Hey guys, I've done some searching around found a few threads but nothing recent and nothing specifically about the SRP231.

I was wondering what people think about the SRP231 with the new 4R36 movement. Specifically I'm wondering how it looks in person. I'm not a huge fan of any gold coloring on watches- it either looks too "blingy" or old man-ish. I'm in my mid-20's, professional and looking for a watch I can wear to work (tie and dress shirt everyday) as well as casual enough to wear on weekends.

There are great pictures here:

Seiko 4R36 Diver (Regular Edition) - SRP231K | Yeoman's Watch Review

where the gold-coloring on the dial and on the hands seems very unobtrusive and understated but I was wondering if anyone can speak for what it looks like in person. I love the red SRP233 but I'm a one watch kind of guy and it's something that can't be worn with a suit (which I have to wear about once a month). Thanks!

hmm ok thanks guys. unfortunately i can't stand stainless steel bracelets- i need to have rubber. for some reason i feel as if my wrist is constantly changing sizes so i need the ability to easily tighten or loosen the band as needed. rubber is always by far the most comfortable for me.

do you guys think the skx007 or skx173 on rubber would be a better option for me? i prefer to have the new 4r36 movement but i guess it's not a big deal.

thanks guys. sounds like if i were to get one watch (which i'm only getting one no matter what) the skx173 is the way to go. i suppose i could get the skx007 for a fair amount cheaper but i like the dial of the skx173 much more and i would rather purchase from a US-based seller.

anybody have any recent feedback on ordering from watchsavings via amazon? from searching i understand that watchsavings is just another name for jomashop and they've had sketchy reviews on this website in the past, but not any threads recently...

also is there a reason for quite a large number of 1 star reviews on the skx173 on amazon? sounds like for some reason this movement has become quite inaccurate in recent years, gaining 10 minutes/day? i owned an orange monster about 5 years ago with the same movement AFAIK and it gained about 15 seconds/day.....
