Yes, they sure are! The Seiko 5 regular line is an extraordinary value, but the Sports line definitely gives you more. The sports line uses a solid link bracelet, a sapphire crystal, and a "pseudo" upgraded movement (absolutely meaningless). That is truly a gorgeous watch; reminds me of the one in our J & A masthead photo-Congratulations... :thumbup1: I think the Seiko 5 line is the best value for an automatic watch out there... And those Seiko 5 Sports look to be heftier and better built than the regular line...
This is a beautiful watch.
I am always attracted to watches that have black dials, rotating bezels, and have all, or most of the numbers, interrupted only by complications.
Anyone know it's model number?
