  1. Definitely recommend the Reverso, had mine since 2013 and absolutely love it
  2. I think mine is probably my Seiko SLA025. Besides it being limited to 1500 pieces, the monobloc case and hi beat on a diver is relatively unusual.
  3. I have a fair few Seikos of ranging quality and 1 Grand Seiko and it is like a completely different brand (which it is). The finishing is the best of all my watches and that includes Rolex with a higher RRP. Here is mine: If you can definitely go and check them out
  4. Morning all, Back to this big old thing, have a good one
  5. Not that anybody asked or cares but further research has shown that the 6159-7000 was actually not released on tyre tread strap despite the image released by seiko showing it on one. It was just on the chocolate bar or waffle style so ignore everything I said above. Who knew
  6. Hi all, Developed a bit of liking for Doxa and have seen a number of here that look great. Having never owned or handled one, what are your thoughts on the build quality? I know @JoT posted about the new Doxa 300 Carbon chronometer recently. What do you think? Are Doxa worth the money over others at a similar price point? Thanks
  7. At £5k I'd love a Grand Seiko SBGA211. Nice position to be in, let us know what you for for
  8. Morning everyone, Seiko again today (I'm getting boring) with new Uncle Seiko tyre tread strap. Have a good day
  9. I think with the discount pointed out by Roy on this Thread about Seiko discount I would go for an SPB185. With the discount you're looking at £718ish for a watch that started out at £1060. I am of course bias because I have this watch and I absolutely love it Here is mine:
  10. Hi all, I have recently opted for a change on my SLA025 to an Uncle Seiko tyre tread strap which is actually more like the watch it was based on (the 6159-7001). I have zero to do with Uncle Seiko nor had I ever used them before but I saw the USA site recommended on a few forums from posts back in 2018 so I thought I'd give the UK one a go. Arrived within 2 days and I am massively impressed with the strap so is definitely something I would recommend in the future. Here it is before on the waffle strap: Here is it after on the tyre tread: And for the sake of thoroughness, here is the 6159-7001 from the 1960s (pic from Fratello watches): Cheers
  11. Morning all, Seiko yet again... Have a good one.
  12. Really like the SBDX017, would love one of them. Here is my SLA025, I find it very difficult to get a decent photograph of it!
  13. Morning all, SLA025 for me again today. HAGD.
  14. I think the size is fine but I think if you're not happy now, you may never be. I have spent time in the past trying to like watches I wasn't immediate struck by and it doesn't happen often. So if you're not 100%, it may be worth keeping it in new condition (if applicable) so you can return it and grab something else you really like!
  15. I'll add my Seiko as it is a limited edition of 1500. Another one that is tricky to take a good picture of (for me). Seiko SLA025
  16. I have that watch (SPB185) and think it's superb, at that price a great deal, thanks for sharing, @Roy
  17. SPB185 today, this too is tricky to photograph and looks way better in the flesh. Have a good day all.
