Every time I look at a Seiko watch, I cannot help comparing it to Glycine. Seiko comes out way short of Glycine offering. Glycines have better design, better movement, better finish, sapphire crystal and is a genuine Swiss watch maker. Earlier this year when I was new to watches, I bought a ~$240 SKX and later a $370 Glycine combat sub. When I consider that my Glycine was from an AD while the Seiko from a grey market dealer on Amazon, SKX looks heavily overpriced. It is half the watch that a Glycine combat sub is. Yet every youtube channel and 'influencer' keeps on peddling this grossly overpriced watch from the past.
I was looking again to Seiko for a ~$500 purchase and I see that same stuff. Still no Saphire, no 6r15. WTF is going on?
