We normally focus on pre-owned watches but today we have something very special to offer - a brand new in box example of the now discontinued Japan Domestic model SARB033, the among watch fanatics immensely popular watch which in many ways resembles the Grand Seiko line.
This watch was manufactured exclusively for the Japanese domestic market until it was discontinued in 2018.
Many of our favourite Seiko models are the JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) ones, for example the divers SKX007/SKX009 and our green friend, the SARB017 - a watch with so much quality feel and a distinctive personality.
Anyone looking for a SARB033 will probably already know what they are looking for, so we won't go into much detail. There is plenty of information and reviews online. For example TGV at The Urban Gentry Channel on Youtube has produced loads of quality content about this watch, much recommended!
This watch is brand new in box and outer box, with stickers and it has never been worn. The plastic film on the bracelet is still in place. We took it out to take a picture of it and that's it. The NOS examples of this highly popular watch will become increasingly hard to get hold of so it is with mixed feelings we've let it stay this way. It would have been great to enjoy it but with iron willpower we decided not to.
This watch comes in its original box, Seiko guarantee (only valid in Japan), instruction booklet, and a certificate of authenticity from Arlington watches.
