Re: Arizona Fine Time

I bought from them a long time ago when they were one of the first Grand Seiko guys around. They were easy to work with back then.

Pulsar quartz 200m white dial diver. Looks sweet, and I'd bet about 5x cheaper than Seiko equivalent.
Yes. I believe this watch might have been about $50 new. I have two of them. :mrgreen:

Toxic Rogue - Gold Khaki 20mm only

This is one is darker than the last 22mm version I got in. It has more of a gold tint to it. Pretty sweet actually.

I love how they call it a “massive” case. :lol:


Do you guys think “Seiko black coating” is simply ion plated like their lesser watches or do you think it’s DLC?
