    I have the same watch (and I love it). I kept the OEM Nylon Strap on mine, but dig the nato as well.

    The watch can be found sometimes on overstock.

    The first watch is safe and versatile but boring. Watch 2.

    I doubt your credibility as a "snob" mainly because you sound like you're repeating whatever you've been reading in watch snob articles on askmen.

    Truth be told, they do show up from time to time on ebay, but 9 times out of 10, they're in horrible condition; severely scratched hesalite and a case and bezel that have been scuffed to hell. I did a restoration on one a few months ago, took me damn near three weeks.

    Anybody know what watch this is (exact model name, I see it says Seiko 23 Jewels) ?
    and how much it costs?

    In the market for a watch with a brown leather band with a white face. Looking at the Timex 1600 but I like this Seiko more

    Seiko Blue Spark. No longer made. I had one and sold it. Great looking watch, but I just didn't wear it that much.:confused:

    I'm kind of interested in finding something similar to the Jaeger lecoultre Taille Grande Reverso shape . Not really interesting the Armani ones easily found nor any other fashion branded ones. Something by a watch maker but pretty low cost (and elegant). Preferably with a dark brown strap, hands contrasting the face (dark against white or cream).
    Any suggestions?

    That is the beloved, and discontinued, Seiko "Blue Spark"
