    SEIKO SCVE011 - Question ?

    While surfing the net, I unexpectedly happened upon this watch and fell in love with it. Does anyone have any first knowledge with this particular model ?
    I have never seen this model and info seems to be sparse. If one needed to change straps, the lugs look as if they do not disconnect , but I would think Seiko would not over look such a necessity. Any info or links in english would be appreciated.

    I can't say for sure (never seen one, not discussed much here either) but I'd guess the lugs are fixed and there's a springbar inbetween that you've got to get a little screwdriver in there and depress the ends out. Watch-Tanaka shows the gaps allowed for it at about 0:16



    FWIW (I know you didn't ask, lol) I'd get the SCVE005. The contrast 24hr subdial and date window look heaps better to me.

    Uhm... youtube video not showing up, Ill take a look / search on youtube, Thanks.
    Also, I agree, SCVE005 looks much better. The SS bracelet looks a flimsy, do you have any knowledge about that ?

    The strap is on a regular springbar, I have the scve009, I.e. Black with grey-ish dot.

    Oh yes, the bracelet looks terrible. Standard Seiko 5 fare, and it doesn't even really *go* with the watch IMO. Looks very businessey for a funky watch. But it's not exactly like they make you pay for it, it's an extra 200 Yen or something I think?

    I'm surprised by the pic you posted of the clasp on the strap. I was fully expecting the Seiko 5/Monster style extra thin, extra flimsy fold-over setup but that looks quite meaty. Also, they've all been discontinued in the last week or so, they used to live here....

    Domo, the SCVE005 has the 4R37 movement. I'm also looking at another watch that has the NH35 movement.
    Which movement do you believe to be better ?

    The info I can find says, the 2 movements are basically the same, with the 4R37 having the
    24hr indicator subdial.

    If I decide to purchase one of these Seikos, it will be my first Seiko watch. Hence, my constant questions Thanks for all your help.

    Agreed, the clasp on the leather looks like very good quality.
