The Seiko 5 Sports series takes a leap forward with the introduction of the GMT variant.
H&S Jewellers are pleased to finally have in store, the much anticipated Seiko 5 GMT release!
Ever since it was created in 1968, the Seiko 5 Sports collection of mechanical watches has been synonymous with durability & reliability. When the collection was relaunched in 2019, a youthful dynamism was added. Today the collection takes another step forward with, for the first time, the introduction of a GMT calibre. Based on the tried and trusted platform of Calibre 4R, this new series of three designs offers the convenience of a GMT hand in a case that is just 0.1mm thicker than the existing one.
All three new models offer a dial with a different colour: black, blue or orange. The GMT hands are in bright red to stand out against the black and blue dial versions & black to be clearly seen against the orange dial. The GMT hand has a layer of Lumibrite to ensure visibility in low light conditions. In addition to the convenience of the GMT function, the watches also feature a rotating bezel that is in two colours to seperate night & day hours at a glance. The bezel's indicator ring is made from Seiko's Hardlex glass to deliver the high degree of durability for which Seiko 5 Sports Collection is renowned.
The design of the dial & case draws inspiration from one of Seiko's best loved sports watches, known as the Seiko SKX series. The five row bracelet ( Jubilee) is a new design, but inspired by the original SKX series in which the middle rows are polished to create a contrast with the solid feel of the rows that bind them.
