Seiko SARB033 and SARB035: Pure watch — Rescapement.
This isn’t a review as much as it’s an exaltation. The Seiko SARB033 and SARB035 are great watches — modern classics, as they say. Every time an example is posted on the watch exchange subreddit (r/watchexchange), it sells faster than a Hodinkee limited edition with a blue dial. To be sure, there’s ...

[Seiko SARB035] Hope you don’t mind if I flex a little bit... 😉
The SARB035 is such a versatile watch. Sad to see that Seiko discontinued the SARB line. Personally, I don’t think there has truly been a replacement to the SARB since Seiko raised their prices. Although it’s on the dressier side it’s my perfect everyday watch.

Seiko SARB035 [REVIEW] - The Best Automatic Watch Under $500 • The Slender Wrist
But I’m really nitpicking here. For the price, you really really can’t go wrong with this one. This watch might have been discontinued, but it’s still available at some Amazon seller

[SOTC] My amateur three watch collection
Seiko SARB035: my latest acquisition & replacement for the SNKL23 full box set I am gifting my father. Originally sourced an 033, but quickly realized these 035s are the real beauties. The cream dial literally blows me away. A lot of the pictures of this watch give it an appearance of just a flat beige dial, but In reality it is the most crisp of sunbursts I’ve had in a watch.

Seiko SARB035 Review: Discontinued, Not Forgotten | Two Broke Watch Snobs
If you decide that this watch is going to be a keeper, just go for the upgrade. Final Thoughts.
[Seiko] Graduation and birthday gift couldn’t have been better.
I initially wanted another divers/sports watch but i guess I was wrong about that. This SARB035 is absolutely beautiful. It’s literally similar to the Grand Seiko SLGH005 but like insanely cheaper, and I don’t complain about that at all. I also initially wasnt a fan of white faces but as soon as I opened the box I was literally in awe, it’s so beautiful.

[SOTC] 2 x German watches - Nomos & Sinn
I like the black and white contrast on the dial (not unlike a speedy or many other chronos) but this one comes in a neat package of 38.5mm. The fit and finish is really good at this price point for a chronograph - truly feels like a chrono made to be worn daily.
Discounted JDM Hype Beast Classic Automatic
The media could not be loaded. I needed a new strap on my watch, but I also knew I needed a new watch. The face on that was like big, I got a small wrist. I guess it was trendy with bigger faces. I'm older than, bigger role at work. Trying to act my part and look like a boss, can't be wearing a beat...

[Seiko] My first automatic!
Personally I would have preferred better lume or nothing at all. The way the lume dot is cut in half by the 12 o'clock marker is also a bummer, but it's not the end of the world. The dial in general feels really balanced to me, though, and the pin-stripes complement the Seiko 5 logo and text below, I think. I'd like to get the SARB035 before they're all gone sometime this year, both for the cleaner dial, the cream colour and beautiful layered lugs, but that's a lot of money for a student like me, so that'll take some saving up.
