    Excellent price for a Seiko Automatic.

    Do they need battery change or are like eco-drive?

    •  

      shake it ! no batt i believe

    • +1 vote

      There is no form of battery. Automatics work on movement and generally have a power reserve around 36 hours.

      • +1 vote

        What happens if there is no movement for 36 hours? Does the time need to be reset?

        • +4 votes

          Yes. Some people use a winder box to avoid that.

        •  

          @PJC:

          Whats your opinion on these? Do you think it's better or worse for the lifespan of the watch? I've seen differing opinions.

          I've got 4 automatics now, I don't mind winding them, but I also wouldn't mind not winding them either. It'll be especially handy whenever I eventually get a nice moonphase.

        • +2 votes

          @EARLOBE: With 4 + automatics you should either enjoy the re-setting ritual or treat yourself to a winder box or two. As for lifespan, having an automatic serviced often costs over $150 which is irksome if half the price of the next watch. It may not need a service for 20 years, but the inevitable is coming with or without the convenience of winder boxes.

    •  

      The automatic doesn't need a battery, the quartz chronograph runs on battery.

    Argh.

    Want, but shouldn't, but want.

    i’m all watched for myself with all the invicta and citizen deals we’ve had ….next watch will be for my 11 year old ..200m WR not too big so he has a watch he can use in the pool and surf.

    but wow made in japan and
    auto very cheap for this …wonder why they price low ?

      Designed in Japan, made in China?

        Casual googling shows only “J” SKU is Made in Japan.

        • +7 votes

          More intense googling shows it's not as simple as that and the watch industry as a whole isn't very upfront about what is exactly made where.

          It's not the 80's anymore and just like Australia, labour costs have risen, so a lot of companies have had to move offshore to keep costs down. Do you really think a watch that costs this much is made in Japan?

          Regardless you shouldn't get hung up on the issue as Seiko make great watches for what you pay. Their offshore factories will have the same high standard that Seiko is known for.
          Just don't go out of your way to pay more for a J model instead of K, as many people in the watch community have said there is no difference. Others will say there is a difference.

        • +2 votes

          Just to back up WatchNerd, 'J' doesn't always insuate that the watch is Japanese made.

          Also, I think it's 'bro science' that people can definitively tell the differences between K and J versions of the same model (e.g. Seiko SKX007/9) apart from font colours and lines of writing.

          Just get the watch you like and the cheaper K version.

          @WatchNerd:

          .. watch industry as a whole isn't very upfront about what is exactly made where.

          Not sure who you mean by "watch industry".. Vendors are very upfront - if it has "Made in Japan", then it's made in Japan. The finer print is only for the pedantic enthusiast.

          The problem here is with this obnoxious re-seller - what SKU is "SRP739 SRP739J1 SRP739J"? This re-seller is obfuscating the fact that the priced watch is not SRP739J and isn't made in Japan.

          Whether the product is made in Japan or Mars is irrelevant as long is its advertised honestly.

        • +1 vote

          @WatchNerd: I hear what you are saying about not knowing where the watch is coming from and I totally agree, but it is my understanding that there are some finishing differences between the two models.

          Here is an example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AGA6lsSmX4U

          It may just be that different watches from the same factory but different batches have different qualities, but there is a notable difference between the J and K models in this videos (for better or worse).

          This is why I love video reviews on youtube.

          @AlexF: This comment you made is a simplistic view. "Vendors are very upfront - if it has "Made in Japan", then it's made in Japan. The finer print is only for the pedantic enthusiast."

          That's not true. For example, as defined by a Swiss watch: "a) its movement is Swiss, b) its movement is cased up in Switzerland and c) the manufacturer carries out the final inspection in Switzerland. A movement is Swiss if at least 50% of its value (excluding cost for assembly) has been realized in Switzerland and if it has been assembled and "inspected" by the manufacturer in Switzerland."

          It's easy to abuse.

          Many parts are manufactured in Asia - very cheaply. After shipment to Switzerland, a small amount of Swiss parts are added. However, the value of these parts are much higher and so is the labour.

          The German company Steinhart, makers of Swiss watches, use Swiss ETA, Sellita or Soprod movements, assemble their watches in Switzerland, but use parts from China. The movement and labour value easily costs more than the imported components. Also, I have seen the receipt from an Omega bracelet that was made in China.

          It's much like HSV manufacturing made in Australia cars…with crated engines made in the USA.

