    Default Seiko Watches

    I'll started of with the sumo. The sumo is a JDM(Japan Domestic Model) prospex family lineup in seiko which is not available at most store in Singapore except for shops like superchronos @ Sim Lim Square, Big Times @ Sims Avenue & Sky Watches @ People's Park Complex or you can get it from the Big 3 Japan Online Shops like Seiya,Higuchi or Chino Watch but for this 3 overseas seller,you will need to factor in 7% GST as it's price is over SGD$400.

    The Sumo comes in 3 model standard models and some Limited Edition models which i will not want to touch on.

    The 3 models are : SBDC001 - Black dial black bezel with bracelet, SBDC003 - Blue dial blue bezel with bracelet & SBDC005 - Orange dial with black bezel with rubber strap.

    Price for a new piece will range from around minimum SGD$650 to max SGD$900 depends on which seller you goes to.

    Price for a pre-own piece from what i see at this forum range form Minimum SGD$400 to max SGD$750 depends on the condition and the completeness of the set.

    Technical Specs of the sumo as below.

    Automatic 200M Diver 6R15

    SS case & bracelet

    i believe if u dun mind pre-owned then the forum will be a good place to buy it cheaper as the 1st owner absorb the first depreciation.

    For new pieces, i think you can try rakuten.

    Just my 2 cents worth..
