    20170518_185108.jpg It has been worn less than 10 times. It doesn't wear bulky at all. Not too thick... one of my current favorites.

    I just purchased one of these a few weeks ago and it is amazing how bright it is in total darkness. You can't tell that from these pictures, but here are a couple more of mine. IMG_7551.JPG IMG_7552.JPG

    Looking for a leather strap for my new SARB033. Thinking perhaps a black shell cordovan strap from Fluco. If so, should I go with flat or padded?

    Any Deep Blue owners? I've just discovered the ridiculous depth ones, the original Master 2000 caught my eye in particular...

    Today I put my Baby Tuna on a ballistic nylon strap salvaged from a G-shock. It solved many issues I had with the bracelet when using the tuna as a summer beater: weight (this halved it; still substantial but not much more so than a G-shock), catching hair in between the links, scratching everything I rest my arm on, and the bracelet itself getting scratched, getting a precise wrist fit vs living with the gap between links, raising the massive chunk of metal a bit so my arm and wrist can move around without it getting in the way, and isolating my skin from metal in the heat with 100% humidity. I also think it looks good - black strap, black dial, both sort of mat. Tempted to take it sailing this weekend...

    Pretty happy with my modified Seiko 5 that arrived from Yobokies today. Omega Railmaster homage.

    My favorite Seiko is on my wrist on a pretty regular basis:

    Is it still visible at, say, 5am after hours in the dark? I've never owned a tritium lume watch, quite curious.
