    Thanks - the size is what makes it particularly rare - going by memory it's either 38.5 or 39 mm.

    Right...that's why I liked it so much too, because I remember it was definitely large enough for me, and not a 35/36, etc. Thanks.

    ^ I'll be interested in the review of that Timex. I've seen a few photos of that pop up online in the past week and it looks to be about perfect in terms of size and simplicity and I have to imagine the price is more than fair.

    I do not know what the "Journal" is (curious), but in any case that Timex looks pretty nice.

    What are the dimensions? The lugs are good for that dial, Omega-like.

    I will be interested to read though what you think of the hour markers not "running through" the face but rather "sitting on top of" the much thinner minute markers. That detail looks very odd to me, even irritating.

    I wish I could help you but I have no idea. Bought it from a guy on a Facebook Seiko group and he didn't have model info.
