This is a serious divers watch with a a very refined classic style. The watch is slightly on the larger side, and weighs in at 165 grams. Seiko is known for creating some really high quality products, and has been doing so for an astonishing 125 years! They know what their doing when it comes to creating a timepiece for a specific purpose such as diving. A dive watch should be slightly larger then what you would normally wear for casual purposes, you want to be able to distinguish the face of the watch and its numeric system easily under water.
Build and Design
Seiko takes great pride in their craftsmanship and it really shows in this SRP307 Classic Automatic Dive Watch. The entire watch is made with high quality stainless steel, from the clasp, to the case, band and bezel. The display is analog, and sealed in by a hardlex window. The band length comes in men’s standard, which of course is fully adjustable with a pin-tool, but I recommend you have a jeweller adjust it for you if your not familiar with this procedure.
One thing I really like about this watch is the light, it allows for an excellent illumination as its reflected off of the polished stainless steel on the inside of the bezel. I can go on and describe the features of this SRP307 Classic Automatic Dive watch, but the fact of the matter is that this watch feels like its worth a lot more then what you will pay for it. The over all feel when you hold or wear this watch is of amazing robust quality, similar to the sense you would get from holding a timepiece in a way higher price range, such as a Rolex or Omega.
Seiko SRP307 Comfort
The comfort of this dive piece is outstanding, as I had mentioned earlier it is heavy, but for some reason does not feel so when worn (at least for me). I’m not a huge fan of big watches, and this SRP307 does not feel like one. The fit is tight and secure, but does not feel restricting in any way, the band forms to my wrist very well. One other thing to note is I have not had any instances of hair pulling on my arm, and if your a watch wearer you probably know how bothersome this can be. The inside of this Seiko Classic Dive watch is very smooth and well polished, with very limited space between links.