          I agree with what you are saying about the sellers though. They will often advertise Seiko SKX watches in mutliple variants (007, 009, bracelet, J model, K model) but also include a completely different model such as an SNZ 'sea urchin.' This effectively makes an SKX watch appear significantly cheaper in a search, since the price of the cheaper SNZ will show.

          …from a pedantic enthusiast. :)

          @ilikeit: For Swiss Made the percentage has been 60% this year.

        • +2 votes

          @PJC: I knew it had changed, but had pretty sketchy reception so played it safe. Can't see too much changing though, Asia is too damn cheap.

        • +2 votes

          @ilikeit: True, and all the Swiss Made bargains I find were made under the 50% rule. You have to take a long, long walk to find any new watch without any Chinese parts whatsoever. Even at $20,000 it may not be possible.

    Not many womens designs. I bought a watch for my mum but it didn't say Made in Japan. Lets hope it's 2-4 days delivery as stated. Thank you!

    Saved by low stock, that chronograph was a nice deal.

    I really really really tried but nope..

    Where does CreationWatches ship from? Looking at purchasing an SRP775 J version through them but worried that it wont arrive before the holiday season.

  • +5 votes

    Terrible company do not do business with them.

    Bought a skx007j early this year at approx 280 dollars which had dust underneath the glass as a factory fault, Seiko Australia said they are not an authorised dealer and I would not be covered warranty to have it removed. The customer service from creation wasd terrible, it was a week of back and forth emails to finally have an unsatisfying resolution. I would avoid creation as there is also plenty of bad reviews online.

    If the product has no faults you are good. If it is not you are on your own.

    • +1 vote

      I haven't dealt with Creation, but you were very unlucky to have a fault with Seiko. I have 4 or 5 automatics and have had digital and quartz watches from them all with impeccable quality.
      I see they do factory servicing out of Sydney and will replace damaged glass for $50, so perhaps consider paying to get the dust out by their service team, just so you don't have a bitter taste every time you look at the time!

      •  

        Just pay with PayPal and use their return policy thing (https://www.paypal.com/au/webapps/mpp/returns) and they'll cover return costs and get a refund if it happens.

        My old man was happy to take it.

        Ended up buying a srp77j (turtle) From sky watch's had them check it before sending. It isn't common to get misaligned dials on seikos.

        • +1 vote

          Seiko SKX007/9 and Turtles probably have the worst reputation for dial, chapter ring and bezel issues. Luckily they are easily corrected. Although consider that these are high volume watches, so you will definitely hear about more issues than more obscure model lines.

    • +1 vote

      My SRP775 Turtle had a a dust spec and two hairs on the chapter ring. When I placed my order I specifically wrote 'please check for dust and hairs on the dial.' Creations response was 'All watches are authentic.'

      Basically, don't buy grey market unless you are willing to take a gamble that you will get a perfect watch for less than Australian prices. For me the discount includes the price of a watch smith to service any errors. This is a well known perspective on watch forums and hence why I don't kick up a massive stink about it. If you want less risk, go to an AD and pay more.

      Seikos have quite poor quality control, especially misaligned chapter rings and bezels on dive watches.

      Having bought several watches on the grey market, the turtle is the only one with issues.

      •  

        I think it's just poor service from creation watches, the skx007j is Japan made instead of K (Malaysian version) you would think that paying a premium would warrant better care when skx007k go for like 180-190.

        Buying from sky watches I had no issue, no generic response and assured that it was checked. My sarb033 from seiya Japan has been running well and doesn't have widespread issues and is pretty popular in the watch community it's nick named baby grand seiko

          Yeah it's a nice watch. Everyone's going nuts over the new SARY models, but I love the 'automatic' and font on the SARBs over the text on the Presage.

        •  

          Oh damn they are nice, bug Seiko using a lower tier movement? The 4r36 instead of the 6r15 but charging the same price? What is the community saying about that

    Nice find Op. It should be noted that there are other classic Seiko 5 models available for around this price, including -

    Seiko SNZG13K1 US$110.71 - 5% = $105.17 shipped (~AU$139.50) Use code P5OZZIE
    Seiko SNZH55K1 US$129.11 - 5% = $122.65 shipped (~AU$162.50) Use code P5OZZIE

    Is it applicable to 'certain' watches/models only ? Tried using the code on 2 watches in my cart, HOLIDAYDEALS did not work and HOLIDAYS took off just 5%
