Tasty indeed. Any reason why the yellow is on the lower half?

I think the idea is to show when it is daytime in the GMT hand time zone as the yellow extends from 6 to 18

It's quartz, so it's a no at that price. 

Can't even be persuaded by +/- 5 seconds a year, backlash auto-adjust mechanism, instant date change at 00.00, twin pulse control system, high torque stepping motor ? :biggrin:

nice, since price has never been a deciding factor in buying a watch , otherwise I might just have a quartz Casio :laugh:, I like both, might as well be watch rich and cash poor :thumbsup:

Lovely looking watches, but would look like a childs watch on my 8" wrist. 45mm would be perfect for me.

Hi Roger.

I'm the same. Nice looking watch but 39mm would be lost on my wrist. I prefer watches over 42mm up to about 48mm. I prefer the silver version. At that price I would rather have all of the other Seiko's I like instead.

Regards Paul.:thumbsup:

I used to think this way as I also have an 8 inch wrist and other than a large Doxa I tend to wear 38mm to 42mm now after going through a phase wearing large watches. I decided it is all in the mind (except 36mm or less) :biggrin:

Also given this Seiko has quite a big dial I think it would look ok
