I'm looking at these two watches as a potential buy for my 21st birthday in October:
Premier SRX008P1 watches for Men from Seiko | Seiko
Premier SRX007P1 watches for Men from Seiko | Seiko
And I was wondering what people thought of it here. I've been lurking various topics on different watches the last couple of days and you seem like a really good community of people to ask for that. When I started looking I was looking at Rotary watches, I quite like the rose gold styled ones. I've since moved a bit upmarket and I'm looking at Deyfruss, Tissot, Citizen and so forth. I wasn't expecting to find a Seiko I liked, I had a few preconceptions about the sort of things they did, but I must say these two are utterly beautiful in my opinion. What that says about my tastes is another matter.
These two watches are near the upper range of what I might be able to get, it's not my money after all. I quite liked this Tissot too: http://www.my-watchsite.com/classic...her-strap-t912.428.46.058.00-tissot-3868.html though that probably is beyond my means and a bit dressy.
A few questions on the Seikos, do they use a quartz crystal and does it really matter? What sort of burden does it put on me in terms of upkeep? In terms of getting it serviced, lifetime of the leather strap ect. I'm looking for a watch which is good in big do's as well as general nice occasions, which I think the SRX007 does perfectly. The sort of career I'm pursuing means that I will have times to wear a dress watch, but more need for a watch to wear in formal-ish situations in work and life.
I hope I haven't said anything stupid or am taking liberties by asking you to help me select a watch. I think that the Seiko is the one I will end up asking for, as it really grabs me. I love the detailing; the edges of the different dials are sumptuous. My only worry is that the steel version is too shiny and that the rose gold is a bit too showy.
