As avid Seiko fans, we all know how closely they monitor what their worldwide fan base has to say about the models produced at their factories and the latest trends in the watchmaking industry. Along with their visionary approach, that genuine interest in their fans’ feedback and opinion helps them remain trendsetters and always on top of the latest developments.
It’s no wonder then that Seiko knew beforehand that Arabic dial watch models and green dial watch models were to become a genuine hit in 2021. And, they adequately jumped the train by joining other renowned companies such as RX crown, Breitling, and Cartier, contributing to a collection of green face watch trending models.

And not only that, Seiko once again reinforced their trendsetting pioneering status by combining the visual appeal of the green dial watch and the Arabic numeral watch, creating a fantastic combo. Combos, to be more precise, two watches of striking beauty that feature renowned and beloved Seiko craftsmanship and attention to detail: Seiko 5 Sports SRPH49K1 and Seiko 5 Automatic Gold SRPF90K1.

On the other hand, several subtle differences may be decisive in choosing between one or the other.

Differences between Seiko 5 Sports SRPH49K1 and Seiko 5 Sports Gold SRPF90K1
First of all, there’s a difference in case size and color:
SRPH49K1 is 11.5mm thick and has 40mm in diameter, while SRPF90K1 is slightly larger, 13.4mm thick, with a diameter of 42.5mm.
SRPH49K1 has a silver colored case with a matching watch strap, SRPF90K1’s case and strap combination is of golden color.
Dials are different, too:
While SRPH49K1 has Arabic numerals on all hour marks, SRPF90K1 displays them only at 12, 6, and 9 position.
Finally, their bezels differ:
SRPH49K1 has a completely unmarked one, while SRPF90K1 features a marked 0-60 scale.

There’s no denying that a green dial and Arabic numerals create unique aesthetics. As it’s almost always the case, such particular combinations incite an increased fan interest. Is it because we all need more green in our lives, having spent all those days inside our homes due to the still ongoing pandemic, and thus feel the urge of reconnecting with nature in every way possible? Or, is it the feeling of mystery and thrill of the ancient times, with whom we often associate the Arabic numerals? If it even exists in the first place, the correct answer is genuinely irrelevant. The magical appeal of such combo is the end result in any case. Another great thing about these watches is that they are equally at home in business and casual settings. Of course, their suitability and application strongly depends on the chosen watch strap combination.

Luckily, neither of the models is a limited edition. Still, if you are intrigued by their appearance, it would be wise to get one for yourself while they’re still available.
