I heard about these Chinese market resin case Seiko 5's earlier this year and I was intrigued.
This is smaller than the other "dive" style watches at 39mm with a lug to lug of 42mm and an 18mm lug width. It features a resin case, hardlex crystal, friction bezel, 4r36 movement, and silicone band.
The caseback is held on by 4 screws.
Lume is what you'd expect from a Seiko.
The dial and hands are definitely familiar.
I kind of wish the crown was grey.
So far it seems like a neat little watch. Definitely feels cheaper than other 5's but that's too be expected. It wears well on the wrist and I expect it'll be reliable. I'm not sure if it's a keeper, something to mod, or a catch and release.
