    Seiko Brightz SDGM003 vs Citizen Signature Grand Classic

    I've always liked and want to get a SDGM003 as a somewhat dressier alternative to my divers and chronos. I already own a Brightz (SDGZ013) and love the fit & finish, and I guess the SDGM is finished to a similar standard. Over the weekend, I saw an uncle of mine wearing a "different" Citizen, the Signature Grand Classic, it's quite an impressive watch. I've never seen a SDGM "in the flesh", but on pictures it looks pretty great (and I'm a Seiko fan), but it currently is a bit more expensive. Which one do you think is better? Which one would you get?

    The SEIKO, I like the finish on the dial.

    Hrm... Between the Citizen and Seiko, the attributes on the scale seem to be: Crown guards or cabochon? Lume or no lume? Tooly or flashy? I would go for the Seiko because of the dial but I would be thrilled with either. With so many 6R15 movements around, sourcing donor parts for repairs should be easy down the line. What movement is in the Citizen Grand Classic? One of their proprietary calibers that are not rebranded as OEM/ebauche Miyota movements? If so, parts and service might be an issue. It is a beautiful watch, though. I can see your dilemma.

    I'd get the Seiko. You already have the SDGZ013 (wow!) with the cabochon crown, so I think the SDGM003 would go well with it.

    The Grand Classic is a really nice watch but that excessively large chapter ring really brings it down. If it were one millimeter smaller and the watch was 40mm instead of 42 it would be an easy win. I still love mine but every time I wear it I can't help but think about the watch it could have been.

    If we talk aesthetics, my vote goes for the Seiko.

    but the 28K Miyota in the Citizen it's awesome!
