Default Seiko SSAOO series. A mini review.

This watches are big, solid and very nice ones. The bracelet is one of the nicest Seiko bracelets I have seen; solid links and a fine clasp, it screams high quality in your hands. And the fact that is handwindable makes it perfect for people like me, who has have too many watches and only a few winders.

This one was received this morning.

It's very easy to read in spite of having the (very) busy bezel. The crystal is kind of doomed, but just a little. The textured dial is just beautifull. The hands are very nice in its simplicity, the 24 hrs subdial its a fun feature that I also like. Feels great on the wrist (got to size the bracelet yet), the case it's not too thick and has a timeless look that I just love. And comes with 3 booklets: warranty booklet, instruction manual AND a thick boklet on how to use the bezel. I don't think I'll read it though

I already have this one,

And this other one will be with me in 10 days or so,



So, my collection of this series will be completed. Theres a model with a rubber strap (SSA003k2), but it's the same as the SSA003K1, so I'll pass.

I really like them. Will they become classics? Will they be the next Stargates? Who knows, and I really don't care. I just know I like them a lot.

Hope this mini review was of some interest to you, my dear friends


PS edit. Is it just me, or have you noticed that Seiko watches are getting higher and higher in price ranges? Are Seikos getting the price status they should, I think, have? (very high quality/price accordingly). I know there are lesser quality Seikos. Leaving those appart. Will they eventually become midrange-very expensive watches? Could we keep buying/selling our beloved watches without selling a kidney?
Shall we start to see our Seiko collection as profitable investments, some kind of money saving for rainy days? ???

Congrats on your new piece. I like the 24hr subdial, it looks awesome! And the hour marker that reminds me of mini silver bar, looks great...
