    **** Which stays and which goes ****

    Well as you know am down sizing my collection have been for like forever so doubles time now you know those watches that are too close a match and always tend to pick one of them all the time. well this time it slightly more complicated I sorta like them both but only really wear one of them so the other is going to go . now which one would you choose ? and why ?

    8243 7000



    or the :

    7853-7020.



    both work well both have some wear to them, more noticeable on the 7853 but from the 70's what do you expect so which would you choice ?

    As always Ismy

    Sell them both, and with the money you earn from them go and buy that Patek you always wanted.

    Otherwise, it's a puzzle wrapped in an enigma inside a quandary.
    When we vote for one, are we voting for you to keep that one or send it off?
    Inquiring minds want to know.

    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    Academic now, but I'd have picked the same (to keep): Even with the 'meat & two veg' logo, the textured dial wins it for me.

    funny I was incline to the 8243 in some light the dial and case just pop but the other dial doesn't as the pattern dial seem to be none reflective so look duller in bright sunny light

    this ones the one I wore the most

    bit surprise with some of the responses thought the seiko lord quartz was something a bit special seiko did as a quartz alternative to the lordmatic seiko yeah think the logo they chose was a bit of a mistake but surprised that the option to sell both came up did not see that one coming
