    Thanks for your thoughts Mike. I thought so as much from looking at the photos, great to hear confirmations.

    Anyone heard of any fake sarb's out there?
    I want to know if I get a used one or one not from one of the jdm dealers that it is genuine.

    Looks surprisingly good, im starting to think that you cant make this watch look bad. I will have to get one eventually and see for myself.........

    Really considering this watch. Couple questions for those in the know that would be kind enough to help.

    1. Are the gold tones platted real gold or just colored gold?

    2. Anyone have this and a BM6400? How does this compare in size when worn? I know on paper this is slightly smaller. Does this look and feel smaller?

    3. Best non oem bracelet option?

    Hello all,
    I am thinking of picking one of these up... I really think it's an amazingly beautiful watch... I can't figure out the size though? I currently wear my snk805 (38mm) as a daily watch. I've grown to like the smaller size of the snk, and am wondering how the sarb017 compares, sizewise.

    Thanks!

    It is a very wearable 38mm, I have never owned a snk, but judging from pics if you are ok with the size of one, you will be ok with the other too.
