Here's my Seiko SARB033 dress watch:


Thanks for the link Stephen, The 003 in leather is what I wanted but couldn't get, so I went Swiss with the Tissot le Locre. It seems to be a trustworthy site, so once again many thanks.

Radio,
My SARB033 came with a bracelet and within 10 minutes of opening the box, I had the bracelet off and a leather strap installed. The Seiyajapan link is completely trustworthy and highly regarded for folks shopping for JDM watches.

Dale.......The Seiko MarineMaster 600 is a beauty but it is huge, 50.7mm x 16.2mm. You'll be hard pressed to get some sleeve cuffs to fit over it. Beyond that, it is a beautiful watch. Retail is $4,200.00

Tool watch, meant for actual divers doing real work!

Not it the realm of Grand Seiko, but Seiko recently released the successor to the incredibly successful SKX series of divers. Hailed as the return of "the Turtle", the new Seikos harken back to the vintage and legendary Seiko 6309 series. The original Turtle reference 6309 has become quite collectable and back when it was in original production was extremely popular as an extremely reliable and durable "beater" watch. Some units were known to work for over 20 years without a service.

Here's the original Seiko 6309:




Enter the new "Turtle" the Seiko SRP "Prospex" series, with vintage-style cushion case and drilled lugs, solid end links, and a new movement with hand-winding and a hacking function.

The new SRP773 in blue


SRP777 with black bezel with a nice leather strap:


Also available with the "Pepsi bezel"


Beautiful rugged case with brushed and polished surfaces, drilled lugs and a nice beefy bezel:


Personally, I like the SRP775 best with gold accented bezel, hands and markers.




Retail is about $450, but these have been selling online for about $375.

Nice review at Worn & Wound:
