  3. JDM vs domestic SARB017?

    It seems that there are two options for the SARB017, the JDM version which can be purchased from various sources, and a U.S. (or worldwide?) version, which apparently comes in different packaging, and can be purchased in the U.S. as far as I can tell only from Amazon. Any thought's on these two...

  6. WTB: SARB017 or SARB033 or (yeah right) NOT GREEDY SPB089

    WTB - Wanted to Buy
    That's pretty much it. Not looking to spend $500 on the older SARBs, and would happily spend $650-$700 for the newer blue SPB Knowing the watches accuracy would be a plus. Happier with a leather or NATO band, don't want a metal strap. Thanks folks -Rob
