    Help deciding between Alpha 'Paul Newman' and Seiko SCE-009 (quartz bullhead)!

    Hi all,

    Been wanting to get a chronograph for a while now. Narrowed it down to two.

    Most quartz chronographs have never appealed to me but the Seiko Spirit bullhead seems to be a very novel design and has all the right complications I'd like with good cost (around £180).

    On the other hand I could go for an Alpha 'Paul Newman'. Mechanical - as is my preference, little cheaper - but perhaps poor QC? For around £120.

    Does anyone have any experience with both/either of these two watches? If so what do you think?

    Only my second post on WUS so appologies if I've put this in the wrong place!

    I would go for the Seiko even though it's a Quartz. Haven't heard much about alpha, and for that price it's probably not going to be great, with a Chinese clone movement (which for some people isn't bad but ehh...). Seiko is huge, and so if there are any problems you should be able to get it fixed easily.

    Get the Seiko.

    £120 for an Alpha knockoff is ridiculous.
