Day 7 with the SLA033. When I got her she gained 5 seconds a day. Not to my liking in this price class. So I regulated her myself for better results. Within the seven days of wearing she has not gained nor lost one second now. The 8l35 is a very stable running movement, no matter in which position the watch is put. So the first week leaves me really satisfied with the Willard reissue.

Thank you Mike, coming from you I really appreciate it. It's day 8 here with the SLA033. As much as I love all the new watches I am lusting for some vintage by now. I should have a nice KS coming back from the spa ( to use this wonderful term of yours Mike) within the next days, this will probably get some wrist time than.

I hear ya Phil ... It would appear we all have polyamorous relationships with our watches. :oops:

It would be hard for me to not divide my attention across different watches that suite different moods. I love my newer watches equally to my vintage.

I recently went thru a huge selling
spree (half my collection) to fund a few purchases. My Seiko TransOcean was one of them. It actually feels good to be at a reduced amount with the goal of giving more watches more wrist time and 7-day wears. Currently at 20 watches total and will bottom out around 17 .... it's an intimate group now.

Day 11. I wanted to switch today. Already had another one for some minutes on my wrist. For reasons unknown I switched back to the Sla. She wears very well, is still +-0/24 and has that absolute coolness factor. I know that I should be over something like that already years (decades) ago, but, but, ah damn it - it’s an extreme cool piece to wear. 😁😁

I think this is more due the plexi. The dial has a little little bit of grain which can be seen in the right angle. Otherwise it’s smooth silver/white depending on the light.
