Seiko SNE498 arrived

Post by toxicavenger » Mon Jul 23, 2018 7:23 pm

I ordered it last week on Friday, Mimo's had it in the mail Saturday, and I received it today. You can't beat that.

I just did a video on it also.

Looks great Terry. This definitely got added to my list. Also liked the video with the comparison shots.

Cool watch for sure and congrats!

Dibs if you change your mind.

I've wanted to buy this one so bad I dreamed I did last night.

At least I think it was a dream.

I was just looking at these a couple of days ago - will check out your vid later.

You may cover this, but how does it wear size wise compared to a NAFT? :lol:

It fits better imo. The Turtle wears a little to big on me.

I knew of two other 35% off codes, but used yours.

I couldn't hold off any longer. I'm finding myself drawn more to no worry maintenance free watches, especially one with a coolness factor like this one.

It’ll likely be my next watch.

If you have any interest in selling the rubber strap let me know.

Great stuff T!
I would love to see comparison shots with the SKX, I may have to cave

I still don't understand: is this a LE or not?

It's not a LE from my understanding, just a new model.

Not an LE. I have a SKX coming in so I will do some pics in a few days.

Yobokies has DLC coated stainless shrouds for these, if the plastic bothers you.
