Blue? Grey? Black? Which is the best dial colour?

Which dial colour should I go for? It's so tricky when they all have their pros and cons, but also when they all look so good. I'm very much keen to ask for a Seiko 5 SRPE watch for Christmas, but I'v...

As a person who has recently received their first mechanical watch (Seiko SRPE53), I think you should just get whichever you think strikes you as being the best experience. You want to look at the watch proudly on your wrist with interest and admiration at the different intricate parts. Both will be very pleasing I'm sure. Not having handwinding and hacking may prove an inconvenience from time to time, however, I think if it won't bother you that much, don't worry about it! You wouldn't buy an ugly Toyota Prius because it's got better fuel economy and you wouldn't spend £50,000 on a Tesla just because it had self driving. Good luck and Merry Christmas!

What an awesome watch!!! I'd love to own something similar in the future.

Cheers pal, much appreciated. Yeah I can afford it, but it’s just there’s options from Vostok that are also really cool and a bit cheaper

As a 16 year old new to watch collecting, I'd be intrigued to see your pt2 and pt3. I'm considering going for a Seiko SRPE53 which will be around £180. I am a working man, receiving around £60 a week, currently dailying a Casio MQ241E. As a first watch, I'm wondering whether to wait and go for something a bit cheaper or whether to go for it. As I've only been interested in this hobby for a couple of months, I don't want to splash out immediately. Maybe a cheaper watch would be a go to. Let me know!
