For sale is the coveted, and now discontinued, Seiko SARB033.
I purchased this 3 years ago from the original buyer and wore it a handful of times to my office before the pandemic had me shelve it for over a year. It still isn't seeing much wrist time so I'm sending it back into the world for someone else to enjoy.

Overall, this watch is in excellent condition. When I wore it to the office, I only had long sleeves on so it was "kept in the garage". Although this is a strap monster, I opted to not change out the bracelet so you'll find no "shaky hand" jabs on the backside from springbar removal. The sapphire crystal, and exhibition case back crystal, are in perfect, flawless shape. The highly polished outer bezel looks good although the slightest, most delicate hairline scratch is found between 3 and 4. It was difficult to even photograph (only visible in one shot) and even though I have a discerning eye for these things, I didn't notice it while wearing.

As expected, this "Baby Grand" is keeping great time and date changes are as expected. The crown is a pure joy to wind with a different style smoothness than my Oyster Perpetual but somehow, more satisfying.

If you have a small wrist, this is the right fit for you. I measure out at 6.5" and this one looks perfectly at home on me.

The SARB033 is one of Seiko's most iconic watches and is beautifully finished, with polished sword hands and a rich black dial that plays with light, both reflecting and swallowing it, light no other I've been so lucky to own.
