Bit busy for me but a decent looking watch for peanuts . . (y) heat
Grab yourself a watch link removal tool off Amazon or eBay. They're very easy to use, take minutes to do and will likely cost you less than the price of paying someone to do it. Having a large watch collection I do it all myself now, links, straps, buckles, batteries. It saves a fortune.
Sekonda do some really fine looking watches. If they were a high-end brand they would probably be the best timepieces in the world.
My ladies sekonda watch has lasted over five years.
Are the bracelet links held by a pin ? If so the removal tool is a couple of quid on eBay ... Altered loads with mine .
Read reviews on Amazon and some said can't remove links and others say cost them a tenner to do so, bit confused as I thought every watch can have links removed plus normally easy to do at home

Sorry only just seen this response. Thank you very much for checking.
Hi mate it just a push in
Will check and get back to you (y)
Mine arrived and looks nice. However could I ask another owner, should the crown screw back in or just push ? Mine doesn’t seem to want to screw back in after adjustment and I can’t remember if it was when I first opened the box.
Yet Sekonda quote 50M on most of their watches so limited/targetted mickey taking? Example: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/sekonda-stainless-steel-sports-watch-with-date-for-just-ps1958-with-code-at-h-samuel-3715019#comment-44612192 Given the general view is that most of us can only dive to 60M without 'special measures' (Google search) I wouldn't let it worry you too much. It'll be fine for the washing up, the pool at the gym and even today's heavy showers - the rest is just for show isn't it? XD Perhaps if you're into serious deep diving and your life depends on it you'll need to spend a few more thousand to be sure? In which case I suspect resealing and testing after a battery change will cost a multiple of the price of this watch. It looks good and it's 24 quid - until the end of tomorrow (4 May) anyway ;) .

Sekonda stainless steel sports watch with date for just £19.58 with code at H Samuel£19.58H Samuel Deals
For less than 20 quid! Helpful, thanks, though not surprising, given that a half decent bracelet is going to cost more than this whole watch.
Tbh received it but the bracelet is atrocious. My luck is that I had a 22mm leather strap. The rotating bezel is "clickity" and there is one point of dust inside the crystal. Other than that...looks like a good Pelagos alternative.
Sorry, don't know, don't have one. Have you tried searching the internet (including Sekonda's own site)?
Who needs a Pelagos when you can get your self one of these (y)

Sekonda Chronograph watch on stainless steel bracelet now just £27.99 with code at H Samuel£27.99£34.9920% off Free P&P FreeH Samuel Deals
It's plus £1.99 shipping for home delivery (unless you fill your basket to £40+) but my edit button isn't working to amend. So £29.98 delivered but if you purchase several watches to compare and the total is over £40 you can return the others or all free! Alternatively free C&C at your local store.
It's real. I don't think Sekonda does rubbish like that. Budget brand but respected watches.
Is that a working chrono or painted on? It's impressive that they can produce this and make a profit, even at full price.

Hot! Got this last time for £12.49. Confirmed 38mm (wears larger), applied silver indices, just enough lume on hands, day/date, nice sunburst blue dial and a surprisingly good quality strap. It's a keeper in my watchbox - sits alongside my bb36 and Sinn 356. (y)
Real leather? (embarrassed)

It's suppose to look like this millions pound watch
really nice looking watch at a pretty reasonable price hot
Yeah, I think value for money is bang on. Little things like solid end links, screw links, a diver's extension and screw down chrono pushers are just the icing on the cake. Not to mention a very well executed screw down crown and a lovely Seiko VK63 movement. If you end up picking one up, you won't be disappointed! 😁
Remember also that the Daytona has a Seiko movement where is the sekonda is just rubbish
Damn sounds like incredible value for money! Didn’t know it had ceramic bezal as well as sapphire glass! I think I have my payday treat sorted!

It could may well have been a return. Although the watch arrived in retail packaging, the packaging did not have any type of seal to it.
Might have been a return?
I got the watch today and have decided to change the strap to a suede leather one. As it stands, the watch looks better than expected for twenty odd quid. I did notice a very thin scratch near the 10 o'clock position, but I'm not too bothered, as it's not really noticeable from a 30cm+ distance. Not sure if that was down to poor quality control.
Me too - I got the black Duro from Amazon US and it's a fantastic deal for the price. 200m WR and superb build quality for £40 or so. Phenomenal value really.

Bought the young un a similat model not that long ago for £10 "deal on here" so guessing this isn't a great deal. TH baker have a selection of xpose watches fro £8.99 https://www.thbaker.co.uk/catalogsearch/result/?q=xpose&cat=
looks good, but my old fabric animal watchstraps could get rather whiffy itll not be any better on a kid!
According to reviews, this Sekonda 3882 has been even cheaper, circa £16. At this price I'd be afraid of a brass/alloy case or whatever (I have a cheapo Casio that's unwearable as I come out in a rash) but Q&As confirm the case is Stainless Steel. Apparently it has lume but not sure how good it is. Some say the strap is a tad small, there's some measurements on the Q&As here. Confirmed as a Miyota movement in a few places, eg here, though I'll edit if I find out.
I like it, inner bezel looks a little like the moveable bezel on the orient King diver, a watch I stupidly gave away years ago when I didn't know squat about anything (y)
