    The case shape (side profile) is also not visible in the pictures. The case and crystal are really curved (not just domed) so fits great. I got one for my brother (brown/purple one).

Unfortunately that also means I spend my 2015 watch allowance in the first week of January lmao
    I have to say it looks it looks freaking amazing. Lucky you found someone so quick.

    You're in for a treat. The seconds hand is smooth, smooth, smooth. And the dial on this model has a lot going on - textures, finishes, and elevations. But it all comes together great. I know people always say "pictures don't do this watch justice". Pictures just don't do anything for this watch - it's all in the details of the dial with the seconds hand flying smoothly over it.

    I probably would have hung onto mine if had gotten to this version - black dial with the bracelet.

    Enjoy.
    Hi, just caught up with this. Your eloquent input is very much appreciated. If a little indifferent about the watch before, your description got me standing on the front step looking at my wrist and tapping my foot with nervous and impatient expectation.

    Thanks!

    I sold off all my affordable collection when I left Japan for home a few months ago. Just bought and receive a shipping notification on a Citizen bm6400 as a beater. If it doesn't work out, I'll unload it on my nephew.
