I just bought a Seiko SKX031 of a member here (https://forums.watchuseek.com/f29/sei...od-581114.html). I have always like watches. My first expensive watch was a Bulova, then 2 Movados that I had problems with so I got rid of them. Yesterday I told a friend of mines that I had purchased a Seiko and showed him the pictures. I first I told him "how do you like this Rolex" I held the phone picture away so he could not make it out and he said " it looks like a old style Rolex". I then told him it was a Seiko. We proceeded talking about watches and not to long into own conversation we stopped a jewelry stop to check out some watches. I feel in love with the Omega Planet Ocean Chrono and also saw a lesser priced Tag Heuer chrono. So me being new to watches I have been doing some reading on them. I still ask my self if a planet ocean is worth the 5-6000 price tag. Even the Tag at 1800. I have heard of seikos going YEARS with out maint. and rolex needing maint. every 5 years at a big price tag. I wantted to get a prospective on high end watches. Like I said i love the planet ocean but out of my reach. The Tag is in my reach, but is it worth it? What is the maint. on one of those watches?
