    What's the deal with "silver toned" Sarb033

    Hi,

    I'm planning on buying a Seiko Sarb033 from amazon. But the product description says "Silver Toned" in color. I'm not sure what does that mean. I like the usual stainless steel color of the watches but what's silver toned? Is it the yellowish color tone on the watch. Isn't the part or the model number of a watch unique to its color, design etc. Can there be 2 watches with same model number one with usual polished stainless steel color and one with "silver toned" stainless steel? I'm thoroughly confused.

    Please help.

    Thank you!

    People just have weird ways of categorizing things sometimes. So the seller is just being vague in their descriptions.

    If I have to guess, they probably meant the dial has a silver tone (not really) to attract the people that prefer silver or white dials over cream dials.

    Just go by pictures and videos and you will be fine.

    The metal is standard SS btw and the dial is definitely cream rather than silver toned.

    Hi Tomatoes11,
    Thank you for replying. Just to further clarify, the dial in Sarb033 is black. It's the metal I'm talking about.

    Well the case isn’t silver, it’s steel. However of course it’s polished so it looks like “silver” as in shiny

    Sorry my bad, I was confusing it with the sarb035. Yeah that amazon poster is tripping. It’s standard 305l stainless steel used in all non Rolex watches

    Take Amazon descriptions with a pinch of salt. Assume that if you see something on Amazon that doen’t tally with what you think or know it’s usually Amazon that’s wrong.

    This.

    If you're buying a watch on Amazon don't even read the specs. Copy & paste the model # and check somewhere else.

    Likely referring to the case finish. It's polished stainless, which is a silvery color, as opposed to being gold or gold plated or black pvd.

    The person writing that description is likely just someone filling in blanks with no knowledge of what information watch collectors look for. It is a silver colored case. But to a watch collector that could describe a silver painted resin case. Don't take Amazon descriptions literally.
