Seiko Baby Tuna

by Peter Chong on August 1, 2013

Seiko watches are always interesting. I have featured some from my personal collection which are Grand Seikos…which I believe are probably the best value for money in the high end watch market today. But today’s feature is on a rather more modest Seiko. A dive watch, nicknamed by fans The Baby Tuna.

Known officially as SRP453K1, the watch looks rather large, but at 42.5mm diameter, including the shroud, it is not really a huge watch by today’s standards.

The bezel, shroud and dial has a very beautiful blue hue…quite a beauty.

This watch is owned by my good friend Lionel who put it on an after market stainless steel mesh bracelet.

On the wrist…looks rather perfect.
