    Tough choice- SGEH45 vs SGEH39....which would you choose, and why?

    So wanting a white dial around 40mm with 20mm bracelet, saphire crystal, 100m wr, quartz, non auto, non solar, with lume and date narrowed my search to these two Seiko models.

    SGEH45

    Obvious differences the hands and markers and the 45 has crown guards. The bracelets are different as well but it is hard to tell from pictures and there are few videos of these. Lume is very important to me daily so the extra lume on the hands of the 45 are a plus along with the lumed second hand but the red is a negative on that one.

    So if any of you own either or both please chime in with some insight both are priced around the $100 mark with the 39 costing slightly less than the 45.

    I have one of these arriving tomorrow but am not 100% sure I made the right choice.

    id go with the SGEH45 because it looks nicer with the red minute hand, better looking minute and hour hands, and also has a crown guard

    You'd probably need to see both and try them on in person to really know which one you prefer

    I agree with you on that but they are not available locally to do that. Anyway I will be trying the 45 today when it arrives then hopefully stop second guessing.

    I’d go with the SGEH45 because to me it looks better and when it comes to watches the look of a piece is all important (to me anyway)

    Arrived today and I am happy with it. Pictures really did not do justice to it. A super value but that is also probably true for the SGEH39 as well.

    True and I agree especially after seeing it on the wrist. A second hand hitting the marks is also very important to me and this one does not disappoint although the angle of the pictures above make it look like it is off, it really isn't unless you look through a loupe for a few minor misses.
