What an incredible thread to meander through!

The Seiko 5 line of watches simply amazes me. The designs are so awesome, the quality fantastic, and all of that for a steal of a price.

Here's mine, SNKK17K1, which I just received from Jomashop last week.




superb Seiko lume, too...


Accuracy of +1.5 seconds per day. Not bad. Might tweak it just a tiny little bit.

Original bezel insert (green with silver numerals) did not WOW me. Just a bit too ordinary... and too much green.

So... MOD TIME! New bezel insert. Like an entirely different watch now. I love it. Bolder, richer character. What a difference a bezel insert can make!

So orange is your thing.

Good find.
I don't know what color to call the markings... yellow-ish 'range, I suppose?

I just like the bolder presence with the new bezel insert vs. the meek and mild former bezel insert. To my taste, the green was just a bit much in the original rendition - toned down now. Personal taste is all it is.

My new Urchin two-tone. I combined the middle case and chapter ring from an SNZF17 with the dial, bezel and crown from an SNZF22, the seconds hand is from a Sumo and it has a DD sapphire from CT. The inexpensive president style bracelet will do until I find one I like better :)

Such a simple, economical watch... and I LOVE the beautiful, elegant design!

However, I really want to be able to hand wind and to hack for precise time setting, so, the 7S26 movement must go.

I am upgrading the movement to an NH35, for hacking and ability to hand wind.
