Just last year, Seiko launched a total of twenty seven New Seiko 5 Sports SRPD models. The new collection were nicknamed the ‘5KX’ by the community, all with rotating bezels, familiar colors, a case design closely resembling the earlier discontinued “SKX007”.
Just recently, Seiko has released several more of the New Seiko 5 Sports SRPE Models. Among the new releases, there’s the smooth bezel models that are among the most discussed and inquired about.
The new smooth bezel models come in a smaller lug width size from the usual 22 mm, down to 20 mm. Unfortunately, that mean our current bracelets for the New Seiko 5 Sports would not be able to fit on the New Seiko 5 SRPE models.
Rest assured that a curved end fitted end links are in the works as we have already received a ton of request with fitted bracelets for the smooth bezel models from the New Seiko 5 Collection. Turning the watch around, you would be able to see the automatic SRPE67K1 movement through the clear case back. The movement has 24 jewels and offers a power reserve of 41 hours.
The New Seiko 5 Sports model watches are perfect in so many ways. Whether you are getting one for the value for money, reliability, or because there are so many available straps and watch bands that are made just for the Seiko models. There’s really no reason not to get one if you haven’t already. What’s there to think about when the cost is +/- 300.00 USD.
