I absolutely love this one! I never gave the Powermatic 80 a second look but it is beautiful. My first watch is a Tissot. Second hand from the Dutch version of Styleforum and I still wear it today (even though it is a bit too big for my current taste).
I think that this comment is driven by so many guys who play "one up manship" with watch makes for example, "oh you've only got a Longines, mines an Omega; that's not luxury, you're not off first base until you own a Rolex; oh Rolex are so everyday, you need a Patek Philipe; yes, but a Nautilus is so baseline, you are not anywhere with watches until you own a Patek with high complications costing at least £150,000. And so on ad nauseam. Omega are great and beyond most people's means to buy. FWIW I own 3 Longines, 2 Bremont and 1 IWC.Shit. Do you guys think Omega is a poor man's watch?
FWIW, the top looks better except for that ugly ass X. The tunas now have a laser etched crown with the X instead of the plain or signed S crown. It makes you rethink buying a $1500+ quartz watch.Not to derail too much, but I really don't understand Seiko's marketing approach. Their new Seiko Prospex SNR051 has an MSRP of $5,500. The entry level for the Prospex line is ~$400? Why would I want a $5,500 Seiko Prospex versus a Grand Seiko that is comparable in price?
