    Has all the style and class of a submariner at a mere fraction of the cost. Obviously not on par in terms of build quality, but it's good enough for me! Nice pic!

    Bracelet observation. I'll start by saying that I LOVE the bracelet on the 063/061. Ticks all the right boxes for me. Great looking. Solid. Comfortable.

    Of course, we've seen the predictable criticisms:

    It rattles (???)
    Pin/collar links (I happen to like them)
    Stamped metal clasp construction (although partially machined)
    etc.

    One criticism I have NOT seen (perhaps I missed it), however, is the perhaps the most obvious: the endlinks not matching up/aligning with the lugs. It's WAY off. Doesn't bother me a single bit, but I'm just wondering why this 'flaw' is seemingly getting a pass from the bracelet naysayers.

    What gives?

    The Strapcode MM300 bracelets endlinks fit great for some and only need slight modification for others and can be purchased separately for $30 and work w the 20mm Super Oyster.

    I absolutely love the bracelet on my SPB077, I've been drooling over Rolex here lately after I finally stepped up my game with the 077 (sapphire crystal, nicer fit and finish, better bracelet), my Rolex AD just got in an Explorer and Air King and let me check them out and try them on, obviously they are incredible but I honestly haven't found another bracelet yet that comes closer to the feel of an oyster than my 077. I didn't think I'd like a tapered 20mm, but to me it's so much more comfortable than the 22mm on my Turtle.

    It's interesting how much we hear about the bezel, chapter ring, hour marker alignment issues with Seiko.
    A short while back I got a call from my AD that they'd got a non-date Rolex Submariner in stock for me. I went to collect it and found that the bezel didn't align with the hour markers, the AD even checked against another Submariner Date before agreeing.
    Moral of the story; the grass isn't always that much greener even when you're paying 8x the price!
    Enjoy your Seiko - they look fantastic and offer great value for money.
