I'm gonna be the proud pa of a Seiko (my first), hopefully by the weekend. Nothing fancy, just the chrono with the big black face, orange hands, brushed case (I suppose I could get a pic going after I get it). I wanted the one with the nylon strap, but it doesn't seem to be available, so I had to settle for one with a metal bracelet, which is basically a non-issue anyway since I was going to take off the stock strap anyway and alternate Zulus/NATOs on it. EDIT: Dang, I might be a little pissed, as my impatience comes back to fuck me in the mouth. I guess the one with the bracelet is NOT a matte finish watch, so I have to assume its stainless. Who knows, maybe I'll really like it, but I think I really wanted the matte. Worst thing is, the dealer I initially ordered it for accepted the order before telling me it was out of stock. I assumed since this an older model seiko, it could be weeks, if EVER they get it into stock (you know, like it got phased out and the dealer still had it on the site?) So I cancelled that order and ordered the bracelet model off amazon, only to find out the original dealer got the new stock on RIGHT AFTER I PLACED MY ORDER. So, goddammit, haha. Ultimately I guess this isn't a big deal, I can always return the one I get and re-order the other one... just adds a whole week or two to the process.
