This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Comes to £135.37 from Amazon US (without currency-friendly card, paying in GBP, including Import Fees and Delivery), so UK is slightly cheaper at £130.98. (Says £4.01 delivery for me, for some reason).
3182405.jpgFrom what I understand, even though the RECRAFT series is based on vintage styles, (most) don't have Lume. 7S26 21,600bph movement, doesn't manually wind or hack Hardlex, 21 Jewels.

For me, the lack of Lume is a big thumbs-down, but I love how it looks.

One US reviewer V'ger, says, "this watch is actually a copy of a Tissot PR518, which is a massively heavy watch from the late 1960s made of hardened, crystallized, and pretty much scratchproof steel. You can bet that a $200 Seiko is made of 300-series stainless that you will be polishing for the rest of your life. It may also be influenced by a rectangular Eterna-Sonic (f300 tuning fork) watch from the early 70s."3182405.jpg

I want the green Recraft...Comes in and out of stock.


The SNKM97? It’s a nice looking piece but I would prefer 100% brushed finish on strap and it prigs my aversion to green.

Retro. I like it. But after getting that Victorinox Inox delivered today I shouldn't even be on this site.

Now that's a nice watch
Only one word of warning is the strap links are not solid. They are not the cheaper folded type but if you look close the links are a folded version. Not the lines in Amazon images.

A Seiko I have to demonstrate better.

I'm kinda relieved Seiko didn't (why, though?!) add Lume to these, as it stops me yearning for one..

Edit: I knew I'd commented on this on HUKD somewhere..

I bought the silver with black face. Leather strap. £199 absolute steal.
I'm so pleased these watches do nothing for me. Saves having to explain yet another purchase!

It’s on Amazon dot com and as Vizta says it comes in and out of the global store as sellers do/do not ship internationally.

There's a few SNKM97s on ebay at the moment, though the New one is overpriced, and the others are Used.

@vizta the Amazon Global Store price changed to £127.47 not long after I posted this Deal (so, a good 18 hours ago), but the Checkout screenprint shows £127, as it was when I gathered all the information. Still a decent price, of course.

The price change is so small I didn't think it was worth commenting on.

It's okay, you didn't have to (delete your post), maybe some people will be bothered by 50p or so, but I was aware of it. Maybe I should've said anyway (was on mum's ancient laptop and it's not as comfortable or as fast as my home PC/desk setup).

I do so love this watch, just wish it had a hacking/winding movement and lume. Sometimes Seiko reissue updated Presage versions of popular models and (usually) bump up the price

It’s a beauty!
Is it thick/fat on the wrist, easy to bang on anything? Or nice day to day?

Slowly creeping up - £127.91 today - likely currency fluctuations.

Yeah both of them are around £150-odd now (I have mine in a wish list so I can idly watch the price go up and down - goes down to about £110 or so for the Blue sometimes). Expired.

A UK Seller had the Seiko SARB017 Alpinist for £289 earlier today (no box or papers, though) but I know they're not quite the same! Not sure if they'll restock. The Blue one is the one everyone's going gaga for (and selling for inflated prices).
The Green Recraft SNKP27 is £129.24 + £4.82 UK Delivery = £134.06 - I've not been watching it closely, but I'm assuming it's lower than it's been recently.37840912-g8C77.jpg
Brown version is lowest price today:
Items:£109.47
Postage & Packing:£3.74
Import Fees Deposit:£22.64
Total:£135.85
