Re: Yema Superman Heritage 63

I'd buy one of these had I not just bought the regular Superman Heritage. I hadn't read all the negative reviews of the brand or I'd likely have not followed through, but I'm glad I did. I love the watch, love how it wears, and the purchase was uneventful. The only negative is it runs slightly fast...

Threw the SPB149 on Toxic Shiznit. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200729/b4a59784e4c464bc31c123b4c28d7784.plist That looks perfect. If I'm not careful I may end up buying one of these.

Re: New Seiko Thread

I really like the rubber strap they paired with this. Just wish it was shorter (and I find metal keepers uncomfortable). Seiko SPB149 LE Not sure it’s a keeper, but it’s a nice package. Great value in this one, IMO. The blue/grey dial is unique. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200728/913975eccec...

Re: New Seiko Thread

Thanks Jeff! Does it feel as comfortable on the wrist than the SKX? Is it me or does the SKX dial / bezel are larger than the SRP151? Man, I have a strap like yours, think I'm going to try that on my 153, looks great. I think the SKX is slightly more comfortable on the wrist, but now I'm thinking i...

Re: New Seiko Thread

Well, count me in on the SPB153/151 craze. If you ever wanted a slightly smaller and "nicer" Turtle, you need this. Wound and set yesterday at around 8pm, left it dial up on the dresser at 11pm. This morning it was 7+ sec. OEM rubber is super nice (as always, a little to long for me). Also wears gr...

I remember asking Nesbitts, because they had my Speedy in for service, and they basically told me to forget finding parts.

That's awesome. I wanted to do a minor mod on my SM300 but found it impossible to find OEM parts, specifically that second hand.

Re: New Seiko Thread

I just got mine, and it's really well done, much nicer in person than any picture I'll manage to post. It feels gigantic to me right now, but that's because I've been rotating two 39mm watches. Will have to see if I get used to it. If I hadn't bought it directly from an AD I'd suspect it was not a r...

I'm growing impatient with Topper... Seems every other country and USA AD has them except Topper. When you're willing to pay full MSRP you have expectations of getting it promptly. At least I do. First time pre-ordering a watch hasn't been the best experience. I'm considering pulling the plug and w...
