Posting some footage and random ideas about these two Seiko 5 fashions that I bought just lately. They’re often known as Seiko 5 Flieger and Seiko 5 Army amongst Seiko followers. The mannequin numbers are SRPH21K1 (left) and SRPG35K1 (proper) respectively.

Observe that they don’t seem to be mounted on their unique straps in these footage.

Seiko has launched a number of iterations of the navy and flieger fashions through the years however I believe these two are the perfect trying variations that they’ve launched to this point. I notably just like the 39.4mm diameter, hack and handwind motion and curved Hardlex crystal. After all, I don’t anticipate an entry degree Seiko to be fitted with Sapphire crystal.

At one look, each watches appear like they’re have similar circumstances however in the event you evaluate their aspect profile, you will see a slight distinction within the form of their lug tip. (Seek advice from aspect profile comparability footage close to the tip of this submit).

The navy mannequin has utilized hour markers. They’re silvery and don’t match the color of the hour and minute fingers on most variants of this watch. I selected the SRPG35K1 as a result of it is without doubt one of the few variants that has matching paint on its utilized markers.

Lastly, I discover that they arrive with spring bars with out flange and shoulder or “enamel” (discuss with picture close to to finish of this submit). The one technique to change the strap on these watch is to push the spring bars out through the drilled lugs. The benefit of those spring bars is that they don’t trigger fraying on nylon bands however they will’t be putting in on watches that don’t include drilled lugs.

Beneath are some footage of the SRPH21K1 and SRPG35K1.
