Default New (backup) watch

Just shipped the Sub to NY for servicing, and it'll likely be gone for about a month. Got sick of wearing a Walmart watch, so I splurged a little. Upscale, very comfortable, and mechanical movement. Hard to tell from my picture, but the face is a deep jade green. Supposedly limited edition, and there are several on eBay for more than I paid.

My daily is a Citizen's EcoDrive Stilleto, but I have a Movado Visio and an antique 1945 Breitling for fancy times. Seiko is a good score. Congrats.

I looked at this Seiko last weekend; almost bought it:




had a little problem making out the hour/minute hands though (may have been the store lighting).

I like these.

Reminds of shopping in K-Mart as a kid.

Since this is a higher end watch, can it be serviced like a Rolex and have the bracelet polished? Band is stainless steel, so I'm thinking so? Where would one send it for that service when the time was right?

Nice watches up in this thread. But I'll stick to not wearing the Omegas and Tag that I have. Actually, I don't know where my Tag is... haven't seen it since before the move.

Very nice, congratulations! I saw that watch at my AD last Friday. That green is sharp!

Yes, no problem getting a Seiko serviced. Be careful who you let polish the watch, it comes with Seiko's Diashield coating to help resist scratching.
