The little known Seiko 7S25 UFO

Mention the word 7S26 and immediately eceryon thinks about a seiko 5 and probrably some seiko divers automatic watches. When someone mentions a Seiko UFO, one is quick to imagine the Seiko 6139 Automatic Chronograph watches.

Well here come the weird looking Seiko SNW011 which is based on the 7S25 movement (also found on the Seiko "Samurai's". The 7S25 is actually just like the common 7S26 but with only a date window with no day.

True enough its weird design is either a "like it" or "hate it" affair but I think THIS watch truly deserves the nickname "UFO" and the other one should be "UFO Chrono".

I think this wacth is rather rare and I was quite close to grabbing it but was stopped when my friend said..."what an ugly watch!!"

Anyways here is my verdict on the watch :

Case : Stainless Steel, The case is huge measuring up to 44mm with a see through case back

Dial and hands : Dial is simple and white with date only only window...hands...ughhhh could be better. Lume is good too.

Braclet : Braclet is a nice butterfly clasp type with solid links and solid end links. NICE!!! :)

Big diameter with fat hands

UFO design...where is the landing pods and ramp?

Date only window

Solid end links....nice
Overall : The design is weird...but I guess its a more dress type than sporty watch. Anyways let the pictures decide. Like it or hate it its up to you.

It is chiefly because the case is mostly curved and replica watches sale refracts light instead of merely reflecting it, going all the way down to the brushed lugs and wrapping around the finely polished, gleaming bezel. The sides of the replica watches lugs too gleam; bringing a very subtle, two-tone scheme and imparting a classy touch. In short, it is just the fake rolex sale right balance between brushed and polished surfaces. The case-back might give rise to mixed feelings i.e. while an exhibition case-back reveals horological beauty to the rolex replica sale fullest with the up-close view of the movement inside, the case-back of the breitling replica sale is solid, with its unique logo and model specs engraved into it. Now, even that's quite a show! The rolex replica features a second crown (at 4 o'clock) to rotate the internal chapter ring bordering the dial.
