I really like the Sumo but it is too similar to my SSC015, as well as the cheaper SKA371. Plus isn't it $4-500?

It's 600 dollars and is one mm bigger than the SKA371, which looks almost the same and is the third the price. Sheesh.

They show up on Watch Recon relatively frequently but still go for about $500 in like new condition. I might even prefer the SKA371, which is still $189 on Amazon. Unlike myself, it seems that you have room in your collection for one of these. As you know, it is too similar to my SSC015; the SKA427 is still on my wishlist though.

My next auto watch, if I get one, will need the hand crown winding option, since I have 4 non hackable nonwinding autos right now, which need to be babied. It's like a job, a labor of love in some ways but the situation prohibits me from wearing my quartz watches. The Seiko SKA371 would be a great watch for someone starting their small collection. The price makes it one of the best values out there.

I'm still stuck in the vicious cycle with my Black Monster and SKZ267; if I don't wear one less frequently than every other day it stops. My SKA425 is all charged up and I haven't worn it in weeks, so I think there must be a tipping point. I did shake the SKA425 for a long time when I first got it, so maybe I need to do the same with the other two.

But yeah, I'm not getting another kinetic any time soon. The SUN007 and SKA427 will have to remain on the wishlist for awhile yet.

The kinetics keep their charge longer, a lot longer, than the autos. My SUN007 keeps ticking with one a week wear. And I suspect I could wear it less.
