I understand that sub-$200 Seikos (such as the 5 series) are essentially disposable watches one throws away once they stop functioning, but what about the medium-to-high priced Japanese domestic market Seiko mechanicals?

I much prefer Reptile shades.
Thank you for all the suggestions. In a similar vein, what do you guys do when one edge of the tie is folded incorrectly somehow, so that now the tie points on the sides are not even? Do you iron it down at a proper angle to match the other side?
