Thread: Sleeper watch in Seiko's lineup for 2014

    Sleeper watch in Seiko's lineup for 2014

    I just got the new Prospex Kinetic GMT Diver, aka "Kinetic Tuna" after seeing it in person at the Seiko boutique in NYC, I knew I had to have it. It's getting the most wear right now of all my watches. Fit and finish is top notch.

    How much is that watch? For years I knew that the Monster series was their best lineup for the money. I still believe that.

    I really like this smoother case. I also like that they went with traditional Tuna hands with a little color. I don't know why they did not use these on the Spring Drive Tuna. These have a very interesting profile from both sides and I like how they built the lugs into the shroud. How efficient is the Kinetic charging (crown and wrist).

    Sigh. If only it were not a Kinetc...
    I just can't keep it charged. Too much work.
    Otherwise, I'd get one. A handsome piece, it is.

    I never can either. It's great if you don't have a big collection, or want to wear it almost daily.

    I've come close to buying the Seiko charger and letting members mail their watches to me for charging. I'm concerned about the liability of return shipping.

    The price is very good too. Nearly picked one up once or twice already. Enjoy.
