Question Mystery watch

I have just ordered a watch. Not my final 2019 purchase but a little something to fill the gap. It's a mystery watch. See below:

Waiting for a brand expert to jump in good looking half of a diver though. I like the case and crown. Any particular feature set draw you to this watch?WR?give us some clues shaggy.

The watch it was modelled after (this is your first clue), landed in the shops five years after I was born (this is your second clue)

That's not very helpful at all. I have no idea how old you are but still a nice piece.

The correct answer has been given! 03.58 PM. BTW, clicking a profile picture (avatar) will reveal details like date of birth (if a member has chosen to share this).

Seiko NH35A. I have yet to receive a tracking number but expect it'll take a month.

All cryptic talk aside and in plain language, what did you buy?

Goodwatch:
Kudos on the acquisition. Luving it.

But I've made a late course correction.
Want to pickup a Citizen BN0150 quartz.

BN0150 is like one of those Sirens that
tempt ancient mariners.Now a full on Pro-
master freek. The Devil makes me do it!

Sharkey 62 Mas Shark. They don't make any mention of the Seiko brand whatsoever. I hope it doesn't turn out to be a lemon, this is my very first purchase of a completely unknown Chinese brand. Which doesn't mean anything. It will be shipped next week.

Oh nice Frans ! Congratulations, and thanks for this really
cool heads up you did !!!

To be 100% honest, didn't even know about this brand, and their amazing
homages actually. ..Just from looking at some of the pictures you can tell
that they are very true to the classic, and even new Seiko version though.

Going to go out on a limb, and say you will be impressed sir !
