Aesthetically speaking, I am not particularly fond of the Antea. Some people have hangups about Seiko as a company, for whatever reason, but if that's not stopping you, I don't see why you shouldn't just go for the two Seikos. I've only heard good things about both watches, and I was just thinking about how I wish I could get both. Damn my lack of money. :I

What is your impression of the watch? It seems silly now that I think about it, but lack of lume isn't really a dealbreaker for me, just a consideration. And why is it that you have owned two 556's?
To no one in particular: do you think that the Blue Spark is a little too much on the dressier side for someone who is not a working professional? I'd hate for my watch to look out of context. I don't dress like a slob, but I certainly don't dress in anything that could be called more than casual, seeing as how I'm currently a sophomore in college.
