What point out of interest? Seems Philip has deleted all his comments.

daniellndn

Philip - 100% agree with you and your points

MPD1

Are you for real? This is YOUR quote, not mine!! “No watchmaker or reputable site such as hodinkee.com use that term as it’s incorrect.” YOU suggested it was a reputable source, I hadn’t even mentioned Hodinkee before that! Yikes (confused)

MPD1

Can you try to constrain yourself to one response at a time? Just take your time and put it all down at once, cheers. You literally named ONE website as reputable, here’s your quote: “No watchmaker or reputable site such as hodinkee.com use that term.” I’ve then quoted you 7 links from the very first page of search results in which hodinkee.com use that term, the specific website YOU quoted as a reputable source. I don’t care if Patek doesn’t use that term in marketing materials. I never said everyone needs to use it, I just said it’s a well known term. It is, the point has been evidenced multiple times now. You’re demonstratively wrong and at this point it’s embarrassing. I don’t understand the mindset of people who would rather argue than learn something new.

MPD1

Ah at last something we can agree on! Hodinkee is a reputable site, I also enjoy their articles. Interestingly when I did a Google search for "Hodinkee internal bezel" I found these 7 articles referencing internal rotating bezels on the very first page of results; https://www.hodinkee.com/articles/the-bulova-a-15-pilot-watch-hands-on https://www.hodinkee.com/articles/bamford-london-gmt-hands-on https://www.hodinkee.com/articles/rado-hyperchrome-tradition-captain-cook-mk-ii-hands-on https://www.hodinkee.com/articles/the-bremont-argonaut-hands-on https://www.hodinkee.com/articles/farer-aqua-compressor-automatic-introducing https://www.hodinkee.com/articles/bremont-mbii-refreshed-for-2020-hands-on https://www.hodinkee.com/articles/oris-chronoris-date-hands-on Perhaps we should leave it there.

A sports watch more practical than a Dress watch who would have thought?

cret16

We have a family owned jeweller in the town that sells everything from Patek's to Seiko. Many years ago I was in the market for a Patek Nautilus. His advice was to buy a cheaper diving/swimming type watch. His logic was that if anything went wrong with the more expensive diving watch, it wold be cheaper to fix.....as from his advice seals and crowns can deteriorate if not serviced on a regular basis. This was borne out when my Calatrava fell off my wrist and dented the case. Rohne Products (Patek's UK service agent) wanted £2000 to repair the case. I bought a Samurai Limited Edition version of this watch in Florida for $215 (on sale). The time keeping is within the parameters for such a watch, its very well made for the money and overall it offers great value for money. My point is that at this price point, its not a lot of money in the real world of watches and for me I can happily swim in it, without a worry about damaging it. Mine came with a 3 year guarantee and I know from previous experience Seiko do stand behind the guarantee. For the money its hard to beat.

MCYounes

I was only teasing. There is definitely some style cues that both have in common. Yes Seiko make some really robust watches for scuba diving and they also make some great luxury watches under the Grand Seiko Moniker.

cantonbean

Or an MR2 like a Ferrari... Seiko actually always made good dive watches from my understanding. It looks very similar is all I was saying... imitation is the highest form of flattery and all that...

suhayb1009

I think you should look at what it takes to make an automatic watch. Genuinely, if you educate yourself you'll see Seiko don't just make entry watches, they make very luxurious watches such as the Grand Seiko and the even lesser known Credor. Do some homework and perhaps you might actually enjoy an automatic watch.

Thanks for all the info...I take it you’re happy with yours then?

Roderz

I was looking for one of these for about 3 months!! I do like a bit of retro, and it does look TDB imho ;-) I think £295 is overpriced tbh, I paid £172 in total for mine from a US seller on ebay - that included all import duties paid to ebay upfront (sellers asking price was $165 - I got $10 off - UK £ price was £126) - I might have paid the amazons £295 in the end - depends how much you want one. At the time tho Amazon . COM had them for around £190 - imported from US inc duties (they have not currently got the green but have brown on here @ £114) also Long Island Watch has them in now and again @ around $200 HTH Good luck on your search

hozhoz

Not wishing to hi-jack the thread, what are people’s opinions / experience with these recraft automatics? (currently 295 at Amazon)

voodooboard

It is that simple for me. My money goes elsewhere. We are heading towards a global depression. People stop buying non-essential items during a depression. Watchmakers will be badly hit. Seiko were overpriced the last few years, they will have no choice but to reverse that. You are seeing it already, but this is just the beginning. This level of Seiko - stamped clasp, mineral crystal, mediocre 4R35 movement - will be £200 or less by the end of the year. And next years model will have improved specifications.

