    Yes, I finally decided to go and make the run for it. After reading countless reviews and pouring over everyone's input (Big thanks going to Hiro1963), I decided to take the plunge.

    I think I can live with the 39mm case just fine. This watch is not that much smaller compared to my late Orient Mako diver. Also, both of my Seiko SARB 6r15 dress watches check at 38.5mm and they both look just fine and proportionate to my 6.5 inch wrist.

    Aside from the size concerns, this piece reviews fairly well. What attracts me to it is the very fact that this is the only sub $500 high accuracy quartz diver with perpetual calendar and long life battery in the market today.

    Thanks all for the invaluable feedback received.

    Great looking watch. I was so close to going with that one. Ultimately solar and titanium won out for me. Congrats on the new watch.

    Hey Howie!

    Good to see you around here again

    Did you ever get the problems with your Citizen Grand Complication sorted?

    The model number of this Seiko Prospex diver is SBCM023 and it is only sold in the Japanese domestic market. PM me and I can give you all the info you need to get one.

    Default Hey Congrats Minidriver on the fine score of your 1st Seiko diver

    I'm glad you finally scored it man & you know that the 8F35 quartz caliber is a finely crafted hi-torque/HE machine like Seikos other high quality quartz calibers. The perpetual calendar is just such a sweet & desired system that many wish they had in there quartz watches.

    Very nice Frank & Congrats,

    Jimmy
