This one took over 3 weeks to get here, but it finally arrived. this Seiko 5 Auto, commonly called the Military version. Beige Dial, with Beige cloth strap.

41mm version. I have owned a few in the past, and either sold, traded, or gave away as gifts. I am going to make a serious effort to keep this one for a while.

I love the tan version of that. You can picture that watch being worn by naval personnel on a destroyer.
Cool stuff

Very nice Mike ! ..Think the way the dial is done on this is outstanding. That dual

level design is great with the chapter ring, and main dial. You can just really enjoy,

as well as appreciate the markings, and numbers so much imho. What a cool color

on it, along with the strap too. Beautiful finish by the way Mike. Congrats to you !

Nice one, the dial has great contrast, easy to read! I realized you can't actually manually wind these ones, only shake the watch to give the spring a couple of turns. Is that with other seikos as well?
