Shite, so many choices.
Gut instinct is telling me the SNKK65. What do you guys think?
Great looking watch. I considered it, too. I wanted something with a dial that was less metallic and more white, so went with what I went with. But if you want a stainless steel dial, I have a feeling this pic might back up your gut feel:
In truth, I was after the white. Many of the images I've found have had a white dial.
Perhaps that watch wasn't standard?

what watch make is this?
You have to look at a lot of pics to be sure just how white/silver the dials are. Middle-click the link in column A for the Google Images search. The SNKE49 is one I considered, but I ultimately had to go with the SNKH47 for it's creme dial and red seconds hand. Here it is with the strap I ended up settling on.
Probably gonna pick up a $120 seagull on ebay.
I really liked the one you posted. But the only SNXS75 I can find have gold in them, which I don't like. I did however find a SNXS79K that looks pretty much exactly like the one in your picture:
Any clue what the difference is? And can I change the band this one (Haven't had a watch since I was 10 years old and don't have a clue...).
I do believe that's mine. It will take a leather band. It would be 20mm in width. If you don't already have a watch bracelet tool you could use a narrow jewelry or eyeglass screwdriver to depress the spring bars and change out the bracelet but it can be fiddly. If there's a watch shop in your area you might just want to by a strap there and have them change it out for you.
So far mine gains around 13 seconds a day, but at 75 bucks who's complaining?
With the weakening Yen, the Seiko "Cocktail Time" SARB065 has gone below $500 delivered. Automatic with 40 mm diameter and a see-through back. Pretty tempting...
^ I completely forgot about this watch. Probably one of my favourite Seikos.
Love the Cocktail Time.
I took advantage of the Yen's decline recently and picked up the Seiko Alpinist (SARB017).
My poor photography skills do not do justice to the deep emerald green face on this.
I have always wanted a cocktail time and an alpinist. Gorgeous watches. Maybe it is about time...
