Hello, he came in two weeks USA-PL. Not bad
Great watch. Picked it up a year ago from here although I got the white dial with blue hands one. I think the price was lower too.
Argh. I actually really like this design, but this is the one colorway that I don't care for.
Is there any chance to get the model with white dial and blue hands? I saw it in Amazon..

They have three versions of this watch at Jomashop, so probably elsewhere like World of Watches. The one with blue hands and black leather is actually the least expensive of the three (although, like you, I like it best) at $135. The other two, including the one for sale here, are $140, which leaves room for still making this a deal even with the taxes and shipping.  
For me there are two fundamentals in a watch.
  1. be able to tell the time on it
  2. not be ugly
I've never seen a watch that so completely fails on both counts.
Im pleased to see this is quartz imagine having to set all those complications every time it comes round in your rotation
I’m glad I didn’t listen to any of the negative reviews, I absolutely love this thing and am very glad I picked it up
Unless you're a giant, this watch is too big for your wrist. Full stop. I don't get the Guy Fieri watch trend, which thankfully seems to be somewhat dying out.

44 mm might be large but it's not gigantic.
They could just about squeeze in some more detail in the 3mm sq of dial next to the 4. some script in yet another different font would be good. Or another complication reminding me of when to wipe my ass.
I have this watch with a different face design.
It looks cool, in product shots. It's illegible in the flesh, to my aging eyes.
The pushers have low resistance and you are constantly going into chrono mode, which means your day is wrong. Getting it out of chrono mode is, I'm embarassed to say, something I always forgot how to do.
Setting the thing is a pain, and requries a trip to the manual. Every time. But it's quartz. You can set it once and when the battery dies chuck the watch in the trash.
Was looking to buy this watch but this is the best price you can get anywhere!

Amazon is selling the watch @$133

Well I bought this last year December I guess.
Very good price on an interesting watch, with a very busy dial. Tempting. The combination of alarm and perpetual calendar is very hard to find in an analog watch, at anywhere close to this price.
Quite possably the most hideous number font I have ever seen on a watch, was this designed by a psychopath, or a Clown on a bad trip?

I thought quite a decent font.. what would you prefer?
The black dial is available on jomashop for 127$ with 3 year Seiko warranty. That's what their warranty policy says.
What am I missing here?? Doesent paying 8$ more for manufacturer warranty makes more sense??
I got the rose gold one the last time. I like it fine. But here are some things to think about:
- The rose gold hands blend into the face and each other such that you need to take a glance and a half to see the time. The chronometer hand is so thin that I can barely see it.
- There's so much stuff on the dial that some hands block other hands. For instance, "What's the day of the week? Probably Friday, since the hour hand is in front of the place between Thursday and Saturday, and I can't see the day-of-the-week hand anywhere else. Yeah, there it is if I look a the watch face obliquely. Friday it is!" Or, "How many minutes has the timer gone? Dunno, let's wait 10 minutes until the minute hand rotates out of the way so we can see where the chronograph minutes hand is. Let's use another timer so we'll have a number to subtract from whatever the result turns out to be."
- The seconds at 9 are so small that I need a magnifier to set them.
- The chonograph seconds are at 6 and are so small that you need a magnifier to see them, so I don't time anything that will take more than a minute.
- The whole perpetual thing is kind of silly, since the date of the month is in microtype opposite the back end of the chronograph hand. Really tiny. I have to squint.
- The tachymeter ... did I mention tiny type? This is half-sized tiny. And you have to align it with the hard-to-see chronograph hand.
- Because of all the stuff going on on this watch, it's easy to screw something up when trying to set something. The best thing is to get it set up right and not change anything or use any features until the battery runs out. None of the features are that practical to use anyway as implemented.
Edit: I'm getting endorsemenhts for this post, so I thought I'd edit it to say that I never wear this watch anymore. The illegibility and difficulty of setting it, plus that it's quartz, has caused it to lose its appeal to me.

So glad I picked this one up, needed a rose gold two tone! Would definitely recommend this one as I have received many complements, great job massdrop!!!
I already own the white (actually very light cream) face, blue hands, black strap version of this watch (SPC131P1) and it is a BEAUTIFUL watch. Really classy looking and although the face looks very cluttered in the picture, in real life it is just so elegant! It is also the perfect size - I ordered the smaller SNDC31 as I also wanted the simpler face but found it way too small and feminine (gave it to my wife who is pretty small and she loves it). Have just ordered the white face, gold hands, brown leather strap version on Massdrop for $40 less than I paid for the first one on Amazon! Very happy with my purchase - thanks, Massdrop.
Got my watch it looks great, thanks. I had to pay duty in Canada but well worth it.
After I look around, I found this to be an excellent deal. So far, price in this style is the best, bars non (Amazon Jomashop etc) Quartz is good, old school solid goods, I had a very old Longines that is quartz and quartz 500m divers. Solid dress watch. This thing would be so expensive if is automatic (like a patek philippe will cost more than a avg. house), and I do love this do-it-all busy as dress watch, especially Seiko thoughtfully put a alarm in it.
Pros: This is not NUMBER but simple indicator edition compare to other 2 different style (which I hate, the hideous numeral indicator.....) Price: Massdrop did it right this time. Function: I had to learn leap year and other different setting by watching videos but this is well worth it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZbV5gsVo7Yw
Cons: I can't come up with a con, this is perpetual calendar QUARTZ watch, there ain't many option in this price range. Pair up with stainless steel watch bracelet to fit occasion. last thing I want to point out is the battery life, I don't know how long it will last.
Thanks for reading.

Battery lasts for 5 years according to the Seiko manual.

This is so surprising it almost makes me want one...
Common guyz, this is a Chrono + perpetual calendar. Of course there is a lot of information on the dial. This is a gorgeous watch. If you dont like busy dials, then you don like the Navitimer or the AP Barrichello II or a beautiful Wakmann Regatta Chronograph Lemania or less pricey Citizen Blue Angel or Red Arrow. Despite that this is a quartz watch, you can be the owner of a Seiko perpetual calendar + chrono for under 120 buks.
i'm actually sold on the white one, can we get some clarity on the style offered?
Everything is fine but I have not seen any information about it that I will have to pay the customs duty on delivery. :(

Depends from one country to another.
I added ten bucks and bought it from Amazon and had it in two days. I'm not very good at waiting ☺
OMG it's hideous!!! Burn it with fire!!! The numeral choice for this is so off, it makes the watch way too busy! Just my two cents LOL.
@massdrop: please make clear which colour is offered here. Description says white/roségold with brown straps, pics say black with black straps. Which is it now?
oof. almost had a seizure looking at that face.
Motorrad
It is really, REALLY stunning in real life!
MarkSA
I'm sure you think so.
Why are people saying the offered watch is white dial? Isnt it supposed to be the black dial version that's up for a drop here? The pics at Jomashop link show different watch models for the white and black dial versions.

Thanks for the reply. So am I right in assuming that this drop is for the black dial version?
TheYoungMunk
It would seem so. If there are multiple selections offered, there is usually a drop-down menu to select the color/model. In this instance, there is not. From there I deduce that black is the only option.
Very nice. Classic. I wants!
Model number?
Cloaca
Amazon search = SPC133.

Looks like the model number is SPC129P1.
