What's with the blood type RH, nationality, birth date, etc. information on the back of the watch?

IIRC, when these were first sold, Seiko offered custom engraving on the caseback with your identifying information, you know in case you got lost in a desert or while scaling Kilimanjaro so that rescuers could give you a transfusion in the field or identify your body.

I wonder how many people actually took them up on that?

First my Amphibia breaks, and then same thing happens to my new SNK803. At least I'm within the return period on the Seiko. It's not like I live an active lifestyle, maybe I just beat my meat too hard. Perhaps I should give up and get a quartz movement.

I found a source for the now-discontinued blue dial Scurfa with the salmon pips...I'm tempted.
