    HI all. I've picked up an orange SBCZ011 and I'm very happy with it. I owned a Pepsi SKA and foolishly gave it away six months ago, regretted it ever since.



    Having this one though made me notice a couple of differences between the two. Most important is overall bezel quality. The SKA had a precise bezel but the feeling when you turned it and the sound was a major letdown. Felt and sounded like a tin can. Not with this one. It has precisely the right feel and the sound has a wonderful springy quality . Also, the coin edges are better machined and deeper, make for a better grip.



    Plus I have a feeling the crystal lies exactly flush with the bezel and not somewhat recessed inwards as in the SKA.



    I'm also under the impression the polished line on the case edge is somewhat higher polished than in the SKA but to confirm this I'd need to have another one at hand to compare.

    Just got an SKA413 from eBay. Came in yesterday. Very impressed.

    Sure friend, I picked it up direct from Japan at an auction so can't help you there. They pop up from time to time but they're hard to find even in Japan

    Does anyone know if this rubber strap is available from Seiko? If so, how would I go about getting one or two? I don't see anything like it in the aftermarket, as far as I can tell. Thanx in advance :)

    and . . . nice watch!

    Had mine for around 6 months now. Just ordered a double dome sapphire and some tools so I can change out the hardlex which I chipped a couple days ago while whipper-snipping, hit a patch of sand and...

    I'm still unsure how I will remove the movement, haven't found that posted anywhere yet.

    Anyone know where I should look?
