    As the thread Seikos!!! nears 1,000 posts I think we should consider adding a section for Seiko. The area for other watch brands has the eta emblem on it. Seikos are highly regarded amoung most here, and I think it is time Seiko gets the recognition it deserves. For me Seiko is always between first and second place with Omega, a good 80% of my watches are Seiko. Regards- Orion

    -1 to keep them under the radar and thus reasonably priced.

    +1 think it could end up more popular than some of the "other watch brands" even

    Never owned a Seiko. Never been on the Seiko Forum, if there is one.

    I can certainly think of others brands or ‘categories’ that deserve separate sections. Maybe add three or four more sections in the home screen, including Seiko.

    +1 ... I don’t own any but there is a significant fan club here. And why not? They are increasingly collectible and a major force in the watch industry.

    I usually browse and post from my iPhone, and I use the “latest” thread view which returns results from all sub-forums. I only go through the forum directory when looking at the FS threads. Adding anothe sub-forum wouldn’t change anything for someone like me.

    I’m with the separatists, sorting through my collection today and Seiko is in effect... and this thread needs an image.

    I ♥️ Seiko, and would certainly endorse a brand forum.

    Good thing you're over 200 posts. ;)

    Are you trying to be run off ΩF by an unruly mob carrying pitchforks and torches? ::confused2:: :eek:

    Ive asked before for this and I understand not wanting to clutter up the forum list and end up with WUS madness...

    But a lot of us are into Seiko esp vintage and more and more are seeing the upsides. The 2 Seiko forums out there are a bit sparse these days. I think if Any brand deserves its own sub forum here it’s Seiko.

    +1 Another vote here. Would love to see that. :thumbsup:

    I am also in the camp of going through the “latest” threads, but that view also shows the sub-forum. This helps with some of the less descriptive titles.

    No. Sometimes I just feel like emulating one of my OF heroes. And sometime I just stumble into it. :D

    I think a Seiko subforum would actually be more popular than the “high end watches” section and possibly the Zenith section.
