Seiko SNZF17 Review

Seiko 5 SNZF17 or The Sea Urchin Hi guys. Today I’m writing about the Seiko SNZF17 review, or the so-called Seiko Sea Urchin watch. It’s also widely known as poor man’s Rolex Submariner for its Submariner-inspired design – and no, I’m not talking about the Invicta 8926 here.

Seiko SBDC033 Review (Sumo)

A Tale Of The Watch That I’ve Owned For 3 Years – The Seiko Sumo Review Today I’m going to write about Seiko Sumo 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, perhapsRead More →
