very sweet, Tom! congrats on that latest iteration of the Landmaster series!
Verrry Nice! The watch looks fantastic and I really dig that case. The whole thing looks like a step above from its 600M diver cousin.
How's the balance on the wrist?
Congrats on that beauty!
Thats looks like some heft to that bad boy.
Lets see some wrists shots. ;)
Enjoy that huge beast, such a sweet piece.
Tom just dropped a bomb!
Oooh-er! That's a bit nice!
It's absolutely outrageous...worthy of serious, serious drool!
Crazy 4 Orient!
Thanks everyone. There are a thousand things I could write, but first some stats, one more photo, and then more wearing.
Watch Tanaka spread * Seiko's product page
The model is SBDB003, introduced about a year ago, and is the second Prospex Spring Drive after the well-liked SBDB001 MM600 diver. The 5R66 movement is a so-called "true" GMT with three day's reserve and power indicator. List price is 577,500 Yen. It's titanium (note the uni-body design) and much lighter than its size suggests: officially 173 grams, but I've yet to weigh it for myself with two links removed. By my own measurements, the watch is 16mm tall, 44.5mm in diameter (and wears narrower because of the 4 o'clock crown), and 53mm long lug to lug.
The compass bezel is non-ratcheted and bidirectional- and glides with a precision feeling. The sapphire must be flat, the crown is screw down, the water resistance is 20 bar, and the 22mm bracelet - tapers to 18mm - is similar - or the same - as other Prospex divers and includes the extension feature. Notice the watch keeps the neat bezel retainer lug feature from the MM600- but with a critical difference! The 'slot pieces' next to the nut are attached to the body! Were you to remove the bracelet, there'd be no voids; rather you'd have a somewhat retro set of hooded (and drilled) lugs to conceivably mount any number of straps without looking too awkward.
