    Well I needed a catchy title.
    BTW the shells came from Cuba and it was a real sunny day when I took the pics. And I live just a couple of blocks from the beach at the mouth of the Fraser river.
    Pics are mandatory when yours arrives. It's 5 o'clock somewhere! Cheers

    Pix? You betcha... but next week since it is not due until Monday. For me right now, I am in snow removal mode and NOT collecting shells on the beach.

    BTW, it sure seems like this is one of the hottest Seiko watches out there right now if you look at the chatter on WUS and other watch fora. This model may become a staple of the Seiko divers lineup.

    Red seconds hand? I don't think I'd do that to mine, but that looks really sharp!

    A man's watch is a very cherished thing. You steal that, you might as well be stealing his soul.

    Mine arrived a few minutes ago, thanks to fedEx and eBay. It replaces a 7548-7000 that I need to get repaired. Joins a Steinhart Ocean 1 Vintage Red that came week before last.

    Life is good.

    BIG CONGRATS, ROADIE!!! That's an excellent choice for a diver. Your photos are A-ok, too. Fantastic.
    J-SAN, it's called Kamikaze at another forum because the watch is actually a Diver with a Pilot heritage (12, 3. 6 and 9 numerals) or if you prefer, a Pilot with a Diver heritage. As many know, the kamikazes were WWII pilots that would "dive" at/to their targets (diving pilots)....thus the nickname adopted by that forum.
    The watch is among my all-time favorite Seikos and many of you that own it know how heavy, substantial and comfortable it is on the wrist. I prefer this over my Monsters any day.
    Here's a pic of mine...all original with no mods though. I just love the bracelet, too.
