Go this during the sales, wanted the Black version initially but the blue caught my eye. Got it for around £180, down from £380 ish.

This is my first ever new Seiko, the reason I say that is because I have my fathers in my collection which is more of a keep sake for sentimental reasons. I must admit, I am smitten with the watch, good weight, size and the finish is top notch, better than I expected if I am really honest. I did consider the Astron range, but better to crawl than run at present when I have never really explored the Seiko range.

Great watch for that price, kinda regret selling my black version.. always reminded me of the Explorer but more wrist presence due to size.

I have looked that one over a few times myself. It's a Beauty. Don't be scared of the Astron. There are a few of us that have one and there are no regrets!

I have a few black bezel and faced watches, blue is not something I have really.

Nice! I had the polar version (Explorer II inspired, to say the least!). It is an excellent choice. As mentioned above, don't be afraid of moving up to the Astron line, they are amazing pieces (I've owned 2, down to 1 now)
