    Please forgive my asking questions in this thread instead of posting pictures, I just didn't think this warranted a new topic, and I don't feel like signing up to Timezone.

    Does anyone know the strap size for this Seiko? I'm going to order it from Roachman, but also want to order a leather band at the same time, because I don't like bracelets and don't want to wait to measure it myself. Thanks a lot.

    I'll also re-post this photo by sanrensho, which confirmed that I needed this watch as my first automatic, and needed it to have a leather strap.

    18mm would be my guess. Both mine and my brothers are Seiko 5s, both 18mm

    Thank you very much, I was guessing that as well.

    This is my Breitling Navitimer "The Red Arrows" - limited edition of 200. This is my everyday watch.

    I just realised I hadn't posted my latest in this thread - how remiss!

    Seiko SBCM023 Perpetual Calendar Diver:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Fitted with the 8F35 high-frequency quartz movement and rated as accurate to within 20 seconds a year. So far, after a month, it is +/- zero seconds. [​IMG]

    That plus the perpetual calendar, the fact it's a Prospex diver with 200m water resistance, 8 year battery with end of life indicator, great bracelet and lume, classic looks, terrific quality... I'm quite taken with it.

    Here are my twins, plus a Seiko OM that is not pictured [​IMG] Unfortunately, the Navitimer was restored just before I bought it, and now it's in perfect condition...I feel like IT wears ME sometimes( to borrow a clothing term) because it seems so fragile and easy to scratch. Might move it for something more robust

    Thanks. If you are after a Breitling, you should be able to specify the dial colour. A Navitimer is available with a white face and white dials. I have previously ordered a Breitling to my own specification, built up from the pictures in the brochure. Check out the Breitling site online.

    Not very pornographic but I'm excited about my new used Seiko Spirit. $150 on eBay. I've been wearing my Zenith on a daily basis and I thinkI'm better off with the Seiko in certain situations.

    Congratulations, thanks for sniping me on Ebay, 6 seconds before the auction ended. [​IMG] Just curious, do you use a snipe service? At least your photos look much better than the seller's.

    I guess I'll buy the SCVS013 from Seiya.

    Not quite watch p0rn, but has anyone noticed Tom Brokaw's Big Pilot?

    Nice to see one 'in the wild,' but I'm not so sure it works with a suit:

    Tom Brokaw's Big Pilot ........ but I'm not so sure it works with a suit:
    The pairing of a tool watch with a suit denotes a tool.
