From the first look you can guess what it’s made chronograph this watch: Stainless steel case diameter 44mm with setting crown and two buttons (with screw lock) on the right side, unidirectional rotating bezel, screwed case back and hardened mineral glass. What can be said of the self-winding movement with solar power reserve of 6 months?
Wearing Seiko Solar Diver Chrono on you immediately notice two things: the weight of “important” and the thickness of the case that, on the one hand give an idea of the strength of the product, in contrast might be a bit ‘annoying to those not accustomed to certain dimensions and weights.
The black dial, looks very tidy, with 3 counters and date window at 4/5.
The counter at 3 o’clock from the 24-hour indication, that at 6 minute lap times and the last, at 9, marks continuous seconds. The second lap times are marked by the central seconds hand, red.
Together with the latter, there are, of course, the hands of hours and minutes treated, as in the case of indices button, with LumiBrite for a perfect reading in every condition. The bracelet of the Seiko Solar Diver Chrono is made of stainless steel, as well as being very sturdy and well made, has the ability to be extended by about one cm for wearing the watch over a wetsuit.
We have a choice of three colors: black rotating bezel combined with black, dial black / blue with black dial and finally red / blue with a blue background. Personally I prefer the matching black ring black, because I like the contrast with the chronograph second and minute chrono red, but in any case, looking at the other variants can not find particular defects.
