    Recommendation for a Replacement for SARB033

    Hi all,

    I'm looking for a recommendation to sell my SARB 033 and replace it with something else. After a couple years of wearing it I have found that the thickness and accuracy just aren't what I want.

    I'd like to replace it with a watch that has similar looks and meets the following:

    thin, quartz movement, date, interchangeable strap, and very importantly a sapphire glass

    Thanks for the recommendations!

    I had to look up what your watch is


    How about a Certina? https://www.certina.com/search-results?token=quartz#

    Never heard of them before, what's their track record like?

    Any replacement will be a downgrade. The SARB 033 is a real classic.

    I get that, but it's just not right for me. I don't nice enough to keep it wound so it loses lots of time.

    I'd actually be really interested in a solar watch if there was one in my requirements.

    Seiko and Citizen both make lots of solar quartz models. You'll just have to google till the cows come home and find something you like. They will be thinner than the Sarb but most will be a bit larger in diameter. This is BM7100-59E, just an example:
