my wrist is also rougly around 6 inci laugh.gif but its flat wrist so the watch stays ontop. I think it be suck if you have round bulat wrist laugh.gif

my version of sbbn have fixed non-removable link. so i have to remove the max i can and use the diver extension to fine tune. newer version can remove all the links

Surely it is much more wearable than MM300 laugh.gif

K1 is usually made in malaysia / singapore

J1 is made in Japan but so far the newer releases of 5s are mostly K series

is the same quality in both K and J so shouldn't make much difference where the watch was manufactured

The Made in Japan version carries a different model number.

SRPD63K1 equivalent will be SBSA013.

I was actually surprise to see this available on ebay as this model was released in 2012 for quite a short period of time therefore had to grab it into my collection

I was even more surprised when I saw the serial code on the case which has a unique number of 3O0003 biggrin.gif

depending on the watchmaker's skill / experience and available tools for servicing

best to consult a professional watchmakers first or contact thong sia to get confirmation on the model you intend to get

but usually for mechanical timepieces servicing is not a big problem unless you say have broken parts need replacement then different story

It really depends on which site you purchase that watch from.

I could recommend:
- seiyajapan.com
- shoppinginjapan.net

As they have a good selection of those mid-range and JDM Seikos.

I'm guessing long island watch? Though with all what you want, you might be more interested in the islander watches Mark sells.

I don't think our local watchmakers have those parts actually (if have, please correct me).
Perhaps, you could buy online and get it assembled by our watchmaker here.

Try: https://www.dagazwatch.com/

They have those bezels and dials for SKX mods.

my p20pro always struggle to get a nice sharp shot on the dial face :|

usually after zooming in the camera will be real shaky on normal outdoor light condition

otherwise it will do longer exposure shoot to over sharpen it artificially doh.gif

The size didn't help, plus SARB033 looked much better.

nice piece but the original straps looks a little bit long on you

you could buy a cheap silicon strap from shopee/lazada for about rm10-15 and use back the original buckle and keeper from seiko

otherwise barton watch strap would be a better choice as they have short silicon strap for mini wrist like us laugh.gif

Thought so. I understand it all. Even at 17+ cm, I cannot wear anything above 46 mm. in lug length.

However, curve lugs are different.


This person has 15.5 cm. Maybe can wear this due to the curve nature of the lugs. Not seiko though biggrin.gif

yes exactly curved and straight lugs makes a whole lot difference

that's why the sarb033/035 is fit perfectly for many small wrist humans like us with the combination of 38mm + curve lugs to get that round look of hugging on the wrist biggrin.gif

I've tried on the samurai too fits nicely on 6" but it is quite tall and squarish makes it feel bulky

the turtle case round shape doesn't feel right for me too

end of the day after few years of collecting still not a single seiko diver in my collection but 8 seikos in total of sarx and sarb series doh.gif

I prefer the non tuna mm300 such as SLA023, but they cost a bomb. If I’m still single I would buy them in a heartbeat. Sold my Swiss watches and started my seiko journey. No disrespect to all the Japanese watches tho.

silicon more comfortable and more suitable to pair with dive pieces

nato will also thicken the already thick dive case which is a no no for me laugh.gif

rclxms.gif still looks great eventho i've seen it thousand times.
regarding am pm, yes it have. to make it easier, you can just keep moving the minutes hand until u see the date move to the next date - thats ur 12am
its much easier to adjust that way, including during 30/31 days adjustment nod.gif

for the strap, you may look for Perlon strap type, more sturdy to support the weight and comfortable~

enjoy ur watch notworthy.gif
i keep it on the bedside and enjoy the lume before sleep tongue.gif

iirc, the 4r15 movement will have 1-2 hours date delay during change of date 12am.
as long it change between 11pm - 1am, i guess u set it correctly.

i still remember 7s26 movement date change from 11pm - 2am fully change to next date doh.gif

I see, and the manual there says

• Do not set the date between 9:00 p.m. and 1:00 a.m. If you do so, the date
may not change properly / it may cause a malfunction.

Do not set the date between 9 pm to 1 am, means the actual time or current clock time? and what kind of malfunction? and how do you know the watch got malfunction? Because I realised that the date of my watch turned 14th today

im not sure if its myth or depends on the watch compatibility, most people wont recommend to change date between 10pm - 4am to prevent the gear changing the date from damage/less accurate.
depends on the watch tolerance, movement etc - changing the date during this period may affect date changeover accuracy. anyhow if you want to service the watch - you may refer to previous thread, the name pop's up many time but i cant recall his name hmm.gif

perhaps other's can help you on the looking for contact person to service your watch. or if your watch still under warranty, just claim for new watch nod.gif

modern watches will not over wind

I just wind them till I feel it is enough.. usually you will feel a tension or diff sound when it is fully wound up

yeap that's true that manual wind movements the feeling is more significant on the stiffness compared to automatics

but I somehow feel that even the 6r movements has a slight diff click when reaching its max reserve

congrats on your new purchase.. always loved these seiko 5s especially in white / silver dials

you could probably contact the dealer that sold you on this piece on why it wasn't stamped

usually they copy the number behind your watch case onto the card

Been looking at 2 models, both Samurais.

