Lume is cool-looking but short in duration.

Smile I'm in ...

Such a nice piece. After seeing your post on the 3rd, I ordered one just like it right away! It's in transit, should have this week depending on customs. Picked up a few straps to mix & match too.

Nice - I'd love to see how various straps look with it.

Default JUST ORDERED ONE MYSELF!

love the pics, had ordered one a few days ago after checking all the online reviews, pics, and ebay lists or real compressors from 60s-70s.

this thing is a super accurate recreation of those. only difference i could find aside from the mineral crystal not being the original plastic (which is a good thing) was the marker on the internal bezel is not lumed, like most of them from back in the day. tho a watchmaker could easily lume it if interested.

also, and not a bad thing at all, is it takes a 24mm strap which is very cool, and is probably a few mm bigger than any of them were back then. but i think that's a plus. looking forward to getting it in a few days.

nice review and pics!

The domed crystal on this watch sticks out even higher then the one on my Logines Legend Diver. I just perused their website and the crystal is listed as Sapphire coated mineral, what the hell is that?

Super nice looking watch, love the case back, love the Seiko movement in it, also love the price, I see one in my future, if not this model, one of their others.
