Default Seiko 5 SARZ Unboxing

Earlier this year, Seiko celebrated the 50 year anniversary of the Seiko 5 series with a few limited editions in the SARZ series. It was a bit uncertain if they were going to be very popular but they now seem to be sold out at retailers. second hand examples have started to come out and prices are usually in line with original list price. I am not normally a fan of black watches, in particular not on black bracelets but this watch was so well made with a number of nice design ideas, I could not avoid getting one. Which one you get (027, 029 or 031) is a question of preference but I like the 029 as it had the simplest design.

Standard white box with anniversary print.



Retro style inner plastic box.



Inner box with anniversary logo. Nice balance in watch design with white and red accents.



Open heart cut out with metallic border, Well made hands hand dial markers. Excellent lume.



See tru LE caseback with the 4R38 caliber. Extra anti magnetic shielding.

I like it - a lot - very nice indeed. I wonder why they don't make more stuff like this, nice balance between details and style.

Too bad all the photos are too blurry to really see. Must have to do with Photobucket?
