    Hey everyone, I've been looking through Ebay for a new watch, and came across this. It's an automatic Seiko, and I'm guessing a special edition or line for the Japanese market. It's not my personal style, but I thought some of you guys might dig it. I think that $235 is a decent price for it.

    Can't afford it, but it looks awesome. Is there any relation between Riki and Junya?

    Don't know, but I'd doubt it. "Watanabe" is sort of like the Japanese "Jones" or "Smith" or "Johnson."

    very nice find, thanks for sharing. My next watch will probably be a Seiko, but I got my eye on another model.

    Ah, just found some more info and pics on them.

    http://www.gmtplusnine.com/2007/03/2...-a-step-above/

    Damn, I really dig the one with the black dial now.


    Ya the black dial does look better. I find the combination of markers and hands on the white dial version too incongruous.


    Wish the line were powered by Seiko's new 6R15 movement though. The non-hacking 7S26 doesn't cut it if you have a 3+ watches rotation.

    Can anyone provide a link for a online retailer in Japan, preferably through Rakuten stores. This would be my first non-Swiss watch, help me realize this dream. Thanks!
