One of the readers of my blog asked me about a particular Seiko watch. I like Seiko watches and was very interested to find out more about it as I could not find out a lot on the Internet about the watches. They are the Seiko SNN 209, 211, 213, 217 and 219 models. Thus far I have managed to find out that these watches are very new to the Seiko Neo Sports series. The only place I could find any information was from the Seiko Thailand website and from the Seiko shop in Taiwan. The Seiko Taiwan website has not been updated to show this model.
The basic specifications:
Functions: hours, minutes, seconds, date and chronograph
Movement: Seiko 7T94 calibre
Case: stainless steel, solid screw back
Crystal: Hardex crystal
Water resistant: 10 ATM
Taiwan has just launched the watch and the only models available are these; SNN209, SNN207, SNN215 and SNN211.
SNN209. I believe the SNN 207 is the white dial version of the SNN209.
The actual watch. I tried the watch and it is heavy. It is very big, I estimate the diameter to be about 42 mm. The lady at the shop allowed me to take a photograph of the watch. Excuse the poor quality of the photograph as it was taken by a camera phone.
SNN211. I tried this watch as well. It is much lighter, maybe due to the savings in having a leather strap. However I did not like the fact that the buttons were not the same colour as the case. I don't have a photograph of this watch as the lady did not allow me to photograph this watch.
SNN217: DLC or PVD case? Not available in Taiwan. I believe the SNN215 is the stainless steel version of the SNN217 (with black dial).
I was told that these watches retails from MYR756, but I am not sure if it is with the metal bracelet or cloth strap. They are retailing at NTD 8900 (with metal bracelet). I will update this as soon as I can find more information.
