Dispatched Tracked and Insured world wide. Some info below there is a lot more out there about these watch this in going to a very sort after Seiko it is now but in then years time its going to very hard to get and you going to pay the thither. The Seiko "Spork" is also known as the SRP043, the SRP043K, the SRP043K1, and the SRP043K2. The other origin of the nickname is through a rearranging of the letters "SRP043K" to come up with Spork. The Seiko Spork was in production to the best of my knowledge from 2009 into 2011. Unless additional information is provided, I will say the Spork was made for 22 months - a very short run! One of, if not the most appealing aspect of the Spork, is the wonderfully easy to read dial. As I get older, my eyesight has begun to fail me.
The Seiko Spork dial is very easy to read - the absence of subdials, inner rotating rings, and dial text make focusing on the time a simpler task. Just take a look at the dial. The nice large Arabic numbers surrounded by the decent-sized minute track make reading the time very quick work. You just know this is good quality work!
In addition to being one of the easiest to read watches, the Seiko Spork is built very tough! The case measures a whopping 43 - 44 mm across and a comfortable 12 - 13 mm thick. As you can see, the back of the watch is recessed a bit, making for a more snug fit on the wrist and under the shirt sleeve cuff.
The clasp of the metal bracelet is a thing of pure comfort and security. The 20 mm drilled lugs make sure that whatever solid spring bars you have in place, your strap or bracelet or even band! Once properly fitted, the only way you will know the Spork is on your wrist is by its formidable mass of 6.9 ounces and the realisation that you keep checking the time only to look at that beautiful dial.
Let's take a look at that excellent clasp on the bracelet. All physical attributes aside, one of the best features of the Seiko Spork is the 4R15 movement with the wonderful 50 HOUR Power Reserve. Yes, you can take this watch off on Friday evening after work and pick it up Monday morning and it will be keeping perfect time if not, get it serviced!
I truly thought it was a fad watch that only a select few were prone to appreciate. I have nearly decided that this will be one of my "permanent" watches.
