    You should post a pic of yours, I'd love to see what kind of band you got going on... or just another shot of the one I posted.

    Here's a horribly blurry shot, but it's as good as it gets w/ my iPhone.

    you'll notice the little metallic frame for the date is missing. I dropped my watch on some concrete surfaces a couple times and it popped out. I just had the watch guy remove it altogether.

    see I was right, even works perfectly on houndstooth! I think I'm probably going to go with a black stitched strap for sure.

    I like Seiko watches. They just work year after year and take just about anything you can put them through. I need a new dive watch and this is the one I'm eyeballing.

    OK, here's my new one. The biggest problem with it is that my Stowa Antea has all but been put out to pasture.

    I've fallen in love with this Seiko from Seiya Japan:

    http://www.seiyajapan.com/product/S-...z_SBCM023.html

    Superb watch for the price. I'll be getting one [​IMG]


    NICE!!!

    I first stumbled on this watch after seeing 0bscur1ty where his in the WAYWT thread, and I was instantly interestred. I did more research and kept comparing--only to want it more and hear nothing but good things about it.

    I've had mine for maybe two months, and I want to (and do) wear it every day.

    Oh, and its accuracy shouldn't be questioned, it laughs at you and says, "don't worry about it."

    I forgot to mention that after a solid two weeks, mine is 20 seconds ahead.

    Looks really nice on you, grim. Nice shot there.

    Needed a cheap sports watch. The first is what my friends recommended. Maybe I need new friends...

    That all depends on your friends. If they fly then it's a good choice.

    [​IMG] DO WANT. I think I like this most out of the three military Seikos, but a 41mm would look big on my puny wrist. Does anybody own this piece?

    That's very good for an automatic watch. Most are out by closer to a minute in that time period.

    How puny? If it's 6.25" or larger, a 41 mm. diameter case would probably work OK. These days 41 mm. is not considered big; we see 45 mm. and up in many watches. The current fashion in this regard seems to be bigger, and big watch faces on men's wrists are becoming commonplace.
