Seiko SNZF17 Review

  Hi guys. Today I’m writing about the Seiko SNZF17 review, or the so-called Seiko Sea Urchin watch (more on that later on). It’s also widely known as poor man’s Rolex Submariner – and no, I’m not talking about the Invicta 8926 here. While the Invicta blatantly copied the Submariner design, this Seiko SNZF17 injects Seiko’s own design characteristics (specifically Seiko 5 Sports design) into the well-loved Submariner.   Above is the Seiko SNZF17 – Sea urchin   And here is the Rolex Submariner   The end result is a watch that looks like the real thing but at a very affordable price (for anRead More →

Citizen Promaster Diver Review BN0151-09L

Seiko SKX013 Review

  In this post, I’m going to write in-depth about Seiko SKX013 review, which is a watch that’s quite popular with Seiko fans and for good reasons. I’ve had the watch for some time and I’ve gotta admit it’s definitely a gem. The dial design of the watch is traditional diver’s watch look, which is evergreen and simply good looking. The case is well constructed, beautiful polished and very comfortable on wrist.   The Seiko SKX013 looks great on a jubilee bracelet for a casual or office use   Inside the watch is the workhorse 7S26 movement, which is tried and tested to be robust andRead More →

Seiko SBDC033 Review (Sumo)

  Today I’m going to write about Seiko SBDC033 review, or better known as the Blue Sumo (or “Blumo” lol!). This watch is part of Seiko’s Prospex line up. What makes this watch special is it’s one of my favorite watches that I’ve had for the past 3 years. I’ve been guilty of giving it lots of wrist time for the simple fact that it’s such a beautiful watch – even though it’s supposed to be a diver’s watch!   But before we get into my experience with it, perhaps some of you wonder why the Sumo nickname?   It seems the nickname came from theRead More →
