I bought this very same watch (SRP779) from MassDrop three years ago for 229.99 plus 3.15 for shipping (to Canada), now it is $319 and $8.25 for shipping. Almost $100 more ... WHY?
You’re lucky. Sell the watch, pocket the difference, and put the money towards a quality watch that will last you a lifetime.

I hear what you are saying, but this is my daily beater watch. Neither do I own a rolex nor would I wear it daily if i did. I certainly would not accumulate 10-15 cheap watches (seiko or others) in place of 1 , 2 or 3 real pieces that can appreciate in value over period of time. one point you are omitting is that rolex, iwc, omega , etc ( i am not even mentioning patek, JLC, etc) do require an expensive servicing to keep them going
Hello Gentlemen. It’s been almost 6 months since my last post on the appropriately horrific DroopInvictuck Quartz chronogarbage collab when I dropped a horological pipebomb and unsubscribed from Droop. Imagine my surprise when I logged into my spam folder today and saw I was still getting emails. Not for new products, but for responses to comments on watches that were offered years ago but still making their sad pathetic rounds on Drop like an aged street walker looking to turn one last trick. As an an owner of 6 Seiko, 2 orients, and another couple of watches with Seiko movements, let me say they’re great for what they are. The problem is what they are is disposable. I’ve had minor issues with every single one over the years, and it’s not seiko’s fault. You simply get what you pay for. The fact they’re increasing prices but maintaining the same cheap quality control is even sadder. So what have I been doing these past 6 months? I’ve been avoiding droop and most other grey market bargain bins. I’ve taken the money I would’ve spent on these disposable trinkets and used it to add another real watch to my collection. Behold, the gentleman sized 40mm 114060 (not the atrociously large, new-money 41mm), a worthy addition alongside my 16622 Yachtmaster. Stop buying disposable watches. You’ll thank me later. You’re welcome. You’re all welcome.

See you project your pompousness by stating "you’re free to waste your money as you see fit." If you weren't a wanna be know it all you would simply say I am free to spend my money as I see fit. You don't know if I collect. You don't know for how long I may have been collecting. So you should assume nothing. You seem a little focused on the monetary value of these watches you seem to collect. The true collector collects what pleases them. Wil my Rolex be worth more than my Citizen Orca in 10 years. Who cares? I didn't buy my Rolex as an investment. And anyone who knows anything about watches understands Rolex is a very high quality watch but they're kind of like bellybuttons. Collect watches that make you happy and you want to wear. Focus a little less on perceived monetary value. And lighten up on the overly condescending tone. There is no need to be a pompous ass. I love to hear people who love watches talk about them but not when they demean others while doing so. Thank you. And you're welcome.

Yes agreed ,that would save a lot of people a lot of money. Unfortunately the use of "Rolex" as the example probably is far too expensive for a lot of the community to relate; but it is an understandable conclusion.

I've seen lower prices on the "K" models, but has anyone even noticed that this Drop are the "J" versions? Probably the same at the end, but another good point to consider this price. I'm getting mine even if I had to spend ~60 bucks more.

Seiko keeps trying to force everything under the prospex label and it just doesn't work. This is just a trumped up skx with same qc issues and a slightly better movement. If the skx didn't have such a killer design this would be seen more as a joke in the watch world.

Best if perhaps you have minnow-sized wrists and drive a '58 Edsel. For us guys with bigger flippers, who insist on a movement that hacks and winds, the SRP is the right tool. Not that we don't appreciate vintage watches as much as the next guy, but as I always say, real men wear real watches. Of course if you insist on wearing that rather dated form factor (for now obvious reasons), I've already pointed out in a previous post, the vastly superior Heimdallar SKX homage watch. That one winds, hacks, has a ceramic bezel, a sapphire crystal, comes with a nice Jubilee bracelet, and is powered by a Seiko NH36A movement. That one cost around $170 bucks, by the way.

