    Seiko cocktail time for under $400 is a good price, imo :)

    • +5

      You would at least expect sapphire glass at the 400+ price mark but nope not with Seiko. Major let down.

      • +1

        Generally yes. I have other watches with sapphire for less than $400. Still, the cocktail times are quite good looking and I would have preferred sapphire on mine for that price too.

        • +2

          Yeh It literally would have cost me $10 maybe $15 more to have a sapphire in there. Really put me off the brand a little but love their King Seiko - SJE095 A little bit too expensive for me but looks great.

            @itsmoe: Tbh I'm not so keen on buying another Seiko either. But I still really like my cocktail time :) Perhaps I could be persuaded to buy a Grand Seiko one day… but then again, probably not haha.

              @thisisscotts: A Grand Seiko is a dream but we can only stay hopefully, I started my saving process and I have about $1800 saved up just for a watch in less than a year. Let's see how much I would have saved up by the end of next year, maybe perhaps a King Seiko, Grand Seiko or a Tudor Black Bay.

                @itsmoe: Haha mate, as much as I like the idea of having one really nice watch, I can't do it. I see thousands of dollars and then my mind switches to buying long term shares :)

                • @thisisscotts: Oh yeh I think once I have the money to buy I will be hesitant to, I feel like maybe max 3 luxury watches are okay, a dressy/formal watch, a daily and a super special events watch. This is my broke ass speaking. lol

        IMO Sapphire crystal leans towards being overrated in general. If you beat up the hardlex, just apply a bit of polywatch and its as good as new. Unlike Sapphire where it will require you to replace the whole crystal to "remove" a scratch.

        You're buying into the cocktail time range for the dial anyway - certainly not specifically for the bracelet finish, glass type, movement etc.It is still a "mid-range" watch after all.

        • Or you can just replace the crystal all together, I've replaced the crystal on almost all my watches to sapphire, it's just annoying to know that a sapphie is $20-25 on Aliexpress which is faily cheap and yet Seiko decides to go for the cheaper option and still charge a premium. Could be me.

          Sapphire are super hard to scratch too ma dude.

    This Bulova Marine Star is so hideous and yet I can't help but want to buy it.

      For $20 more you could get the rose gold solar Citizen BU4018-11H which is a nicer design.

      Don't have to worry about battery changes then.

      • +1

        and a nicer name too, have never liked Bulova.

      • Link?

      • Nah that looks old, I like this cocktail for some reason

      • They make a much better one, the CA4453-14E
        It's a bit more expensive but worth it, although there aren't many left in the wild.

    • Must admit there's a certain Jules Verne quality to it.

  • +5

    Went for the Seiko, thanks alot.
    Will be my first Seiko after having an Invicta only

  • +1

    "Bezel Doesn't Rotate"
    Really don't understand choosing that design then.

    • Yes, save yourself the anguish..
      Doesn't cost much more for one with a proper dive bezel.

      • +1

        On the other hand it's $159 delivered for a Citizen solar watch with a dial colour that lots of people seem to love, + 5yr warranty.

        Eco-Drive watches are known to run for 15 to 20 years before the capacitor dies if looked after correctly.

        • Yes still a great deal and cheap. Probably perfect for your first solar watch etc.
          Just saying plenty of choices for a bit more in the 200-300 category for solar/eco-drives.

    Do people under 70 wear watches like this?
