If I squint my eyes and pretend it's close enough for me, and for the price who cares.

Gold is pretty close in color, no? Hard to get that warm hue of the ti-nitride just right but it looks legit.

They are pretty close, but the new rubber strap has shiny gold hardware on it. So it isn't perfect.

Just replace it with a black buckle and rubber keeper.

I have the sudden urge to check out one of these solar tunas, not sure which one yet though. Are you guys still digging them or did the love wear off?

Dope watch for the price. I don't think there is anything that could beat them in that price range.

There is one on WuS right now that is the oversees version that has a SS bracelet and not gold accents. I really want it.
I like that the size and weight is significantly less than my 015.

Still like my black/gold one.... Currently debating on the one posted above by Ben or a SRP777 (regular NAFT).
