    It looks very nice. While not a watch I would have worn at 17, it's certainly not one I would mind wearing now. I'm sure you'll be quite happy with it. Don't let any potential haters get you down.

    Well, it's certainly not something I'll wear with my t shirt and jeans to classes sort of thing. But I'm finding more and more that I have occasions to be dressed up. That plus the fact that I'll soon be attending a college with a somewhat-formal-leaning business casual dress code and lots of suit & tie events (pre-law), I figure it'll be a good investment. So far, I'm in love.

    I really like this, how much would a similar watch cost?

    Any vintage rolex watches you guys can recommend?

    Just picked up a new watch.


    Seiko SARN003. Retrograde days, GMT 2nd time zone, power reserve, date. One of the more elusive Seikos, with a rather interesting and unusual in-house movement. The chances of running into anyone who even knows what this watch is are remote. Chances of running into someone else who owns one are about nil. (Nobody in the U.S. other than a die-hard Seiko collector like me would pay Omega $$ for a Seiko.)

    Although I own some Swiss watches, I really like Japanese watches a lot. This has been something of a "grail" watch for me. I've kept waiting to find one used, but they are so scarce, that they pretty much never come up for sale. I finally bit the bullet and bought one new. My new favorite in my Japanese collection.

    There are quite a few actually.


    It really depends on which model, which vintage (year), and what interests you the most.

    A vintage Rolex can either cost you a bit less than a newer model or many dollars more.

    I really think you first should do some research for yourself first to determine where your interest lies and how much money you wish to spend.

    Also vintage buying is unlike buying a newer model in so many ways.

    You can't just walk into a store and get one.

    Make sure you buy the seller..


    Depending on what your looking for it could take a couple of months or a couple of years to find one.

    However if your really interested in getting one, no matter how long the wait it will be worth the hunt.
