Question Seiko SRP789K1?

Just joined the forum and purchased my first Seiko Prospex Diver. I got the SRP789k1 and was wondering who else has this watch and what your thoughts on it are? I'm waiting on mine to arrive here in the next day or so. Post some photos of yours if you are of a mind to.

I am a BIG fan of the SRP series "Cushion Case Re-Issues" one and all.



They are a tad larger than the 6306/6309 divers of days gone by, of which I am also a big fan. Plus you get modern reliability, hacking and hand winding with automatic, screw down crown, etc. Very moddable and a zillion bracelet and strap choices.


Congrats !


I have a few definitely not an up to date photo but it works to show the idea:

Good choice, expect -20 secs per day.

Wow, very nice collection there! I can only dream! Living on a fixed budget from being disabled, makes it a little hard to fund those things my eyes catch.

What is that all black Seiko? Really like the looks of it!

Do not expect an automatic watch to keep accurate time similar to a quartz watch. They can and do gain or lose so much time (usually seconds when well regulated) per day. Some movements being more accurate then others.

Watch accuracy is usually measured in seconds per day (SPD) + or -. It should be a perfectly reliable, accurate Seiko diver. Congratulations. Check chapter ring alignment (the outside ring on the dial) when you get it if it's too far off exchange it while under warranty. Occasionally you'll get one out of alignment.

This is the SRPC49 I have it mounted on a Strapcode Angus bracelet designed especially for this model.

Well, she arrived and after a quick trip down to my local jewelers to have the band adjusted to fit me, I set date/time. So far, I really love the way it wears on my wrist!

Thanks, I haven't taken it off since getting it adjusted and I must say, I like the way it wears and the weight of it.

Nice! How has it kept time for you? So far, mine doesn't look to have lost anything and I wear it from the time I get up 'til bedtime which is usually, 10-11pm.
