The dial is just stunning in person. The ocean waves reminiscent of PP Nautilus but in a random order just like the waves and d-blue style gradient dial is extremely well done contrasting beautiful coarse brushed hands that remind me of coarse brushing on the older Rolex lugs.
Just an outstanding overall package. Everything lines up, the crown is very smooth for a Seiko

Amazing and great pairing too. Ordered mine last nightImageImage

I got mine from watches88
Brice ordered from I think it's called Mimo Jewelry
I also ordered from Mimi’s. They’re out of stock until 6/21.
Thanks. Ordered - couldn't resist. Please don't tell my wife Image

Thought it was in stock based on website, but got the June 21 note after ordering....

Got me beat. I'm up to 11 now as the digital Tuna came today. Still missing a turtle though.

Great looking watch, Art. The only reason I'm holding back from buying now is I'm still loving on my 053.

The thought that pops into my head after seeing the recent posts regarding that micro homage manufacturer is, for about $500, this Seiko kicks the crap out of them.

Thanks for making me feel more sane. I think I'm at 6 or 7 so this is great news. Need to show Michelle this post and say "see, I'm fine ... compared to those guys" :lol:

Image I tried to limit myself to only 10, but guess that rule went out the window. Really like this one!

Did they do any changes to the case back or is it the standard one?

Long Island Watch has them in stock. Price is a little high, as usual.

Does anyone with one of these also have a blue crafter blue strap? Wondering how the blue colours click and I've never seen either IRL.
