if you can get it for retail, go for it! but it's not worthy paying extra on the grey market

My Sky-Dweller has started to have a few problems - I’m unable to change the local time or the month properly. Is this something that will be covered by the warranty?

The watch is less than 1 year old.

Just signed up for this after being put onto it by a watch friend type. Basically a re-make of one of the 'dirty dozen' WW2 watches for the British Military.

Have had my eye on that myself, as I’ve been looking at buying a dirty dozen for quite a while now.

I’m in two minds;

1) I like the idea of a dirty dozen watch because of its history, that very watch on your wrist may have some interesting history behind it / been worn by a solider, which is basically why it’s cool. Whereas the Timor remake hasn’t any of that

2) on the flip side, it’s an old vintage watch which might have seen its best days, and the Timor remake will be a reliable new piece…

Still haven’t made my mind up

Any know if 118238 with pink dial is a factory config? There's one on watchbox, but I've never seen it before.

I think if you get one you gotta go original. They can still be had for decent prices.

I tried one on a while ago but felt it was too small for my wrist.
Might just buy one in the future and wear it for a while, probably just not used to seeing a smaller case size on my wrist.

I have one, for the money I think it's a great watch. It's quite bulky but still comfortable and there are some great details. I had a Rolex Sub LV a few years back but sold it and found this to be a good alternative.

I believe this is a Japanese market only Sumo - im assuming that's going to be a faff to get one?

https://www.sakurawatches.com/seiko-prospex-sumo-diver-limited-model-sbdc097 <- no address looks like fraud
https://global.rakuten.com/en/store/asr/item/sbdc097/ <- isnt clear how you can order to UK

Swede already checked mate. Nish there

Wembley I don't trust those 2 sites, no contact details no footprint online feels like a trap/risk.

I guess I should use zenmarket order that one from Rakuten, then pay for UPS shipping and mark the item as only being 700yen to avoid import fees?

Got a call saying my BB58 is in. Took less than 3 weeks when the expectation was 3 months. Maybe folk ahead of me passed on it.
