Seiko SRPD81 Black Street Watch NATO Strap (1) (1)

Within the Seiko 5 Sports Street subcollection, there are (as of this writing) three blackout-themed watches. In the following review, I’ll be taking an in-depth look at the blue-on-black version, the SRPD81.

While the SRPD81 is not the only black-coated watch within the 5 Sports line, it does have a differentiating characteristic – a “flat” black PVD finish. Other black-coated Seiko 5 Sports watches possess a glossy black luster, one much more reminiscent of a traditional PVD finish.

After spending some months with the SRPD81, I found the unique case finish not only very appealing but also very fitting for a Street-inspired watch. There are also other design aspects that make this watch not only easy to wear but also easy to pair (in many casual outfits). I explore these and more via the following categories:
