The Serica 5303 was one of the releases last year that to this day, is still very much stuck in my head. Everytime I see a photo of the diver passing through on my social media feed, my digital scroll is immediately halted. It’s a visually striking watch. At the time, I didn’t know whether to concentrate on the peculiar dial layout, split bezel display or the solid articulating end links that transition into a tapered mesh bracelet. That said, it didn’t take long for me to adjust to the distinct aesthetic and to understand that the Serica 5303 is really its own thing.
Since its inception, we’ve recognized Serica for their monochrome colors and sterile dial design. From my experience with owning a Serica, they’re easy to wear and seamlessly blend into any uniform. Today, and for the first time in their young catalog, Serica has decided to add a bit of color into the mix with the release of the 5303-3; a diver adorned with a shade of blue that has been a year in the making.
