The watch that I bought from this seller works properly and is looks like the description. The costs of delivery are reasonably for shipping to northern Italy ($25). Delivery was very fast, I waited only 4 days (24 July - 27 July) even tough the package got caught for half a day in customs. The communication with the seller was not the best because I had to wait 1 - 2 weekdays for a reply but considering the seller is located in Japan, it is not a big concern. Overall, I would buy another item!

    Great Watch Deal

    Great watch deal. Watch was in perfect condition and genuine right down to the lousy strap Seiko includes. Having read the reviews I had an alternate strap ready. Love the watch. 39.5 diameter watches are rather small on my wrist but this one works. Comes in a plastic bag instead of a watch box but that does not matter to me. All the manual either were in Japanese so I didn't want them anyway. The green dial really pops in the sunlight. Second hand sweep is extremely smooth. You can tell this was one of Seiko's better automatic movements. Vendor has best price on Internet for this watch.

  • The Green Dial looks amazing!

    The Seiko Sarb017 is a beautiful watch. For it's cheap price and the value you are getting you can't really complain, but there are a few things which are not perfect. The compass bezel doesn't line up with the scale perfectly, I tried to move it back and forth with the lower crown, but I just cannot make it fit - maybe it needs something like a locked bezel position at the "North Pole". When you look very closely (I have noticed this only because I made a photography of the dial) you can actually see that the hands don't have perfect borders you can notice a slight grate. Also the dark leather armband you get with this watch does not fit the watch. It is way too glossy and dark... I recommend getting a brighter coloured strap. After all I can still recommend the watch to anyone who ...

  • The Seiko SARB017Alpinist JDM is an Incredible value

    This 5th generation JDM, 100% made in Japan, watch has it all. It has the excellent Seiko 6R15 movement so it is an automatic, and it also hacks and and hand winds. It has a flat sapphire crystal and it has 20 Bar/200 ft of water resistance with an engraved solid screw in back, and an engraved screw in crown. It has an excellent case size of 38mm and it has an internal compass bezel. The face is an incredible green that you either hate or love, with gold arabic numerals and indices which are very reflective and visible when in low light. The hands are also gold outlined with Seiko's famous lume infill. There are also lumed pips at every hour. My only possible "complaint" could be that the 12 o'clock pip is not double or distinguished from the other pips so if it is not on your writs ...

  • Get 'em while they're hot.

    For the price you pay for this product, the quality and features are seriously impressive. A watch with horological significance and history to match it's beauty and uniqueness. In a market with stocks of this watch reducing, I would say grab one now before the prices start to rise again. The only drawback of this watch is a lower frequency movement compared to swiss competitors or a Miyota high beat movement. Although this is offset by the higher power reserve.

  • Could easily be your one and only

    This watch is easily the most versatile I own. Its build-quality, ruggedness and style allow it to go anywhere, and do anything. The sapphire glass, 200m wr, and 6r15 movement allow it to be tough and reliable. Take it hiking, camping, snorkeling, or doing rough chores. It will keep working perfectly. It's also one of my most beautiful watches. The sunburst dial really is stunning. The cathedral hands are absolutely timeless. The compass ring unobtrusive, and if anyone were to notice it, it would simply imply to them that you are a cultured outdoorsman. This watch can go from the trail to a wedding, with merely a strap change. Or leave the strap the same and let it suggest your more daring side. Of the watches I own, this one was easily the best value.
