Oh man, I got to try on one of my grail watches over the weekend and boy did it deliver.

I was surprised about the size actually, sitting at 44mm the Grand Seiko Spring Drive Diver felt perfect on my wrist, didn't feel too tall/big at all. (Infact, after taking it off and wearing my SKX007, the 007 felt a little small. lol)




Rodeo in Oakridge Centre has a nice array of Grand Seikos on display.

Beautiful Grand Seikos!
I didn't know anyone local is carrying Grand Seikos.
I'll have to make a trip to Rodeo then to check them out. Is that the only GS model they have?

On another note I have two homage watches incoming.

This one is a serious dive watch.
Helson Sharkmaster 600


This one will be a fun watch. lol
Getat 44mm PAM homage

I believe rodeo have a good selection of GS's, from the divers all the way to the dress watches. Definetly worth going to check them out.

Also nice sharkmaster, I can Definetly dig the rugged asymetrical case, to me it just seems so big and badass.

+ 1 for the mako; I've always wanted one as a fun cheap diver.

I'd go with with the blue, it looks pretty boss, but if you want some color, I think there is an orange model, right ?

What abt the mako makes it better than the ray. I like that the mako has numerical numbers. And the ray seems like its trying to look like a Rolex sub.

Actually, looking into the 2, I think the ray is the newer model. They differ in aesthetics only I think, and you know what, the ray actually doesn't look that bad. I think I actually prefer the orange ray to the orange mako. I think the metal bracelet on the ray has a bit of polish in the links too, unlike the mako. Google image them and just choose whichever you fall for first I reckon.

Hamilton vs Tissot. Which one would you personally go with regarding their automatics?
In particularly I'm looking at the Tissot Couturier line and the Hamilton jazzmaster viewmatic.

Heres my dilemma, I've got a couple of movado's plain black face watches and wanted to add a white face one so I chose the jazzmaster.
bUT I also want a more busy looking watch like the Tissot Couturier.

Either one I end up getting would be worn regularly. Just wanted your input regarding both lines automatic movement watches. I know they both belong to Swatch group. But which is more reliable and durable, bang for buck, worth it's cost, holds its design better?

Um well, both brands are basically in the same quality tier IMO, finish wise they should be the same, I own one of each and they are well made. I think they both use the same automatic movement, I'm not sure what grade each one uses. Sapphire crystal on both I think. If your choice is between these two, I don't think there is a drastic difference quality wise, maybe the jazzmaster might be the more desired model with watch people, so could possible resell for more than the tissot. Just go for whichever one you like more.

The Jazzmaster Intra-Matic is on my wishlist, but the MSRP is a bit high for what you get IMO

True that, I went to try the intramatic locally, and it was at like 900, fuck that. Much cheaper online(~500 I think) if u scout for deals.

Such a hard decision to make since they're in the same tier. Now I'm looking at some of the Hammy chronos. Lol

Hammy chronos are pretty nice too, I own the quartz ETO model, I'd love to upgrade it to the X wind model one day
Have you looked at the silver face tissot visodate or maybe even the le Locle models lol, there are so many to choose in this range.
Posted via RS Mobile

Edit: 4-500 range gets you into the seiko Sarb range too, which are extremely nice timepieces for the price

After an entire day of contemplating I'm thinking of settlng on the Tissot Couturier. Mainly because I like the orange in the face and strap plus its got a deployment clasp on the strap.
I know I can always change the strap. But I'd rather not.
Really tough choice. The Hammy is more $$$ too.......

I would have gone with Hamiltons.
I find the finish quality on the Hamiltons are a little bit better than Tissots.
Plus I find most of the Tissot models not very attractive........maybe except the Visodate.
