Seiko has let their solar powered caliber V192 flourish this year in watches like the excellent SSC819 (and 813/815/817) which we reviewed right here (see more of our Seiko reviews right here), and the SSC6XXX references from 2017. Today, we get a new entry to the list with a trio of new Speedtimers, each featuring a distinctive colorway and a nifty red timing seconds hand. These are Speedtimers, after all, much like the group released late last year, but the newest models ramp up the sporty visual flair a touch further. Seiko still claims the 6139 as inspiration for these watches, however don’t expect to find much in the way of throwback flavor.
The newest Speedtimers encompass the reference range SSC911, 913, and 915. They range from the ever popular true panda colorway of the 911, to black and red in the 915, to the vibrant blue and red of the 913. Unlike the prior Speedtimers, these watches get a non-rotating bezel assembly with dual tone aluminum inserts. This design affords more of a classic look and feel opposed to the structured bezel piece found on the earlier examples. Likewise, the newest watches get a more traditional 41.4mm case design with a full end-link butting right up the case between the lugs.
