    Seiko wins

    Been wearing various other brands on rotation lately - but came back to this Seiko SLA025 today
    Popped it on a different strap lying in the drawer & Bingo - what a beauty
    I dunno - i'm always thinking of this watch and that - and coveting this and wanting that & then I see what I have
    and for a short while I'm thrilled - wish this contentment lasted before I was on to something else

    The strap looks good on your Seiko - the yellow strip complements the indexes. Enjoy your reacquaintance with your old "friend".

    That looks lovely Si but it’s only a matter of time before the Tunas start kicking up a fuss.

    I don't blame you, I was very impressed with the 025 when I tried it on last year at a local AD. Being the Sport Watch winner at Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève was deserving.

    Re: Seiko wins

    Thanks Mike

    I have been surprised by the lack of positivity to this watch - various criticisms, often contradictory, from it being too expensive, being too close to the original when it should have come with a new bracelet and wider lugs than original; not authentic enough to the original at 2mm thicker (this was to enable it to be used as a pro saturation diver - the original was only for air diving); not adjusted movement, not right golden colour etc

    It was expensive (even with discount) - but compared to other watches in similar price range I thought worth it; a very limited production run with no mass produced cheaper versions; a revisit of a true legendary Seiko, hand-built and Zaratsu polished in GS factory, a top drawer beautiful movement even if unadjusted etc And I was delighted it was recognised by winning the best new sport watch at the Grand Prox d'Horologie de Geneve - quite the accolade.

    I think its a bit special

    It's perhaps my favourite looking Seiko diver.

    I had the good fortune to try this on at my AD. I cannot afford it but I would love to have it. I think there is only one thing wrong with it (although I could live with it, and Seiko has done this a on few in the MM family), the red painted stoplight. Wish it were lume and wish it were what I call baby asprin orange. Oh well...
