Introducing the Seiko Five SNK623K1. A half century has passed since Sportsmatic 5, the first “5,” was released in 1963. This new watch is a tribute to the first ever Sportsmatic 5. Curved glass, a calendar frame and other distinctive features express the spirit of 1963 and pay homage to the simple design of the very first creation. Respect, however, does not mean mere imitation. The dial design reflects the image of a compass, the ultimate symbol of man’s desire to understand and explore the globe, and it pays subtle tribute to the pioneering spirit of Seiko 5 Sports.
A uniquely designed, black dial features white Arabic numbers marking the hours on an inner circle and the minutes on an outer circle, while small, bar indexes encircle the dial on an outside minute track. Silver-tone hands with luminous fill make it easy to tell time day or night, and the slim second hand is detailed with a red accent. For added convenience, a day and date display are set at three o'clock. The polished stainless steel case extends to meet the black nylon strap, which wraps comfortably around the wrist and fastens with a traditional buckle. Water resistant to 30 feet (100 meters), this high-performance watch is perfect for everyday wear.
