With 2021 being its 140th year anniversary, Seiko have released several watch collections to commemorate their success. One of the collections released for the 140th anniversary would be the blue-and-white-themed models, which consist of Prospex, Presage, Astron, and 5 Sport families.
Each of the watches are presented in a white and blue themed, as well as produced in limited quantities. Prospex (SPB213), Presage Sharp Edged Series (SPB223), Astron GPS Solar (SSH093), and Seiko 5 Sports (SRPG47).
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.
All in all, the Seiko 5 Sports watches are definitely recommended for those who are looking for a sporty, and yet elegant watch that literally works in any occasion. This not so limited edition of 11,000 pieces SRPG47 can be yours for 295.00USD.
