        Damn the baby boomers that bought Rolex when they were a shit company for $600 to $1000 each. Some of these people actually thought they were paying a lot of money when it was only 2 month worth of pay.

        Now 2 month of my pay wouldn’t even be able to afford the Rolex watch band.

        • 2 months pay can afford a womens oyster perpetual!

          Really though the solution is to slow down consumerism, but thats a task that will take many a year.

            @Jenny Death: One good watch instead of 10 crappy ones :)

    There was a guy on the Facebook watch groups trying to sell these for $899 shortly after they were last on sale. It didn't go well for him hahaha.

  • SZSB012 deal was good too.

    Really unnecessary for Seiko to pay homage to the Root Beer. Dilutes Seiko's brand value imo.

      They've been doing this since forever, it's nothing new. Seiko gets a pass cos they're innovative in other ways.

  • This one might be worth heaps one day. Look at the crown!

      It’s a MagSafe crown

    I personally think it looks quite clean and nice. If you’re in it because you want to own a quality time piece, I think 399 is a great price.

    If you’re in it to resell… I don’t think this is really highly sought after, at least in any foreseeable future. A quick google search shows quite a few retailers with these in stock for less than the $995 retail.

      Obscenely overpriced at $995.
      More and more retailers are now starting to put a RRP on goods which are just silly.
      This way, they can constantly have 20-40% off sales, to try and make like you are getting value.
      But they are still making a tidy profit at the discounted levels.
      So GENUINE Value doens't start till we get 50% or more off.

      So, on that basis, this watch is genuine VALUE.

    • im happy to resell at $700 :D
      kidding i wont buy

  • Damn thats a large watch!

    Not even saphire? I stay with steeldive capt. Willard

      Yeah get a Pagani design submariner homage, $100 can't go wrong, Seiko movements and the rest of it

    • Hardlex is better for dive watches as it's more impact resistant.

      • +1

        Agree they should include sapphire crystal for watches $800+, many of the cheaper offerings and montages do now representing great value.

        Most people won't wear their watches diving but they are a great choice of watch (dress them up and down, great legibility etc).

        Ceramic bezels aren't impact resistant either, but that combined with sapphire crystal is a great combo to keep your watch scratch free and looking like new for years and years.

        • +1

          I don't disagree. Most watches will probably never see water.

          Still, at the end of the day it is a dive watch and hardlex is used for a reason.

          • +1

            @ihfree: Yeah that's fair enough, and good if you are putting it to real use :)

            Most high end watches are still sapphire, and mostly worn for day to day but I have taken my Oris to 30m and no dramas. Not afraid of leaving it on in the pool, beach or shower etc.

  • Wow it looks like a Rolex - best compliment ever

  • But it’s solar

  • Tempting as I'd like to add a solar watch to the collection.

    But damn, that cyclops magnification is tiny. Don't judge it by the marketing shots - watch a few videos. The date almost looks like it has no magification or perhaps 1.25 at most.

    Wish Seiko would put sapphire crystals on their lower priced models - it isn't that much of an added cost.

    First time I see I thought GMT Root Beer, then I see the price. 😂

    I'm mixed because this site offers me good promotion for things I don't need ^^ bought! thanks!

    • +2

      Don’t think I’ve ever bought stuff I need on OzB.
      Bought a shitload of other stuff over the years though

  • +1

    Solar pretty much means it will go down in value as soon as it's worn like any other quartz watch.

      Their quality control certainly is very hit and miss these days.

        Agree, and it's just a straight-up rip of a Rolex. You'd be better off just running a replica LOL
