    Re: Seiko SARG009 Initial Review: The sportsmanís watch

    This Seiko model is really growing on me. Thanks for the thoughtful review and excellent pictures all around. I have really been eyeing the SARB033/035 but this SARG has something really unique going on. I'm just afraid it would "wear large" and it's already ~40mm. But it's just so beautifully balanced and executed. I'm sure I'd get used to it. The sword hands and font choices are perfect.

    Very handsome sports watch, I think seiko got the design right on this one. I almost pulled the trigger on this one while saving for my speedbird 3 and your pictures have me thinking about that old WIS advice; why not get both!

    Thanks for the review.

    Would someone mind having their SARG009 bead blasted? I'd like to see the effect.

    Very nice watch, it's been on my list of potential next pieces! Having looked at tons of photos and videos of the watch, the hands don't look plastic to me but rather a painted black.

    I certainly hope a JDM Seiko at this price point doesn't have plastic hands like you mentioned!

    I really wanted to like it. I considered it, but the different-sized numerals were the same reason I didn't want the Hamilton Khaki Officer.

    I don't particularly like the font for the numerals either, which remind me of the Italian fasces.

    I think it's perfect in every other way. Too bad for me, I guess.

    Thank you OP. I think this is now on my short list. I'm loving the new Rolex Explorer however I do not have $5,000 to spend, which lead me to this watch which I really like in pictures and think I would love in real life.

    Is the SEIKO logo applied or printed?

    biscuit141, I also want the explorer but have trouble justifying $5000 on a watch, whether or not I can afford it. I picked this up and am very very happy with it, it is a great all around watch, and unlike a $5000 watch I will probably use it more for the things the explorer is intended for. I have quickly added this to the forefront of my rotation of watches.

    Noni51, the Seiko logo is applied

    The photos really do not do justice to this watch, the real appeal is in the details and the deep dark slightly sunburst dial is amazing, especially the way it plays off the slightly domed crystal in direct sunlight. The only real complaint has already been noted and it is the bracelet, which is more than sufficient function wise, but could be just a tad nicer at this price point. Particularly trying to explain why there is a gap at the clasp between the bracelet links and the clasp itself. It is about 2mm and is designed that way. Just and odd decision.
