    Seiko SARB071 vs SARB065. Help me decide?

    I've been trying to get my hands on the Blue Spark, but I guess these will do. Unfortunately I can only afford one at the moment, but I can't decide which to buy. Both are fantastic looking pieces. Could you guys give me your opinion and if you've owned any them, give a brief review?

    Thanks.

    SARB065 is the first picture with the shiny dial.

    SARB071 is the one with the black dial.

    My vote is for the black dial - it looks a lot more clean and elegant

    065 is more interesting and I like the crown and dial..071 can;t see any difference with 003 except the price tag?

    Yeah I think the only difference with 071 is the strap. But for some reason it's cheaper than the 033

    Oh I should also mention that the 065 has a blue second's hand, it just doesn't show too well on the picture.

    I like the 065 it is a very nice watch, but i just love the 071, that simple black dial just really does it for me. I don't think you can make a bad choice out of those two watches though.

    I'm after the 065 right now. I just like the larger 40mm case size and the sunburst blue dial is so sweet looking. The 071 would be a good choice if the case was 40mm, but at 38mm it is still a nice size.

    I want 065 and 066 too but when I saw this Orient WZ0111EL I wasn't sure which should I get :(
    Also for some reason all the wrist shot of 065 doesn't look nice :/

    Which one would work well in any occasion? What do you guys think? Is the 065 more formal and dressy or can it be worn casually? Same with the 071?

    I think both will work with formal and casual, but also depend on you style. I wear shirt and jeans for casual with this
