Turns out Seiko, in their infinite wisdom, have very slightly smaller versions of these "Speed Racer" models - SNK versus the SNKK variants I posted last night

(SNKK versus SNK = 38 mm vs 37 mm, and 20 mm band vs 18 mm and different cases).

The White "Speed Racer" dial watch is actually a few £ cheaper than its SNKK25 brother I previously posted - comes to £53 with the code FD98F.

The Black SNK375 ("J"/Japan made) still comes down to £56 with the code FD98Fcreationwatches.com/pro…tml

The Blue SNK371 (my favourite) is sold out on Creation, unfortunately creationwatches.com/pro…tml

Visual differences between the SNK and SNKK:

(From Redditor rawWwRrr):
SNK and SNKK. Very similar in every way except the case design. The SNK cases have a thinner bezel and the lugs are designed with a tapered outer edge giving the overall case a rounded look from lug to lug. The SNKK cases have the more traditional lug design setting the rest of the case off on its own, additional with slightly thicker bezel.
..both use the same 7S26 movement along with the same dial and hands. Basically it comes down to which case design appeals to you most.
(and the bracelet, of course)

As ever, re additional charges, your mileage may vary - some recommend Royal Mail/No Box, others Registered Air Mail/No Box. Advice seems confused at the moment. Wisest to assume Duty may be a possibility.

Lot of watch for the money! Automatic, day date, Cool jubilee bracelet, Funky dial design, like the hands and red second hand in particular, great brand, very flexible size 37 mm which will basically suit all wrists ... can’t go wrong for that price, particularly if you’re looking to enter the world of mechanical watches and don’t want to spend too much.

As always just note that if this is your first time getting mechanical watch don’t expect it to be as accurate as quartz (you have to spend big bucks to get real accuracy on a mechanical watch ... absolute accuracy assured if you buy a chronometer, which is basically a certified highly accurate mechanical watch ... You’re getting into Omega and Rolex territory here ). Expect +/-30s per day on this lovely watch ... but that’s part of the charm and you might strike it lucky on accuracy.

Just know this can be a gateway into a very addictive hobby leading you to understanding why people spend thousands on one watch

What's this company like they seem very cheap
I have ordered off this company a few years ago and can’t fault them.

My seiko skx009 came from Singapore (no customs tax) ordered on Monday night on my wrist by Thursday I still don’t know how they did it!

First and foremost, you need to understand that Creation Watches are based in Asia and seem headquartered in Singapore. Thus you need to consider the possibility of import duty, VAT and a handling fee on goods above £135 and VAT and a handling fee below £135.

If you opt for DHL free delivery then you are guaranteed to pay VAT, Duty if applicable and a DHL handling fee when receiving goods.

If you opt to pay £7 Extra to ship via Royal Mail minus the original box but with a flat packed box and all papers, based on experiences of my own, SIL and colleague, goods arrive with no additional fees. In addition, based on packaging, goods appear the have shipped from the UK. There is a huge amount about Creation Watches online and on this forum.

I like the look of that fella. For me the face flip-flops between really cool and then trendy kitsch. I like it either way!
Mines regularly about a minute out.
I've not had a watch with an 7S26 movement (yet) but you can adjust them yourself if you know what you're doing. The lack of hand-winding puts me off a bit, to be honest, but you can't grumble for such cheap prices.

Currently wearing my Xiaomi Youpin W001M Automatic (Rado Coupole Classic "homage") and it keeps excellent time - as did my (broken, I dropped it!) Guanqin GJ16106.

My infamous Seiko Alpinist SARB017 (6R15 movement) keeps pretty poor time in comparison to those two, and both of those Chinese purchases were around £80 combined. I should really get someone with better eyes than me to regulate the Alpinist.
