I pay'd $192 aud for mine that's on the way and about the same for the 2 I already own ,,, Seiko 5's down here go from $350 - $550 , so mate ,,,,, NO Contest ! , I have 7 Seiko Divers in the step above the 5's like Turtles , Monsters . Baby Tuna's , Samurai's etc and mate these Aragons are as good or better than these Seiko's .
Not in all ways , hell I have an Omega 300m , Seiko Astron and Seiko MM and these ain't perfect at 4-7 grand , ( nothing is ! ) these have manufacturing defects , small yes but come on I don't expect my Aragon at $140aud to be as good as my Seiko MM 300m at 4.5k , but mate the Seiko is NOT 25x better ! nor is my Omega 75x better ,,, no way !
I will say one thing , this Seiko Astron GPS at 4k is almost to Grand Seiko quality , so I do know a good watch when I see one and Aragon are awesome !!! just don't expect perfection ,,, it ain't going to happen .
