Finally an awesome GMT Tuna released by Seiko!!! I only wish that this watch was available in a solar version as well. This is the closest watch to the Limited 500 Golgo 13 version. The lume is awesome and best of all, it has a sapphire crystal, something that Seiko's recently begun adding to its premium dive watches!!!
If you see the 1977 movie Golgo 13: Kowloon Assignment starring Sonny Chiba, the mobster Rocky Brown wears a Seiko diver on a NATO strap. Although it was only briefly shown, it must be noted that a NATO strap was hard to come by at that time outside of England, not to mention a Seiko diver cost around $300, alot of money back in those days.
Just to let you know, a Chronosport Sea Quarz 30 made by Breitling (famously worn by Tom Selleck on Magnum PI) retailed for $200 brand new at around the same time, or half a month's paycheck. Breitling is a Swiss brand and they still make awesome dive watches, most of them self-winding automatic...
100 percent satisfied with this purchase. Arrived very well protected and fast. I have always loved Seiko watches this one is way nicer than picture shows. I have had the automatic Seiko Monster dive style watches in the past, they would tend to lose several minutes a month. This watch has been accurate beyond belief. I just changed the time for day light savings time it was dead on.
This is a very nice watch! It may not be for everyone due to it's size and weight. However the rubber strap is comfortable and much lighter than a metal version. The watch is quite thick so it sits high on the wrist which makes wearing long sleeve shirts a bit of challeng.The low light visibility is exceptional which more than makes up for any size issues.
