    Re: Seiko SARG009 Initial Review: The sportsman’s watch

    Thanks for the review and the pictures from everybody. Question for everybody that has one. Looking at the pictures, it almost seems like the color of the lume is different between the hands and the dial. The numerals on the dial are more beige, whereas the hands are whiter. Is this the case in real life? How noticeable is that?

    Hey Dre,

    I don't have the watch with me today but there is a slight color differentiation when the lume is active. I find that if I have been inside all day or out at night that you can't really it apart. For some reason, the hands just glow brighter.

    I've just looked at mine under warmish indoor fluorescent lighting and the difference isn't that noticeable but outdoors it's noticeable that the hands appear to have a slightly 'unwell' greenish tinge compared to the warm brown dial and creamy-yellowy numerals.
    I think this picture gives a fairly accurate representation.

    Cool, thanks for the explanation and pic. I like the watch a fair bit, but that difference would bug me. I've already sold off one watch where once I saw that same difference, I couldn't not see it whenever I looked at the watch.

    Re: Seiko SARG009 Initial Review: The sportsman’s watch

    I just got mine in the mail yesterday and overall I am very happy with the watch. The 40mm size is the reason I went with it. 38 mm on the Sarb just seemed too small for my wrists and was a dressier watch than I wanted so I'm glad they made the Sarg bigger. Finishing on the case is as expected. Not over the top but very well done. My criticism is strictly on the bracelet. The quality isn't what I expected. It is a little squeaky when off the wrist and there is significant play in the bracelet side to side. These are minor things and when on the wrist it wears fine. I also had trouble sizing the bracelet appropriately. A third micro adjustment hole on the clasp would have been better, and there is plenty of room on the clasp to do so. With another link it's too big, without the link it's just a bit too small. Could just be the unlucky size of my wrist as well. The last thing is the deployment clasp. The buttons are VERY easy to depress. Although I haven't had the watch unexpectedly come off my wrist yet, I wish it took a little bit more work to depress the buttons on the side of the clasp. Overall this is a great watch for the money and very versatile. I plan on adding a a strap or two to expand its function even further. Here's a wrist shot of my new addition.

    Just following up on my original post.

    It has been about 5 months since I have had the watch. Without regulation it has now been very consistent at -1.5 to -2 seconds a day. Pretty damn impressive at this price point.
