The master craftsmen at Seiko worked hard to get the Seiko 5 200m Automatic Map Meter SKZ229K1 Mens Watch together. This black and grey dial-ed Seiko 5 Watch is therefore; no-doubt a cutting-edge timepiece with full masculinity turned on. Its appeal is its analog design and a contrasting stainless steel to hold on with. Packed with style, it is not for the novice unless he aspires towards un-trodden pathways too, at least sometimes. For seasoned trekkers and hikers, this would be great!
Your love for big and thick watches is answered here, as clearly as to make it stand out on the wrist. Immediately it creates a very good impression to make you go for it the second time if your first one gets lost or gets stolen. It is an improved version of the Atlas, an earlier model. The Map Meter is bigger than the Atlas, much better polished and more finely brushed. The shine/matt combo outrun the simple, matted Atlas.
The Map Meter's two-layered dial is slightly non-conventional, bigger and better, bringing it a unique presence. You will appreciate it fully once you reach out for the serious outdoors. But hold on! It is not a dive watch, so you must not dip it so often or deep as you would with a proper dive watch. Do not perceive it as a Diver's. The Seiko 5 200m Automatic Map Meter is clearly a land and air watch, even with the screw-in crown. It saves humidity from setting in. The knurling on it allows for an excellent grip.
The most interesting part of the Seiko 5 200m Automatic Map Mens Watch is its compass bezel. It helps to find directions in the wilds and a map meter to find out how far are you from destination. In simple words: It measures distances on maps. How you do it is clearly instructed in the manuals; we won't discuss that here. But it rotates smoothly in both directions and unlike the dive-watch bezels; it does not ratchet or click.
The crown guards of the Map Meter are hard, dense plastic, screw-driven to both the sides of the case. It reduces the weight up to a great deal but doesn't take tolls on its integrity. It offers extra shock protection and – purely from a design standpoint – adds some character to it. And oh, it also brings down the cost! A plastic ring goes around the case, ensuring more protection. Actually, the guards and the ring are a single unit and not three separate pieces.
There's no doubt that at 55 mm diameter (with crown), the Seiko 5 Mens Automatic Map Meter Mens Watch is also one of the biggest watches around!
