Seiko in my hands now , I’ve put it on the crafter blue samurai specific strap and I really like it .
Fella that modded was really quick , and reasonable if folk want a recommendation they can PM or am I allowed to put his details up .. I have no relationship with the modder
I only just realised how lame their marketing really is... Every add I see there is some motorcycle in the background:/ i wonder who would buy a 4800€ watch that says "benzin" on it
Dug out my old Swatch and stuck a new battery in.
That watch is batshit mental. I kind of like it!
Is liek a yacht masta. V Americas Cup. 😎
I just saw a guy with yoga mat and a black deus hoodie.
He did not look like he would buy that watch. And yoga in the park is not what happened in that motorcycle gang tv show.
Am looking for a new bezel & insert for my SNZH FFF mod- apart from Yobokies any good recommendations ?
That's awesome - I don't like the OG bezel on these so I defo would have changed that too!
Load of new Seiko & GS releases up on Hoodwinkee, nearly every one a swing and a miss, remarkably. Couple of real stinkers.
The two seasons spring drive GMTs (the black / white ones) might be relevant to @Dammit’s interests tho.
The black lacquer-looking one is actually rather nice.
Rado- anyone got any strong opinions on them? The Captain Cook diver looks interesting.
Meh, not a fan of putting the GMT hours on the dial itself (as oppose to say the rehaut), it makes it too busy in my opinion. Not a fan of the stubby GMT hand or the GMT markers serif font on the Spring/Summer models either.
@dammit should get this, obvs.

No experience, but Namoki do some nice stuff.
Needs some gold in the bracelet. Cheapskates.
I used DWL
dagaz good for me in the past. More and more UK based options too - plenty on Google if you search Seiko bezel insert.
quite like this 140th anniversary "limited edition" seiko 5
thanks, I'll suggest they take a wonder down there once shops reopen.
Only 11,000 pieces... 🤔
Bezel insert looks nice.
Only 11,000 pieces

Seiko doing a Omega or Panerai
The laurel Alpinist re-release looked great at first glance. And then I saw that date window. And if that wasn’t bad enough, who thought putting it at 4:45 would be a good idea?
Edit - it's also two grand...
I like the 37mm version a lot. Looks really nice in the flesh, dials are lovely. Not sure about the rotating logo though. They always seem quite a lot of money at RRP for what they are to me
Love it until the price tag.
It remind me of the Nivida watch.
Beating the Swiss at their own game as usual.
