The Seiko’s SARG007 has all the attributes of a traditional field watch with a classic military look and the modern touches that you can expect from Seiko. Made of stainless steel, the SARG007 is 40mm in diameter and boasts an internal adjustable bezel compass, a tiny framed date window and a clear, concise dial with both 12 hour and 24 hour markings, the former in large bold print and the latter in a smaller print embedded under the first.
The SARG007 features the 23 jewel 6R15 automatic movement also used by Seiko in its SARB line, plus the famous Seiko “lume” for a nice bright glow in the dark. With 100-meter water resistance, the SARG007 is perfect for wearing outside for either work or play. The sleek design is covered on front and back with durable, scratch and impact resistant hardlex crystal glass, giving a nice display of the inner workings of the watch.
Ultimately this watch is the perfect gift for the watch connoisseur in your life. It has the features you would look for in a good field watch, namely durability, water resistance, a glow in the dark feature and a compass. The design is classic military with a few modern touches which can be seen in the tiny flashes of polish around the outer bezel and on the sides. Its aesthetics, especially the crispness of the layout, and the boldness of the numbers on the dial make it a truly beautiful watch.
Even if you are not a watch connoisseur and couldn’t tell a Seiko from a Casio, you would still find something to love about the SARG007. Just the look of it would tempt you. Its durability plus the glow in the dark feature makes it a great gift for a teenager. Its compass would appeal to the camper or hiker in you.
