Did you know?
The SGG711 from Seiko is one of the few watches that use titanium instead of the more commonly stainless steel.
And as you may already know, the material is strong and durable.
This watch seeks to deliver durable service and looks quite sleek.
To learn more about it, just go through this Seiko SGG711 review.
It won’t waste your time!
- Titanium watch featuring round black dial with day/date window, luminous hands, and Arabic hour markers
- 37 mm titanium case with hardlex dial window
- Japanese quartz movement with analog display
Simple Easy-to-Read Black Dial
We give props to this watch for being among the easiest to read.
The credit goes to the large black dial, which clearly displays the hour indices in Arabic.
They are fairly large for easy visibility and come in a shiny silver tone. The face is simple and doesn’t have too many writings.
The other noticeable things are the Seiko name, below the 12 o’clock marker, Titanium, and 50M inscription just above the 6 o’clock point.
You also get a simple but clear date/ calendar window adjacent to the 3 o’clock poet. It is a rectangular shape, has a black background, and a silver border.
The lettering is white, while the days are blue.
Shatter-Response Hardlex Dial Window
The timepiece boasts of a Hardlex mineral crystal, which is exclusive to Seiko.
It was developed in-house and is said to be much tougher than the other mineral crystals. It is also better than the acyclic.
The scratch resistance seems good compared to other watches.
However, it still lags behind sapphire, which is much harder.
The Hardlex piece, however, beats sapphire when it comes to shatter resistance.
The clarity of the window is good and viewing time should not be a problem. This is made easier by the bold silver hands, large Arabic numerals, and the lume (Lumibrite) on the hands.
Strong but Lightweight Titanium Case
Looking at the watch, we can say that this is a medium-sized watch.
It has a case diameter of 37mm and a thickness of 9mm.
However, it’s way lighter in comparison to stainless steel watches in the same category.
This is due to the titanium construction. The material is lighter than stainless steel but stronger and more durable.
However, the watch can still get scratches and scuffs if it’s handled too roughly.
It also does require some regular maintenance to keep its classy and polished looks.
Titanium is also a crowd favorite due to its hygienic nature. It’s less likely to cause sensitivity or irritation to the skin.
Just like the case, the bezel as well as the bracelet, are also made for titanium.
Accurate 7N43 Japanese Quartz Movement
The unit runs via 7N43 Japanese quartz movement.
Developed by Seiko, it’s considered as one of the most reliable and accurate mechanisms in the market. The margin of error is low, -15/+25 seconds in a day, and it does not require any maintenance.
The built-in lithium battery will last for 2 even 3 years trouble-free.
The movement powers the silver-tone hands well.
This titanium watch is lightweight, comfortable to wear, and elegant.
It fits well on the wrist and doesn’t lose its appeal or color over time.
The construction looks solid and the Japanese quartz movement it relies on has proven effective. It, however, feels a little small for a man’s watch.
This is nonetheless is a watch that is worth every penny.
