I’m positive the apparent has already been acknowledged, the Serica 5303 refresh comes with the respectable COSC certification, guaranteeing that every chronometer has a singular COSC engraved quantity on the motion, and has gone by means of a battery of checks whereas sustaining constant accuracy efficiency. However along with the COSC certification, Serica can be ensuring that the motion is as much as snuff by performing its personal in-house testing. From right here on out, any watch offered by Serica will even include their Grand Chronomètre credential, which assures the client that when the watch is absolutely assembled, it is going to then endure further accuracy, energy reserve and shock resistance testing.
To the attention, the outside of the Serica 5303 COSC diver stays fully the identical (effectively, nearly). As soon as once more, Serica’s calling card of design consistency is on full-display. The dial continues to make use of their peculiar hour marker association – Tremendous-Luminova C3 stuffed rectangular bars on the cardinal hours and lollipop markers that stretch in the direction of the middle of the dial. Like all of the fashions within the Serica catalog, a broad minute and hour handset dances across the dial (additionally full of Tremendous-Luminova C3). The one refined distinction is that the S617 word-marking is now not displayed and is changed by the Chronomètre tag. For individuals who are curious, the S617 title refers to a retired French submarine referred to as the e téméraire (the courageous one). Though the S617 moniker now not stays as a part of the 5303 title, the watch nonetheless stays as Serica’s distinct flagship diver, and continues to pay tribute to their classic army inspiration.
Considered one of my favourite options of any Serica piece is the flexibility to decide on the crown placement of your liking, whether or not that be at three o’clock, or for those who’re feeling zesty (otherwise you’re an precise lefty), elect to go together with a crown at 9 o’clock. The case traces are highlighted by various makes use of of finishes and hits all of the candy spots with reference to proportions – 39mm in width, 46.5mm in lug to lug and 12.2mm in thickness. The MVP of all the package deal nonetheless simply so occurs to be their metal mesh bracelet. The Serica 5303 COSC retains the 20mm strong end-link design that homes an extra articulating hyperlink, which then transitions right into a silky clean metal mesh bracelet that tapers to 16mm on the clasp.
