Looks nice but too formal. If there was less gold on it and simple leather belt without texture would probably go for it.

Homage to Portugeser? Wish I wasn't already overloaded with watches.

Nice looking watch. Too bad I just picked up another leather watch last week. If this had a metal strap, I'd be all over it, though I do dig the "croc leather" look...

Seiko is just always such a hit or miss if it'll look good on me. Always afraid to buy watches I've never seen in person.

This watch comes with Hardlex Mineral glass , Here is some info for you taken from watchuseek.com website:

Quote :
A LITTLE INFO. ON WATCH CRYSTALS:

There are four main types of crystals that concern us here: Sapphire, Seiko Proprietary, Acrylic & glass.

Artificial sapphire (as is used for watch crystals) is grown in a crystal lattice, unlike the flame-formed sapphire, like the kind you find in common graduation rings. The Sapphire crystals used in the overwhelming majority of watch crystals are artificially grown (in a boule. Once formed, the boule is then sliced and the pieces are then cut and polished to the desired shape. This material is very hard an resistant to scratches from common every day use, but it is also (like diamonds) brittle and has a tendency to shatter on impact (provided the impact is just right). Flame formed sapphire while chemically identical, lacks the internal crystalline structure and is much softer and brittle.

Hardlex is a Seiko proprietary type of hardened mineral crystal and comes in at least two different varieties (what goes in Seiko 5's is not the same quality of what goes into ISO divers). Hardlex is closer to 7 in the Moh's scale, but is much more flexible than sapphire. IOW's sapphire is harder but more brittle. Hardlex will scratch easier but resists impact much better. You can read more about Hardlex and the different types of it here:



Sapphlex is also a Seiko proprietary type of hardened mineral crystal that is laminated (layered on the outer side of the crystal) with sapphire. The idea being to provide the best of both sapphires's superior scratch resistance and Hardlex's superior impact resistance.

The types of plastics used to make acrylic crystals has varied widely throughout the years. From a performance POV there are acrylics out there which perform very well in professional divers (most dive computers today use acrylic crystals). The problems with acrylics are that although they can be made to be very very impact and preasure resistant (at least in higher end ones), they are highly susceptible to scratches from simple bumps that would normally not scratch a simple mineral crystal. Provided the scratches are not too deep, they can generally be easily buffed out with the appropriate tools.

Buffing out scratches on mineral crystals (of any kind - sapphire included) is possible, but difficult and time consuming. even then if you are able to remove the scratch, you run the risk of altering the shape of the crystal in that spot. There are no real guaranties as to the quality of results. Although it is possible, it is usually not worth the time and effort to repolish a mineral crystal. Also, since replacements are generally inexpensive, most people prefer to just replace them.
