That looks great, I just wish it did not have the 5 logo and the "sports" mark... it could be a good base for some projects too... ;)

Why do so many people hate the 5 logo ?! :shrug: Most of the time I read where people wish the applied "SEIKO 5" badges weren't there.
Imo, that's detail, extra effort & more costly than just stamping it w/paint. Especially for watches in that $ range.

Because the “5” sucks. It is a constant reminder that you’re wearing a cheap watch. Most people want their inexpensive watch to appear to cost more than it does.

You guys have probably seen this, but here’s some Seiko 5 history.

WHY "5" ?

From the very start, Seiko 5 was created to be a watch whose performance would serve the demanding needs of the new 1960’s generation, who cared less for tradition and more about life. The watch had five key attributes :
1. Automatic winding
2. Day/date displayed in a single window
3. Water resistance
4. Recessed crown at the 4 o’clock position
5. Durable case and bracelet

Because it grew out of the watch itself, the name Seiko 5 was deemed to express what made Seiko great and was chosen. A simple and memorable name for a simple but serious watch.

That was fun

Edit, on a serious note that's a cool watch, wonder if you can just scrape off 5

Why “5”?

Who gives a shit. If ruins most modern Seiko dial... oh no wait that’s the “X”

Just because we deal with it, doesn't mean that we understand it... :think:
