Seiko SBDW005 - the kinetic titanium Landmaster. I had been searching for one of these for probably a year and one finally popped up in my WatchRecon alerts a couple of weeks ago and it’s now on my wrist.

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.

Missed out on this during the first release but was able to pick up one during the limited restock. I switched the original black strap for a color 8 cordovan. Not much of a watch person but this is something I truly love.
