Yeah I saw this coming.

Post by Torrid » Mon Sep 11, 2017 11:57 am

So it all started with the Massdrop deal. I ordered the last available NAFT 775 but as close as I've got to buying one something has always turned me off. I ended up canceling the order and just bought a 007 instead. It seems I can't stay away from Seiko. What's wrong with me?

I firmly believe though that everyone should have a 007. This one I hopefully will keep.

Yeah the Seiko cycle begins again. I love the brand. Hopefully my streak of poorly running Seikos is over.

I bought one of your SKX007s from you a few years ago. It's my sons' watch now. A classic.

100% agree.

I don't always wear it but it's good to know I have it here somewhere.

The 007 was my first automatic watch. I guess I've had it 15 plus years by now.

Great watch - I'm wearing it right now actually. If i wasn't such an idiot, I could have stuck with it as my only watch and been just fine..

LOL... so true.
EVERY man should own a Seiko. And yes, preferably the 007.

I never did add the 007 to the collection but finally I found a used one here in Japan and just bought it. After wearing it, I knew it was meant to be a classic for Seiko....next to my Marine Master :)

I just ordered one yesterday. I've lost track of how many I've had, but it's got to be double digits. I don't think there's a better beater.

Since I got it I haven't worn anything else. Mine has been very accurate so far. Looking forward to the new blue/grey Samurai arrival.
