Seiko SPB259J1 Review

My most expensive watch.

This limited edition prospex Seiko Ginza is just stunning to look at.

How did I end up snagging one of the very LAST available ones in Norway? It was on a whim, as I saw someone having it and I became obsessed... The odd part is, I had sworn by start of Desember 2021 to not have any mechanic watches again, as I much prefer the lightweight, highly accurate and slim quartz ones. And the fact that mechanical ones need service lol.

Do I prefer Seikos own bracelets? No... They're either too tight or too loose for my skinny and spesific wrist. I'm currently using an amazing bracelet from StrapsCo. My watch maker asked StrapsCo to become a dealer because of me haha, and it worked, so he got it for me (he thought it looked awesome with the Ginza, and he was absolutely right!) and it actually fits my wrist perfectly!

As pictures show, it compliments my watch aswell!

I have worn this beauty alot at end of 2021 (like last week of 2021) and until half of feb 2022. I had to switch for a while due to waiting for a new bracelet that fits me well. It has EVERYTHING I need, and the lume is just amazing. Lasts me for maybe 10+ hours.

I am now going to wear it alot again as I now have a bracelet that I am comfortable with haha.  

Do I reccomend the alpinist Ginza? Definitively!

Lovely watch! Saw it shortly before the launch and then lost track of it. Really debating whether to pay the current premium price for that sublime dial. Enjoy your watch, great buy!!😊

I enjoy it every day, and I actually struggle to choose to wear something else lol. I am planning to save up for a GS one day, as I want a spring-drive~
