What's not to believe?
umm, words coming out of your keyboard? unless you elaborate it in details. Because Rolex is a fine watch, I wouldn't call it the greatest watch, but a fine watch.

I was going to pull the trigger on a SARB033 then I just discovered the SARX035. Is it worth the price upgrade? Or is it just a personal preference for anti-reflective glass and a larger dial?

The RFD in me is having a hard time justifying the extra $$$ for the SARX.

Watches are a personal choice and quite frankly what makes them so expensive. Like how is a Rolex stainless steel sport watch worth $10k

Buy what tickles your fancy and not what others think.

The SArx is a bit bigger at 40mm vs 38mm. The bracelet is more intricate and has brushed facets. The movement is the same. But I admit the double price is hard to justify. The SARBs represent tremendous value, and my guess is that's why Seiko is slowly discontinuing the current line and introducing new models with the cheaper 4r movement.

I love the new Seiko watches and for me I would go for the SARX035. I'm not a fan of dainty watches and prefer the 42-44mm case size. I also don't like how the SARB has a '21 jewels' written on the face.

But you're right the price difference is something to consider.
Don't talk about it, be about it

Thanks for the feedback. I don't love the small size and the "23 jewels" on the face of the SARB033. I'll have to think about it and (as I thought) it sounds like it's just a personal and wallet preference.

My daily so far after getting married is a 41mm watch with a brown strap so I'm looking for something that is black face or black strap.

In the same style, check the Orient vintage power reserve
