Seiko 5 Sports Automatic Submariner Styled ‘Sea Urchin’ Mens Watch SNZF17K1 41mm
Styled after the Rolex Submariner, this Seiko 5 Sports Automatic Submariner Styled ‘Sea Urchin’ Mens Watch SNZF17K1 41mm gives a rugged twist to the legendary Seiko 5 family, as a divers watch style. The Rolex Submariner was known as the timepiece that unlocked the depths of the ocean. When it was originally launched in 1953, the Submariner was the first watch to have a water resistance rating of 100 metres, truely setting a benchmark for divers watches. The nickname for the SNZF17K1 comes from the fact that sea urchins live at shallow depths of ocean, relating to the start of a watch which could handle a higher resistancy.
In terms of the dial, the ever present Seiko 5 sports logo can be found just below the 12 o’clock index with a day and date window taking the place of the 3 o’clock index. A 7S36 calibre engine combined with an automatic 23 jewel movement powers the luminous hands around the dial. The indexes are also coated in LumiBrite, making for clear visibility at night time. A black bezel sits on a stainless steel case with hardlex crystal glass further reinforcing the dial. To equip this timepiece a deployment clasp is fastened to secure a silver stainless steel bracelet.
This timepiece has a water resistancy of 100 metres, meaning it can be used for swimming and snorkeling but should not be submerged to a considerable depth.

The Family: Seiko 5
The Seiko 5 family has set the standard in affordable, rugged and stylish watches since 1963. Designed to be simple but serious, the Seiko 5 is so-called due to its five key attributes: automatic winding, displaying the day and date in a single window, water resistance, a recessed crown at the 4 o’clock position and a durable metal bracelet. Released in order to meet the demands of the revolutionary baby-boomer generation, the Seiko 5 collection is just as popular to this day, proof that expert craftsmanship and elegant design will never go out of fashion.
