You need to add the green Sumo and this Thai market one. There are several Thai market only Sumos.

Wow, that's wrong on many levels.
Now this one, I'd consider...
Here are a few more.
Please tell me these are yours...
Well, I guess you need to get to work!
I love the Sumos but, at 44mm, I find them too big for my liking.
I hear you. I like 44mm, but it's pushing the boundaries of how far I should go. Thankfully, I have preferred larger watches forever so I am willing to forego conventional wisdom on wrist size vs. mm to an extent.
In reality, 42mm is probably closer to where I should be. I know should also be open 38mm, but they just seem way to small - more a function of what I am used to rather than an objective wrist to mm recommendation.
Now, I have been known to roll with larger watches, but most often with Fliegers that were designed to be big in the first place.
My perfect size is probably 38mm but it's not uncomfortable to wear 34-36mm. I have a 33mm, which I find too small.
I don't think I've posted this one yet... Oddly, I ran across a "Black and Orange" WUS thread today...the same day that I just happened to wear this one to work. Of course, I had to snap a picture to add to the thread so I will drop it here as well.
PS @Sneezybeltran , I had lunch at El Fenix today. Thought you might appreciate that!
I do appreciate that. I also like that watch!
I'm gonna have to PMBD! That's my watch! Is that yours?
I wish! It was a limited, non-US, edition as far as I know. I have seen a few on watch recon, but they are pretty pricey. My brain is telling me around $1000, but it could be more than that.
I just consulted the Googles... Thailand limited edition, sold out, went for almost $1800.
Are you a fan of the general color scheme? I am probably about to sell a nice Deep Blue that at least looks a little similar.
Yepppp! Love that watch. I'm working on house and dropping every bit of cash and too much credit into it, so not looking for anything until it sells. After that though, who knows? Haha, will buy a watch or 2 after for sure though.
I still haven't found the energy or motivation to sell anything yet, but I figure I will let my IT watch friends know before I try in the wider watch world.
I broke out that Deep Blue a couple of days ago trying to talk myself out of selling it, but it's just too big for my wrist (I found my limit!). It's too bad because I love the look. The dial is beautiful. Oh well.
Today it's a simple Momentum Torpedo. Momentum reviews are mixed, but in my experience, the two I have (especially this one) are solid watches for not that much money. AND, they just came out with an orange highlight version of the Torpedo - Christmas!!!
Post a pic of the deep blue. I like the bigger watches and I think SA turned me onto one which I liked, but was also trying to watch my spending at the time. Also, how many watches you have?
Will do. I like bigger watches too, but I can only go so far with the tool divers before it starts to get ridiculous on me. My wrist is only about 6.75. Fortunately, I am a pretty tall guy and the wrists are kinda flat and wide for that size. It gives me at least a little latitude in watch size. The place where this one doesn't quite fit is actually the vertical more than anything else because I can usually get away with 45mm and 51mm lug to lug (although admittedly pushing it).
The sad thing is that I couldn't tell you how many watches I have. The Breitling and the two Balls (oddly fitting) are the only ones that were really pricey. Otherwise, I try to find good deals.
...But, yes, I may have a problem...
Here's that Momentum, by the way...
I am not a huge fan of the yellow, but I found it for a really good price with the sapphire upgrade included. I thought I would give it a shot. Despite my stylistic misgivings about the large font and its arrangement around the dial, I have to admit that it works from a functional perspective. It's one of the few watches that the dial is perfectly clear without reading glasses these days. It's like the Jitterbug of watches!
@SAhornfan has created a bunch of monsters.
Speaking of creating a Monster, how about a jade green one? https://forums.watchuseek.com/f29/seiko-jade-monster-szsc005-new-eu-based-4801561.html
Going to have to avoid this damned thread.
I already "collect" too many things and looking at these watches is feeding my "Gotta have it" addictions.
You must be on a jade green kick!
The good news for my wallet is that I can't quite get into the Monsters or SKXs like I do the Sumos. Really, I am even struggling to get into the Samurai. I picked up an orange one (surprise) a few months ago and I have only worn it to get sized.
Actually, this brings up a question for you. Have you dealt with the official Seiko US service? I am curious to know if I can get things like extra OEM bezel inserts and stuff. I have seen lots of aftermarket parts, but it seems like most of them change the look - especially with the Sumo bezels.
I have only dealt with them once and the experience was very positive. I needed a collar and pin for a Monster bracelet I had and without question, they sent me a new link plus the collar and pin (they come as a set) free of charge.

I saw that. The guy has had it listed for a bit, so I bet he would listen to offers (or maybe he is too stubborn for offers, and there the watch sits).
Thankfully for my wallet, I am not a big turtle guy...even though I love that Seiko orange!
Appreciate you pointing it out!
Oh man, I love it! Congrats!
The Seaforth is on my list if I can catch one at the right price. Gotta say that I really like it without the date. To my mind, that just makes it that much easier to pick up, set, and go.
By the way, I happened to drop by our mall tonight for a Halloween thing with my boy. I was surprised to see that Samuels is going out of business, not that I was remotely keeping up with it (or going to the mall). Anyway, the point of the story is that they are selling their watches at about 25% off. The one that caught my eye was a blue Seiko Cocktail Time. It wasn't a bad price, but not any better than Long Island Watch yet. I might let it stew for another week or so to see if it drops further.
Thought y'all me like to know in case you are in the neighborhood of your local Samuels. You might find a deal.
Look what I found. https://omegaforums.net/threads/seiko-prospex-europe-limited-edition-2018-„dawn-grey-series“-turtle-srpd01k1.85137/#post-1099415
Nice... Funny thing is that I just saw an LE Samurai less than an hour ago with the same grey/orange highlight look. It was a beauty. Talk about a good color combo! If they do it in a Sumo, I am in trouble!
Fortunately for my pocket book, the Samurai isn't doing it for me. I picked up one of the orange ones a few months ago, but I think I am going to set it free.
That's a turtle. I thought you didn't like the Sumo.
Yep, I knew it was a Turtle. I was just saying that I saw a similar Samurai today. It has me wondering if they are going to do a grey/orange LE push across the models.
Sumos are my weakness. They are my favorite Seiko by far.
I want to like the SKXs too, but I can't get past a non-hacking, non-winding movement. I know it's sacrilege, but there it is.
After some Google research, they're calling the series "Dawn Grey". It's a European market series and right now it's only the Turtle and Samurai.
Man, I hope they expand it!
Hope my house or truck sell soon! I'm buying that watch as soon as one of them sell. I saw it on a Seiko site the other day. Beautiful!
