    Really like mine. I can't seem to take it off my wrist lately. I picked mine up on ebay 2nd hand at a reasonable price not too long ago. I also picked up the PADI brand new but have decided to sell it without even wearing it. Finally a Seiko at a decent price with a sapphire crystal and a machined clasp. I wish they would do that on more models.

    Haven't seen one in person, but love the design and I am curious about the kinetic. However, it looks very big, even bigger then my tuna.

    Here's a stolen pic of the 019 next to an OSD. Now, the angle makes the 019 look way bigger than it is, but the OSD is no slouch itself and is one of the biggest Japanese divers out there. The photo's owner, who owns both watches, said the 019 is definitely bigger.

    It is bigger than the 300m Tunas and it wears bigger too. There's no way around this fact. But having the lugs integral to the shroud makes it wear quite comfortably on my 7.25"/7.5" wrist.

    Over a 3mm wetsuit it's obviously a non-issue.

    I think these wear the best on the silicone strap. I found the bracelet version a bit too heavy for my tastes.

    It doesn't look bigger, it is.

    Tuna vs SUN019:
    Case width: T=47.5mm; S=47mm
    Case length: T=47mm; S=51mm
    Case height: T=15mm; S=15mm
    Strap/bracelet/lugwidth: T=22mm; S=24mm
    Can't say anything about the weight, but the sun feels a bit heavier.

    However, on the correct strap, witch is a very personal preferrence, both of them wear great, but the tuna is a bit more quiet, the rotor from the kinetic makes some noise.

    And the obligatory images:
