Big shout out once more to Adam, who sent me this ‘bonus’ Seiko on a 2-4-1 deal, unnanounced! I’m glad he did as it is a fun little thing. Wears a treat and feels solid despite the……. HOLLOW END LINKS! If this isn’t pure penny pinching, then please tell me what is. I’m sure Strapcode must be licking their lips at Seiko still releaseing new watches with poor bracelets well into 2021. Cheers, Jody

  1. I think they’ve kind of lowered the rep of the prospex range with this 👎 I’ll have to keep a closer eye when choosing from it from now on

  2. Usual crappy hollow end link-overpriced watch by japanese. Good thing that last seiko i got was the samurai manta. I moved on to Tissot

  3. I really like the design on this one but the $495 price tag… I dunno about that one, Seiko.

    Even with the standard 25% off I'm still not seeing this one as being worth the money.

    If it was $200 I'd buy one today.

  4. Seiko is getting good at squeezing money out of the fan boys that don't care if a watch is shitty build ,just as long Seiko is written on it!!
    Well….., just as my grandfather used to say: the dumb people never cease to exist!

  5. Yeah the watch head looks great but it does need a better bracelet or a rubber strap. A perfect match would be the Barton silicon I wear on the Hamtun, black but with a contrast baby blue.

  6. I have the black one of this watch and I wear it everyday now. Its probably my favorite watch I own. I agree the lume doesn't last very long though and not as bright.

  7. Just had my Royal One automatic watch from Didun Design delivered, seems very solid, lovely bracelet, screw down crown, exhibition back and the booklet says it has a Seagull movement in it … time will tell how it performs

  8. Great review mate. Your attention to detail means you come up with different basis for comparison than other reviewers and as ever I watch a watch review and I want to buy watches!

  9. Are you kidding me. Orient dose the same thing with hallow end links. And orient also has the crappy pressed class and 99% of their watches. I purchased the triton official live watchThe one with the reserve power indicator how disappointed I was to see pressed clasp. And what really pissed me off is every time I open the watch to put it on it reminded me that I should’ve bought something else because of the crappy pressed class. Shouldn’t have to buy a Replacement bracelet that should come with the best for that price or at least a high-quality maybe not the very best do you know what I mean. And they’re both companies are owned by seiko not coincidence

  10. Seen it tried it and was disappointed so went for the new black tuna solar which was cheaper but looked more expensive.

  11. The second hand doesnt line up with the indexes. Is it even possible for them to make a watch that's actually correct ?

  12. ” Hello and welcome to Just One More Watch ! " with Jody’s voice.
    I can do it perfectly synchronized now. 😅😎
    … maybe I should question my mental health now… 😬🤦‍♂️

  13. Hi Jodie, can you debunk something for the watch wearing world. Steve McQueen never wore a Rolex Explorer II. The Rolex Explorer II came out in 1985 and Steve McQueen died in 1980. He famously wore a Rolex Submariner 5512 and could never have worn an Explorer II. Thanking you in advance 🙂

  14. Someone should buy some of these and swap a Miyota 9015 for the quartz and re-sell them😆 It would be like swapping a GM LS crate motor in a Ford Mustang, should you do it? Probably not but you're upgrading!

  15. I'm pretty sure that insert is stainless steel, as it looks almost identical in design to my SPB149 insert aside from the numbers and added color. The whole thing would be much better looking if the blue weren't so baby. They should have gone darker like with an Aegean blue. Unless that watch is very popular, Strapcode will likely not be making a bracelet for it.
