    I need a casual watch for weekend days. Usually worn with jeans. Fairly small wrists so the 38mm size of both is good. What looks better? I'm assuming equal quality but feel free to say otherwise

    Thanks

    I'm not a fan of those two watches either. What's your price range? 500?

    I'd probably go to $650 for something I really liked. Has to be casual and not huge.

    thanks

    Seeing as this is just a popularity vote, of the two I like the Seiko. Then again, I've always liked that particular one. That Hamilton is absolutely hideous. Giant numbers for seconds, large cut away hands, two tones with little contrast, tiny bezel (looks misbalanced to me)...uggh. Personal tastes of course :)

    I can tolerate hamilton, but I have to agree with atoms! There are better hamiltons than this one!
