Hulk VS SRPD61 ?

Hello 馃憢, quick question !

So my dream watch is a Rolex HULK, but since it is going for north of $18K I can't imagine ever buying one.

To scratch the itch I have been considering getting the Seiko SRPD61.

Now I have never handled them both in real life as my local AD doesn't have them both, but has any of you guys compared them directly?

I'm specially inquiring about that green of Seiko because I know for a fact that Rolex's Money green is perfect but I don't know about the seiko's green.

Any comments would help, thanks.

I鈥檓 sure the seiko5 would be a nice option but you may also want to look at the spb103. The shade of green is less teal and closer to the Rolex.

I can鈥檛 speak to the color, although the Seiko seems a bit more teal in pictures at least. I can speak to the watch itself as I recently bought the SRPD51 (blue dial). It鈥檚 very nice watch and beautiful dial, I鈥檝e included a pic. It鈥檚 definitely not on par with Rolex quality obviously, but for the price I think it punches above its level. It probably wears similar to modern Submariner, although a tad bigger on my wrist than older Submariners. I think it鈥檚 worth buying, since I鈥檓 guessing you won鈥檛 be getting that Hulk anytime soon.

My heart says hulk, but my wallet says seiko 馃槄. That said, Orient has a green triton RA-AC0K02E10B you may like better with better materials than that Seiko.

Not the same green and a little uptick from a Seiko ,but I was wearing mine today and the comfort level and dimensions are 馃馃徏(chefs kiss). It鈥檚 my go to suggestion for people wanting a sub but dont want the price tag along with it. It鈥檚 bracelet rivals my Rolexes for comfort and the finish is luxury.

The Seiko 5 SRPD63 variant is greener than this model and close to the Rolex Hulk, but this variant comes with rose gold accents. The SRPD61 has a more teal hue but is still a shade of green.

Perhaps the Orient Kano?

What are your thoughts on homages? I have a hulk homage, it's great

You will never be disappointed with the Seiko.

The quality and status of the Rolex is higher. But not hudred times higher, like the price (literally).

Get the Seiko and enjoy life 馃槉

I like that shade of green but unfortunately the SPB103 is huge for me at 45mm

For the longest time I too thought that it was big, but when I tried the SRPD55 in real life it was perfect, the short L2L definitely helped.

I have a Rotary Henley GMT with a similar shade of green but it always looks grey or black indoors, it needs a lot of sunlight for the green to pup. I never seen this model in real life but I can only imagine that it's the same deal.
