Watch story

I own a Tag Searacer, G Shock Steel, Seiko Samurai SRPB53 Divers, an Orient Sentry and Blue and grey version 4 Bambinos, a Tissel Pilots and a Seiko Sary 057. Bought and sold this level of watch for decades. I wear the G Shock to compliment my Leatherman Tread. I've had two Searacer's of the same model and like the look and weight of the timepiece, it's a nice sports watch, maybe too heavy for some. The Orients are my dress watches. I'm now thinking about upping my game. Hoping to learn more about Horology and acquire some automatic time pieces with a little history. .

From G-SHOCK come new G-STEEL model designs with "layer guard structure" for outstanding shock resistance. New "tough leather" combines resin with synthetic leather for a band that is water resistant, and has better wear resistance and tensile strength than leather materials of the past. Distinctive stitching adds an authentic leather look. The multi-dimensional face features large hour markers and hands that have an ivory texture. A combination of antique and modern, the subdued design of this watch recalls a vintage motorcycle or rider jacket. The GST-S120L comes in a choice of two models, one black and one rose gold. Black and mustard, and rose gold and black combinations create designs that are elegant and powerful. In addition to Tough Solar and a hand shift feature, these models feature Neon Illuminator for the face and a white backlight for the digital display provide easy reading even in the dark. •2 Year Casio Guarantee which is only available at authorised New Zealand Casio Stockists. •3 Months No Payments and Interest for Q Card holders •Case / bezel material: Resin / Stainless steel •Leather Strap •Shock Resistant •Neobrite •Mineral Glass •This watch is pressure rated at 200 metres or 20bar.

The first of the TAG Heuer Sailing watches was the Searacer series, a watch that TAG Heuer released as both a variant of the 2000-series and the S/el- Link Series. The first generation Searacer was based on the 2000 Series and available in two-tone Gold (Ref. CK1121) and the more appealing Stainless Steel (Ref. ) version pictured below. The distinctive feature of the Searacer is the Regatta function, with its inner-bezel numbered from 1-10. The Searacer features a black central sweeping seconds hand for the chronograph functions and two sub-dials. The left sub-dial is a 12-hour counter while the right sub-dial shows 1/10th second for the chronograph. It’s the central red hand that is the Regatta function. To engage the Regatta function, the top-right Chrono pusher is held down, switching the watch into Regatta mode. At this point the 12-hour sub-dial points downwards to indicate Regatta mode. The Red hand then counts down from 10 minutes and once it reached the 10 minute mark, the Yacht is assumed to have crossed the start line and so the standard chronograph function automatically engages and starts timing. This second generation Searacer was based on the S/el- Link case and again came in two versions- one branded S/el and a later series branded Link. Apart from this obvious difference, there are also small details changed between the two second-generation Searacer models, for example The S/el Searacer has an applied TAG Heuer logo in silver, while the Link has the logo printed on the dial.

A great dress watch that punches well above it's weight. At first I was hesitant about the red tip on the seconds hand, but have come to appreciate it both for its looks and functionality at making the seconds hand easier to pick up at a glance. I'm hugely impressed with the watch despite what its budget price might otherwise suggest.
