Seiko SNN233 Chronograph Watch

Seiko Chronograph Men’s Watch SNN233 Review


 Seiko Men’s Watch SNN233 Review.

Hello, today I’m doing a Seiko SNN233 review. I do enjoy taking a look at Seiko watches, they’re often very affordable and offer great value for money. Today I’m taking a look at a chronograph edition which is the SNN233 although it is sometimes referred to as the SNN233P1 review. It’s a little pricier than some of the other Seiko watches I’ve featured but I still think it’s worth checking out.

View detailsMy Initial Thoughts On This Watch

I have to admit I really rather like the overall design of this timepiece from Seiko. The dial really appeals to me and I love this gun metal finish on the bracelet coupled with the black ion plating on the casing. The dial feels very easy to read, the numbers stand out quite well against that black background in my opinion.

The dial feels very easy to read, the numbers stand out quite well against that black background in my opinion. Also, the hands and numerals are coated in Seiko’s LumiBrite which is environmentally friendly and glows for hours, this makes it very easy to read at night.


Being a Seiko watch it’s Japanese made with a reliable and accurate Japanese Quartz chronograph movement on the inside. This is a Seiko caliber 7T94 quartz movement. There’s a chronograph display that gives you the stop watch function with the two sub dials displaying a 60 second and 60 minute timer.

Type of glass

As I was expecting to find in this price range, this watch from Seiko uses a Hardlex crystal glass. Hardlex glass is Seiko’s own in-house version of a toughened mineral glass, it’s highly resistant to knocks and scratching.


The watch is a fairly popular size with a casing diameter of 42mm. It’s classed as a large watch and these 42mm watches have been becoming more and more popular lately. As for thickness the case stands at 11mm which is a pretty standard sizing to be honest, it avoids being chunky which is nice.


There’s a small date display at the 6 o’clock position on the dial. In my opinion, I’d say it’s a little small but this may well not bother people. As it’s just a standard date display you’ll have to adjust it for the varying days in each month.

Watch strap and clasp

If got a decent picture of the strap below if you wanted to quickly check it out. It’s 22mm wide with a black ion plated finish to fit in with the casing design. The strap fastens with a nice fold over clasp with push button release.

Water Resistance:

This watch from Seiko has a substantial 100m water resistance rating. It’s also worth adding in here that it uses a screw down crown. A 100m rating, also known as 10 Bar makes this watch suitable for recreational surfing, swimming, snorkeling, sailing and water sports.

I’d say they’ve done a fairly nice job with this Seiko timepiece. I like the large design to think the gun metal finish looks great. I feel like the date display could have been made a bit clearer, but that’s my only real negative point. Overall I reckon it’s worth checking out, it comes with some handy features and is built to a high specification that offers some fair value for money.
