Seiko SKA377P1 Ventura

I've had this for almost 3 weeks now and find my self choosing it a lot when I go out. of the watches I have I mainly wear a Casio to work as its indestructible and at home I would either wear a mundane black-line day date or the Seiko. The case is excellence and solid, solid enough to beat someone to death with I think (I might one day do a review of this added feature)the paint work, fit and finish is of a high standard and I'm glad to say that so far I haven’t put any major scratches on it yet. To be honest I don’t know if there is a anti reflective coating on the crystal but if there is it crap, other that that its fine and also hasn’t collected an scratches yet. The only problem that I can see with the crystal is that there is a tiny gap that runs between the crystal and case that has gathered some dirt but it’s only noticeable on seriously close inspection

And now we get to the weak point of the watch and that would be the bracelet and the clasp. For such an uncommon shaped watch it has a very boring bracelet, it also looks slightly out of proportion with the watch itself and feels a bit on the light side. A little more heft would fit the bill.

The clasp is one of the cheapest and nastiest ones I’ve come across in a long time its really light open sometimes by itself and I discovered a sharp edge after a couple of days of having it on the plus side it hasn’t pulled any hairs yet it could be much better and at least have a fold down double clasp thing I don’t know what its called but you know what I mean.

It has from what I’ve read a fairly basic and reliable movement the 5m62 no complaints.

I like the power reserve function. When the second hand reaches the 12 o clock position if you press the button at the 2 o clock position the second hand moves forward to a point and you read off the power off the silver inner dial thing and this lets you know the power reserve. Very smart.

Over all I like it. I like it lots and I'm glad I got it has a very nice face, hands buttons and of course that very unusual shape case. I'll be wearing it for a long time to come
