At the bottom of the article, I’ll show you some of my recommended places to buy this watch from

The Seiko SNA411 is a rather impressive looking watch on first sight. I wouldn’t blame you for being a little overwhelmed at the amount of information on display that’s for sure. Seiko have managed to pack in quite a lot of information on this dial and that will appeal to some people, and put others off it. Personally, I’m someone who prefers quieter dials but that’s just my preference design wise.

The watch is very well made, I’d expect nothing less from Seiko to be honest. It features a highly accurate Japanese chronograph quartz movement, typical of Seiko. The hands on the dial are quite prominent along with a good use of high quality lume to make the watch easier to read at night. This movement also has a rather useful alarm and stop watch function.

The glass is ever so slightly curved and made from Hardlex crystal which is Seiko’s own in-house glass similar to mineral crystal. This style of glass gives you some good protection from scratching and also protects from knocks or shocks.

The 200m water resistance is something most people like to see on a more serious sports style watch. The 200m rating makes this suitable for professional marine activity, serious surface water sports, and skin diving.

There’s also a rather impressive Bidirectional coin edged bezel with slide rule. Slide rules can look complicated but you can learn to use them quite easily. If you want to learn about this then it was summed up quite well here.

Looking at the size of the watch, I’d class this as a larger timepiece with its 42mm casing diameter and 13mm case depth. A lot of watches you see these days are around the 42mm mark as it’s become more and more popular.

My Final Thoughts On This Seiko SNA411 Review:

The Seiko SNA411 is a highly functional, impressive looking timepiece. It reminds me of a Breitling style watch but without cost. Overall I’d say it’s quite a nice watch if you like these busier dial designs.

After taking everything into account, such as design, build quality and price, this watch received a well deserved 8.5/10 from The Watch Blog.
