Thanks to Chino-san this amazing titanium bargain fell into my lap today. I just have to say Presage is the bomb. This one is the SARX055J, or Baby Snowflake. It has amazing semi zaratsu finish with brushed and polished bracelet, polished case, 40mm diameter, 50hr power reserve on 6R15. Surprised how silver dial looks but under magnifier you can see dimpling. Diashield titanium 106g.

Great looking watch, I would be interested in finding out how the diashield holds up over time. Congratulations.

This is genuinely erection-inducing.

As much as I'd like to say fuck Seiko in the ear for keeping such great pieces as JDM only, and not making them officially available elsewhere, it's hard for me to say "fuck them", when I see them making watches as cool as this one.

That's purdy. It makes my dick hard.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

Thanks peeps, I just reached the point where half my collection are Seikos. The 9S55/56 from 2010 era Grand Seiko s can be had for half or less the price of a new one. A lot of these Japanese owned watches were treated like a first born, just keep your eyes open for over polishing.

T'is a real, genuine beauty you got there, meyn bruder Yid! And that dial is more sumptuous than Aunt Sophie's potato kugel! (May God rest her dear, sweet soul...) I will be very interested to hear how this'n wears and tears with you in the coming weeks and months, as I'd like to compare it with my own Presage. Anyhow, tikenstein, I hope you enjoy the schmeckuss out of it!!! 8-)

Have eyeballed this model repeatedly and have read some reviews. From what I have read, it really is a great watch for the price.

The dial is absolutely amazing. How is the finish and bracelet quality vs GS?

If the GS finish is a 10 this is an eight. And under a thousand
