In this article, we’ll be focusing on the New Seiko 5 Sports SRPG47, that we recently picked up. In terms of specifications, the Seiko 5 Sports SRPG47 is much like the Seiko 5 SRPD 22mm models, with the  42.5mm 5 Sport dive case with crown at 4 o’clock, approximately 41 hours of power reserve, 21,600 vibrations per hour (6 beats per second), as well as 100m water resistance.

Some of the designs that sets the SRPG47 apart from the other Seiko 5 Sports models is the bezel and the finishing on the dial. The white dial offers a nice waffle pattern with contrasting blue hands for great legibility.

As for the bezel, if you look closely at it, you will notice a series of rings around the bezel. If you gently touch the surface on the bezel, you will feel the presence of the rings.
