    I hear you. The scs013 was on my wish list for a long time. A close alternative is the Seiko SARB031. Although there are some noticeable differences, it has almost the same aesthetic. It also happens to be about $100 more....[​IMG]

    thx for the reply.

    i think at this point i'm just going to go watchless for about a year until i graduate, finish cpa, and get a full-time job, after which i'm going to buy a bmw and an iwc portguese watch...

    I'd probably get the Christopher Ward C3 Malvern Chronograph (£175)

    I'd probably get a Tissot PRC200.

    +1 I'm wearing mine as I write this.

    I've been considering that one..but it just looks off to me somehow. Hmm...maybe I'm still jonesing for an SCVS013 so hard that nothing can measure up for the time being.

    I almost like it, but agree with hob, somethings is off, its either the around the edge or just the width of the hour marks are too fat?

    yo... you're not getting a scvs013. they're not on the market. i've checked every online retailer. i even tried to get the demo model from the guy on ebay-- he's not selling it. scvs015, too.

    ^ I'm not into having a ton of dials and dates and I've never been into wearing watches or any jewelry for that matter. I just want something simple and decent looking that tells me the time and I think this along with the Laco I posted earlier fit the bill. I've already been mailing him to see about getting one.

    The same guy is also offering this:

    I like the look of this also ($140), but I'm probably going to go with the black version.

    I found him on Watchuseek.

    He sells out of Hong Kong. From what I've read he's legit and been doing this a while. Seiko military model SNKH63K.

    I'm contemplating getting the white instead now. They both look great and at the price, why not get both?[​IMG]
