With spring finally in full bloom and summer just around the corner, it comes naturally that we’re all thinking about a fresh change of outlook. Apart from taking out light material clothing from out closets, the warm weather makeover also invites changes in the accessories that accompany our apparel.
If you plan on expanding your current collection with a watch that perfectly fits the warm part of the year, you’re at the right place to read about two great options. Seiko SSC757J1 and SSC807J1, two of the latest Seiko Prospex Sumo chronograph editions, are the new members of the Seiko Solar family who more than capable of meeting all your needs.
Let’s begin with a bit of background, followed by the technical specs and individual features of these two Seiko sumo chronograph watches.
All these marvels of wristwatch craftsmanship are the force behind both Sumo Chronograph watches we’re presenting today. And, you noticed well, the Sumo element isn’t a part of the bullet list above. And, for a good reason.
Neither SSC757J1 nor SSC807J1 are, in fact, Sumos. They were immediately nicknamed as such by Seiko fans, and very often, sellers listed them as such, but they are not a part of the Sumo line.
They got their Sumo nickname for having the same style 12 o’clock hour marker all watches from the Sumo collection have. Still, apart from other differences, there’s a crucial one between the Sumo’s and our two featured watches. Sumo watches have automatic mechanisms, while SSC757J1 and SSC807J1 have solar ones.
Now that we’re at home with the background and inspiration behind the design of the SSC757J1 and SSC807J1 let’s deal with their common and individual features.
Timeless elegance emphasized by a Rollball stainless steel watch band
Seiko Sumo chronograph SSC757J1, was released in 2022. It comes with a black dial, and has immediatelly grabbed attention of Seiko fans worldwide.
The Sumo chronograph SSC807, which became available in March 2021, is one of three new pieces in the Prospex collection dedicated to the celebration of 140 years of Seiko watchmaking. It’s a limited edition watch, inspired by Seiko 1968 divers, with only 4000 pieces produced. As we said before, the SSC757J1 and SSC807J1 have identical technical and design features. However, there are four differences. The SSC807J1 features:
The 140th Anniversary Limited Edition Solar Chronograph SSC807 paired with a Hexad Stainless Steel watch band for additional elegance
Looking at any Seiko Sumo chronograph review, it’s safe to assume that these two watches are guaranteed to be in high demand, too. As we mentioned before, they are not really Sumos. Still, apart from other things they have in common, they share a premium feature of timeless elegance and masculine appearance. Combined with the fact that they’re easy and comfortable to wear, the future is bright for these Seiko chronograph, as well.
The two latest Seiko Solars universal wearability is further enhanced by the available selection of the replacement watch bands. Since that’s the field we specialize in, we always have something unique to offer in the replacement watch band department.
Both models require 20mm watch straps. Since that is a very popular size, there are ample possibilities to replace a watch band that originally came with either of the two models we discussed. Some of the available options are presented in our photos here. On the other hand, you can browse the entire selection and order it online.
