Nice watch, but an old model.


Yeah but its not like the 2020 model is going to change the face of watches. Until they add a fricking laser beam, a watch is a watch.

Looks nice. What on earth is hackable?


It means when you screw out the crown to set time, you can stop the second hand and set the time exactly.

Not sure why that's relevant when it comes to automatic watches? These things hold their value vey well too.

Fairly sure Save The Ocean was 2017/2018. Could be wrong, but I had this watch when it was released and it wasn’t long ago. Unless you’re referring to Samurai in general, but then all successful models in any brand are continued throughout the years. Seamasters, Datejusts, Aquaracers, Khaki Field, and so on.............
This is nicer than the Great White STO..

Correct, hence that Dawn Grey Samurai you have/had was limited to a run of 2017 off watch. Also, as far as I am aware, the STO (Blue Whale) on SS strap is currently still in production, I am guessing as the STO (Great White) seems to have proved to be less popular. As for old models, as you say, continued, discontinued and/or redesigned, good automatic watches go on for many decades and I would wager >95% of Automatic watches owned, collected and worn, are old models.

Agreed. Ended up selling the Dawn Grey. Wasn’t going to, but it was one of those offer I couldn’t refuse situations.

It's relevant as it's an old variant. Save the Ocean Series come in differing designs with each release.

This is the latest, I have the turtle.

Yea? I'm fully aware of that, but actually many prefer the older design, the watch itself is literally identical though.

You got a good deal selling a second hand old model? Well done Ha Ha. I am hoping that Seiko see fit to release versions of the “old” SRPC43K1 and STPD13 that we’re limited releases in Thailand. Dunno if you have seen them but the SRPC43 is omg.

So why are you saying the comment is not relevant, when it clearly is, then?
I'm only trying to make people aware that this is the older variant, and some may prefer the newer variant. It's called trying to be helpful.

You said older model, somehow implying that a newer version would be better in some way when it literally doesn't matter.

Anyway, whatever. Old model, new model, variant etc, none of it matters when it comes to automatic Seiko's.
Nice. Wish I didn't have so many divers already, I'd really like this one

I have a bit of a watch collection to say the least. I'm going to get some out of storage to sell in the new year. Maybe after selling 10 or 15 I'll consider 1 or 2 more

My frame of reference since the noughties has mostly been Austin Powers and Dr.Evil.
Favourite watch in my collection. I get asked about it a lot when wearing it out to. Its definitely one of them watches that when you see pics you think it looks good but when you see it in the flesh it looks amazing.
Debating which one I prefer between this and the Great White Shark...

Can't pick a favourite between them.

Personally, I have the STO Blue Whale and have tried on both the Samurai and Turtle Great White. For me the Great White (and Blue Lagoon for that matter) appears like a washed out version of the Blue Whale. The deep tones of the Whale just do it for me. Plus I don’t like the blunt end of the Great White second hand. I think it’s meant to be a fun but it looks like a thresher shark tail fin.

Oh I hadn’t noticed that before. I think I’d have to see them IRL to make a decision.

Absolutely ..... But until then.

Yea it looks good but if it all it can do is tell the time then I'm not interested any more. Functionality is everything and it's possible to have good looking more functional watches.
I wore my STO in the summer time (thanks to whoever posted the Very first order code deal originally - I kept an eye on the listing till it reappeared - URL is deleted now).

One of the few watches that gets noticed and complimented!

Nobody would argue that Steinhart offer plenty of bang for your buck if you are in the market for a Rolex “homage” (lookalike), but for many the sum of a Steinhart’s whole is less than its parts. This is on the basis that the likes of the Ocean One is just an extremely well made Submariner lookalike without its own style. That said, it’s possibly the best VFM lookalike out there.

You are correct, albeit the NH35A movement is the unbranded version of the 4R35 movement.

IF ... the only thing to consider when buying a watch was the movement, then I would understand your comment, but there is so, so much more to a watch than its movement.

Invicta sell watches not because the company has its own style or design language but because Invicta sell flat out unashamed Rolex Submariner lookalike watches for those on the tightest of budgets, albeit the watches represent very good VFM. The Seiko Samurai however has its own style, is ISO rated and leaves the 8926 very much wanting when it comes to the dial, lume, bezel, case finish, strap, end links, Etc.
