    Hamilton Jazzmaster vs Seiko SARB033?

    Looking for a little pro/con regarding a Jazzmaster H32505131 and a SARB033. As you probably know, the Hamilton has the ETA 2834-2 and of course the Seiko has the 6R15. The Seiko is a bit smaller, and a little cheaper. I have and like both brands, so no obvious bias there. I thought I'd throw it out for opinions, all are appreciated.
    I don't really need a dress watch, but when has "need" had anything to do with it?
    Pics lifted off the net. Thanks.

    I hope you're not expecting a well reasoned argument in favour of the SARB because you ain't going to get one from me (it's beyond me) I just know that it's the SARB that pulls at my heart strings.

    I like the Hamilton. But really they are quite similar. Go with the one you like best.

    I understand. I've noted the SARB has quite a following, they only disagree on the 035 or 033. Thanks!

    Hamilton, you get an extra feature (day/date) as opposed to date-only. I'd always get the ones with most feature for the bucks.

    You're right, they are similar. That's what is making it tough.

    not big on either of those two....but if I had to choose one it would be the SARB. Not even really sure why though.

    I'd love the Hammy without reservation if it didn't have the day indicator. For me such a complication would have to have some utility, and I can't imagine cluttering up the face of my watch to verify what day it is when, unless I just came out of a coma, I already know that information anyway.

    I'm honestly a big fan of both the SARB and Jazzmaster lines... Personally it would come down to aesthetics and to me, the SARB is a little cleaner without the large day.

    Any thoughts on the ETA vs the 6R15?
