Alastair Majury on Seiko SSA232K1 (4R39A movement)
I purchased a Seiko SSA232K1 last year (2017) at a sale price, making it a great entry level automatic watch. At the RRP it is I believe a little expensive for what it offers however. For more information on automatic watches please read this medium post.
- Mechanical/Automatic movement
- 55 hour power reserve
- Accuracy: +45 to -35 seconds per day
- Stainless steel gold tone
- Hardlex glass with anti-reflective coating — Note that Sapphire glass is considered to be better but honestly I haven’t noticed (so far) any downsides to having Hardless over Sapphire.
- Brown leather with golden buckle release
- Case diameter: 41 mm
- 50m water resistance
Seiko is a great watch maker and for more information on the movement please see this site. The particular movement this watch has is the “4R39” –24 jewels, no date, open heart, 24hr sub dial, handwinding, hacking. A brief summary is “The new movement seems complete in way that it never was when the 7S26 was the mainstay — I could live without hacking and handwinding without problem — but it is nice to know that it is there if required.”
