You've never had a Tuna?! WTF, Ed?

Lol - I think you'd like it for a couple months. :grin: That blue is nice.

I ordered blue- said I would PayPal. It didn't take me to a PayPal site- just said it was ordered and I got an email

Yep, never owned one. The "couple months" is what holds me back.

I believe they will email you an invoice in a day or two.

So on WUS one member states the 037 (as I mentioned over there, I refuse to call it blue fin) might not be a LE. That's fine but I'd like to know for sure as this model came out of nowhere

Hmm I've seen it available for sale from 3 different sellers thus far
Hmmm, I don't know then. Here's the message I got: "SBBN037 because of the Shop Limited model, does not arrival to our company". Sometimes I have to interpret as best I can.. Maybe this means it's limited to certain shops?

Possibly means that. I don't care for the LE hype any way however I wouldn't imagine the blue being a production model for some reason

There you go. :lol: One nice thing about it being a LE though (if it is) is that you won't automatically lose money if you flip it later on. Bad thing is you have to buy it when it's available rather than when it's convenient for you.

I like blue and I like this tuna. It would be better on the bracelet though.

Agreed JP. If I do go through with the purchase I'll immediately pair it with my 015 bracelet.

Torn a bit because I dig the 017 bezel and that's why I bought that one but this blue is just right

:paypal: Frickin' enablers... I've never owned a blue-dialed watch, or Tuna, and I've become quite the Seiko fanboy lately. I've been on the brink of pulling the trigger on a 017 several times lately, but I kept thinking it would be too similar to the 029 I've ordered. This should pair nicely with my 029 coming later this month.

Up at the top right you can click on the English option- or American flag

I did some clicking and it worked

If you can't see the American flag, go back to the Google search page, and there will be a "translate this page" link.

No American flag, but I think I figured it out. Thanks.