The issue I’ve noticed from Hardlex, all of my Seikos, from the prospex to presage range. The glass can mark up quite easily, if you accidentally scratch against a surface. So I’m extra careful when wearing it. My watches with sapphire glass, I tend not to worry thinking it’ll scratch as that’s not a possibility. Glad to see Seiko offering sapphire glass on the higher end models now.

"That Samurai looks pretty good. I’ll bet the bezel alignment is perfect too." :S This might rumble on for a while...

Baldricky

I note no Mercedes/3 Star on hour hands or the garish Invicta logo on the butt of the second hand? If Invicta are going to stoop that low, why not go the whole hog and rip off the country specific Limited Edition Samurais and Turtles, such as the Thai Zimbe ones SRPA19K1, SRPD13K and SRPC43K1. Swoon.

louiselouise

Definitely very cheeky. Of course the strap is different but they're very, very similar. Not sure how the land lies with copies. In China they do what they like as there's no copyright law over there (afaik). I doubt it will have a Seiko diver's amazing lume. Edit: The Invicta Blue 31280 even has the distinctive "waffle" dial some Samurais have (actually, turns out all of these dials have this textured design, hard to see on my laptop from small jpegs)(Edit: Added better pictures now I'm home)

Baldricky

I can see the budget modders salivating as we speak! In the name of all that is holy have Invicta got no self respect at all. (confused)

coldpop

I must be very lucky or totally detached from reality, but I actually thought people wore Seiko because Rolex and Omega divers were too expensive for them. The fact there’s even a cheaper version is unbelievable, but I suppose every budget should be covered. However, this is too similar to a Samurai, so Seiko should have them in court! (y)

For now you will always have to change the time every six months (DST). Although Eurocrats voted to delete daylight savings recently.

This_is_a_Vacation

Satellite clocks are all 4 seconds out due to time dilation, I'm not making this up.

deleted2198168

If your radio controlled watch was 15 seconds out permanently (not that it can be, I know) would you even know? When people regularly pay 20 grand for a radio controlled watch then that'll be when society values accuracy over craftsmanship.

sane4sure

I apologise for the late reply but you didn't quote my comment so I did not get a notification that you had replied to it. You are right in some respects - I do prefer digital to vinyl and photos to paintings. I do however prefer live singing to recorded and freshly cooked food to processed. As to watches, I will concede that everyone is different and I certainly respect your right to prefer automatic to quartz. For my part, when I look at my watch I prefer it to be displaying the actual time and not something close to it.

This_is_a_Vacation

The GPS setup is on 95% Solar Seiko's. Seiko's Solar setup is relatively new And as such isn't as reliable or refined as Citizen. I had one die within 10 months. I have an old Promaster that died at 15.. years. Yet I like this budget Tuna, especially in the Rodger Moore Bond colours (needs slinging on a NATO or French Inf strap though).

I love this watch and think it 's a great deal. Do you think John Lewis would price match?

In my experience it is brilliant on acrylic and you get results very quickly. On mineral it will take a long time (hours) and you have to use a lot of elbow grease - some take longer than other and I've never done a Seiko.

thethinwhiteduke

You're right. It is excellent on acrylic, as you say. A little patience is required though.

I looked it up on various forums a few weeks ago (example here) but it was suggested Polywatch only really works with acrylic.

That strap looks so wrong on a £500 watch to me lol. Interesting to know though. I'm guessing the glass on my Seiko titanium chrono I bought years ago must be hardlex as it has a fair few little scratches on it. It's a cheaper quartz watch, so to be expected I guess.

My last Seiko automatic diver kept horrendous time. Lovely looking watch though. Is the movement in this anywhere near accurate ?

Love my save the ocean V1. This really is a bargain. Hardlex has never been an issue for me, never scratched even after some pretty rough knock.

