Seiko SBDC027 "Sumo" 50th Anniversary ReviewA year ago I ordered some Seiko replica watches personally. In fact, I only did so having looked at one of many JDM (Japan Domestic Models) inside Seiko boutique in Amsterdam. Here i realized a couple of things: 1. There's more to Seiko than I figured, 2. I must learn every one of these nicknames and reference numbers. Shortly once i decided to pull the trigger over a Seiko Baby Tuna SRP231. A super cool looking black watch with automatic movement and rubber strap ball watch . When i received that watch, I used to be amazed how this watch could offer a lot for the extra bucks I paid (I think it was a lot less than $300 USD if memory serves me correctly).Shortly after, I chose to acquire the Seiko "Sumo" SBDC001, this is the standard type of the Seiko SBDC027(J) I've here. I ordered my SBDC001 from Japan, simply because it wasn't available in The Netherlands at that time. I have faith that has developed since Seiko properly introduced the Prospex collection here (in Europe) last year. Still not every JDM models are officially available here, but I've remarked that Seiko boutiques could possibly have a few of these replica watches handy (like the Seiko MM300, i reviewed here).Again, after finding the Seiko Sumo I'd been more than pleased to see that it could easily withstand a few of its Swiss (and more expensive) competition regarding finish. Without going further into detail, I added some more Seiko replica watches to my modest collection of replica watches and noticed I enjoy them thoroughly. From vintage Seiko to completely new models so i partially blame Michael Stockton for influencing me a lot.Now without further ado, let's have a closer consider the Seiko SBDC027 Sumo 50th Anniversary model. It will sound that it 50th anniversary involves this specific model, but that is not the case. Seiko celebrates the 50th anniversary of the professional diving replica watches, introduced in 1965 (go here for our review for the first professional Seiko divers watch). Besides this Seiko SBDC027, Seiko also introduced a 50th Anniversary exclusive edition (1,000 pieces only) of the universally praised Marinemaster 300, the SBDX012(J).Basically, the Seiko SBDC027 uses the same basics as being the SBDC001. The stainless-steel case features a 45mm diameter and it has a thickness of 13mm. Under no circumstances a tiny watch. Seiko only produced 2,000 bits of the 50th anniversary Sumo. The dpi is most likely barely enough to supply all Seiko [Sumo] fans by having an upgraded type of the beloved SBDC001. I believe upgraded, since this Seiko SBDC027 features a volume of improvements within the regular stainless Sumo model:a sapphire crystal instead of the Seiko Hardlex crystal;dia-shield coated case rolex replica ;Furthermore, additionally they changed the look a bit about this watch. It's difficult to mention why these are improvements, as beauty is in the eye with the beholder, but a variety of choices no less than wonderfully executed:new design hands (get rid of large sword-style hands);square-shaped markers as an alternative to large circles;less cluttered dial - you can forget "Scuba" printing;a glossy MM300-like bezel;a much more modest font inside the bezel;Another small change is the new case back. Her "Limited Edition" wording engraved plus the unique amount of the wrist watch (out of 2000). On top of that, it bears the Prospex logo just underneath the Tsunami medallion.Overall, the watch has the same characteristics because the Seiko SBDC001. They have Seiko caliber 6R15 inside that is a solid performer and - if serviced once in a while - could keep on ticking for many people decades. The single thing that Seiko did not do about this SBDC027 (or perhaps the SBDX012 even) is boosting the bracelet. I've touched this subject several times, so I won't keep repeating it, playing with my personal this watch needs a better designed bracelet. Aesthetics are fine, however the clasp is definitely lower than par featuring its Swiss competitors.Fortunately, how the black polyethurane strap that provide the Seiko MM300 SBDX001 can even fit this watch. Purchase these straps as spare part quite easily and so they feature a reasonable price tag (I do think I paid approx 鈧?5 Euro for mine). Below a graphic of the Seiko Marinemaster 300 and Sumo SBDC001 side-by-side with the exact same strap.The 20mm lug width will make it a breeze to add custom or 3rd party straps, there are plenty available. Just check our recurring Watch Strap Review section. The stainless steel bracelet is in fact my only nervous about the Seiko SBDC027. Whether I love this anniversary watch much better than the SBDC001 is hard to state, but it really does have two (big) improvements in my opinion. Although I am not terrified of scratches as being a watch can there be for being worn, the dia-shield coating at the least prevents the watch from getting unnecessary scratches. The brushed finish within the lugs and polished case band is extremely nicely done, especially considering a watch using this price (more later). The sapphire crystal in my opinion would be the biggest plus, although the Hardlex crystals in my Seiko replica watches usually do not show any warning signs of wear. So perhaps I will be being very picky here. replica rolex deep sea watches The shop price with the Seiko SBDC027 Sumo is a bit greater than around the SBDC001, 鈧?99 Euro including taxes. The conventional Sumo replica watches start around 鈧?50 Euro (officially). The way it is treatment and sapphire crystal compensate for the difference in price. As the Seiko SBDC0027 was already introduced before Baselworld and possesses been brought to various markets already, official channels probably run out nowadays. I might want to see Seiko installing sapphire crystals on future Sumo / Marinemaster models, because i think a watch inside 鈧?000 Euro (~ $1000 USD) category deserves to have one.More info are available about the special Seiko Prospex website. replica breitling gmt watches
