Rose-gold ion-plated cases have always been a really popular feature for watches, and this Seiko Men’s SNAE80 “Sportura” is definitely something worth mentioning. Being a major brand from Japan, Seiko has always been able to produce fine watches since 1881, and this watch could well be one of those fine watches.

In regards to the design of this watch, it is really something that looks more expensive than what it is. It has a sophisticated feel without being too complicated. The color combination of the dial, bezel, case and the strap really adds some definition to its beauty. Featuring a distinct textured black strap with fine white stitching coupled with a refined rose gold ion-plated case, this watch is definitely something unique. Besides that, it also has a fixed black ion-plated bezel with tachymeter.

On the inside, it features a black dial with gold-tone luminous hands and Arabic numeral hour markers, while minute markers appear around the outer rim. Not only that, it also has a date display between the 4 and 5 o’clock position. All these are well protected by its durable anti-glare sapphire crystal to resist any kind of scratching. Other features of the Seiko Men’s SNAE80 “Sportura” include an alarm feature, Japanese quartz movement, 100m water resistance, and chronograph with three sub-dials displaying 60 seconds, 60 minutes and 12 hours increments.


  • Round dress watch with textured black strap featuring rose gold-tone case and black dial with three subdials and luminous hands
  • Japanese-quartz movement with analog display
  • Protective hardlex crystal dial window
  • Features buckle closure
  • Water resistant to 330 feet (100 M): suitable for snorkeling, as well as swimming, but not diving


  • Stunning design and quality
  • Dial is easy to read
  • Good quality leather band that comes with white stitching.
  • Will probably suit with just about any outfit


  • Nothing much to fault about the watch

See What Other Owners Are Saying About This Watch On Amazon

“This was a gift for my husband who is an avid watch collector, he changes his watch depending on what he wears, where he’s
going, etc. He just loved this watch, the rose gold looks fabulous with the black. Very high quality, I got an excellent price
thru amazon as usual. The only store I found it in near me was Macy’s and they wanted over $600. for it.”

“e biggest compliment is the same as other reviews – people seem to love the rose gold color with the black. I also like the leather band because it is soft right from the get go – not quite sure that translates to higher quality because it feels a little “cheap” but I like the feel.”

“I have six Seiko watches this is the best looking of them all. I have a small wrist but I really like the large size. Not to heavy with the leather band. It looks better than the picture when you get it out of the box, it really stands out.
