    Morning, yeah both Mako and Seiko are 42mm dia. The mako wears slightly smaller than the Seiko because the lug curve is different and I think the head is a tad smaller too.

    Hope thar helps

    Cheers

    Thanks reggie, i do like the seiko, but it can be had from jomashop brand new for £150 (going to states soon). Also the orange version is £130 from creation. Where did u get the Seiko from and condition etc? Any leeway on the price?

    Oh you never mentioned you were going the States.... Add in the price if a wjean shark mesh and you'll be paying a lot more.
    I can do it on the Z22 Seiko rubber band for £135 RMSD or £170 on the mesh. I bought 2nd hand just over 12mth's ago and it's not getting the use in my box full.
    You asked for a yellow watch but you now quote Orange ?
    I have an orange orient mako on bracelet if you're interested in that ?
    £80 RMSD tip top condition too

    Cheers

    I love the yellow seiko and prefer it, but could live with the orange from creation for £110 or could just get it from usa brand new for not very much more than your asking. Thanks for the replies

    No problem but as I said above - you never mentioned your were off to the States thus costs of most things, watches included, will be cheaper there.

    Reggie, with regards the Seiko on the rubber strap, do you have the box/any paperwork and could you add some more pictures please? Could you do it for a £100 collected? (I have a friend in Ecclestone who could come and collect from you). Let us know

    reggie can you post up some recent pics of the watch and confirm if you have the papers, box, warranty card, etc.
    If these are provided, I'd like to offer £150.

    Hello Baz,

    There would be no warranty available given that I've had the piece just over 12 months so I imagine it's well up. There are no papers supplied on a watch in this price category from me, only the box.
    The class of watch, on of the SKX series, is fairly commonplace thus any movement servicing and maintenance are easily obtained from a number of competent watch repairers nationwide. Not that it needs any of course.
    The SKX series is fairly bulletproof in it's design which as you probably know has been in production for many years now.

    I'd drop to £ 125 del'd on the Z22 rubber but that will be as low as I would go. The SKXA35 is a North American market model and was never available in the UK.
    I'm just about to pop out but I'll happily supply some pics on the thread later this evening.

    Best Regards...

    Thanks for the pics reggie. I appreciate what you say about paperwork etc and would be willing to go to £160 as I do like the watch but I like it better on the bracelet.
    No rush for reply if your busy I know we don't all live on here 24 7.

    Baz, thanks for your reply.....I assume you're referring to the shark mesh bracelet that it was shown on initially ?
    I'm happy to accept your revised offer of £ 160 RMSD if that's the case.

    Regards

    Baz, the initial shots were the wjean shark mesh but the latter more recent shots show a hard fought and much sought after "razor blade" type, as you can see in the shot below on my modded SKX007.
    [​IMG]

    Rocking Horse Droppings would best describe the availability of this so to include that would deffo ramp up the cost and to be honest, I sweated like a pig on a skewer getting hold of it in the first place, it's probably going to stay with me.....

    Thanks

    Zeeshy sorry to intrude on your post again but I thought I would update this for clarification purposes.
    Watch paid for and received. Very happy with it. BOY IS IT YELLOW.I'm so impressed with it overall for the money.
    I might need to post on what watch do you wear? now.
    Thanks reggie, a pleasure to trade with you on here.
