    Any idea where the Seiko SAGA007 will be available when released?

    Thank you,

  2. wristwatch said

    Hello Michael,

    The Seiko SAGA007 will only be available in Japan on November 16th, for 157,500 Yen retail. It’s limited to 300 pieces.

    I am new at buying watches outside of the United States.
    Do you have any suggestions on best places to buy? What I need to be careful with etc.

    Thanks so much for your thoughts.

    Hello Michael,

    First you should know exactly what model you want. This part is going to be hard, since you can’t touch, nor see that actual product. Once the item/items are shipped to you, its gonna be tough/costly returning it. If you know exactly what model you want, I can hook you up with some reputable dealers in Japan.

    Hi. Recently bought a Seiko SNA141 titanium chronograph alarm with green dial and nylon strap. I haven’t seen much online about this series (which evidently includes the SNN083, SND099, SNA107, etc.). Can you tell me anything more, like where they were originally sold?

  6. wristwatch said

    Hi Chad,

    I’ll do a little research and post a pictures and specifications of those models that you requested. It should be up within the week.


    Update! :

  7. Dr.Agnoor Preetam PhD said

    I am intrested in Rolex Airking oyster perpetual in steel with white dial and domed bazel. Could you give me more information on this particular model and list of authorized dealers in India. Would it be cheaper if I buy it directly from the company showroom in Switzerland. Please advice me accordingly.

    Hey Dr. Agnoor Preetam PhD,

    I’ve posted a reply in the Rolex Air-King page. Just follow the link below to read it.

    Do you have any thoughts regarding the Invicta.
    I am interested in the new 4464 or 4476

    Thank you

  10. wristwatch said

    Hi Michael, personally I would go for the 4464, mainly because its COSC. I guess the 4464 would be on par with the other luxury brands’ diver’s models. Both models look equally great, and there seems to be a growing following for Invicta watches, so I don’t think you could go wrong with any of the two. Another thing, if you plan to go swimming a lot with your watch, I don’t think the black ionic plating could take a beating, it might fade after a while.

    Hi Wristwatch,

    Are you planning on adding the Oceanus OCW-M800 watch model to your site? It looks like an interesting watch. Thanks!

    OCW-M800TBJ-1AJF: http://store.yahoo.co.jp/taiyodo/w0621.html

  12. Jon said

    I second the request for addition of the Oceanus OCW-M800 .

    I’d be particularly interested in a translation of the description of how its countdown feature functions. Seems fairly unique for a sub-$1,000 analog watch.


  13. wristwatch said

    Guys, I’m currently out of town, hence the lack of updates the past few days. Will put one up as soon as I get back. Cheers.

    I am looking for Seiko Kinetic, titanium case with sapphire glass (preferably dual tone case and bracelet – gold and titanium).
    I can’t find something similar in USA Seiko’s website so I guess it is a Japan domestic market (and Europe?) model. Where can I find more information and a reputable dealer from where to buy it?

    To my surprise I found something that looks like counterfeit Seiko watches ! (a place in Pakistan selling Seiko in “titanium” and with “sapphire” glass for 45-50$ (minimum 5 pieces). For this price I think it has to be a forgery.

    Thank you in advance for your help it will be kindly appreciated.

  15. Oceanus said

    Thanks Wristwatch, I appreciate it. Hope you’re having a good trip.

  16. wristwatch said

    Hello Voicu, do you mean, you’re looking for a model thats Titanium, two toned and with sapphire glass?

  17. Voicu said

    Yes sir that’s right. In 2000 I got a Citizen Eco-drive, titanium two tone , caliber A160 but with mineral glass (and I managed to scratch it).
    Unfortunately Citizen has no dual tone (in titanium) anymore (or I can’t find any).
    So I started looking at Seiko’s line and there are some models that have on the dial written Sapphire Kinetic Titanium (SKA335?). My problem is that I can’t find them on the US market. Also the quality of descriptions that I can find on ebay or various sites varies widely.
    Seiko also has a line that has “Kinetic Titanium” on the dial (SKA214 ?) but I think that is mineral glass not sapphire in these models.
    I really like titanium watches, the “maintenance-free” part of Eco-drive, Kinetic or solar cell, the fact the is harder to scratch sapphire…and if it is two-toned it is like the cherry on top of the cake 🙂 !
    Any help/info would be kindly appreciated!

  18. Voicu said

    It looks that I was wrong! Citizen has dual tone titanium? In their Exceed line? I only find pages in Japanese so I can’t figure it out if they are titanium or stainless steel.

  19. Ber10 said

    Can someone tell me were I can buy the Citizen i:virt? I went to several shops in Amsterdam (The Netherlands) but nobody seems to know this model. An internetshop is ok. Some advice would be very much appreciated certainly by my husband for whom I would like to buy the watch as a X-mas present.

    Hi people, I was lucky enough to find the Citizen Blue Angels SkyHawk Eco drive watch at a pawn shop for $60.05 US Dollars. Unfortionately the watch did not come with an instruction manual. Any chance you can post a link to an online manual so I can learn how to set this beautiful watch?

  35. Hello!

    When will we expect review of a Prometheus watch ?

  37. Looking for an EBEL perpetual chronograph with matching YG bracelet as available circa 80’s or newer. Had three at one time. Would like to begin wearing one if it can be found. A nice alternative to common Rolex’s.

    If you have one or more to sell please contact me at whisprwave@aol.com


  38. funkey said

    i’m just wondering where these coating specs informations came from such IP, PVD, DLC (i own a 2832) or Carbide. I had never seen this specs mentioned on any watch user guide and specs that claims they are.
    If this coating specs are really true, why do watch manufacturers wont include it on specs sheet.
    Or can anyone tell me where to look for it?

  39. kingracer said

    Does anyone know where I can find an Oceanus dealer in the Chicago area? The Oceanus website didn’t help me — one dealer (Abt) no longer sells them and the other (Laura Loyd) only had 2 models in stock.

    I’ve already done my homework online, and I’m on the verge of buying the m800. I only wish I could try it on my wrist and compare other models before sinking the cash.

    Many thanks

    Hello, please i’m in need of a reliable factory or an agent that can produce good quality custom design watch for a label. I hope you can help me. you can reply via my email for convinience. I really need help on this. Thank you

  43. Slavne said

    Is there a wrist watch with the following:
    1) analog hands
    2) white or bright face color
    3) atomic (Europe is a must)
    4) solar
    5) at least date of month.

    Everything else (like chronometers, tidal levels, or whatever) is a minus. Previously there has been Junghans (I own Vienna model), but the factory told me they are not making any solar watches any more unfortunately. Casio Oceanus is the closest as it is, but with miriads of unnecessary functions which greatly burdends the look and far outcomes any use that I can face.

  44. Slavne said

    I guess I just found the candidate: Citizen World Perpetual AT seems ok!

  45. Vangelis said

    Are, the Citizen PMD56-2971/72/73, multiband?Are they receiving in Europe?
    Very important.
    Any idea anyone?
