      There's even a Sumo Zimbe Larry, but I think I prefer yours.

        yeah, found that out, pulled up a few of the Zimbes - there's one with a light blue dial that's pretty attractibe, but that yellow is striking. I like the satin black finish on the case and band, but that Welch's grape juice bezel would take me some getting used to.

        i've been down in the Seiko rabbit hole the past couple of evenings, found a ton more Marine Masters.....I'll give Seiko credit they've got a helluva business model, with one problem - they're rapidly approaching the point where their "Limited Editions" will outnumber their unlimited production models.

            Wearing The Fugu today, for the Singapore/Malaysia market, they say is rose gold plated but is more like bronze.
            It comes on a rubber strap and a Bond Nato and I get asked a lot if is a Gucci.
            Great article.

                  Nice one, that's a Sarpaneva I haven't seen before. I had the pleasure of dining 1-on-1 with Stepan in 13-14 years ago, in a connection made thru a friend from the NAWCC.
                  Quite a fascinating guy. I love some of his Korona models.

                  EDIT: this is impressive!

                    Dear Backlog,

                    Please post more because A) that's a neat diver and B) this place needs more Finns, Back when I was coaching wheelchair shooters in international and Paralympic competition, I knew many Finns. They were my favorite people. Don't ask me about Swedes.

                    In addition, all of this discussion about Seikos has gotten me to pull ths one out of the box. Comfortable, accurate, reliable, legible. What's not to like.
