Nice, is that the Aviator SNE range? It seems to have a moveable bezel, the ones I'm finding don't. Can you please give a Model #.
Cheers

Derek SNE331, non movable bezel. I like the the case thickness of 10mm. Larger than my LaSalle at 3.5mm but smaller than my Invicta Subaqua 1590 at 18mm, lol.

Great looking watch.

Here's an old thread that talks about where Seiko's are made.

http://www.watchfreeks.com/23-seiko/17371-japan-not-japan-made.html

In short some are made in Japan, others (sometimes even the same model) are made in Malaysia or Thailand.
I found this at another watch forum: " - - - every Seiko at whatever price point is equal in quality no matter where the parts were stamped out, where they were assembled or where the whole thing was cased up. Seiko has a rigid set of manufacturing standards that all factories adhere to."

Now, that's nice to hear.

Eddie, thanks for the info. Looks like I was on the right track. Seems that yours has a coin edge bezel (?) Most I was seeing appeared to be smooth, but could just be my bad eyes. I see you are in San Jose, I'm in San Mateo, we should get a Bay Meet Up organized.
Again, like that unit a lot.
Cheers
Derek

Derek, yeah, I noticed that bezel edge too. I also though it was rotational, but it's not. I hang out in San Jose, Kapa'a, Kauai, Pahoa, Big Island of Hawaii, and the R Ranch in the Napa Hills. With a little time in Oakley, CA, near the Delta, and occasionally in Highland, Utah. If I'm not in the air, I'll be riding one of my 16 motorcycles, or admiring my small watch collection, lol.

Oh wow Eddie, I also have a place on Maui, and I have about the same number of motorcycles! I have a business partner that builds flat track bikes among other stuff. I also raced in the Vintage Flat Track series finishing in 6th in the Championship for vintage riders (50+) , before my eyes got too bad to race!
Cheers mate

I used to be a biker in my younger days, decided along the way I had to choose between Jack Daniels and Harley Davidson, since doing both would have ended with me dead before 50.

I choose Jack, although I do miss old Mr. Harley on occasions. I used to be the V.P. of the "Chicago Blue Knights" Police M.C. we actually looked raunchier then most of the 1%er gangs, we would pull up to biker rallies and chase the rat 1%ers out, since 95% of us were legally packing, ha ha.
