Very nice. Great layout too, everything seems to be very legible.
I'll take that back. The sonnerie is a spring drive. I think the eichi is mechanical.
Naw, the Eichi is also spring drive. Just a very sexified spring drive.
"Kenji Shiohara from the Micro Artist Studio sought out Philippe Dufour for advice on watch finishing when the Spring Drive Sonnerie was in development. And in typical Japanese fashion they took the advice and went even further. In a conversation with Mr Dufour a year ago, he expressed respect for Seiko’s fanatical dedication to quality."
From arguably one of my favorite posts ever.
i would agree with that. i had an ebel a while back that had a large date. it was nice, but the vertical separation was a bit of a peeve. even thought the digits were separated by thin bar between the 2 digits, essentially creating 2 windows, the separation was still noticeable.
reverso squadra hometime. i posted a pic a while back. i post another later if toy like. stock pics are easy to come buy, but it aint the same.
lolwat? that would be nice.
yes. any watch that has a battery/electrically powered energy source i would not call mechanical. but, im a watch douche, dont pay me no mind.
Understood - thanks. Aesthetics aside, I do find it helpful so I don't have to start re-setting the moonphase, which is a bit of a pain.
So, just figured out how to use a macro lens with my camera. Kind of embarrassing, but I am not much of a photog. Figured I would snap off some pictures for you guys! Never shot any good ones when I got my baby.
you certainly got the macro going on Newcomer... nice pix and nice watch!
Thanks! Note to self in the future--make sure to clean the watch off better! My pictures make it look like it is in way worse condition than it is .
Crazy thing is, is this is just with the watch on macro mode. My camera is wasted on me.
Great pics dude!

Love the up close and personal pics. How do you like your brown strap? Im thinking of getting a dark chocolate brown strap, or a light tan one...whats this color called? Anyone?
Well, being a SFer at heart, I LOVE the brown strap. Personally, I don't know if I could handle a black strap. I still don't think I own anything that is black. But this was the stock, dark brown strap. It is a really nice, warm color. I would really like a honey brown or a navy strap though.
You know, normally I'm down with complications and master chrono's, but there's just too much going on with that face.
Here's a stupid random Q:
Stopped by a jeweler today to look at some vintage subs. The salesman pronounced the name of the watch in the same way you would say Seattle Mariners. I always say it in the Hunt for Red October sense.
Tend to agree...but what really gets me is that year window.
Separate names with a comma.
