Description

If you want something more substantial than a "Baby Tuna" but not as imposing as the "Emperor Tuna" and need to find your orientation while 200M below the surface, this is the watch for you!The Seiko (Prospex) SBDC011 utilizes the hardy 6R15 automatic movement with hacking and hand-winding, as well as quick-set date. The bezel has compass markings and a firm but smooth action so you can figure out directions given that you can figure out where the sun is. Housed in a tough stainless steel tuna can shroud, this is Seiko's answer to the directionally-challenged. Since I swallowed a pigeon last week, I find it to be superfluous in my collection and have therefore decided to let it go. Keep in mind that this is the Japanese Domestic Model, bought in Japan from Bic Camera in August 2015, and is pretty much impossible to find. Go ahead, try to find another. The new ones have the Prospex "X" logo on them and are still difficult to find, as well as more expensive. It has been worn in my collection rotation, so about 3 days per month, on average. It at +4/seconds per day when worn normally. Very minimal surface touches on the exterior of the brushed shroud, while the crystal and bezel are flawless. Lume is strong.All boxes, papers, and tags are included. The original strap with signed buckle was worn only a few days, as it did not go well with my skin tone unless I have more of a tan. And I rarely get that tan anymore. So I include that and a dark brown leather NATO strap from Crown & Buckle. The lug width is just a hair under 21mm, so you can put a 20mm strap on it or stuff a thin 22mm in there with no problems. Notice that although it seems a big watch (I have a 7.25" wrist), it wears quite handily (haha!) because the lug-to-lug is only 45mm, the same as the full outer case dimension.Watch will be well-packaged and shipped with trackable express service from Korea, so it takes less than 5 working days for delivery worldwide. I will also include some strange Korean snacks, a hand written note, and a long, black hair that inevitably gets attached to anything from Korea. $850 by PayPal and it is yours, int'l shipping included.
No trade offers unless you want to build up a complex higher value 2-for-1 with a Rolex Lady Datejust (cash +/- as needed). I'd entertain a handwound Navitimer or something from Nomos...but check my signature to see what I have going on before you offer me a handful of Invictas and Laco.
