A year in the making

Thanks to my discovering this Seiko forum, and to you all, I was able to educate myself a little about the brand and choose 4 nice pieces I truly enjoy

Nice watches and a good and balanced collection. What is next, as the world of Seiko is deep?

Not sure at this point; I’m finding 34-36mm to be a sweet spot for dressier. Only wish the ladies GS offerings were a tad bigger w/ more complication(s) added. Also, am loving the baby Turtle & sarb033 given their versatility, along w/ wearability on my 6-1/2” wrist. Hanging out here will give me more ideas I’m sure. I love seeing your collection in WRUW posts! Regards...

Iíve been buying/trading watches since 1993. This is the only brand that Iíve held multiple pieces at once; SO versatile & w/deep history. The fact I can ďaffordĒ to appease my addiction w/them is an added bonus
Best...

Nice collection OP.

Refreshing to see a Seiko bunch that is not diver dominated.

Enjoy.

We’ve chatted before, I believe.

Love the features, size and color scheme (most feminine attributes) :)
Don’t have my dive certification...yet!

I have a chocolate brown color strap from WatchGecko that
Looks really nice. It’s the “ Italian handmade leather” strap on the site. I also use a black and gray leather strap from Colerab.

So 1William got me thinking seriously about potential new watches.
I did order the SARX055 to see & try it in person; am afraid it will be too large but I wanted to try it.

The dive watch I referred to above is sold out/discontinued. Money saved I guess. :)

In terms of GS, I found a model that intrigues me... It’s the STGR207 which has the Caliber 9S61. I stated earlier, I really like 34mm as a dress watch. I also found a Seiko boutique not far from me...
Not that a new purchase would happen any time soon but it has me thinking.

My sister is going to get my Macy’s Roman numeral watch since I learned she is in need of a casual dress watch.

^if you really like it, dont give up. Even if discontinued, might still be available from some sellers.

Been also thinking of a feminine diver. Can only come up with SKX013/015/017. But they might be big if 34mm is your sweet spot.

Not that much familiar with divers with gold accents. I know that there are turtles and tunas with gold. But i dont think theyre feminine.

Good luck with the hunt. Great that a boutique is nearby.

Thanks- you raise some good points! In a dive watch Iíd be ok up to 40-42mm; which what these lady solar divers were. I misspoke about it being a Botique - they have some GS offerings. Bummer :( On the bright side, Iíll finally get to see some GS in the flesh. Those Spring Drive ďseasons collectionsĒ look amazing! Ahhh- the addiction is real.
Cheers!

Found the SKX013 on Amazon (US site). Not sure where you’re located or if asking price is too high. Good luck - looking forward to that incoming post!! :) May have misunderstood if you were also looking for now. Cheers!

The prices on the SKX 013 sound out of control. I guess it is out of production like the SKX007. The prices for that watch is also high.
