Seiko SARX055 Review: The Baby Grand Seiko Snowflake

Post by Racer-X » December 2nd 2019, 10:40am

"The Seiko SARX055 is referred to by some as the baby Grand Seiko Snowflake due to its similarity to the Grand Seiko SBGA011. However, at approximately 1/5th the price of the Grand Seiko, the SARX055 is a much more obtainable watch. However price is relative. This watch can be obtained for just shy of $1,000 which for me was a doozy of a price tag. That being said, it was something I really wanted so I started saving up for it. When the money was saved and the time came to purchase it, I almost balked. It was only with encouragement from my then fiancee (now wife) that I was finally able to pull the trigger. So, was the money worth it for the Seiko SARX055? In short, yes. For the many reasons why, please read on."

Erection inducing to the max. Like visual Viagra.

It is beautiful - but as I advance deeper into a state of persnickety demeanor, I am no longer able to accommodate hands that are ALMOST the right size for the dial.

Even when they are finished in such a spectacular Grand Seiko manner: they are indeed very well-finished, but my eyes insist it they are 4mm too-short.

Interesting points of view on both sides regarding the length of hands...food for thought for me..
