This 38mm stainless steel Grand Seiko SBGV019G replica watch is a beautiful mid-sized dress watch with amazing case finishing typical for the brand: beautifully polished lugs and edges that look as sharp as a blade. The dial has a silver/off-white color that gives a beautiful contrast with the high-polished applied hour markers and hands. Besides “Seiko” at 12 o’clock, it also shows “Grand Seiko” and the applied GS logo, for those who did not recognize that this is more than a “normal” Seiko due to its case and finish. The blued second hand offers great contrast as well.
Normally I would say that 38mm Grand Seiko SBGV019G replica watch is a bit on the small side for me, but because of the case shape and crown guard it suits me well. Somehow the watch felt bigger than my Chronoswiss in 38mm, but that watch has a much more classic style.
The stainless steel bracelet of Grand Seiko SBGV019G replica watch looks a bit like the current Speedmaster bracelet, but has a nicer finish to it and a hidden clasp. I am not a particular fan of the bracelet design and would prefer a leather strap, but that is very personal. The bracelet feels solid and the clasp works flawlessly.
In my opinion, this Grand Seiko replica watch will work just as well with a casual outfit as it will do with formal attire. You could say that it is a perfect all-rounder, like a Rolex Datejust or Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra. As always, the devil is in the details and that surely goes for the Grand Seiko SBGV019G. This Grand Seiko SBGV019G replica watch is not for everyone and I assume that a lot of people are still not aware of the great value that Grand Seiko has to offer within all their models.
This Seiko Giugiaro ‘Aliens Ripley’replica watch was in as good condition as one could hope, but it was still an over-30-year-old watch. The design is fantastic, and Seiko, along with Giugiaro, did an excellent job of fully encapsulating the futuristic theme of the era that was industrial, blocky, and verging on dystopian. It feels like an evolution in ergonomics and functionality meant for a stylized industrial environment versus anything else. The design of the Seiko Giugiaro ‘Aliens Ripley’replica watch was probably closely connected to the idea in the late 1970s and early 1980s with the then-popular science fiction that many people believed the future meant living on massive spacecrafts or space stations far away from earth, and that most people’s jobs would be in maintaining or running such engineering feats.
Weaver’s Ripley character lives in just such a fantasy science fiction world with the added military component, so this Seiko Giugiaro ‘Aliens Ripley’replica watch gets a macho as well as utilitarian side to its personality. I was actually pretty sure that it was only a matter of time before Seiko replica watch released a limited edition reissue because not only have they been doing just that, but recently, they debuted the first limited edition “Seiko X Giugiaro Design”replica watch collection honoring the Seiko “Bishop”watch.
The new Seiko X Giugiaro Spirit Smart “Ripley Reissue”replica watch lack the extra pusher and crown on the left of the case, as the crown is likely hidden under the lug structure. This gives the Seiko swiss replica watches(omega replica watches) cases a cleaner look, but it is hard not to want the watches to be the exact same as the original 1983 models that ended up in Aliens. The case for these new watches is coated steel in either the matte gray or the matte black and is water resistant to 100 meters.
This Seiko X Giugiaro Spirit Smart replica watch is 41.8mm tall and 42.2mm wide. It doesn’t look that square, does it? Thickness is 10.8mm, and the original was rather light as well. I love the bracelet design and other little design details such as the “happy face” section of the dial for the subsidiary dials and super cool design of the orange hands with the black line running through them. Colors are just spot-on “cool sports car” for the era – which made sense because Giugiaro was mostly a car designer.
From the first use of a titanium case for a diver’s swiss replica watches to the invention of the accordion-style strap and the two-layer case to the design of dial markers and hands of unparalleled legibility, Seiko had been involved in improving tool watches made to dive for 50 years. To celebrate this anniversary, Seiko is coming with two special replica watches. One of them is the Seiko Marinemaster 1000m.
Back in 1965, Seiko introduced their first professional dive replica watch, with a rotating bezel and a 150m water-resistance. From now on, a part of the collection was build with the only intention to seduce professional divers and to fulfill their needs with purposely build watches.
This new 2015 Marinemaster 1000m Emperor Tuna replica watch is a pure tribute to this 1975 Titanium 6159-022, as it comes with many of the attributes of this vintage edition. It is hard to believe it, but yes, the 2015 edition is kind of a re-issue that is both visually and technically close to the vintage replica one. Seiko is usually not into this kind of ‘marketing stuffs‘ but hardcore collectors and aficionados will certainly be pleased to see such a faithful replica dive watch .
The 48.2mm case of Marinemaster 1000m replica dive watch is based on the two-layers construction, but here with modern materials. The inner case is still made of titanium – for the reasons we exposed before – but with rose-gold color and black hard coating. The case is also still relying on the one-piece / monobloc case structure, meaning that there is no screwed caseback.
This outer shell of this Seiko dive replica watch is made both to protect the case in case of shocks and to prevent any unintentional rotation of the bezel. Talking about the bezel, besides being coated with rose gold, it comes with the usual replica dive watch design, meaning a unidirectional rotation capacity and a large, legible 60-minute scale to be used to calculate decompression times. The dial is also faithful to the original – and thus extremely practical and legible – as it comes with large luminous dots, batons and triangular indexes – to be easily legible and recognizable even in the dark – and large luminous hands. Both the hands and the indexes are coated with a warm creamy colour that matches the idea of a vintage re-issue and that perfectly mixes with the gilded bezel.
On the wrist, the Seiko Marinemaster 1000m Emperor replica watch is a large, very large watch (remember that the case measures 48.2mm x 17.4mm). However, due to the rubber strap and the absence of lugs (the strap is attached under the case), it is quite an easy watch one t
