I’ve taken to wearing my BB58 as an everyday beater. I’ve done the last two months of house refurbishment wearing it, and it’s turned out to be a pretty hardy little thing. It’s kinda nice committing to not being precious about it.
The bezel is the weakest point and picks up knocks and scrapes on its outer edge as you can see at the 5 and 55 markers.
Happy new year to all.. may we all get a new watch this year :) and health and all that
I’d thought Pelagos be an excellent beater on account of the titanium, heft and it’s mark as a proper dive watch (ish).
Seiko still tickled me to this day.
Generally, I don’t like black straps, but this looks great.
Hillier's jewellers with BOXING20 :-)
looks like they have an sbp143 in stock too
Looks great for £80!
Walking to cure hangover.
I work indoor a lots so seeing it outside really look like the case and bracelet is darker than it appear online (sbp143)
Either that or it been exposed to the elements of the workshop, either way I love the darker tint.
I enjoyed it on a nato too, always looked great.
I’m tempted to get a red rubber nato one for it.
Someone got it and it work so well.
Excuse me I do a better jobs of my hair than him.
Saw this online, don’t remember if it was mentioned in the “GS GMT want” part of the conversation, I think it looks great.
Smashing ice for the last 45 mins.
First Grand Seiko GMT i really like!
And oof, that's a killer.
Too much text of differing sizes and styles in my opinion.. the earlier one (with long GMT hand) is my preference so far...
The photos for online sales that Seiko distributed for these are uniformly terrible and convey none of the 'subtleties' of the finishing. Weird.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
