SBP151 Willard watch head weighs 83g without spring bars.

Here's the watch on MM300 strap as promised. Love it!
Killer combo! Love the MM300 strap.
This watch is probably as close as Seiko has come to replicating one of their classic dive watch designs in a regular production piece. Tremendous. I keep saying I don't want one, but I kinda want one.

Same as Matt's SPB149, the 6R Willards (151 & 153) have hour and minutes hands that are half brushed and half polished.
I read someplace the 151's handset was fully polished. Might be mistaken, though.

Edit: my pic not the greatest, but 151 hands look fully polished

Maybe, haven't seen one in the flesh. Matt's 149 appear to have the same ones as ours 153's.

The MM300 strap was made for this watch. I didn’t care for it as much on the MM300.

I forgot how nice the MM300 strap is in that it doesn’t have a skin-biting metal keeper.

OK - Willard for me next. I have my almost 10 year old virgin MM300 rubber strap waiting for it.

This BC 400 strap looks pretty good on the 149.

83g is pretty darn good for a cushion case that sits well.
Damn I’m loving this wAtch.

Impressions of the 400? Been thinking about picking up another 300, and snagging a 400 as well.

It’s not mine. I’m pretty sure it’s only the clasp that is different. The strap in the photo looks to have a carbon pattern, also.
