New seiko field watches -small!

Post by Seppia » Fri Mar 15, 2019 1:10 am

Coming out in April, size 35mm!
Should be quartz and priced around $150-180, available in a wide range of colors.

Really liking those, I may pick up a green one

What is old, is new again. I would have liked it better if they upped it to 37.

Wonder if this would be a good first watch for my son?

Same
It’s probably the first time I wish a watch was bigger instead of smaller lol

If you don't want to wait, the Timex Weekender is a good watch for the "developing watch enthusiast." Like this Seiko, it comes on a NATO style strap and Timex sells additional colors separately, so it's a good way to start feeding the strap hobby, too.

35mm is just a little too small for me. Would be better at 36-38 IMHO.

I think they'd like that they were wearing the same brand that I wear most often.

Looks a lot like the SEIKO SUS 4S15 “MILITARY” from the mid '90s.

Cool, but I’d rather have a real one even if a tad too small

Looks cool, I might snatch one for my kid.

Andrea, did you try the Hamilton Khaki Field Vintage?

That's cool. I didn't know there was a micro in Manchester, VT.

A tiny watch with a fat bezel is going to be weird in real life.

I got to try one of these on a few weeks ago. All I can say is "yawn"

Never seen the MWW Rattler in person, but I like how it looks in the photos. Seems like it's an improvement over the SUS it pays homage to (with the exception of the movement - the 4S15 is a higher-grade movement).

In person it looks unfinished and crude. Maybe that is how the original ones is in person. If so that is a no-go for me.

No I did not.
I had the khaki field 38mm, which has the same case size and shape.
Loved everything about it, except the lugs are too long and too straight.
It subtly ruins the watch

They certainly could be shorter... but I still like it. I tried a 35mm Seamaster and it was too small for me.
