    They're not cheap, but I've seen that one for 340 USD which was less than I expected.

    If you like Seiko, be sure to check out watches by Orient, too ....

    They are (now) a subsidiary of Seiko, and offer some incredible values.

    Here are a couple examples - ER24005W , FDB08005W .

    They are often discounted, too, but both of those will usually run about $150-200 (new).

    I have this watch. It was only produced for the Japanese market and, as mentioned, has been discontinued. I think I paid $250ish for it new. I bought from www.seiyajapan.com. Seiya resells Japanese-market watch models to buyers living outside of Japan and, as a seller, is good to go. If you want this Spirit model, keep an eye on the buy-sell subform at watchuseek.com. They pop up from time to time. You might even post a WTB thread there.

    Sure thing. I bet you find one through watchuseek. This Spirit model was very popular on that forum when it was on the market. EDIT: The nickname for this watch is "Blue Spark," so that might help in your search.

    Both K.Seiya San and Lee Wee Wah are very easy to deal with take paypal
    and typically ship EMS

    while I prefer vintage Seikos- you can not go wrong with a Seiko 5
    very affordable-durable and so many style choices.
    Browse thru Chronograph.com and see what you like
    there are a few other singapore based retailers -
    you just have to sniff around .

    Sarky if you find that watch for 340 buy as many as you can, IWC Portuguese F.A. Jones limited edition Is 25,000+ watch new. IWC's make Rolexes seem affordable.

    Dodgy indeed, quote from the site "We market the World’s Finest Womens Replica IWC Watches"
    Not trying to bust your chops, it just seemed out of place when talking bout Seikos. ;)

    It's probably a dodgy site. I was searching for a different white dialled IWC and spotted that one, which I liked more. I noticed the price but thought nothing of it, as I wasn't looking to buy (if only... :rolleyes_revamped:).

    Replica watches of famous brands are available for a fraction of the cost of the genuine article. But.........

    There are also homage watches looks similar to your fancy watches but a third of the price. I would love to get a hold of a homage watch.
    Especially the omega proplof.
