    Hi I have a question what do people think of the seiko premier moonphase watch? I wanted to see whether its better to buy from UK buyers ( whereI am) or from Japan - the seiya man doesn't sell it. He says not much demand in Japan. Know any other sellers in Japan?

    Very nice and such a classic. I don't know how or why I've gone so long without adding a Khaki to my collection.

    Seiko 5, a nice staple for me:

    I'm looking for a good Seiko auto with a leather strap for business suits. Any suggestions?

    I guess it comes down to what you want to spend, but my standard recommendation is the Seiko SARB017. It comes on a brown leather strap but can easily be switched out for a back one if you prefer.

    Also, your 5 looks pretty nice, if you really want to save some money, you could just buy a leather strap for that one and wear that on days when needed. But I understand that some folks don't like to wear divers with suits.

    Don't get me wrong i love the Alpinist, but i feel that brown straps aren't as versatile as black straps

    Heres a suggestion:

    What do you guys think of the Steinhart Ocean One Vintage? I already have a Skx007 and a Maratac Pilot, but I really love the vintage look of this one. Also considering the Ocean Vintage Military.

    I think they're a very nice looking watch and a great price for what you get with Steinhart.