1) Padi
2) Save the Ocean Collection - Great White Shark

Leaning towards the Padi first, probably along the way might scoop up the Save the Ocean edition - the blue is just too beautiful.

Thanks! Yeah I rarely see this model / colorway on people's wrist.

Also, I noticed the PADI Samurai has 2 versions, Japan edition and non-Japan wordings. Are there any difference aside from the JAPAN Movement wordings?

is the same quality in both K and J so shouldn't make much difference where the watch was manufactured

J series tends to be more popular for collectors / resale value and people tend to pay more for the Made In Japan written on the dial compared to

K series which has Movt Japan and usually made locally here in msia

the price increment from the old sarb017 is just insane

for this amount with unsigned crown too. can't they even bring back the crown from the sarb017 mega_shok.gif

I think seiko increasing the pricing will kill a lot of mid tier jdm watch collectors that adores this brand for their affordability as opposed to swiss counterparts

seiko already been increasing prices of the 6r models like the sumo / shogun... then the newer 6rmas / mm200...
while 4r models are taking over the old 6r prices.

that's why i think those "rumors" of alpinist / sarb getting discontinued is for ppl to quickly buy off remaining stocks... of cos that backfired abit since they're still readily available.
looking at the trend, the discontinued applies more to the 6r15... the models with 6r15 are just casualties...
then those models will later get upgraded with 6r35...like sumo / alpinist...

hopefully our 6r15 models maintain / go up in price in the used markets in future so we don't have to lose so much from our past purchases laugh.gif

the old SARBs are likely just going to go up in price, especially when the 'new' benchmark is MSRP at around usd700.

Hard to say la. the 017 @ usd400 is now being touted as a fantastic price, which to me is mind boggling given what we paid for it just a few years back.

Seiko is pushing it's price point higher and justifying it with the LE or upgraded spec game, but I guess that isn't unexpected.

well when it came out the retail price was also usd400+...and back then the currency wasnt as bad as it is now.
i remember them around rm1.2-1.3k?

even the sumo which has already gotten the 6r35...well u dont exactly see the 6r15 models shooting up in price...nor the non-x models...
imo any price increase is mainly due to currency fluctuations...

you can send back to your dealer to try ask them whether is it possible to send back for readjustment on the timing regulation + / - on the movement

or you can send to a local watch maker to get this procedure done which should be faster to get back your watch

slightly above 4r

I think 4r should be rm180 while 6r15 is rm200

I feel 6r servicing rm200 is worth it for their ori price to servicing ratio

most importantly is I love these watches and it does not break the bank smile.gif

Good luck 👍

Unfortunately for the me, my first auto was the Kamasu, with
Time accuracy of +12-25+ when I bought it. Refunded it. Staying with quartz only. Hate to reset time date when I go through my collection. Hate to set the date for my quartz as well for months less than 31.

Next watch will be a perpetual calendar. Maybe Bluetooth.

correct. But my wrist can only support like 47 mm lug length. Before it goes over. I think my next watch is the casio royal oak. Comfortable with it. Technically analogue with perpetual calendar

u do realize the casio is 48.5mm lug to lug right...
this proves that lug to lug isn't the only factor but how the lug is designed also.

It wears smaller than the dimensions suggest. My entire wrist width is 50 mm. I've tried it, it fits well. My seiko sgeg097p1 wears bigger even if that is 47 mm

Yes, but the case design will help people with smaller wrist. The seiko turtle and casio oak is a great option for smaller wrist. Still maintain a big dial.

I will try to find the new gravitymaster gwr-b1000 to see if this carbon core guard can be worn by small wrist. The curved lug design is interesting. Reminds me of the tissot t touch.

Yes. Let me know how the gwr-b1000 sits on the wrist. I'm eyeing the more budget option...gts-b200 because its supposed to be smaller in dimension than most of the carbon core or gsteel models out there but still provide the same functionality and looks.

I also cannot stand have to always set the time and date on my seikos. all sitting in the watch box collecting dust. Im mostly wearing my gshocks these days.

Will also look at the GTS-B200 as well. Cheaper alternative to the gravitymaster, better for me. Thinner in depth, but higher in lug length though. After owning the Kamasu and wearing it for a month daily, I don't think it is for me. Don't like top heavy watches. Reminds me of my Timex Explorer at almost the same weight 150-180 gm (on stock bracelet) which is 17 mm tall. Wiggling the watch makes it loose. My 20 year old Timex T6 explorer compass sits more in the watchbox now than on my wrist. Which defeats the purpose of cherishing it. Granted that was the only watch I used for 15 years (before smartphones and I needed an inbuilt compass). Now it just keeping for memory's sake.

Maybe divers are not for me. Rotating bezel which I will not use. Smaller dial because of the bezel. Weight, I tend to use watches which <100 gms more often. Thickness of the watch because of the WR of 200m, which to be fair, I'm not going to go anywhere near 10 m of depth. Which is why the Casio GA-2100 is so much nicer/makes sense. Since I'm working a desk job, a watch too thick also looks out of place on a small wrist. Cannot wear long sleeve shirts. To me, a watch has to serve a function first, rather than looks. Looks are a bonus. At the end of the day, that is the watch which you will always gravitate to without thinking.

One thing about divers is it sure look nice though. If I had a bigger wrist, and I don't mind getting this diver inspired Casio MTP-S110 watch.
