Discounted JDM Hype Beast Classic Automatic
Reviewed in the United States on September 24, 2019
I needed a new strap on my watch, but I also knew I needed a new watch. The face on that was like big, I got a small wrist. I guess it was trendy with bigger faces.
I'm older than, bigger role at work. Trying to act my part and look like a boss, can't be wearing a beat up watch. Time for something fancy. Everything nowadays are still 40" to 42". I wanted to venture into automatics, the more I learned about them, the history, the mechanics, you can really appreciate it. It's hard to tell if you were gonna get a real one or not w/a SNK789. During this time I stumbled upon the SARB035. It looked good and classy. I do wish it was a like a SARX/SARY with the blue handle but it still looks good the way it is.
SARB035, it was discontinued, so i thought i give up. Amazon.com (an authorized seller). I thought maybe it was a 3rd party from Amazon, but nope, it clearly said Amazon.com. They provide 3 year warranty straight from Seiko. I read on forums, it was legit. But was it? I had to look at fake copies of the SARB which doesnt have the diamond on the seconds hand. The crown had an imprinted S. The shield on the back was wavy. I received the D (6r15d) version of the movement. people were saying that the d is a better version of the c that has less time/calibration issues? but I don't know anything about that stuff.
The watch sits at 38 which is a good size, i'm not use to a regular size case but it sits well. The cream is creamy. Off white. I like the automatic text on the bottom. It's 23 jewels, more fancy than the other 21s. Another thing that sold me on the watch that it's more water resistant at 100m meaning you can shower with it.
I been buying and trying different bands on it and haven't found the "right" one yet, but the simplicity of the watch makes me really happy. There's a lot of little details put into the watch.
People call this a Baby Grand Seiko, I guess it could be. The black face SARB033 is also pretty to look at.
