Dear fellow watch lovers!
First of all: if my English is lacking please forgive me I'm from the Netherlands and wished our high school English class would actually meant something of value.
Second: This is my first ever post on a watch forum!
Third: This is my first Automatic watch!
Not even is this the first auto it's also the first seiko I have ever owned. For years I have known that Seiko is one of the better quality brand out there. But somehow and please forgive me I never actually bought one. As I have only a few years left in college (lets hope so) I decided its time for me to grow up and buy an actual real watch instead of the many designer brands quartz watches.
So I bought my first automatic and not only this I ordered a domestic japanese model from Chino Watch Japan the SARB021.
Movement: 6R15 23J Automatic (with Hand winding and Hack function)
Accuracy: +25/-15 sec/day (according to seiko) ( I saw on the web that some experienced 3 sec!, I don't no how you guys test this?)
Power reserve: 50 Hour
10 ATM water resistance
Case Diameter: 38.5mm
See-through back: Hardlex (Seiko)
First thing I noticed was: Wow this watch shines!
The saphire glass on the watch is realy shiny so are the kitkat choclate like hour markers on the dial.
But its just right, not to much in my opinion.
The dial is well balanced and even with the shinyness its still simple and elegant, dressy jet a thick casual.
I never owned a watch of this price before but once I held it in my hand (after a long awaited fedex delivery) it felt well build and solid.
i actually have nothing more to say at this time then just wow! This watch is great!
Also this review just says it all, It made me buy the watch;)
But to give some input I will post my own pictures here. Please share yours and add something to this attempt to review;).
