Regarding value I don't believe there is any substantial down side risk to either alternative.

Then there is cost of maintenance, not sure how easy parts come by for the vintage Seiko but for Rolex you will find plenty of both parts and watchmakers who are able to service at decent cost.

If both are as attractive to you I would go with the Rolex. Always chose that watch that speaks the most to your heart =)

It’s not a GS!
King Seiko is a discontinued line by Seiko, a level below GS.

Finishing may not be as good but I’m really happy with it!

Hi MWF!

I'm considering adding a vintage watch to my collection.
I've narrowed it down to between getting a Grand Seiko (5646 series) or a Rolex ( oysterdate or datejust).

Any opinion on which would be the better option?

Looking for something that won't break the bank, probably RM7k and below.

Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.

Rolex !! I’m also starting to get into it. Would be great if you could share your experience and how you source for it.

Thanks.

With the price range, you would get a better (higher-line) GS vs. an entry level Rolex. Would rather go for GS first, then collect more money to buy 5513 or 1016.
