I've got nothing worthwhile to offer here but somebody on Instagram posted up asking which Seikos we had with "SCUBA" and without the "X" on the dials and I was inspired to gather mine for a family photo. So let's consider this thread as an ode to the days before the big Prospex "X" was on most of the diver's!
Full disclosure, up until a few weeks ago I had the green SLA019 and while I bemoaned the inclusion of the "X" when I first received it, it really was a thing of beauty and that "X" quickly faded into the background for me.
