I have a pile of Gs and various Casios, but only one Seiko auto. It would be so easy to start hoarding them as well but the one I have is good enough for me.
Yes actually orient models are good looking too. Like mako II. I like those numerals.This was my route in, too.
I'd recommend looking at Orient watches too, they've pretty much taken over from Seiko in the 'value for money Japanese automatic diver' category, IMHO. Google Orient Kamasu, Mako and Kano models.
Nothing wrong with that. I would've returned the G-Shock with a dead battery too, for ease of mind. The fact that I bought it brand new and has a dead battery would bug me to no end unless I exchanged it.Hey guys I need some advice. I am in a frenzy. I am liking, thinking, watching, dreaming watches these days.
today I saw a seiko with one of my friend who just bought a watch. I think it’s seiko sports new model. I clicked a pic attached with this post on my hand.

so, here is my question is it normal for a through and through gshock fan and user. Who bangs watches and rough uses them most, like or move to a seiko.
This is the first time ever I am trying a seiko and don’t know anything about it. Strap, bracelet or whatever it’s on.
Do they require maintenance, it’s a automatic so doesn’t require battery change that I am aware.
Will a gshock user ever get used to it or regret it later or lock it up in cabinet.
I don’t know what has happened. I have bought many watches but somehow I am not being satisfied. What do you all suggest..!!
I bought a solar gshock recently which was received dead. What if I return it and get this seiko?
Seiko movements are relatively cheap and easily available. In that situation I would just change the movement out - it would most likely be cheaper and easier than trying to get it serviced and any competent watchmaker could do that for you.My question is, what do you do when it is time for an overhaul.
I had my old Air King give out once during my 20 years of ownership, never had it overhauled except the one time that it died.
Something mechanically had failed inside, and the local watch shop fixed and overhauled it at a reasonable price of three hundred some dollars.
I could imagine getting a Grand Seiko an overhaul. I don't know how much the Seiko's go for, but how about the $500 and under Seiko's, would you get it serviced?
This. Being a Japanese watch fan, naturally will touch on Seiko and Citizen territories. But I can tell you nothing can replace a G. G-Shock has its only style and nostalgia that's unique on its own and nothing quite like it.A G-Shock fan may own other brands but he/she will never leave G-Shock.
No watch is as durable as a G-Shock. Nothing comes close in terms of durability. And that's a fact.This. Being a Japanese watch fan, naturally will touch on Seiko and Citizen territories. But I can tell you nothing can replace a G. G-Shock has its only style and nostalgia that's unique on its own and nothing quite like it.
Hey the gentrification is good. Remember when a brand new ROLEX used to cost under a grand? Perhaps SEIKO will go the same way. Chance for investment pieces.Casio and Seiko were always my main manufacturers of watch buying. But while i still love Casio, i've had enough of Seiko due to their excessive price rises and poor quality control. Even the watch you've pictured has a slight misalignment on the dial/chapter ring. They can be worse than this. If you get an ok one, Seiko are nice watches. But i think they are overpriced now for their lower tier 4r movements, which is in the watch you pictured.
