    Yes, my thoughts too.

    I wish they were a tad thinner and the lugs a couple of mm shorter, though.

    But I think even that needs qualifying: certainly watch enthusiasts who don’t want to pay more than RRP are disadvantaged, but those who are prepared to do so are benefitted as they now have much...

    Agreed 100%. My point being that the 'collectors' who choose to hoard are no better nor worse than those who choose to flip.

    Although, judging by this forum, there's no shortage of ‘collectors’ whose idea of ownership is to proudly boast of having the watch (always a Rolex for some reason …) tucked away in a safe, ‘all...

    Well, you've got to hand it to Seiko, probably the most 'democratic' brand out there. But I can't help feel they've just devalued both the spring drive and Grand Seiko in one fell swoop.

    Agreed. When the price difference is so small the M5610 over the 5600 is a no-brainer.

    Good question. I don’t know to what extent Seiko attempt to regulate the watch beyond what’s needed to meet their stated accuracy. I imagine that the regulator is set to the ‘middle’ so that you...

    I like it. If it had a normal crown, rotating bezel, white dial, date and GMT hand and cost 1/12th the price I would be in for one.

    Yep. It's nice to know the regulator is there even if I can't ever imagine wanting or needing to use it. The fact that the 9F doesn't have the independently adjustable hour hand means that you...
  13. Grand Seiko Quartz: 10spy more accurate than 5spy!

    One for the mathematicians …

    As we all know, Grand Seiko will, for some of their limited edition quartz models, produce a ‘super’ HAQ version that is accurate to 5spy rather than the normal 10spy,...

    I’ve been looking at DJs and OPs recently too. Slightly left-field, but let me make the case for the GS SBGV205:

    1. even with the 30% discount going Grey, there’s an excellent chance you should...

    The bottom one looks like it would make a great summer watch on a yellow Crafter Blue (if they ever get round to supplying them again).

    Two good points often overlooked, albeit the revulsion at paying over RRP is understandable.

    Hi David,
    Good luck with the search. Imo, the black and white dial 39mm OPs have captured the stripped back essence of the best of Rolex better than any recent models I can think of. You mention...

    It's top heavy (height to surface area is too big) and sits badly on the wrist. Too small for a genuine diver, legibility is only average and the lume, by modern standards, very poor. Otherwise I...

    I have one and it is. However, the alarm is inexplicably weak and the pushers are a little too recessed. The humble F91-W outscores the m5610 on both fronts. If Casio fixed these issues then I...

    Rio is dodgy and you do need to be careful. I wear an F91-W when I'm in Brazil. In Rio, you'll see a lot of the locals choose not to even wear a watch when in the streets so as not to offer any...
