    i'm tempted to pull the trigger right now since my last 2 (holiday times) paychecks were decent enough that i can, without having to wait for my tax return... i'll probably only be able to hold out a few hours.

    That one is a Strapcode light grey NATO - but I'm thinking it looks great on a wide selection of grey, green and blue NATOs.

    I'm surprised how much I'm liking the bracelet too - but I need to add a link back in after swapping the clasp for one without a diver's extension and I'm having no luck shifting any of the pins. Anyone have any tips?

    Australian release comes with English/Chinese date wheel - I've left it in Chinese for now for a bit of variety. (I wish it was Japanese but Chinese is OK). I might pick up a JDM 777 for the Japanese date if/when they get released.

    I'm not regretting completely blowing my good intention to wait a couple of months. :) This watch has a WHOLE lot more wrist presence than say a SKX007 and the gold gives it a different look.

    Can't stop staring at this. It's quite lovely. Still can't believe Seiko reissued these. Now if only they would reissue the 6105...

    that's interesting, i've been around this board for a while and this is the first i'm seeing that Seiko printed Chinese language for 4R36 movements... learn something new every day

    I have not seen a $R36 movement with Chinese also. Of course up until last year when I got this Seiko 4004 Quartz watch from 1977, I was not aware that Seiko offered a Chinese daywheel at all(I know Citizen did) This particular watch was a Oceania market watch as it has a Chinese/Roman Numeral/English day wheel(my first watch with a triple day language).

    I would like a Seiko diver with a Chinese or Roman day wheel.

    I see Amazon now has the 775 and 777 listed - sold by Amazon affiliates, and the price is nothing special, but they are finally there.
