So punta aisle ng seiko eh lapit agad yung babae hawak-hawak susi reading-ready na buksan. Tapos tinuro ko yung color green na canvass strap sabi ko ganda. Sabi ng saleslady eh streetfighter edition daw blanka. So natuwa ako kais 1990s yan pero not my game. Pero ito relo i like the style. Presyo eh nasa 24thou tapos less 10% and 1000pesos off pag may advantage card = magiging 20thou. Ngayon tiningnan ko sa amazon 300dolyares =16,500. How about kaya sa alimall, makati cinema square, avenida mas mumura pa kaya?

    Tapos nung sabi ko check ko muna online eh nilapitan pa ako dalawa babae parang manager na last day na daw ng sale. Sabi ko sabi nung kasamahan nyo maextend daw. Eh iniinsist na last day na daw hinid ako naniwala. Pagiisipan ko talaga ng mabuti ito kasi standout ako dito bagay na bagay sa akin,





    almost two weeks have passed...
    any developments?

    i haven't actually held one in my hands and turned the bezel to see how resistant it was against moveing, but the youtube vlogger said so.
    he said that that he wore one on an almost 24-hour basis, even when asleep, and that when he woke up in the morning, found out that the bezel had moved as he was asleep wearing it, probably because it rubbed against something, or got snagged against the blankets...
    common sense would have assumed that that 24 hour bezel was racheted, just like the SKX that some writers say it descended from...

    ahh for alignment pala..

    When I opened the box and took the watch out, my bezel was misaligned. Of course it was, itís Seiko! However, when I gave it a spin around to see how bad it was, I realized that Seiko had finally fixed their bezel alignment issues with this watch. How did they fix it? They gave this watch a friction bezel. No worries about misalignment here, just spin it clockwise or counterclockwise to line it back up. I never use GMT bezels to track another time zone because that is just pointless. With this said, Seiko has found a way to give themselves a new problem. The GMT hand is not properly aligned. While this is a bummer for sure and exposes Seikoís ongoing QC issues, this could be more easily fixed than a misaligned bezel.

    sobra naman sila!
    eh, 'di balutin ulit nila.
    hindi naman seiko wrap yan.
    store-wrap lang yan!
    ... protection against eager costumers' prying fingers, siguro.
    heh heh.

What brand of watch do you wear? [Merged]
