    Depending on which model, you'd be surprised how much you can pick one up for on the used market.

    Personally, I'd love the brown dial with display caseback (chocolate sandwich).

    Nice. That Yobokies shroud almost made me pick one up, but I plan to get a Tuna later in the year.

    Oh nice. I've been wondering if I can just buy some tritium paint and just paint the hands on my watch.

    Amazingly, I just found this thread.

    Haha, you know what's up. =)

    It's been hard to get this thing off my wrist, it even dethroned my favorite SKX/PMMM mod.
