Seiko's answer to Harold Ng's Yobokies mods, seriously.


Newer model, last 6 months or so, with their 4r15 movement which is probably going to replace the 7s series in the near future. Has drilled lugs which is good. Bezel is rather nice.
Solid case back
Screw down crown
44mm x 14 mm thick (50mm with crown)
Hardlex Crystal Material
200m Water Resistant
Movement : Caliber 4R15, Automatic 21 jewels

You can get it here:

Descent lume, great compared to non-Seikos:

Thanks, always interested in a bargain. Happy to help out, your PMs led me to realize that we ought to share the basics on this model with the forum as a whole. If you want a Sinnish Seiko this is your model!

Fine by me, SinnFull Seiko it is! As for the B&R - just don't keep up with those as square cases really are dreadful IMHO and a fad. You're right though, the hands and dial do look similar.

Watch looks much more like B&R to me but you cant argue that Seiko decided to get into the mod business with this piece and the price kinda shows it!!

. . pretty nice. Slides right in between a few of the current model line-ups. Little bit of the best from all . . .

$325 for a Seiko???!!

Kinda pricey at first glance, but I guess if the bracelet HAS SEL and the movement hacks and can be hand wound it could be worth it.



This is my $350 Seiko

REAL nice Doc !..Big numbers, Big hands, cool bezel and bracelet.
I also like the way the dial seems SO deep with this Seiko. That
lume is just terrific too !..Another GREAT design from them..Thanks
again !

seems like the skywatch link you gave its not really in stock from what is shows when you add to cart and is $25 express shipping with tracking............the other option is registered mail for 2 week delivery with no tracking for $15..........for right now, i think i willl stick with bluedial.com ........might be a little more money, but at least i know they have it and are reputable.......plus i wont be buying one for a month or two, so buy then, i might find it cheaper elsewhere......
