Re: Seiko Prospex Diver SPB107 - Topper LE

I like the hands on this a lot better than I did on the Tuna.

Re: Huge Seikos

Still couldn’t make up my mind and found Topper has a 25% off sale going on for select watches. Took a hard turn in another direction for a watch I’ve been thinking about for awhile. Instead of an automatic diver on a strap, I figured a gold digital on bracelet should be low key. Not going to lie, r...

Not a diver, but made the cut all week so far

I saw this model last night. In my odd state of indecision on watches I’m now considering one of these instead of another Seiko diver. I love it.

Anyone see the MM200 on an ISOfrane before? I’ve looked and can’t find a single picture.
No pics but I tried it. The Iso is to thick. The Scurfa worked better.

I’m kind of surprised. All of the pictures of the MM300 next to the 6R15 model make the MM300 look like the smaller watch. I do remember the MM300 being a thick watch but otherwise good dimensions.

Re: Huge Seikos

The more I look at the SBDC063 the more I appreciate the fact that Seiko got the hand length right. It always stands out to me when this isn’t right. Definitely looks like it would be perfect on NATOs too.

To this day I just don't get why anybody buys a Rolex wannabe, regardless of price. I'm content wearing an original design Seiko before I'd drop cash on anything like that.
After trying Squale and Steinhart subs I do agree even if Rolex is more than I want to spend.

Re: Huge Seikos

If you end up with a Shogun get the Crafter Blue fitted rubber. Perfect combo imo and very comfortable. Personally I like the bracelet, but the watch works so well on Natos and canvas you wouldn't miss it. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190708/8ab6cc41a5026184fb65898afdef9a6c.jpg I might consid...

Re: Huge Seikos

If I had to choose right now I’m between the Shogun and the new SBDC063. The hands are a bit too short on the Shogun and after having the newer model Tuna I really don’t care for the hands on the 063. Slightly leaning Shogun but even then I’d do the sapphire right away. I honestly pictured all these...

Re: Huge Seikos

The SPB077 And SPB079 wear smaller than their specs would suggest. They wear smaller than the turtles imo. I'd also give a sumo a try if you haven't. The case curves in such a way that it wears really well. I find both more comfortable to wear than turtles or even the skx due to the curvature of th...
