    I really love the design of that Seiko, but I'm not sure about the green dial. I think I need to see it in action, but if it was black, white, or even blue I'd be all over it in a heart beat.

    In the meantime, really digging the Seiko 5 SNZH55. Any thoughts?

    Trust me. The green dial is beautiful. Pictures don't do it justice. As for the diver you posted, I prefer the Black Monster. To me, it has a bit more "character." [​IMG]

    I thought it might be Fluco or CWS. I have been a bit suspicious of Fluco since they are priced pretty low for cordovan. CWS is almost double the price but they look really nice. I thought it might be them.

    No marks on the strap to identify the maker, but I'm 90% sure it's the Fluco. (Never heard of CWS) (Also, it has the Horween stamp like the Fluco picture.)

    Curious, what do you think of it? I was also looking at Fluco - they look nice and reasonably priced compared to most cordovan straps I've seen.

    Dammit. Just when I thought I had stopped lusting after the Stowa Marine.

    pronxs - what drove you to the polished over the matte finish? I'm sort of torn, I appreciate seeing your polished one "in the wild." How long have you had it, and have you found the polished finish to hold up well over time?

    Stowas are sexy.

    Loving both the Antea and the Marine. My only wish would be for them to offer them without a logo.

    I'm on the lookout for a diver. Either the Steinhart OVM or a SKX007 with sapphire crystal(yobokies). I really like the look of the Steinhart.

    I've always wondered what a Sumo would look like with a DiModell Pilot or chronissimo strap. They're shouldered, and so would make up for the lopsided appearance of the narrow bracelet.

    Thanks for all the great pics of the Alpinist. The white dial does look stunning hopefully Seiko will release them again. Higuchi doesn't have any Alpinist in stock till end September so will have to wait!

    Really like it. It's a quality product, and looks good.

    I're replaced the two defective Kent Wang watches with an Alba Riki Watanabe. It's a little small but I have tiny wrists so I think it works. I'll need to replace the cheap band it came with though.
