    This is a nice dive watch for not stupid money..

    It is over a grand!

    You could almost buy a bike for that.

    First and last Seiko I will ever buy!!!! (unless lost, stolen or broken)

    Been perfect, the only time I take it off, is when I wear my HRM.

    Big Thumbs up for Seiko……!!!!

    Yes but it's not stupid money for a nice watch. It's made from submarine steel which as any fule no is much better than surgical steel for dive watches 🙄

    Still I like Sinn watches they are good value.

    I don't disagree. It's just that most normal people think spending over £50 on a watch is madness.

    In the same way that bikes only cost £100 at most.

    I dive (Mixed Gas for over 10years & have been using a Closed Circuit Rebreather for the last 7years)all year round in the UK, doing about 80 dives a year, around 30 of those are in the 50-90m range(sport diving depths are a max of 40m), so I feel suitably qualified to comment. I have never worn a watch to go diving for over 12 years. All divers I know wear a dive computer & most wear a dive timer as a back up. Usage of computers & dive timers became mainstream in the 90s & dive watches were then made redundant for diving.
    I don't know anyone who wears a dive watch to go diving, the purpose of the watch was to monitor your dive time, the best dive timer (Uwatec) costs £80 & the battery will last about 7 years, so why on earth would someone wear a dive watch?

    I have one as do most divers, but it's only worn on dry land, I suppose it's a way of telling everyone in the pub they're a diver.

    I must say the rubber strap ones are great for MTBing, very rugged & waterproof.

    Does this explain the glut on the market and why stwers are tripping over themselves to wear them?

    I can see why you don't wear it to the pub 😉

    Lots of Rolex -bashing here. I've had citizens, Seiko, Breitling (that WAS sh1te) and recently got a rolex.

    Lovely watch, very very happy. Not for everyone but 'tis for me.

    That said my seiko flightmaster kinetic is superb too. The Citizen eco-drive (solar) is a better power option than kinetic IMO.

    Seiko customer service is very good too. Can't go wrong with one really.

    Sinn watches are superb, cheaper than the competion as they have a very small distributor network. As soon as I discovered Sinn the Rolex and Panerai got sold, I just hated the fact that the rolex was a status symbol and the panerai was a well overpriced fashion item. Sinns are tough, innovative, distintive and brilliant quality, absolutely my favorite watch brand by far now.

    Anyone got an idea how much this is worth?
    Its a rare 7T34 from the early 80's
    I've not worn it for years so might sell it.

    It's a bit battered and I think collectors are very big on condition. watchuseek is probably your best bet.
