you found were exceptional !

Outstanding watch, and watches sir. ..Outstanding strap !!!
No problem AT!

Definitely a wonderful craftsman and very detailed oriented like me, so we hit it off very well. Having said that, it took nearly 2 months to get a couple of my custom leather straps. He was about 2 weeks late from the time he told me it would be done and then the long journey from Ukraine to the U.S. Good thing it's not something I need urgently so the wait was ok.

Thanks a lot Bevo !

You know what's actually neat about it taking so long sir?! ..Is how it
shows how much hard work must going into creating the straps.

It's actually pretty incredible, and then like you said, they have to come
from the Ukraine. So that's cool as well, and makes the wait a lot more
understandable. In the end, it all worked out unbelievably well by the
looks of it.

Hope you are really enjoying !!!

Seiko 6105s in good condition are going for silly money at the moment, or you could have this TC9 1972 diver for around a third of the price. If bronze is not your thing they do the same shape in stainless steel and a PVD coated one too.

IMHO Homages can be eye candy too!
Absolutely no respect for Replicas tho.

I have several homages in my rotation, but I would never entertain a replica.
What does a replica say about the person wearing it?

A cheat as that person has cheated him/herself IMHO.

That TC9 is terrific Desk, and has this really neat way of standing
apart from so many of the bronze watches we see today !

On the one hand it doesn't look like what the other watch brands
are offering, but then at the same time it gives you the spirit of
watches not only from Seiko, but also Rolex, and almost has this
cool vintage, or maybe even futuristic prototype feel about !!!

The price is evidently great too ! ..It's ridiculously nice !!!
