Default Seiko Solar Chrono has arrived!

OK, here it is the Seiko Recraft Solar Chronograph.
Case width 43mm
Case Height 12.3mm
Lug Width 22mm
Crystal Hardlex
WR 100m

Watch is a stunner, looks nicer in person then in photos, the green dial is similar to the Seiko Alpinist. Fits nice and flat on the wrist, and the Lume is typical Seiko, albeit the hour and minute hands have the full lume, the markers, not so much

I immediately removed the stock strap (that really isn’t too bad, nice thick calf shin) and put on a set of Hirsch WR 100m leather straps that fit it perfectly. I like the color of the Hirsch better then the stock ones. Considering the 22mm lugs, stock and bracelet options will be plentiful to say the least.

I had $25 in Amazon bonus bucks which I applied and this watch delivered next day, only cost $150. Looks like a $1K watch in fit and finish and quality. Seiko does it again!
 




Should have wiped the crystal clean before this photo

Nicely done Chaz. A really sweet looking watch. Tan/brown strap goes so well with that amazing green dial. Enjoy!

Very cool dial color. I like how the subs at 9 and 3 match the case shape.
