    Well, what did you expect?

    Yeah okay, actually I would have to consider an Alpine Eagle if it was under £10k.

    Actually, whilst on the topic of Digital, what two other Digital watches would you suggest to go with my Hamilton PSR?

    Got the Stainless with Green version, so did toy with getting the Black with Red when on offer recently, with a viewing to hunting down a decent deal on the popular Gold version.

    Decided to go for three totally different pieces though, hence open to cool suggestions, even though I already have a few in mind.

    I see you're into retro digital. It's cool, in a funky groovy kinda way.

    However for me, this pair of Seiko Speedtimers is more my style. Released to celebrate 100 years of Seiko. I just have a thing for pandas. :rolleyes:

    There’s no doubt that Panda’s are your thing. I think that’s why the Ikuzawa appeals to you so much. It fits in with the others, but is oh so different, which gives you something fresh from the norm which is always a good thing.

    Those Seiko’s are cool, but not for me.

    It is certainly an expensive piece, hence I would never buy, but it certainly appeals. It’s the same price in Welsh money btw.

    My apologies. I am highly uneducated and ignorant. Rob can attest to this.

    An here’s an IRL of the endlink “integration” on these Seiko Speedtimers:

    “An acquired taste” - is that how they say? :thumbsdown:

    A bit odd that they didn't better integrate the end-link. :confused:

    Perhaps they were going for an even more retro touch, when ill fitting end-links were more the norm. ::confused2::

    The 42mm size and 14.6mm thickness would require an in person try on, even if I decided to get one. Which I won't, as I'd always choose a Carrera Panda over one of these. Nevertheless, they have my attention. :coffee:

    Reminds me of my fiddy bay, the bracelet looks like it was an afterthought after finding a box of available bracelets they introduced for an entirely different watch
