Alba AAAA101

If you’re a Seiko fan, you might already be aware that they have other lines of watches under a different brand.  I discovered the Alba Riki Watanabe when I was looking for something very minimalist.  I have appreciation for Bauhaus style so I like this watch a lot.  At 36.8 mm, it is a bit on the smaller side.  The crystal used has an interesting “curved edge” which makes the watch bigger.  The case is actually not that big, but what makes it thick is the crystal.

I can’t decide if I like the white dial more than the black featured on the AAAA105.  I don’t think you can go wrong with either if you’re looking for a clean dress watch.
