Put the Seiko 5 200M Automatic Map Meter SKZ231K1 SKZ231K SKZ231 Mens Watch on your wrist for some time and you’ll find it hard to part from this big, thick, sturdy piece of an outstanding field-equipment. Provided you are not someone with issues about thickness.
The Seiko 5 200M Automatic Map Meter SKZ231K1 SKZ231K SKZ231 Mens Watch is at worst, is impressive. It is one of those watches that grow on you and develops into fondness before you even realise. It is a much upgraded and improved version of the Seiko Atlas and hence, gets more admiration from the folk who are out in the field at the slightest chance.
A bigger case, nicer details and a finer brushed finish is what the Seiko 5 200M Automatic Map Meter SKZ231K1 SKZ231K SKZ231 Mens Watch brings at first glance. A closer inspection reveals the two-layered dial of the Seiko 5 200M Automatic Map Meter SKZ231K1 SKZ231K SKZ231 Mens Watch and that’s what the Atlas didn’t have. Just these two points are enough to prompt you towards picking one up, but wait; there’s more to come.
The Seiko 5 200M Automatic Map Meter SKZ231K1 SKZ231K SKZ231 Mens Watch is unique because it is the polar opposite of the ‘Dive Watch’ concept. It has been designed exclusively for land use. However, if you still insist for using it while sailing, you are free to because the compass serves the navigational purposes on the waters too. Also, it is safe to be carried till 600 feet under water; however, its actual feature – the Map Meter - measures distances on the maps as you hop the terrains. That’s not going to help you amidst open waters but you can trust your life on it when amidst the vast, open stretches on land. Here, it just has no parallel!
The crowns of the Seiko Prospex Air Diver 200M Automatic Map Meter SKZ231K1 SKZ231K SKZ231 Mens Watch are guarded by plastic (ABS) guards; securely fastened with screws to the sides, Seiko shows their intelligence by not using metal, which reduces the weight of the watch big time. Alongside, ABS makes for extra shock protection and from the design perspective, adds a distinct character to the watch. It also helps to slash the price.
A plastic ring surrounds the case back, from which the crown guards extend. The single piece plastic construction brings more rigidity than what three separate pieces would; it also ensures that lasting will be better.
The knurled, screw-in crown has the 5 logo engraved on it and the bidirectional bezel is also knurled along its sides. The knurling aids in smooth operation. However, the bezel doesn’t click upon rotating.
The lume is just like Seiko Solar Scuba Diver is supposed to be; Lumibrite glows gleefully, as bright as a torch on the hands but a little subdued on the markers. However, the brightness from the hands compensates that nicely.
The 7S36 movement is an upgraded version of the 7S26, with two extra jewels thrown in and built in the Seiko facilities in Japan. That should take care of all the worries that you might have on its reliability factor. And that’s important, if you are the sort of person who picks directions instead of destinations when you are out on long hauls.
