    Smile Unboxing of my New Diver Classic

    I consider myself a true G-Fan for the most part but this is a non-G for me after a long while but when I saw this JDM, I had to have it. An instant classic was reborn, when Seiko decided to remake this old classic in their premium Prospex series with a high accuracy movement 8F35. It is specced to only 20s/year. However, most of the owners I know have seen it do much better gaining only a 1 second or less per month. Some of the included G-Values that we are very fond of are 8 Year battery, Perpetual Calender until the year 2100 and 200m Seiko certified Scuba Diver. Sure, you could spend 10 times and get a Grand Seiko or Citizen Chronomaster but I think SBCM023 Scuba Diver is a tremendous value for a real steal of a price. Get 'em while they are still available. I hope you all would like it. Really love that added bonus from Chino an artsy handkerchief or something. I am thinking I should have it framed. Very nice. Please let me know what you think...

    Congrats on the watch. I have the same watch and love it all around. It's a pleasant size, as well. not overly big and not too small.

    Always great to get a EMS delivery. Very nice. I love Seiko's. In fact I am deciding on 3 different ones now and have a tread on it in the Seiko forum. Thanks for posting here as I think it's good for G lovers to check out other brands and other theme forums here.

    Outstanding watch!
    These are my most similar, but the movement in that one is totally different!


    Suunto... Replacing Luck!
