I've been looking at the Sumo and Shogun as well. Once I'm done building funds back up ...most likely will go for the Sumo. Thanks for the pixHaving owned/own a Rolex 16610, three separate Tags, Longines, 3 Sinns and an Eterna, I can say that the mid level Seiko’s ($400-$1K) are high quality watches.
Here is a few I have recently purchased. When you see the cost/quality of these watches, it makes you think twice about purchasing another Swiss model.
Seiko SBDC003 Blumo
Seiko SBDC007 Titanium “Shogun”
Seiko “Kinetic” GMT
