as i was scrolling down i was going to say Seiko - nice clean dial - but then i saw the Lorier and man i like that dial - more interesting! And even the bracelet. I'd vote for the Falcon.
The Miyota 9000 series movement in the Lorier is equal or superior to the Seiko 6R in my opinion and shouldn't stop OP. The hesalite crystal vs. sapphire in the SARB is another matter, easy to scratch but also easy to buff out the scratches with a plastic polishing compound.To buy $500 watch with Miyota movement with hesalite glass, you’d really have to like its design to make it worthwhile, in my humble opinion.
Not the Lorier.Which one would you choose? and Why?
So what do you suggest then?Not the Lorier.
And not the Seiko - which looks nice from a distance, but boy are the hands and indices awful at closer inspection. Some sort of cheaply chromed plastic, brass or whatever. A major turn off.
In the <500 price range? If you want a great watch (as a timekeeping instrument) I’d recommend looking at G-Shock. Otherwise some Chinese brands like San Martin offer by far (!) the best fit and finish at that price point.So what do you suggest then?
I own the SARB035. It was a nice watch for its time, but I certainly wouldn’t pay 500 clams for one. The Lorier wouldn’t be a bad choice despite what anyone says about having an acrylic crystal. The next Traska Commuters will be released in July and will be worth the wait. It’s a very well executed watch.So what do you suggest then?
G shock is a totally different kind of watch😂 they look very childish/plastic to me IMO. I do have a square GW-5000 tho which is kept in amazing condition for the last 10 yearsIn the <500 price range?
