I actually had the same concerns. I’m just worried about the longevity and the servicing options of the movement. Which is why I skipped on it. But if the price is right, I might get it down the road.

Roppongi, Shinjuku is a good place to start. I’ve not checked out the donkis in eastern tokyo yet. So there might be some good deals there. The Yokohama mega donki in Minato Mirai unfortunately didn’t have a luxury watch section. There are still deals to be found, just gotta hunt for them.

Also you can shop elsewhere too, such as watchnian, daikokuya, moonphase and Ginza rasin. Great deals there with the weak yen now.

Unfortunately, prices have gone up. For the Seamaster, substantially too (from 550,000 to 700,000 in most cases). But I would advise going to the lesser known Donki locations. Not in the major touristy areas. Then again not all Donkis have a luxury watch section, so some hunting is required.

Good luck!

Agreed. The strap is very soft and malleable but the part close to the spring bars is pretty stiff

Ah. I was actually contemplating buying that piece. Love the brown dial.

My favourite is my IWC Le Petit Prince Chronograph.
