Thanks for the link, very interesting I just wish Seiko would spend more time on quality assurance. I have returned far too due to quality control issues.
It won't stop me buying them though it is just a serious annoyance.

Might be common knowledge for some. I think the basic historical knowledge of horology is looked down on just when that curiosity is beginning. It should be encouraged and collected some where. Why not here.

What are the problems we should write a post of things to look for. Still watching the timekeeping on a turtle right now.

Far from it my friend I found the post very interesting, common knowledge for some but not most including myself. Peace.

I've never understood why so many collectors look down on Seiko's.

There's a lot of innovation there.

Unless I have the purpose of that presentation wrong and at the risk of sounding negative, that presentation has huge gaps in it as far as the history of Seiko's dive watches are concerned. Gaps that should be filled by some very important dive watches in the history of Seiko dive watches.

Well, can't satisfy everybody and that applies to just about every watch brand. Personally, I think they're missing out. I like Seikos, like em a lot.

I thought the same thing when I read it. Um, what about this iconic diver, what about that one?... etc.

Go check out the Pogue chronograph. Or the 6119 SOG. It just gets cooler. Let us know what you find.
