Finally got myself one of these great hunks of steel which ripples with affordable, refined quality.

Great pick up, though never a real diver fan myself, but there are enough original design features on the Seiko monster to deserve it's legendary recognition.

I am very puzzled why it is seldom seen on the wrists in Asia :?

Ace, thanks Ian. Gives me a good impression. Does it sit quite proudly off the wrist?

Good pics. Keep toying with getting one as my first seiko but end up gettting other watches, maybe this year.
