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

Saw it on MoT a night or so ago - thanks to TimeX. Apparently it's a fixed bezel, 22mm lug width.

From the easternwatchblog (pictures from there, below)
It has the similar shape to the famous Seiko Pogue with the thick turtle case with a concave lug well and the tachymeter style bezel markings.
Apart from these similarities, the watch is so much different from the icon. Seiko’s designers heard the fans asking for a reissue of the Pogue and has somewhat come halfway to meet the appeal.

(For reference, here is the original Pogue 6139)3297289.jpg3297289-kfznz.jpg£119 with MANONTIME code3297289.jpgPostage options - you can now pay for Seiko watches with Paypal (Creation told me some time ago you couldn't).

Not sure if I like it or not but it's a good deal.
I like it but prefer the colour of the original.
Good price 🏻 just not sure the open heart suits the style of the 5. Heat from me!
You’ve not found the save the ocean blue faced samurai at a decent price Louise?! Think it’s dipped once below £300!
Nice price but I am not a fan of the open heart tbh I think it belongs on more of a dress style of watch

Erm, I got it for £243.19 but there were very few back in stock, only one other HUKDer reported back they got one too. Very have wiped it from their website.

Yeah, I don't like it either. The original design was nicer and had more functionality.
It's ok.....

Ok thanks! Is it even nicer looking in the flesh?!

I'm not wearing it today (otherwise I'd take a quick picture). I think it's lovely and (the Save The Ocean Samurai) is the only watch people have noticed (mind you it was a hot summer's day the last time I wore it, my watches are often hidden, and I wear them for my enjoyment).

I added pictures when I first received mine, here

Weird, but I like the orange.

Just for you my friend.. [Image]


Burn that teddy........
I just got a very bright orange strap watch (via Amazon Warehouse) today, for my brother's Xmas. Supposedly it mimics the original (Star Wars) Rebel uniform, or something. Hopefully it won't put him off, it doesn't look that bad in the Amazon pic.

David Dickinson makes me cringe..

Can't see the other colour variants of this Pogue-esque watch from Creation Watches.

I'm a Seiko fan but that's one helluva ugly watch.

There's retro and there's retro that should stay dead and never revived.
Take I off Friday and it will have stopped by Monday morning.

Not sure I understand that comment. The new Pogue-ish watch doesn't have a Day or Date complication.

Edit: Actually, reading it again, I assume you're talking about Automatic watches stopping after having them off the wrist for a few days. Well, that's how they work, most people will know this by now.

Seiko make some great watches like the SNXS range and the new Seiko 5 sports and not forgetting the classic Skx007 / Skx009 / Skx013

Personally not a fan of "open heart" though, it's like "torn jeans"
gone

Solar watches hold about a months charge . Unless you! religiously wear the same watch every day then "automatic" watches are a waste of time

You're entitled to your opinion - I have an Eco-Drive. Ultimately it's up to the customer, you can easily find out about Automatic watches (if you're new to them) and decide if they fit in with your lifestyle and preference.

Take it off Friday put it on a watch winder and it will still be going Monday morning.

I’d have to disagree, I’ve have G Shocks and Eco Drives that can hold a charge for up to six months with accurate time keeping.

Yep my point is that solar watches are practical and automatic watches arent
