Oh man, I just hopped on the Orient Envoy drop. I hope this comes around again, I'd love to get my hands on it.
Was this ssa cheaper last few drops? I don't remember it being at this price.

I bought it at this exact price last time it got a drop.

It was $189.99 in the last drop when I bought it.
An unboxing video of the SSA-231.

Is the model with the black hands going to be available again in a future drop?
oh man, id be all over it if it was the ssa213j2 instead. this one is similar, but not nearly as pretty
Are all the products on Massdrop authentic?
Victor7
Yes, I have bought several items, all are authentic.
Thanks for the input. I truly appreciate the feed back.
Hello, anyone know if its made in Japan? Thanks!

From the closeup of the face, Japan is not indicated which typically means assembled in Malaysia, however from much reading, the Japan marking between 6 and 7 on many seiko watches means assembled in Malaysia under supervision of a Japanese supervisor.

I bought one in the last drop, and it is a very nice piece, and yes not a "Made in Japan" version, more than likely made in Malaysia.
How much is the shipping cost to Israel?

Depends on your address you put once you're in the checkout.
After I pose these observations, I’m sure there will be many answers and theories. 1- Every watch I have seen on massdrop that uses Roman numerals has IIII at the 4 o’clock position. Unless someone has changed history, the Roman numeral for “4” is IV. There is no such numeral as IIII. 2- On this and many other watches, not all, have the numerals upside down from the V (5 o’clock) thru the VIII (8 o’clock). On Arabic numbered watches the 4 o’clock through the 8 o’clock position are correctly orientated. Also noted is the fact that the correct Roman numeral is used for 9 o’clock ( IX) not VIIII. Any thought, theories or general harrumphing?

There are stories about alignment and some stories related to some king's preference of the numeral 4. This is common with many watches. Even the famous Cartiers, Pateks, Audemars will have the IIII.

Pretty sure point 2 had to do with old sundials. They were often done that way as well.
Why are the roman numerals wrong? Look at the 4 it should be IV not IIII. The same with the orient watch drop going on
Wow as an engineer that makes me really sad.
I'm confused this model SSA231 isn't a premier model. Seeing that the watch itself isn't marked as a premier I think massdrop fucked up. Anyone got any information about this or is this another mislabeled product that massdrop is selling?

I have the blue variant. It is actually from the Presage line.
Edit: I have the SSA269J1 They appear to be different. Here is the drop for the Presage: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/seiko-presage-ssa-watch
Ive found this same model on Amazon for a comparable price..is there something Im missing? Ive noticed a fair amount of drops on this website all together can be found for a similar price elsewhere. which kinda removes the "Buy now before its too late".
Looks great. Too bad it doesn’t come with the black hands. Would have joined the drop if that was an option.
is this watch made in japan?

is the hand sapphire or black?
Probably shouldn't use the black handed model as the main drop image if it's not available on the drop.
DylanLeckie
Seriously, the other color options look like crap.
Kind of an open heart version of this past Seiko drop at $10 more, and without the sapphire:

Don't really got your comment, but UPS screwed the delivery and would only talk to the vendor. Jomashop never updated me with any status on my complaint (and I didn't steal the watch, so no customer scam here, but thanks for pointing that out). I called them, they said they would get back (5 times). I made a formal complaint on Amazon Pay and got a refund within 2 days. That's my personal experience with Jomashop, but I understand people may have different experiences.
jpocosta
I'll remember that about Amazon Pay. I used to use PayPal when I thought I might need to get a refund, but PayPal itself is such a complete scam company that I closed my account.
That sub dial just doesn't look right overlapping the open heart. Looks out of place, like an afterthought stuck on.

That would be a shame. Orient has its own niche and some very good in-house movements and designs. I have a couple of JDM Orients that see regular wrist time. The blue dial Sun and Moon always attracts attention.
Maltman
The corporate dissolution was on the legal level, but whether Orient is really just a brand slapped on Seiko watches is a different question. I don't think so at this point. I suspect that the employees and most facilities of the old Orient company are still separate. But I suspect that Orient shared Seiko resources even during the subsidiary period. Over time, however, Orient may become just another Seiko brand in the same category as Alba. Orient has some brand characteristics that presumably will remain, like conservative but quirky, open heart, skeleton, sun/moon.
Can you set the 24 hour sundial separately and use it as a GMT watch?
thebrowncoat
I don't know about this model but on many Seiko watches in this price range, the 24-hour dial is not independently settable and only indicates AM or PM. So, to me, not that useful, unless you live underground.
thebrowncoat
According to the manual, it is not independent. The crown has 2 positions, in which allows hand winding and out which stops the watch and allows setting time only, the 24 hour hand is not independent of the other hands.
I love these classic looking watches, but the lack of lume kills it for me.. I'm one of those people that wear a watch to bed..
