of the SRQ031J1 looks different when compared to the 1964 Seiko Crown Chronograph.

Okay, so I'm reading the review and checking out Seikos on my favorite Seiko site, shoppinginjapan.net.

I see this SZSB015 that's similar to the SARB033. I'm checking the specs and instead of hardlex crystal, the spec says Hard Rex Glass.

I can handle Hard Rex glass but those hour markers make me want to blow chunks. 😂

I find tv watches to be like the guys who raise their truck you need a fricken ladder to get in. It’s a attempt to look cool... that’s all.
