I sold mine as I felt the dial was too plasticky from some angles in bright light due to the textured dial. I still have the SBDC053 on bracelet which may go into SC at some stage.
Good to know. I do really like the 053, but the 055 stands out as a bit different - though sometimes that's not good in the long run. I assume they both wear the same?

Both wear the same - I thought the same about the 055 being a bit different, but having also had the 051 black, I feel it's a better watch without the textured dial and multi lume colours. If Seiko had made the 055 just with the blue to black dial and no pattern then I probably would've kept it.
Current collection incl Citizen, G-Shock, Rolex, Seiko, Sinn & Tag.

I'd love to see the 059 in real life, the green dial looks amazing. Seems fairly unlikely I'll stumble across one though

Seriously, I really really like this. Wish it had the display back.

Having now got my C60 Apex, I have developed an interest in skeleton watches with a power reserve and, having been mentioned in another thread, I reckon this is right up my street.

Titanium, 44mm, handwound with an insane 10 (ten) days power reserve.

It looks good, doesn't it. I'm also tempted by the prospect of a 36mm Speedbird.

The De Luxe created for the 1953 Everest expedition had a small seconds dial.

I agree it looks good. Often thought of buying one.

If I was still randomly buying I would have bought one last week. BNIB a week old. A decent price, 34% off RRP at £2,750.
