The day you’re able to afford your own Rolex is the day you’ve officially made it. Or perhaps it’s just the day your inheritance comes knocking. We don’t judge, you lucky s.o.b. Whatever the reason, attaining a Rolex isn’t within the immediate reach of most people out there, but what if we told you there was a way you could get the Rolex look without the $20,000 Rolex market price?
Say hello to the Seiko 5 Sports SRPB93, an automatic timepiece from the reliable Japanese watchmaker which closely mimics the design cues of the highly sought after Rolex Submariner 116610LV ‘Hulk’ edition.
Seiko’s version features a Japanese-made automatic movement in a 44mm stainless steel case paired to a matching steel band which is good for 100m of water resistance. The dial and bezel are both set in the signature green hue alongside hours, minutes, seconds and date functions. A Hardlex crystal also means the watch is sturdy enough to be worn daily without needing to baby it around.
For those after the look of the Rolex ‘Hulk’ without the Rolex price tag, this Seiko 5 is your answer.
