- Face and Dial: The Seiko Tressia Women’s Quartz Watch SUP187 has a simple rectangular face that has a black dial, silver hour and minute hands, and Seiko-Go Red signature heart logos marking 6 and 12 o’clock.
- Dial Display Window: The SUP187’s top glass is made of Seiko’s patented mineral crystal called “Hardlex”, a shatter-proof and scratch-resistant type of hybrid crystal.
- Bezel and Case: This watch has a fixed, silver-tone bezel decorated with 10 crystal studs on its left and right side. Its stainless steel case measures 16 mm in diameter, and 8 mm in thickness. The AHA Go Red dress logo is engraved on the case back.
- Movement: The SUP187 uses a Japan quartz movement which runs with solar power.
- Band: Its 6.5 inches long bracelet is made of stainless steel and black ceramic material, and it also is accentuated with crystals. It is 13 mm wide, and uses a fold-over clasp with a single push-button release.
- Water Resistance: This timepiece has a water resistance feature useful in depths of up to 30 meters or 100 feet.
- Beauty for A Cause: This is not a beauty pageant, and with heart disease, there are no winners. Since 2011, Seiko has pledged aid for the American Heart Association’s national campaign focusing on women and heart disease. Some of Seiko’s lovely dress watches, such as the SUP187, are made specifically for proceeds amounting to $15 per watch, to be donated to the AHA.
- A Dainty Stunner: The Seiko Tressia Women’s Quartz Watch SUP187 is the perfect day-to-night accessory. It resembles a beautiful black and silver bracelet that is adorned with crystals that add just a touch of bling when needed.
- Hardlex vs. Sapphire Crystal: Although the scratch-proof and durable qualities of sapphire crystal dial windows are unquestionable, sapphire tends to shatter more easily than mineral crystal. Seiko’s own hybrid crystal, Hardlex, is found to be more shatter-proof than sapphire, and is still scratch-resistant.
- Ceramic bracelets do have the tendency to break easily when accidentally dropped or banged on a hard surface.
- Although some people are okay with simple, clean dials that do not have indices, markers, or numbers, there are still a good number of people who would find it easier to tell what time it is if they are guided by illuminated markers and/or numbers, especially if the watch has a black dial.
By wearing the Seiko Tressia Women's Quartz Watch SUP187, you are showing your support to Go Red, the American Heart Association’s (AHA) movement which aims to further educate and minimize the effects of heart diseases on women. Just by looking at the watch itself, you would understand what “beauty for a cause” means.
