The new Grand Seiko GMT sport collection looks great. I saw the blue dial, and green dial version. I have to say, the watch is beautiful. Looks nicer than a Rolex. The SBGN005G is my preference. It’s craftsmanship, and material is top notch.

I've owned a couple of Samurai watches, Ti and SS, but not that particular watch. They are a bit thick when compared to other Seiko divers.

Like most Seikos, they're a lot of watch for the money.

Was visiting Canada, and saw the new 2019 Seiko 5 models. Supposedly it replaces the SKX model. I loved the SRPD65K. It’s not sold in the states I hear, until October. Having seen both the SKX, and SRPD65K. I’m sold on the new Seiko 5 line. Price was $425.00 Canadien.

The new Seiko 5 Sport line are nice, but for the same money, I would rather have a Turtle.

Good choice, can't go wrong with Seiko - I love my SKX.

But a terrible 'best of' list (or is this post just a spam for them?). They list the skx twice, and their links are to online sellers who are iffy and WAY overpriced - looks more like a marketing tool than a real best-of. Try Island Watch (or other reliable vendors) for better selection and pricing.

I have an m-nato also and looks pretty hideous on most things especially a watch with red and blue already that dont match. Looks like a clown. Mine is more of a novelty just like the gulf livery one wouldn't actually put it on a watch unless a 10 year old was gonna wear it.

I guessed I like looking like a clown or maybe I'm just losing it as I approach my big 5-0

Love wearing my fun watch...why does everything have to be color coordinated or so dull? I also got the Gulf and Martini livery nato as well.

Nice Alpinist. Would like one, however I’m not paying way over MSRP.

That’s what’s stopping me. The other 3 colors don’t really do anything for me. The blue is a winner. Enjoy it.

The new ones have a cyclops... and a X on the dial... I would highly recommend getting the blue or an older green one


Regardless put a strapcode bracelet on it... feels like a $5-10k watch

Don’t like the cyclops on that watch. My SS Submariner Date, and SS 36mm DateJust have the cyclops. I also enjoy my Sarb033. A lot of watch for the price. If the green one didn’t have the gold indices, I would’ve got one. Not a fan of gold. I prefer a simple dial.

What sucks is when the Blue Alpinist went on sale. It’s was sold out within minutes. Grey market dealers bought them up to flip. Now us watch enthusiasts, have to pay the price. Even Hoodinkee had them in minutes. Total BS.

I actually don't mind having a cyclop, but there's no blue on the Prospex Alpinist and you still can't get it for less than $700! I would not want to pay more than $500 or so for an Alpinist
