Seiko Tuna - A large and unsightly can of preserved fish from Japan, capable of being strapped to the wrist in order to facilitate luncheon on the move.

Diving Jezebel - A proportionately large and unsightly ring appended to the exterior of said cans of wrist-borne preserved fish, possibly used to indicate sell-by date, though evidence for this is purely circumstantial.

Shrouded Diver - A sadly deceased pelagic explorer, whose fate may or may not have been linked to the consumption of wrist-borne preserved fish (q.v.) prior to submersion.
