    Is this a new tuna?

    Saw this watch on the internet. Designation is Seiko Professional Diver S23619J1. Looks like a Tuna but doesn't have the "Marinemaster" on the dial. What's the difference?

    Anyone have any more info on this watch?

    Looks identical save the Marinemaster logo.

    Price is way higher than the JDM Marinemaster 1000m "Darth Tuna" and costs about the same as the "Emperor Tuna" with the auto 8L35 movement.
    Lots of dive watches.

    Didn't know about this one either. Very nice but the price has gotten a little high.

    Since the date is in English and Arabic, I am guessing it is an "export" version of a SBBN013. My SBBN021 back is almost the same. With the exception of the shroud and the "MarineMaster" it is nearly identical.

    Three thousand dollars for a quartz movement, I'm sorry but I just don't get it! Too many options that seem better for that kind of money.

    I can't imagine anyone will pay 3k for the quartz tuna when they can buy the auto version for the same amount. Perhaps the figure is a mistake.

    I think the automatic Tuna is a little bigger and much heavier? I get your point but I am sure there will be a market.
