Sayonara SEIKO SUMO Diver.

Sayonara SEIKO SUMO Diver.

Seiko is to stop production of the SDC031 and SBDC033 wristwatches,
which carry the nickname of “Sumo Diver”.
Ever since these automatic divers watches debuted in the spring of 2007,
they have been a big hit.


Not only are they authentic automatic divers watches,
but they are also inexpensive,
which is why I think they were popular.


I wonder who gave them the SUMO nickname?
It makes sense now. It is a fitting nickname.


Maybe it’s because the case shape resembles a sumo wrestler.


I think that the case design also resembles the wrestling ring. 


I have a Blue Sumo SBDC003. I mainly wear it off.


It is rather heavy, which makes it feel like I am wearing a wristwatch,
and it is like a completely different watch when it is on. 
I love the curved case side.


I wear it a lot in the summer. I don’t dive myself,
but this watch looks great with casual clothes such as T-shirts. 


Come to think of it, the popular SARY055 and SARY057 have also been discontinued. 
I recommended this to those who wanted to dabble in a basic automatic.


I can’t wait to see what comes out next.

Naomi Osaka tennis player won the all-American open against Serina Williams.

She won the all-American open two weeks after contracting as a brand ambassador for Citizen wrist watches.

This is very fortunate for Citizen.

Now, Citizen’s Osaka Naomi model BZ4006-01E was sold out due to its popularity and will be unavailable until February of next year, even though it’s not a limited edition. 

Therefore Citizen Naomi Osaka model is not on my site :-(

The face of this Speedmaster is arranged incline so that you can see it perfectly when you drive a car.

This Casio wristwatch, the F-91 watch, is sold in Japan for 990 yen (9 USD). It is probably sold in every other country as well.

A cheap watch like this is referred to as “Che-Casi”, (short for Cheap Casio) in Japan.
It is popular among young people.

Not only is it affordable, it also comes with lots of features.
Also, it has a battery life of 7 years. That is amazing.

In addition, it even surprisingly has its own Wikipedia article.
It is not that big of a deal, but you can check out the details here.

The other day, I bought a magazine for 980 yen, and this watch came with it.
980 yen for the magazine and watch is the same price as this watch.
Not only that, but this watch is different from ones that can be bought in a store, and comes in a cool moss green color.

Speaking of which, do watches ever get given as a bonus with magazines outside of Japan?
