    Can't believe I'm saying this but I'd go for the Citizens.

    Ditto. After trying out Citizen Signature Eco-drive watch, I'm inclined toward the Grand Classic. Fit and finishing is superb.

    The Brightz all day long. I have the Sdgm001 and absolutely love it. Fit, finish, size etc.....

    My biggest issue with the Brightz is the font for 'AUTOMATIC' on the dial. Seiko uses a nice, slightly retro script for many of their other watches, which seems much more elegant than this all caps Helvetica. This alone would push me more towards the SARX035, despite the fact that it lacks the more interesting dial and cabochon crown of the Brightz.

    I've tried the Citizen, and it's just not for me - seems a bit busy for my taste. A closer Seiko analog to the Grand Classic could be the SARX015, which is one of my daily wear watches. Slightly busier and chunkier than the Brightz or the SARX035, but still more reserved than the Grand Classic. Probably not as nicely finished though, and the bracelet is the biggest let down.

    I was in a similar dilemma but ultimately I opened my wallet for the SDGM003. Online pictures are slightly misleading as the word "AUTOMATIC" doesn't appear to be as large or prominent on the wrist. The 003 just sparkles. If you are okay with the 'bling' factor I would highly recommend the 003 - it is a few steps above the sarb033/5 (especially the bracelet - look and feel). Overall the SDGM003 is a solid timepiece and feels like candy on the wrist. Mine is currently running at +1sec/day on the wrist and face up over night. Please feel free to PM me with any specific questions you may have.

    Dido. I bought the sdgm003 and was just in love with it before I had ever seen it in the flesh and it didn't disappoint when it arrived. My wife saw the pics and didn't see why I liked it so much. Thought it was actually unimpressive. Until that is, she saw it on the wrist after I got it. The sunburst dial and faceted indices just play with the light and look beautiful. Needless to say she is a convert now and loves the look so much she has been hinting for me to get the sdgm001 for her.

    Congrats! I believe you made the right choice! If I didn't want another Omega, I would probably purchase one of these
