                    Nanook65 1st Seiko diver, and only 2nd proper Seiko besides the many digital ones in the late 80’s and early 90’s as a kid. I’m really enjoying it actually.

                      Lots to like about Seiko Divers. Like I said I have had about a dozen of them & its not because I couldn't find one I liked, but just the opposite. Some, I like better than others, but I could honestly wear any of them every day and be perfectly satisfied. I started out with a monster and then I wore a Turtle almost every day for at least a year. Same goes for a Tuna. On to 2 other Tunas, 3 different Sumos, Skx007, Samurai, mm200, 62Mas remake in black. Blue and Black again. I am kind of stuck on the 62MAS remake in black sbdc051 right now, but I can see that changing at some point.

                      Unfortunately Seiko has been increasing their prices a lot in recent years so they are no longer unquestionably the best value out there like they used to be, but that doesn't mean they aren't worth buying or they aren't good or whatever. Seiko makes many excellent Divers at an affordable price point.

                      If you haven't tried a seiko diver, I would highly recommend giving one a try.

                        Nanook65 yeah that 62mas remake is pretty sweet! I can see myself going down this tabbit whole. It started being interested in a Samurai, but when I dae the Monster next to it, I couldnt get it out if my head until I bought it. Now, I’m still keen on the Samurai. Will prob get it soon. Yeah they are not so cheap anymore. In my country even worse. The new Monster retails for $690 here. Thats rough

                          Seiko is very popular and you can almost always find whatever model you are looking for pre-owned on WUS m2m or if really desperate you can always find them on e-bay. Just like Reps, people are constantly buying to try out and selling basically brand new, but pre-owned watches. Every brand and every model varies a bit, but you should be able to buy most seiko models for somewhere in the 50-70% of retail area & when/if you go to sell it won't cost you much.

                            Luckily I have a connection where I can buy it straight from the importer. So it works out the same as the cheapest I have seen on the web from grey dealers. Thanx for the advice any way

                                at least you have that going for you!

                                Here is my current favorite, the sbdc051 62MAS remake. I am wearing it on a Bonetto Cinturini which is super nice and is not a lint magnet like the Seiko straps. I find the Seiko strap to be a bit longer than I would like and I notice that the keeper slides around quite a bit which I don't particularly like so I have found what I think is an excellent solution. Since I like getting rid of the tail on the strap and I also like having it on a deployant, what I do is use the OEM clalsp from the bracelet and pair it up with a Bonetto Cinturini strap. I like it a lot on the OEM bracelet and on leather too, but I still have it on the summer rubber. You could pick this one up for roughly $500 USD pre-owned and in Mint condition. Lots of mid tier Seiko's are in the $500 ish range pre-owned right now. For that money, I still think they are an excellent value. And the lume.....
