This has become my grab and go watch due to its versatility

Latest photo attempt with the "eggtronics style" light box (not to be confused with Gangham style!) :)

you need to get a little more light in there. right now the ?paper? is blocking enough light to make the image flat.

one of the "rigged" light boxes i've seen quite a bit of on DIY sites is essentially a rectangle of PVC pipes joined together with a sheet wrapped around it on top/left/right with a paper backdrop and the light shining through the sheet. another is a cardboard box with most of three sides (top/left/right) cut out and with a sheet wrapped for the same effect.

still a beautiful watch. :)

Really like this new NATO strap instead of the plain black nylon it came on.

NATO works well; like the watch too; sort of an Aviator style. I like Seikos, what case size is it?

It's a 41mm case, model SNZG15K1 and aviator enough that it looks good on the NATO. I wear it to work cause I'm not worried if something happens to it (work in a geochem assay lab with some nasty acids and chemicals). Seiko are one of the best for the price, which was only around $125.

That's great; should be around £100ish here in UK; although I'd hoped for it to be a smiden larger 43-44mm (I have a largish wrist @ 8 1/4in). I'll investigate.
