Saw this watch, did my research and decided to give it a try as I loved my GWM5610-1 and wanted a) the updated module and b) a G with higher build quality. And…both are fantastic. The new module functions address every annoyance I had with the old one, and the GW5000 quality is amazing, especially the DLC coated screwback and the softer strap. I even prefer the new module’s backlight, strangely enough!
I am completely and totally satisfied with this watch. As far as this vendor, I ordered it on a Friday and it arrived to me on the next Tuesday. From Japan to the US Midwest. I was floored!
Do not hesitate.
fantastic watch - the premium feel on this watch is obvious - i have a g5600e-1 and being particular that I am, I wanted to see whether this one was going to be any better - here's what different with the gw5000:
1. dial reads clearer
2. watch is heavier
3. rubber, with buckle, has premium feel
4. backlight is white - light appears to come from left side but the entire background is lit
The watch is made by thitanium so is very lighter than steel bracelet.
Great watch, great service
Love my new Seiko, and it came all the way from Japan in only three days! Great service!
I liked the watch very much. The seller has no questions. We sent the order right away. Delivery to Ukraine took 16 days, traveled across Europe for a very long time. Of course, the clock was stuck at customs, in addition to the duty, I had to pay the broker for customs clearance services (it was this moment that was unpleasant, because the customs authority was in another city and had to fork out another $ 38 for broker services and $ 100 for customs clearance). In any case, it turned out cheaper than buying such a watch in my country, although I expected it to be cheaper.
First I just want to comment on the shipping speed. I ordered the watch on a Sunday in the USA and it was delivered the rolling Wednesday! 3 business days? That is what I am talking about. And now...
The Watch. Seiko SBDC101.. what more can you say? Classic 62mas style with the 6R movement, sapphire, DiaShield? Come one. This watch is a knock out! Absolutely in love with this watch. The machine finishing is top notch, it wears perfectly, and it's a real stunner! The sunburst dark grey bezel is beautiful out in the sun. Many of my customers have commented on the watch so far.
Right now this watch is hot along with the new Willard. Unfortunately they hard to come by at the moment. Ippo had it in stock at a price which I was better than anyone who had one in stock.
Definitely recommend buying any watch from Ippo. The fact that I received this item from Japan to the USA faster than other items I'm still waiting from from the USA says it all.
