    SARB!!

    Although I find the Citizen to be a better watch (movement wise), I do not like the style, so my vote Goes to the SARB!

    I may be a Seiko fanboy, but the Citizen in a heartbeat!
    This pretty much sums it all up :)



    If it was a SARX015, then I might have to think twice.

    Considering I just purchased a SARB033 from Higuchi this morning, the SARB.

    They are both beautiful watches. I like the style of the Seiko better. The movement on the citizen is gorgeous. And from what I understand it's an excellent movement. But I would still pick the Seiko because of the appearance and more traditional style.

    They are both lovely looking watches but I'm biassed toward Seiko so the SARB got my vote.

    The SARB, but that is because I would want a dress watch. The Citizen has a weird half-dressy, half-sporty thing going. It looks good on a diver, but not when it is a dress watch on steroids.

    I want the front of the Seiko and the back of the Citizen.

    The SARB033 does have a great looking classically designed dial, but the Citizen SGC has a much, much better movement and far better bracelet. Plus I like the 41mm of the Citizen over the 38mm of the Seiko.

    I have onwed the Citizen SGC but not the SARB033.

    For me I'd choose the Seiko (and not because of my obvious Seiko bias). The main I'd choose the SARB is the size, 38mm is great for a non diver, but I think 41mm is too big for me. The movement in the Citizen is supposed to be great though and at least looks better than the 6R15 through the glass.2
