Imho, the Seiko's 6R15 movement is good as any ETAXXXX. With the money you save, you can get yourself some suede wingtips

Haha. Well I think I'm definitely going to get it. I've been thinking about it and looking at it and the hands really keep it from being too dressy, but I think it can still be dressed up, at least for any more formal things I would be attending.

I usually just wear dark 511s, my red wings, a button down, and my university coat. I just change out the button down with sweaters and various things, so I don't think it will look too formal, now that I think about it.

I can't wait till I save up enough to get it!

I have ordered the SCVS013 today, and looking forward to recieving it. But does anyone know what the strap size is on the spirit?? I wanna get a brown one, and I might aswell order it while I wait for the watch. Thinking about ordering from thewatchprince.com...anybody got some experience with them?

they're very overpriced in outside North America.

I personally prefer wearing Tag Heuer, but then again the Swiss movement inside also makes it much more expensive than Japanese watches.

I just bought an orange monster on bracelet for less than $150. Unbelievable value.

ive seen it listed at 19mm - forgot where. my straps (hirsch 19s) do seem a little NARROW for the lug so perhaps you can squeeze-fit 20s on it.

Well I decided to order from www.thestrapshop.co.uk, because of the cheaper shipping and because it's in EU, so I don't have to worry about vat. And that store only carries 20 mm, so that kinda settled it for me.
Can't wait to get the watch now

very nice I just bought a Seiko SKX007 from the b/s. I was looking for a cheap diver.
post #255 of 363
I just bought the SKX779 with the S726 automatic movement to replace my leaking beater diver watch. Ahhhh, I do like mechanical auto movements and this one is keeping excellent time.

I'm also going to rethink my next high end watch purchase after checking out the Grand Seiko Diver. I like everything about it.
