Along with yesterdays delivery of the SRP455, came a new style of Seiko that up until now, has yet to officially see the US market. The Seiko Superior Limited Edition SRP453 or “Baby Tuna” is now in stock at AZ Fine Time.
The SRP453 has a slightly larger case size as compared to the 455 at roughly 46mm. Part of the reason for this is its shrouded case design. The nickname “baby tuna” was acquired due to its similar case design to the infamous “tuna can”. This smaller variation has a composite blue shroud with an opening from 12:00-3:00 and 6:00-9:00 to allow easy grasp on its unidirectional bezel. The bezel on this piece is also blue, but has a metallic finish that look quite impressive in person.
The gradient blue sunburst dial works very well with the rest of the watch giving a nice variety of blue. The large hands on this piece are accented with yellow gold, as well as its 4:00 crown, adding to the color scheme of this years big anniversary. Seiko is celebrating their 100th year of watchmaking, and the new superior automatics are a great affordable addition to this years limited edition lineup.
Along with the SRP455, this model uses the 4R36 movement with self-winding, manual wind option, and hack feature. This movement has a rate of 21,600 bph, 24 jewels and has over a 41 hour power reserve. This is definitely an upgrade for Seiko Diver Automatic fans and has already proven to be an excellent value.
The Seiko Superior Limited Edition Automatic SRP453 is only $550 and can be ordered HERE. Of course, if you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 1-800-486-3996.
