    I just joined the Club.
    The shroud is just the standard SBBN007 shroud with a brushed finish applied. A gentlemen over on SCWF sells various types of screws for Tuna shrouds, if you need them, I can send you his contact info.

    This is the new SBBN 015 i recieved direct from Japan (DFJ) a few weeks ago.
    I sent it to Jack about a week after i recieved it, for a new Xtal, while it was there i asked him about Bead blasting, he assured me it would do what i was looking for.
    It exceeds my expectations.
    Consistant soft finsih, no shiny spots, great attention to detail.
    The new xtal is an improvent over the greyish tint of the hardex, but debateable to really being necessary, the Bead blast finish, for me, makes the watch even better that it already is, which is a truly great watch, now its a UGW, Ultra Great Watch.
    Jack at Industrial Watch Works was great to deal with and clearly a very skilled craftsman, nice to find for a change.
    Timely also, the entire process only took a couple of weeks.
    Hope the pictures bring out the very nice finish, i am sorry i did not have the energy to change lenses, i may have to reshoot this after i see how it posts.
    I cannot find a single detial the BBlasting missed, and no left over grit or lack of like new operation.
    Really pleased in all ways.
    Gary

    @area51: Looks great! The stock 015 bracelet had too much bling factor for me and I went with the 017. You sir just made the 015 perfect!

    Re: SBBN 015, new watch, new finish, Thank you Jack.

    Thx Swoop, i almost ordered the 017, for that exact reason, its just more elegant and subdued, however i could not get past the silver bezel, and no band, the steely band really is a great value, too many years of black bezels, glad you approve so far so good, of course it will be prone to showing scratches if it gets used that way.
    I just spotted a water spot on the xtal, thats what i get for not wiping it off before the pics, doh.One of the guys here ended up with both the 015 and 017 seven and was debatiing keeping both, no conflicts there, i would keep both and may end up with both, the reason of course is, just cuz.
    You also have a truly great watch in these times of mechanical silliness (TMS).

    Those are awesome pictures from the depths down under. The closest my Seiko Tuna gets to water is when I wash my hands. Thanks for the great pictures.

    Alex - Your 7549 is looking good, is it running as an automatic? When you post, you should include the before picture, the difference is hard to believe!!! Are those the hands you got from me?
