Default New Seiko x Lowercase "Solar Tuna" for United Arrows

Has anyone had time to check out this new Seiko x Lowercase "Solar Tuna"
for United Arrows already?

The special Japan Domestic Market model is being made for the Japanese
retailer United Arrows, and will have details like a 42.7mm case, 200m WR,
black dial with cool Lumi Brite covered hands, and markers, and sporty
straps. On top of that, you have the solar V147 caliber movement inside.

Have a few pictures right here....





Worn & Wound, and Seiko Prospex with more everyone...

Definitely is a neat watch isn't it Art?!

The way the hands, and markers are done in this
almost vintage way adds a really nice feel to the
Tuna. Seems so clean, and sleek !

Think you are right on with both Seiko, and Citizen
honestly. At the end of the day the best way is to
just enjoy both of these great companies.
They are almost like two family members, where you
really don't want to favor one over the other.


P.S. Art, so cool you got to go to McGuire like that !
Can imagine at the time you were unbelievably busy
and maybe were not sure what state you had landed
in. ..Have never honestly been there, but it's neat
you got to check it out. Even if wasn't over the best
conditions.

Kind of a mini-Tuna, with really thin shroud, love the 62Mas hand set though!

Hey what a great nickname guys !! ..Really does fit perfectly.

Kind of has a whole toned down feel that is happening honestly, and a lot
of it really does look to do with the shroud, and more traditional hands.

It's funny how little subtle changes can actually transform a watch !

The Old Chazman lives about 12 miles away from Luke Air Force Base, where we used to do some Commissary shopping, but their prices are no better then the local Fry's or Safeway, so we hardly go there anymore.
