    Every time one of these Seiko deals pop up, I miss read it as 'Sekiro' and thought they made a watch to go along with the game.

      Have you seen the new Save The Oceans that were just announced? Look amazing.

      •  

        And the new Prospex J series that looks like it's coming out of the Grand Seiko factory that they announced at Baselworld!

          I love the new Sumo (same case, sapphire, new bezel looks less cartoonish) but massive price jump.

          In fact all the mid-range Seiko arehl/have riseb in price, not necessarily in line with their specs.

    Bought this previously. One of my favourites among many.

    Non Sapphire glass make u second guess.!

      Hardlex / mineral glass is used in divers for shatter resistance. It really doesn't scratch that easily unless you're beating the hell out of the watch.

      $775 is the RRP but price at Starbuy has always been around $499 mark.

    Really intrigued by this watch. However from YouTube reviews it seems two common faults with this watch are a misaligned chapter ring (common to most Seiko watches) and misaligned crown.

    Makes it kind of hard to purchase this unless you see the watch in person. Feels like the kind of thing you can't unsee if yours has it. But man does this watch look good!

    Did anyone manage to buy this online with perfectly alignment?

      My chapter ring is very very slightly off. Whatever.

      I think the crown being off is blown out of proportion. It looks wonky from nearly any angle, especially in photos, but it isn't. I actually got card shims to measure and it was fine lol.

      .. I then dropped it a week later and took a chip out of the bezel which is much more annoying.

      Purchased Black Samurai SRPB51K from Starbuy last year (when it went on sale for $350) - chapter ring aligned perfectly, and as Merlict below said the crown is not actually misaligned, it just looks weird if you're not looking at it straight on.

      It's a running joke that if you get a Seiko with perfect chapter ring or bezel alignment they skipped quality control.

    Thanks OP, I have been looking at Seiko watches recently. Both SSC675P & SSC015P have caught my eye and now I am seriously considering it. Any ideas how long this sale will go for?

    Accuracy +45 seconds per day!?!?

    • +1 vote

      It’s a pessimistic estimate. They’re more accurate than that in general.

      •  

        when I got one, it was about that much per day. They aren't very accurate mechanisms.

    I got grey face samurai last year …. think the next one will be the samurai in save the ocean, now to find a killer deal for it.
