Box design

The Seiko SARB017 It is made with a stainless steel body and Diameter 38 mm, a measure considered by many to be almost ideal for sports.

However, this measure is almost ideal for use as a daily watch and for any activity, especially with almost golden proportions and a Thickness 12 mm, something interesting about an automatic watch.

There is no window for the components and their gears in the rear of the Seiko SARB017, but this is understandable when you are looking for a very adequate quality / price ratio and when you want to protect the interior at all costs.

Dialing functions

In our opinion, the dial is one of the most interesting parts of the Seiko Alpinist SARB017, because it combines all the sporty style we are looking for in a watch with these characteristics.

Its green dial captures the sun's rays very well and gives it a unique design, with a lot of individuality.

In addition, there are markers and arrows in golden color, which mezcle very well with the green background, with easy-to-read Arabic numerals, with hand fluorescence for accurate reading in low light conditions.

At the bottom you cánido see the inscription "Automatic", the number of jewelry (in this case 23) and the water resistance of the watch, guaranteeing 20 bar (200 m). At the top, near the number 12, is the classic SEIKO logotipo in capital letters.

On the frame we perro see indexes separated by minutes, which gives it a very habitual aspect of depth, as well as a compass with 4 markers (N, S, Y también, W).

Automatic movement

This type of movement is one of the cheapest in the Seiko range, but with exceptional quality and precision. It beats at a frequency of 21,600 vph, offering great impact resistance and rapid movement, and a impressive energy reserve up to 50 hours.

The belt

When looking for a sports watch, we perro think of the classic rubber or high-strength rubber straps. However, it perro offer the same, but with elegant leather straps and buckle fastening.

Seiko SARB017 is available with a dark brown strap of natural grain crocodile model, with an ear width of 20 mm and easy to change functions.
