It says Special Edition.

I’m glad Seiko keeps that x on there. It’s stopped me from buying so many. At the same time I wish that x wasn’t there because I want so many, but that x plain sucks and my head can’t get around it.

Do we call this the STONAFT? STO NAFT? NATF-STO?Image

I swapped on the Angus Jubilee and couldn't be happier. Rainy day at the lake today, but it was clear skies yesterday. No matter the weather, the dial on this thing really pops and the brushed handset makes for nice contrast against the shiny dial. In the stock photos I had misgivings about the brushed hands but they look fantastic. Image

Arrived today! better late than never... Canada customs did their thing and the $90 duty/tax bill stole some of my pickup joy, but the watch looks good and a shout out to Mimo's for their customer service Image

Chapter ring is good, but the bezel on mine is slightly off (maybe a 1/4 click). Can't complain about it because the timing is insane- minus 15 after more than a week since I last set itImage
