Hands-On: Seiko Prospex SRPC44, Dose of Golden Nostalgia

Hands-On: Seiko Prospex SRPC44, Dose of Golden Nostalgia

Postby Racer-X » June 27th 2018, 9:46pm

"From a quartz pocket watch my mother gifted to my father, to a tiny wristwatch on an expanding bracelet worn by my grandmother when I was quite young, my earliest memories of Seiko are all gold. Even years later, as I was just getting into watches, I recall being on a cruise to the Cayman Islands and seeing a huge Seiko chronograph in the duty-free shop. It was an SNA414, with a full gold finish, and recall asking myself “who would wear that?” More than a decade later, that chunky gold chronograph has kinda stuck with me. Today, it's a golden Seiko diver as I dip, not a toe, but rather fully step into the moving current of gold watches. "

Indeed. There is nothing about this watch that is ghey. It is beautiful. And I normally hate gold-plated watches. But this is different.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.
