The full bracelet is quite long so it’s likely that you’ll have to size it down to fit your wrist properly. Unfortunately, if you’ve never adjusted a pin bracelet before, perhaps it’s best to take it to a local watchmaker or jeweler to have it done for you for a small fee. Watch sizing can only be generally carried out on watches with metal bracelets, steel, titanium, gold, etc.

In this Seiko 5 Sports review, we will take a closer look at the reference SRPD55K1. Seiko 5 Sports AutomaticSRPD55K1 Movement The mechanism within the watch is 4R36 automatic movement which is built in house and the calibre is comprised of 24 Jewels and a 41-hour power reserve. The chapter ring is the same color and is treated the same way as the dial. It has white hash marks which mark every minute. The hands If you require an extra large bracelet or you are in need of additional links these may be supplied at an additional cost. The Seiko 5 Sport series was first released in 1963, its creation aimed at providing stylish yet affordable automatic watches to the younger generation of the 60s. 50 years later, the Seiko 5 Sport has been reborn, each model showcasing the key traits of the original models as well as new, updated features.Lastly, the lugs possess lugs holes that make it a breeze to change the bracelet or strap. In fact, I was able to change the bracelet on this SBSA005 with just a paperclip. Changing the length of the bracelet, i.e. removing links, is a whole different story (more on this later.) Diver’s Bezel This SBSA005 (and the SRPD55K1) comes equipped with a three-link stainless steel bracelet. Like the case, the bracelet also has a brushed finish on its top side and high polish on the sides of the bracelet.

Note: The model used for this review, the Seiko SBSA005, possesses a specific reference number that denotes it as a Made in Japan iteration. This same style is available under a different reference SRPD55K1 when it is not made in Japan. The differences between a Japanese market version of this model and the international market version are minimal and only cosmetic. Throughout this review, I’ll note when there is an aspect unique to this Made in Japan model. The new Seiko 5 sports watch collection is a completely new line of models, released by Seiko in 2019. Since its release, this collection has proven to be a great success. A common project for many Seiko enthusiasts is to modify SKX models from Seiko and make them unique by replacing parts. The introduction of this new Seiko 5 Sports collection also meant the discontinuation of the now almost legendary and appreciated SKX007. Additional details of note on the dial are the new Seiko 5 Sports logo at 12 and the italicized Automatic text at 6, both of which are in silver.The new Seiko 5 Sports series definitely offers a vast collection with many color schemes and variations. With that said the Seiko 5 Sports really is a hit. At an affordable price, you really do get a qualitative automatic watch from Seiko. In this post, we are reviewing one of the models in Seiko’s 5 sports collection – the referenceSRPD55K1. We understand the importance of sizing the length of your watch bracelet or strap to provide the perfect fit. Our simple to use watch sizing guide allows you to measure the size of your wrist from the comfort of your own home. You can always look for videos online on how to size a Seiko 5 Sports bracelet but it does take some skill and tools. That being said, perhaps this relatively affordable Seiko is not a bad watch to practice on and learn how to do it yourself. I’d argue that, when devising the 5 Sports collection, Seiko began with a subtly-colored piece such as this SBSA005 and then expanded into other bracelets, dial/bezel colors, case coatings and more. Considering this, I don’t think it’s unfair to say that this watch is the epitome of the Seiko 5 Sports collection. Ensuring that this watch stays strapped to your wrist is a very secure double-button release folding clasp. While it’s stamped steel and perhaps a bit “jangly”, the clasp will not open unless the two buttons are depressed so there are no concerns of this watch flying off your wrist if you’re engaging in some sort of extreme activity.
