    My SRPA81J1 & SUN019 canoodling:



    I'm tempted to dim the lights & put on some Barry White in the hopes of some offspring.

    That is how Seiko make limited editions, right?

    New arrival for me. I bought it with the intention of swapping the bezel for a 007 one but now that I've got it I really like it as is.

    Nice but they do look good with the 007 bezel too.

    First attempt at a proper shot of my Sarb. So much easier off the wrist.

    I've found imgur.com to be a reliable (and free!) picture hosting site [lots of others of course]. Once one has registered, it is easy to upload photos and then, to post here, click on the desired photo (within your imgur folder), copy the BBcode and paste that within a post here - et voila!

    That sounds great, thanks for the tip!

    Great watches and don't be put of by the diminutive dimensions. Have had mine on a Seiko rubber but prefer the bracelet. Just want the orange and pepsi versions now if anyone has them.



    Wearing the "Quartz Bell-Matic" from 1980 today.



    Cheers

    Mine does usually live on a bracelet, I just fancied a change. Really enjoying the NATO’s, will try a perlon for work tomorrow

    Got this back from the Seiko U.K. Service Centre today.



    Spoke to a very nice lady the other week, do you still service the 4S15-6000 from the mid 90s. Let me check Sir, yes we do, send it down to us. Around 10 days later not a peep from them so I ring them again.

    The response, your watch was only made for the Japanese market so we have never been able to work on those as we don't have any parts. We have spoken to the service centre in Hong Kong and they can't help either. Would you like me to send the Watch back to Japan to see if they can help, it will cost £72 just to send it to them, but no guarantees they will be able to help.

    My response was two fold, firstly, were you actually going to bother telling me this and secondly can you just send it back. They did, second class signed for - the bas***ds.

    All I wanted was a basic movement service, nothing else. Just clean it, lubricate and ensure the timing is good.

    For reasons that I cannot work out, they adjusted the bracelet at the clasp. I couldn't get the Watch on and thought someone had pinched a link. All very strange.

    Anyway, not a fan of the Seiko Service Centre.

    That all sounds terrible, yet another "Service Centre" going for the Oxymoron of the Year award.

    Did they charge you anything for the privilege of their service? If so, I'd definitely be looking for a refund and an explanation of the bracelet mystery.

    I'd hazard a guess there's at least 1 or 2 forum members here that could & would do a better job for you.

    Luckily there was no charge, so that's one thing. I did speak to Duncan who can service the watch, but has an 18 week waiting list. I won't contact the other guy, I suspect that I am on his blacklist. I was tempted to e-mail his website using my own name to see if he spotted me

    Thank you. It was a set of three that ran for a little over two years in the mid to late 90s and was exclusively made for the Japanese market. I don't think Seiko would have put those lily type hands on a European watch, the later SARB range of Alpinists had the slimmer Cathederal hands.



    The Black dial has a spiders web effect running from the centre to each of the 5 min markers.



    The Green has been described as a Unicorn watch, whatever one of those is, probably one up on a grail watch. The Green very rarely appears for sale and is the hardest of the three to track down.

    They are a bit smaller than the later SARBs, which were 40mm. These are nearer 38mm, but are incredibly comfortable.

    I've been into Seiko for many years now and I don't believe they can be beaten on value for money. This model was actually the first watch I ever bought as a TZ member and, like all the others, was sold on to try other things.

    When I saw this one come up a couple of weeks ago I couldn't resist it, especially as it came with the bracelet and has had a sapphire installed to replace the hardlex.

    What you get with this model for the money is....

    - auto movement which is running at 3spd
    - 100m water resistance
    - day / date in black with white text which is a nice touch
    - clear case back
    - mine's the 'J' model
    - superb lume
    - great wearable size even on my puny 6.75 incher
    - Seiko double push button flip-lock bracelet

    ....and the watch looks brilliant on a whole range of nylon, nato and leather straps.

    This thread is all about celebrating all that's great about Seiko and I think this SNZG013J illustrates that perfectly.

    Price-wise you can get this model for £138 from Yorkshire Watches if you want a very reliable, UK seller. I paid considerably less than that on SC but nonetheless, great value at £138.

    I was thinking of getting my black Sumo modded but now it's picked up a few marks and scrapes I'm really enjoying the freedom of not being careful.

    Unusual colour, very nice though.

    That caseback is a bit strange. Are they suggesting that a battery change is due in early 1988. Looks like the watch wasn't made to be kept and enjoyed for 30+ years.

    Daft isn't it. I've always thought it's crazy putting those battery change marks on the caseback.