MikeyS

You just got a dud and probably should have returned it - I've had 5 or 6 seiko divers with the same movement as this one now and all have regularly performed at +/- 10 or less per day over the course of a month

taffyraptor

You can. Was looking at them earlier. Can't say I have too much of an issue with my hardlex though. Maybe sometime down the line once I've picked up a few scratches.

It's the Teal Bottle Cap SRPC65 Seiko 5 I was lusting after (though I'm on a bit of a watch ban)Did a thread about it a while ago. Sold out at Creation Watches now - bah. I've only ever bought one watch from Creation so far - it's a bit weird how things turned out. Firstly Creation told me Seiko watches don't have a Paypal payment option (?), whereas all their other brands seem to. And the SNK371 only showed a Free Registered Airmail option - no Royal Mail. Mine came without Duty, Mike_HUKD's had 50% Duty charges (also a Seiko 5/Free Registered Airmail). PS: I've also noticed, after ordering the STO Samurai from Very for the first time (they kinda mucked my payments up slightly, but that's another story, and it was resolved) that Very actually sells vintage luxury watches as well!

It is mighty convenient that both the blue and green models look like ripoffs of the Rolex Batman and Hulk models. Haha, clever move.

Beautiful watch and classic seiko design with one of the nicest faces in a long time, plus some of the money goes to charity, whats to hate about this.

Biker.Jeff

For many people the 4r movement is relatively accurate...... just not yours it seems. Try posting on watchuseek about the 4r movement and see how many agree with you, i would hazard a guess that most will get far better accuracy than your +20 seconds per day.

Bendown

Not knocking anyones views and no you cant compare 300 to 3000, my thoughts where as I said they could have put a better movement in or make a special edition with improved movement and there would have been an audience for this updated time piece, it is such a shame as the watch has everything going for it, but lets not forget a watch should be relatively accurate, I am sure you would get rid of one of your motor cycles if it was breaking down regulary or you where not happy with it, and would you not spend more on a better one?

Biker.Jeff

Well you cant compare a 300 quid Seiko to a 3 grand Tudor. I'm sure its a stunning watch and if you feel its worth that amount of money to you, then its money well spent for you. My watch collecting is on a far less expensive scale, but then i spend 10's of K's on motorcycles. We all have something we splurge money on.

Bendown

I wish I could say different, for me I love an automatic watch as I have grown up with mechanical watches, what I dont really want is a watch that is not accurate, its a bit like having an old type film camera that takes blurred images, or a valve amplifier that has distorted sound. The Tudor cost 3 grand but for that you get a a watch that has the benefits of quartz that has a mechanical movement. I would buy another Turtle in the hope that I could just drop on something that is more accurate. I wish I could say different, I certainly did not want to spend that much money on the Tudor, If i had better results from the Turtle I would have had a Sapphire fitted and kept it till the end of my life. Thats a cracking price, glad its out of stock really lol

Uses an NH35 and/or a Sellita SW-200 elabore depending on which one you choose The Sellita Swiss movement will need servicing every 5 years, whereas the Seiko NH35 movement should easily do 10 years before it needs service, maybe even longer if worn infrequently Just 101 minutes left on the deal if you want in, be quick!

JerzyBulovski

Kraken uses a Seiko movement, no?

crazylegs

Absolutely! Equivalent Seiko would probably be in the £500+ ballpark Kraken has sapphire crystal, all Titanium, ratcheted clasp, possibly even a meteorite dial as well now, Ross is looking at the numbers for that, I doubt any Seiko diver will get anywhere near the specs of the Kraken

Yetiboy

I'm not so sure, the same price Seiko won't have the sellita movement with sapphire and a high grade titanium case and bracelet so I think value has to go to the Kracken. Also the Seiko's of this value will drop quite a lot so resale would be, at worst, equal to Seiko. It's also nice backing a guy who's making these himself so I'm probably going to enjoy wearing it that bit more because I know the story behind it. It's not a big named, mass produced watch, it has a more personal touch.

waysan

I’ve been following this campaign for ages and it’s definitely up there. With a free rubber strap, I could be tempted now. That said, I’m pretty sure that a Seiko for the same price would give more value and/or pleasure over its life.
