Not sure if everyone caught these new Seiko 5 Sports watches recently.

The new watches take off the dive bezel, but have neat sunray dials.
Plus 40mm stainless steel cases, Hardlex crystals, 100m WR, stainless
steel bracelets, nylon straps, the 4R36 automatic, and much more.

Some pictures for you...

















W&W, and Seiko with even more...

Yes they are classic Tom. I'm just surprised they didn't make these new Seiko 5 Sports models 200m WR.

That's a really good point Rob.😉 Seems like so many watches have that
200m WR raring now. So 100m seems a little underwhelming nowadays.
However, have to admit, if I had one of these, they probably wouldn't even
get 100 inches. Or even 100cm beneath the water ! 😄

Man I hate that new logo. And that case shape. And that puke green color. Please bring back the dive bezels. I'll take a pass on these.

I say bring back the trusty and reliable SKX with different colored dials/bezels, 42mm and 40mm versions, sapphire crystals, keep the 200m water resistance with screw down crown, add hacking and hand winding, a high quality rubber band and Seiko will have a winner!!! I would be first in line to buy one!! (y)

I'll 2nd on that logo comment. It does look naked without a bezel, and they're handy.
I do like the black version, better yet without the day/date though.

It's funny guys, some times if it ain't broke don't fix it as they say right?! 😄

You know what was thinking would be cool?! Is if they kept that old logo.
I mean maybe it actually still is being used on some of the models. Not
actually sure, but would be neat if they had the old, and the new. That
way people could have the best of both worlds. (y)(y)

By the way guys, don't forget, they still have these bezeled beauties:

I looked at the green one there beside the orange one, that was a bright and beautiful color of green the applied indices and the size and hand set all met for a great outcome. I may return and try it on when my wife is present for commentary. I was looking at a steel and black turtle and it was there under glass too.

That one really IS sharp AW ! 😀 Can see that it is a neat green too
by the way. With it not being too light, or too dark, and just right. Kind
of almost has a Hulk look to it, but maybe mixed with a little forest, or
evergreen. 😎 ..The Turtle sounds excellent too though !

Thinking your wife will like both of them sir, and be a big help honestly. (y)(y)
