    amazing how the $99 watch has sapphire but the $299 one has mineral

    • +1 vote

      Hardlex crystal*, which is not as brittle as sapphire but better scratch resistant than mineral.

  • +1 vote

    Hmmm… that will scratch a lot.

    • +1 vote

      you don’t want brittle on divers watch …better scratched than broken and leaking water.

  • +1 vote

    The temptation is real!

  •  

    Sorry. Ignore my previous comment. I just had to compare my other prospex and swiss ones with sapphire glass. 0 scratches on my prospex, about two on my entry swiss watches.

    Do you only post watch deals because you're some kind of "watch expert" ?? Or just doing it for the upvotes? (before ya'll report/neg me, it's an inside joke, read the link.)

    • +2 votes

      Lol

    • -7 votes

      Probably both. Once he asked me why I stopped voting on his deals because i didn't upvote one of his posts.

      • +3 votes

        Probably both.

        Would you link to any comment from Member WatchNerd implying he is some kind of "watch expert" please?

        • -8 votes

          disagrees with anyone against him, and accuses them of "not knowing what they're talking about". even the username "watchnerd" you'd expect him to be watch expert.

            @Savas:

            … and accuses them of "not knowing what they're talking about".

            General life advice neither claims nor implies expertise.

            Expectations are not links. Usernames are not claims. When he was usernamed 28Degrees his shape was normal. And scotty is neither Scottish nor a thespian. No pressure, just take your time and find that link.

            @Savas: Your link doesn't quite support your cliam, it points to more of an observation than an accusation.

            Can't you find a thread you can add something to, rather than ill-founded negativity, vague aspersions and claims your proctologist found for you?

    Regretting not jumping on the pepsi samurais last time. Will bite if it gets to 299 again.

  • +5 votes

    Jesus Christ. I may as well preemptively sign the divorce papers now… Been lusting after that samurai for a while now

    • +7 votes

      It's a Seiko, it's a Prospex, it's automatic and it's beautiful. Sign the papers.

    •  

      I bought it last time it was on sale (albeit for more) and I don't regret my choice, I keep it for more special occasions and absolutely love it

  •  

    Heart nearly skipped a beat thinking it was the blue lagoon.

    How does the movement on this watch compare to an Orient Mako USA II?

    •  

      ewwww a 4R35 movement.

      •  

        What's wrong with the 4R35?

        • +1 vote

          Not knocking the Samurai for its aesthetics and build quality. It is definitely a beautiful watch. I just think on such a timeless design, Seiko should have given the Samurai a better movement.

    •  

      Oh could you imagine. Love Blue Lagoons

      •  

        I know right? If the price was right, I'd be willing to pay a premium for the 4R35 movement just to get the LBL Samurai and the Dawn Grey Turtle.

    • +1 vote

      not real happy with my mako accuracy.

  • +3 votes

    Amazing price for the blue samurai! I bought one for $329 a few months back, this is even better deal!

  •  

    I have been hanging out for the black sumurai.

    I should have got it last time it was on sale

  •  

    Still cannot believe Seiko moved the Monster to the midrange. They're going to get killed by Swiss made watches like Tissot and microbands.

    • +2 votes

      Yeah they've been a bit cheeky with the price increases. Like you said if they want to compete in that bracket they need to be more generous with the mid range movements + improve QC

      • +1 vote

        Agreed about the QC issues. There's been so many cases of misaligned bezels. Seiko does not give a rat's ass unless you own a Grand Seiko, Credor or Astron.

      Other than being a steel diver this looks nothing like a Rolex.

    •  

      buy invicta, great rolex homage and keeps good time.

      • -1 vote

        plz don't buy an invicta. their most popular diver looks so cheap in person

  •  

    What’s a good quality Citizen Eco-Drive that has a white face, metal band, and is for a female . Want definitely waterproof

  • +3 votes

    Thanks! Got the 20A. Been waiting a while for it to go on sale again.

    •  

      By the power vested in me it is my solemn duty to hereby absolve you of all blame and any residual guilt concerning the essential acquisition of this inexpensive exquisite horological masterpiece. ® © ™

  •  

    Would they be able to deliver on Thursday if I buy today?

  •  

    Ahhh, still waiting for the Save the Ocean Samurai to go even lower, $499 been the lowest it's been so far? Holding out for a bit more.

  •  

    I look away from ozbargain for 1 day and miss the samurai, of course that happens.

  •  

    Prices on Citizens don't appear to be as decent as some of the earlier OzBargain exclusive deals https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/410098

      Holiday sale price US $1575.00

      Not really a fair comprison when it’s more than 7 times the price.

      •  

        Not really comparing, just showing a nice deal for a good entry level Oris for those wanting to spend more…

        I'd rather one Oris than 5-7 "OZB watches"

        • +2 votes

          a much nicer watch
          Not really comparing

  •  

    OP can you confirm the crystal type on the SRPC79J? Page says acrylic but similar watches you have listed say sapphire.

    •  

      It's hardlex, which is Seikos improved version of a mineral crystal.

    • +1 vote

      Hi there. The glass is curved sapphire. Thanks

  •  

    Back in stock, but price is back to $469.
    Was gonna ask for raincheck or honor??
