Seiko SARB031

Some quick shots of the very very affordable (around USD300+) and stunning handwindable and hackable Seiko SARB031. Very reminiscent of an old style Grand Seiko (and perfect if you don't wanna plunk cash down for a GS), this piece is really gorgeous and will suit you well if you pair it with a nice french cuffed white shirt. Has the solid 6R15 movement inside and a solid signed crown for easy grip during winding. There's also a black dialed version in the SARB029 which is also nice. Click on the thumbs for the larger pics.

Finish is excellent at this price point though I am not fond of the visible holes on the outer side of the lugs. It has a hardlex crystal that is curved and this gives it a really vintage look.