Let me begin with a couple of points... First of all, there's no way this watch is worth $319, and second, you'd be foolish to pass up this deal. It goes without saying if you actually could buy it for less elsewhere, you'd be even more foolish to buy it here. That said, for all the pissing and moaning I've read below about MD's price on this drop, I'm not seeing anyone posting links to a better price. As a matter of fact, a quick search of the usual sources reveals most prices for the SRP777 are closer to, or well north of four-hundred smackers. Again, a price this watch positively isn't worth, but ignoring MD's price for the moment, I'd still say, if that was the best pice you could find, you'd be foolish to pass it up. While we're on the subject, here's another thought I'd like to express is: FUCK Seiko, and the norimono they road in on!!! And I say that most sincerely, as a long-time Seiko fan, going back to my first Seiko purchase in 1970/71. So what's the deal? Here's the damn deal: Seiko has lost their fucking mind! Once upon a time, a guy could buy a Seiko at a reasonable price and get a reasonable watch (the SRP777 above is a good example of those earlier offerings). Other examples that come to mind would be the first-third versions of the venerable Seiko Monster (most were priced at or just below, $200). Those days are rapidly coming to an end. First, because Seiko has absolutely lost their damn way from both a design/marketing perspectives, and certainly in their pricing structure. Even what passes as their entry level watches, the new Seiko 5 series (which, let's not beat around the bush, are total fucking shit), MSRP's range from $295 to $335 (the highest price, by the way, is for a watch sold on a six-dollar NATO strap)! Marketing for Seiko 5 series seems to revolve around kids on fucking skateboards:

And if that wasn't bad enough, now they've introduced their "Street Fighter LE Series" a selection that ranks right up their with Invicta's Marvel Comic line:

Please raise you hand if you're not eighteen, living at home, aren't working as a barista at Starbucks, and this sort of marketing appeals to you...

Now you might argue that Seiko also offers a their Prospex line for those of us who don't ride skateboards and play video games (ie: guys who have girlfriends). To which I'd say, fair enough, but point out that the latest Prospex version of the SRP777 above, the so called "King Turtle" now lists for $625. Yes, you finally get a sapphire crystal and a cyclops magnifier (the size of Denmark), but I still say, (even with the upgraded movement) it's NOT worth the extra $306 over and above what MD is selling the SRP777 for. Not to put too fine a point on it, but you could buy two SRP777s for what Seiko is selling the new SRPE03 for (and I'd wager, could sell them later for a profit). It seems to me that Seiko has wondered off the path and is heading straight for never-never land. Yes they make lots of adult watches too, but I say I don't really need a thousand-dollar quartz 300M Marine Master, and I sure as hell don't need a $2,300 quartz "1978 Quartz Saturation Diver's Re-creation Limited Edition Limited Edition of 1,978."

Frankly, I don't need a limited edition anything--a decent, reasonably priced, automatic diver would do just fine thanks. Which is why I say again, you'd be foolish to pass up MD's deal on the SRP777 at $319. Unless you can do better. Or, possibly, you're the kind of skateboard-riding, video game playing, twit Seiko is whispering to these days, in which case, I recommend the "Zangief" model:
search
At least that way, the rest of us will see you coming--even before we hear the klick-ity-klack of your damn skateboard! And by the way, yes, I do own a Seiko Turtle. Pretty sure I paid a little more than MD is asking for their's (and I upgraded it with a snappy Strapcode Oyster bracelet). But if I didn't already own one, I'd certainly jump head first into this drop ;- )

Wait for those 40% off Kohl's coupon, and stack with some other dollar off coupon, you can get a Seiko diver about $250 with about $50 Kohl's dollar to buy pajamas or shirts etc. You could also stock some Kohl's gift card at those times when Amazon offer 20% off.

Good advice--that's how I got my Samurai and snazzy gold SRPC44!

But I'm afraid good deals and coupons won't save Seiko from themselves.

I got momentarily excited to see a watch on here that I actually like for the first time in... months? Years?? The excitement soon faded when I saw the very ordinary asking price. (Great watch though!)

They’re not small, but these do wear considerably smaller than the case size indicates.

Amigos, Caveat Emptor! I bought the SEIKO CORE DIVER SKX AUTOMATIC WATCH which is a beautiful watch a year ago but soon realized it ran about 5 mins slow in one week but was somehow too late to make a claim for a refund. (I was travelling and not back in the U.S. to process it within Drop's 30 day window. The sale from Drop also did NOT include a warranty.) This IMHO is not acceptable for a watch that claims "quality." Check your watch immediately for accuracy and demand refund if it is is running late a min per day.

In this instance the OP’s watch is operating within the advertised and specified accuracy range for the 7S26 movement. Which is to say, at least some of the responsibility falls on the consumer to read the specs sheet and understand what the numbers mean and how they might impact the functioning of the watch. (Granted, his movement is at the outer limit of that range, but still.) As a matter of course, cheap movements can be adjusted to run fairly accurately, but adjusting every movement to run perfectly for such a mass produced model would have a huge impact on production costs, and you can bet those costs would be passed along to the consumer.

That's about the lowest price around the traps . Sometimes on special through Starbuy.com(mainly Seiko and Citizen brands), at your price. JC Penney was reasonable; shame Drop can't match it. If I was going to pay this price I would spend the little extra and buy the Glycine combat sub diver: ($349 and $399)Oh! I already have!!
