The orange on it is on the lighter side. However, it’ll still catch your attention when diving. Its hands are orange too, but they’re more yellowish. You’ll see a striking rotating bezel. It’s black with amber markers.
It comes with a rubber strap. The material is more waterproof than stainless steel. It’s ribbed, so it’s comfortable on your wrist. But it’s thick – when you wear it for long periods, you’ll sweat. Its face is made from stainless steel. It is very scratch-resistant.
You’re getting 660 feet (200 meters) of water-resistance. When diving, you’ll find its dial easy to read. This is as there is LumiBrite all over its markers and hands. When reading the time, you’ll be peeking through a Hardlex window. You’re already familiar with the glass.
Like the SRPC95K1, its crown is in the 4 o'clock position. This results in it slamming into your wrist less.
It is a large device. Its case stretches 1.69 inches (43 mm) across. A watch with a large case isn’t hard to wear, but it’ll look awkward on you.
There is a calendar on it. It reads the day as well as the date. Unfortunately, it is not magnified.
As it doesn’t come with a steel bracelet, it’s not surprising to see a tang buckle clasp on it. You hook a pin into a hole. It’s secure but not as reliable as a deployant one.
It is a Japanese automatic. It hosts the 7S26 mechanism. It’s a workhorse that you’ll see in our best dive watches under $100 article.
It comes with 21 jewels and a 40-hour power reserve. We mentioned what jewels were, so let’s talk about power reserves. They are how long your automatic piece can last while off your wrist. Remember that movement from your arm powers their gears.
What makes it special:
Thick rubber strap
