kinda a waste of a watch with cyclops and only 2mm smaller, probably still too big for those who said SRP was too big.
By the way the new SRPC23K1 sunray grey dial looks nice and BLNR looking one SRPC25K1

New smaller Seiko NAFT

Post by Jeep99dad » Mon Nov 27, 2017 11:52 am

It’s a different case style so not 100% comparable, 2mm can make a big difference here because the case tapers down more towards the lugs. It’ll cover a lot less real estate overall. It’s less squarish. Maybe shorter too.
Also the crown placement....

I would have hoped for 40-41mm, but 42mm NAFT style case should wear ok
Too bad for the cyclops, but I'm sure it can be taken off

Seiko strength is in the numbers.
They throw so much shit at the wall something sticks in the end.
After years of gigantic flying saucers, they finally made one smaller, I'll take it.
Hopefully this means there'll be another 838384849 models coming out based on this case.

I'll wait for the good one (hint: no effing cyclops to start)

Yep. And honestly, even with my small wrist and preference of 42mm or less watches, I love wearing my NAFT. The short lug to lug makes it work.

The crown and cyclops are obvious losers. I still hate the X on the dial too.

That grey does look good.
I really like my NAFT but it is a bit bigger than I would like. I don't really like the dial of this smaller offering though.

If the cyclops is glued to the top of the crystal, then it can be easily removed in about 30 seconds with just a lighter and a razor blade. Now, how do we remove that damn X from the dial?

Fun fact: the X on the dial secretly adds 5m of WR to the watch. Otherwise, the dial would have to read Diver's 195m

I don't like that dial, the blue dial on the NAFt is way better. I also don't like not having crown guards on a sport watch. The cyclops sucks, not because its a cyclops (I didn't mind the one on my ExpII), but I hate a round cyclops for a square date window.

Dimensions look weird, but could be the picture.

It's not horrible on it's own. However, it's a much less attractive watch than the NAFT (which I think looks great).

I’ll most likely try this one. I loved my old srp padi but thought it was just a bit too big.

If they had a plain black dial with black bezel I would try it even sooner.

I don’t mind the crown either. I like it with no guards.
