    Why would you shower with your watch?

    I wouldn't want to take it off. I wouldn't want to worry about getting it wet in the rain, or doing dishes, or anything else involving water.

    I don't really understand this. All of the seiko's I've lusted after in the past couple years have been discontinued at some point before I've had a chance to acquire them. I can't understand why seiko continues to do this especially with watches like the "Blue Spark" and the other "Spirit" watches which are very established as being popular with WIS types. Anyone know if there's rational behind this or whether Seiko intends to replace these models with something comparable?

    Caution re: Parnis. My father bought one where the glass cracked. Seller replaced it, but still a hassle. Mine just stopped working a few days ago. Seller offered to replace movement as this was a "recurring problem".

    I've also noticed this and not just with the Spirit line. Very annoying. Maybe the models just didn't sell well in the mainstream.

    I know there are many fake Seikos on Ebay and at thrift stores. Is there any good websites/articles that can help me identify them.

    i would not get a watch from ebay or a thrift store unless you are wanting a very rare piece that you cannot find otherwise. try timezone or watchuseek. there are PLENTY of seikos for sale.

    Really close to buying one right now. The price is fantastic. Anyone have any idea how's the quality of it? Shipping is only 6.40 USD to Singapore and they seem like a friendly bunch of people. They said they could provide free tracking.

    Thanks. :)
    It came with this watch. I think a Nato works best on this one and the braided strap looks better on the vintage Timex.
