Though I’m slowly growing a popularity for leaning in the direction of software watches beneath 40mm, I do have a comfortable spot for chunky, cushioned fashion dive watches that present a bigger wrist presence. Particularly since within the cooler months, a sturdier, extra strong diver would look proper at house subsequent to a thick sweater cuff, blazing fire and a glass of whiskey. The SPB237 is available in at 42.7mm case width and spans a compact 46mm lug to lug, identical to its older siblings from final 12 months within the SPB151 and SPB153. Wearable proportions in my e book.
What I dig concerning the SPB237 and what separates it from the opposite Captain Willard SPB reinterpretations is how Seiko approached the intentional getting older of the bezel and dial. The bezel insert has acquired a grainy, textured really feel and the espresso toned bezel markers distinction properly towards the charcoal grey bezel insert. The vertical textures and the muted tones of the dial that play between a light-weight grey and mossy brown add one other layer of depth and dynamism to the SPB237. The usage of a light-handed fauxtina on the hour markers and palms are excellent for my style, and that little bit of crimson within the stoplight seconds hand places the cherry on prime for me.
